The guitarist, who also plays with Hot Chip, said articles quoting him calling an end to the band were not accurate.
"I would like to clarify that LCD have not disbanded," he said in a message on Hot Chip's website.
"Nor could the entity be disbanded in the sense that it has always had a revolving cast of players - it would be like saying that The Fall had disbanded, or Prince has split up."
He continued: "LCD Soundsystem is James Murphy, and he's allowed to take time off, do other things, and come back, or not come back. And he doesn't have to tell you or anyone else about it.
"Anyway, I should probably stop doing interviews after this, which is already my second chance. But the main point to take away is that more LCD music is in the pipeline, which is surely good news for everybody."
James Murphy's dance punk band have released two albums, 2005's self-titled debut and last year's Sound Of Silver LP.
