Split Single in Chicago in January (more by Jeff Ryan)
Back in 2012, after Spoon's Britt Daniel formed the "supergroup" Divine Fits, he joined another new band, Split Single, which is the project of Jason Narducy (of Bob Mould's band and formerly of Verbow) and also features fellow Bob Mould collaborator Jon Wurster (also of Superchunk, Mountain Goats, etc) on drums. That band has been working on their debut album, and just finally announced that it's called Fragmented World, and will be out on April 1.
The band are planning to tour, though so far they've only announced SXSW and a release show in Jason's hometown of Chicago at Schubas on April 5. According to a press release, Jason's touring band includes Ben Trokan of Reigning Sound and Tim Remis. In the same press release, Britt Daniel said "I loved the idea of being in a band where all I do is play bass on someone else's stuff. I felt like a session musician," but maybe he'll make an appearance with them when they play his hometown during SXSW? Fingers crossed.
