Blur will "definitely" get back together this year.

The 'Song 2' band's future has remained in question since they played a handful of triumphant shows in 2009, but drummer Dave Rowntree is confident all four members of the group - which also includes Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon and Alex James - will get together in 2011.

He told website Gigwise.com: "We've got all our mates back and that's the main thing. That's the one thing we don't want to lose.

"So yes, this year I would say something is definitely going to happen. Quite when, I don't know, and quite what I don't know - but yes, we're all back together again and great mates."

Damon - who was on tour with his other project, Gorillaz, until the end of last year - has previously said Blur were to meet this month, and Dave said they are likely to decide whether to work on a new album or a one off single, like the limited release 'Fools Day' last year, which was the first new song by the group since 2003.

Dave added: "Who knows that it's going to end up like. What I do know is that we don't want to commit ourselves to anything vast at the moment."

While Damon has continued to pursue musical projects outside of Blur, Graham has launched a solo project, while Dave has moved into politics and Alex has moved to a farm and launched his own range of cheeses.
