Spoon's Britt Daniel Forms New Band, Divine Fits
Spoon frontman Britt Daniel has teamed up with Wolf Parade and Handsome Furs singer Dan Boeckner and Sam Brown of the New Bomb Turks to form a new band, Divine Fits. The trio's first record, as yet untitled, will be released later this year on Merge Records. It was produced by Nick Launay.
Though Spoon is still going strong and recently played a handful of dates in Texas, Boeckner's situation has been a lot less certain in recent months, as Wolf Parade announced an indefinite hiatus last year and Handsome Furs, his electro-punk band with his wife Alexei Perry, officially split in an announcement on Facebook last week.
