Dave Davies of The Kinks has said that there’s only an “outside shot” of the band getting back together.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the guitarist explained that the chance of he and his brother reuniting to play shows was fading away.

"I'd say there's an outside shot," he said. "But where there's life, there's hope. I know Ray has a lot coming up, and I do as well, so we'll see how things span out in the next few months. A lot of it depends on how Ray and I feel by the end of the year, physically, emotionally and psychologically. I wish I could give you a more definitive answer, but I don't want to jump the gun."

Last year, news emerged that the two brothers had recorded some new material together, but it’s yet to surface.

Ray Davies spoke last year about the possibility of the brothers reuniting, explaining that it would hinge on them performing brand new material together. "We both agree we don’t want to do old stuff or tour with past hits. It’s got to be something new."

Julien Temple announced back in May that he will be directing a biopic about The Kinks called You Really Got Me - The Legend Of The Kinks. It will star Johnny Flynn and George Mackay, as well as being scored by the Waring siblings themselves. It was also written by Dick Clement and Ian LaFrenais, famous for their work on the beloved prison sitcom, Porridge.
