Damon Albarn, Flea and Tony Allen, drummer for Fela Kuti, have been working for a few years on an album together and have now released the name of their new band and self-titled album, Rocketjuice and the Moon.
The album has been described as mostly instrumental and should be released in 2012. The trio will be making their live debut tomorrow in London. The band was given the name by the person who did the sleeve design.
Albarn has worked with Allen before in another one of his side projects, The Good, The Bad & The Queen, who will also be performing their first live performance in three years in November.
