This means Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks won't be part of the group when it hits the road for more U.S. shows staring in October. However, at a special event at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles that same day, Wilson and Jardine -- who re-joined the group for the 50th anniversary festivities -- both said they were interested in continuing to work with their old band mates.
During a Q&A session held in conjunction with the opening of a new Beach Boys exhibit at the museum, the band was asked if the members' separate musical endeavors likely would mean that there'll be no follow-up to their 2012 studio effort That's Why God Made the Radio.
According to RollingStone.com, Jardine responded, "The Beach Boys is the real deal. I'm not interested in that other stuff."
Wilson, meanwhile, said he hopes group will head back into the studio in 2013.
"I wouldn't mind getting together with Mike [Love] and the guys and making an exciting rock & roll album," he declared, adding, "I'm sure by early next year we'll be ready to rock."
The Grammy Museum event also featured a five-song performance by The Beach Boys that included the classics "California Girls," "Help Me, Rhonda" and "I Get Around."
