Libertines' Carl Barât has new album with The Jackals

Carl Barât & The Jackals have premiered "A Storm Is Coming," a new single taken from the band’s debut album Let It Reign, which is due Febr. 17. They arrive in America following the release.

"I actually started making this record solo, but the long and short of it is I just didn’t like my own company," says Carl.

He added  that he soon realized that he wanted to get a new band together.

Rather than call up some old mates to recruit for The Jackals, Carl decided to post a few ads online asking if there were any like-minded souls out there who wanted to try their luck at playing with him. The response was overwhelming, with thousands of people replying. Carl adds "I was lucky, because I found a bunch of people who genuinely fit together as a gang."

Carl Barât & The Jackals are:
Carl Barât – Vocals/Guitar
Billy Tessio – Guitar
Adam Claxton – Bass Guitar
Jay Bone – Drums
