Rock veterans Pink Floyd are to release their first new album in 20 years.

The legendary band will unveil “The Endless River” in October, their first new record since 1994’s “The Division Bell.”

The album is based on a series of tracks originally recorded in 1994 and previously intended for release under the title “The Big Spliff.”

Following the death of Pink Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright in 2008, David Gilmour and Nick Mason headed back into the studio to expand on the existing tracks and add some vocals to the songs.

However, fans hoping the news paves the way for a long-awaited reunion tour from the band are set for disappointment – a spokesman tells British newspaper The Sun on Sunday that the rockers will not be hitting the road to promote the album.
