United Nations of Sound
"Since The Verve broke up again (for the third time) after releasing 'Forth' in 2008, Ashcroft has started a new band - the awkwardly named United Nations of Sound (his ex-Verve bandmates Nick McCabe and Simon Jones have also started a new band - The Black Ships - with Davide Rossi from Goldfrapp).
The band has just released their first single: Are You Ready - which thumps and pounds along to Ashcroft's distinct vocals (and theosophical lyrics) before crescendoing into a Stones-like wall of guitar. The single was produced by No I.D. (Common, Kanye West) and is from the debut album, due to be released in late March." ~ National Post
Are you ready?
