Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard announces new band Bermuda Triangle

Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard just started a new band called Bermuda Triangle! Set to make their debut July 12 in Nashville, Bermuda Triangle is also comprised of folk artists Jesse Lafser and Becca Mancari.

Speaking with Ann Powers for NPR, Mancari implied that the project came together naturally and evolved from the threesomes casual jam sessions. "We just sit on each other's porches and play music," Mancari explained. "It's the music that I remember that I used to play before I even came to Nashville, when people just played for fun. That's my side of the story at least."

Mancari went on to say that fans should expect previously unreleased tunes, "drum machines, heavy harmonies and someone on a standup bass."

This  sounds  like  mighty good  music   coming  our  way for  sure.   k.d. lang  went  the  same  route  a  year  ago  teaming  up with  two other  women for  an album and  tour dates. Brittany Howard  is  a  powerhouse  musician and  I hope  this trio  makes their  way  to  Vancouver,  Canada.
