Supergrass split up in 2010 but reunited for a series of live shows in 2019. They later released a live album, Live On Other Planets, in 2020 to celebrate their 25th anniversary and raise money for grassroots venues affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Supergrass also performed at the Taylor Hawkins tribute concert at Wembley Stadium in September, after which Coombes confirmed on his social media that it would be the band’s last show of their reunion.

Now, Coombes has commented on the likelihood of another reunion happening in the future. “Reunions can’t go on forever and they’ve got to have some sort of lifespan. It was always gonna be that year, we were gonna do everything in 2020,” he said.

“But because of what happened with the pandemic, obviously it got spread out into two and a half, almost three years which is pretty crazy. But it’s cool that it ended in a way where we could definitely look at the possibility of other shows down the line if it feels right and if everyone’s in the right place.”

Coombes also discussed Billie Eilish being a fan of the band, revealing that she watched their set at Glastonbury last summer from the side of the stage.

“I didn’t see her but I heard she was singing along to ‘Sun Hits The Sky’ on our little viewing gantry [on The Other Stage] which was kind of cool,” Coombes said. “I’ve got huge respect for her. I think what she does is great and how she does it is cool. They’re an interesting writing team, Eilish and her brother [Finneas] as well.”
