The Strokes side projects have really been going strong lately. Guitarist Nick Valensi just launched his new band CRX, and now bassist Nikolai Fraiture is pushing forward with his group Summer Moon. He first teamed up with the Like’s Tennessee Thomas, Au Revoir Simone’s Erika Spring, and Lewis Lazar under the name Summer Moon way back in December 2014, but they’ve been pretty sparing in terms of actual recorded output. That may be about to change, though, as they’re finally officially releasing their song “With You Tonight,” which first surfaced in demo form over a year ago, and unveiling an entirely new lineup. Fraiture is now joined by Jane’s Addiction’s Stephen Perkins on drums, Uh Huh Her’s Camila Grey on keys and vocals, and the Airborne Toxic Event’s Noah Harmon on guitar, and the revamped Summer Moon have just announced a series of live dates in LA to celebrate their official debut single. Listen to “With You Tonight” and check out the dates below.
