R.E.M’s Mike Mills elaborated on the fact that the band has no plans to tour in support of their forthcoming album, Collapse Into Now.
“For touring with us, we tour because we want to play. We don’t tour to support a record. We don’t tour to get our name out there. We tour because we like to play. To tour when your heart isn’t in it would be a real bad mistake for us. 2008 was a long hard year on the road and we’re just not feeling it right now. We go with our instinct. Our two biggest selling records ever, we didn’t tour on them. So maybe some of that magic will rub off on this one too.”
Watch R.E.M perform “Oh my Heart” in the studio.
