Hard-Fi not sure about fourth album

Hard-Fi are playing live next month

Hard-Fi have admitted that they are unsure about releasing another album - because it will be tough to get people interested.

The band, once one of the UK's biggest, are back with a Best Of celebrating their 10th anniversary but have been very quiet for a couple of years.

Frontman Rich Archer says they will "play it by ear" after performing a live show at London's Bloomsbury Ballroom next month .

"We're ready and raring to go, but we're at a stage where we have to ask ourselves what we're doing next," he said.

"We're not kidding ourselves, if we put an album out, it's going to be really hard to get people interested.

"We're up for it. It's always been about music, but people's lives change."

Hard-Fi, which were formed in 2003, sold 1.2 million copies of their debut album Stars Of CCTV but sales of later albums later fell.

Rich said that broadband internet " meant that music was available for free to everyone, and that was the end of the industry".

He added that the band were "really excited" about the Best Of album and said of their future: "I've been producing other bands lately and I've always really enjoyed that side of things, so we'll see."

:: Hard-Fi Best Of 2004-2014 is released on January 27.

When others are at the helm, progress grinds to a halt. People deliberate endlessly over simple matters. Instead of putting pressure on the person in charge, make a strategic retreat. If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
