After 12 years, 16 guys who came together through online forums, BROCKHAMPTON has finished their final set and is ready for their last album rollout.
While a great performance, everyone in the audience and the people on the internet were overjoyed yet bittersweet about their final album being announced for 2022.
Brockhampton Final Album Announced
On Coachella Day 2, BROCKHAMPTON came to the stage to perform their last set, as announced 3 months prior via their Twitter account.

The set included hits like “Sweet,” “Bleach,” “Sugar” and “Bankroll,” while ending with “Summer.” When they were done with the set, Abstract thanked the audience for their love and support before revealing the big letters on the big screen, “THE FINAL ALBUM 2022.”
What started as a group of Kanye fans, who got together through the online forum KanyeToThe, BROCKHAMPTON came out with Saturation I, this was just the beginning of the Saturation Trilogy, which some still believe to be their peak.
While their contemporaries, Frank Ocean and Tyler the Creator were reinventing the wheel for black artists and the type of music they can make, BROCKHAMPTON was adamant about changing the perspective of the world about boy bands.
When asked what kind of group are they, the members proudly announced that they were a modern boy band. While during their time boy bands like One Direction and The Vamps were hitting it off with conventional media getting more mainstream and successful, BROCKHAMPTON were busy making music that will last with generations of R&B and Rap fans.
The Saturation Trilogy was big and explosive, with incredible verses and mellow soft singing lullabies it was everything that people wanted from the hip hop industry. All three albums were made and released in 2017 alone, alongside the creative and innovative music videos.
Twitter Reacts to Last Performance
The ones that this hiatus affects the most except for the band are the fans who have been there from the beginning and supported their artistry through the years since their initial coming together.
While an infinite hiatus was overdue for a group of the size of BROCKHAMPTON, it still hurts to see something as precious and influential as their music and live performances go away.
Call me cringe but brockhampton's 2017-2018 stuff was a cultural reset and I feel no cringe for getting caught in the hype

One fan, remembering the amazing pumped up times of the 2017 releases of influential albums such as Saturation Trilogy and their impact on the hip hop world, was a cultural reset.

Another fan tweeted a heartwarming message to the group themselves, telling them that the music that they have created in the past 7 years and how influential it was in their life. While they would never be able to attend a live performance they will support them and their careers always.
Brockhampton officially disbands tonight and although I outgrew them, I'll never not love the saturation trilogy

This fan, who like many other fans outgrew the group after their initial hype, felt a sort of saddening when the news for their final album hit the internet.
This might be the last performance of BROCKHAMPTON, and we are getting the final album by the group which started the career of 16 creative and influential individuals. The release date or the singles for the final album hasn’t been announced but you can expect the album to be out in 2022.
