The White Stripes are denying reports about their imminent demise. Mojo magazine and other British publications have quoted Jack White as saying the band will release one more album and then break up. White said he “never made a statement like ‘Elephant is our last record’ or ‘The one after Elephant is the last record.’ That’s stupid. It was actually Mojo magazine misquoting us, which is surprising because they are usually on the ball. I only said that the band isn’t going to last forever, and that maybe we’d just do a couple more albums and that would be it. But it wasn’t some fake retirement ploy crap, I hate when people do that.”

The new White Stripes album, Elephant, is at Number 13 in the U.S. and has spent two weeks at Number One in the U.K.

The White Stripes begin a four-night run on Late Night With Conan O’Brien on Tuesday (April 22).

The group’s next concert is Sunday (April 27) at the Coachella Valley Music Festival on the Empire Polo Field in Indio, California.
