Peter Buck of R.E.M and Richard Coburn, drummer for Belle & Sebastian will join Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol to form a new supergroup called 'Tired Pony'.
The Chasing Cars hitmaker is focusing his efforts on new projects during a Snow Patrol hiatus, and he's moved to Buck's adopted Oregon to work on a new country-themed album.
And it's not the busy frontman's only side project - he is also working on an electronic dance record, under the name Listen... Tanks!, with producer Jacknife Lee. Story via WENN
