In a somewhat clipped press statement issued today Will Sergeant announced that he has a new instrumental band;
Sergeant one of the founding members of Echo & The Bunnymen has now formed Poltergeist; whatâs more he has drafted into the line-up other original Bunnymen member Les Pattinson on customary bass duties, the line-up being completed with the addition of current Bunnymen member Nick Kilroe on drums
Poltergeist have announced three UK shows in Glasgow, London & and a hometown gig in Liverpool during March 2013. Tickets are on sale now.
Wednesday March 13th â Oran Mor, Glasgow Ticket Info
Thursday March 14th â Hoxton Bar & Grill, London
Saturday March 16th â The Kazimier, Liverpool Ticket Info
The only other information and clue to the Poltergeist sound can be found on a short video leaked onto YouTube;
A short audio clip has been made available via Soundcloud – the untitled track wasÂ recorded in Liverpool this summer, and is thought to form the basis of a EP for release in 2013.
Clearly Sergeant remains part of Echo & The Bunnymen, the Poltergeist website is hosted via the Bunnymen homepage, and the Bunnymen have recently announced a UK tour in May 2013 when they support James.
