Members of Snow Patrol, R.E.M. and Belle and Sebastian to Release Tired Pony Album
Back in January, we told you about Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody’s new side project, which sees the singer joining forces with R.E.M.’s Peter Buck and Belle and Sebastian drummer Richard Colburn. Lightbody, Buck and Colburn are now making music under the Tired Pony moniker.
And we now have more details about the trio’s “country-tinged” debut album, The Place We Ran From. The album, which will be released July 12, features She & Him’s Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, Zooey Deschanel, M. Ward, Buck’s R.E.M. bandmate Scott McCaughey, and Editors frontman Tom Smith. Sounds like a pretty super supergroup to us.
