The specifics of Keane co-founder Tim Rice-Oxley’s secret side project have been kept mostly under wraps, but according to a recent tweet from Long Winters frontman John Roderick, Rice-Oxley has assembled group of well-known musicians in the studio to record under the moniker Mt. Desolation.
The band’s website shows a series of pictures from the studio that include members of bands ranging from the aforementioned to Mumford & Sons (Country Winston) to Noah and the Whale (Tom Hobden). The group has been in a Notting Hill studio since at least Jan. 14, according to Roderick’s Twitter page. The pictures also show singer-songwriter Pete Roe and producer Emery Dobyns. There is no word on an official band roster or release date just yet.
