You can call them Mt Desolation from now on! Find out more here...
The Killers' drummer Ronnie Vannucci has teamed up with Keane keyboard player/song writer Tim Rice-Oxley as well as Noah & The Whale star Tom Hobden and Mumford & Son's Winston Marshall to form the collective band, Mt Desolation.
The new group are set to release an LP of alternative country songs later this year and will debut their new material with a gig in London on 4th June.
A post written on the Mt Desolation official website states: "Enlisting the help of friends from various other bands the newly formed group went into Eastcote studios in London at the snowy start of this year."
The post continued: "The end of the recording sessions marked the end of the first chapter of the story. As Mt Desolation begins its second chapter, the fun and excitement of making the music remains, except now instead of being confined to a recording studio it's being taken on the road to share with anyone who wants a part of it".
