Arctic Monkeys, Babyshambles, Reverend supergroup cancel sho

Postby fidelity » Thu Sep 04, 2008 6:37 pm

Mongrel, the supergroup featuring members of Arctic Monkeys, Babyshambles and Reverend And The Makers, have cancelled all previously scheduled live dates.

The band had previously been set to play at the London Scala (November 5), the Sheffield Academy (9) and the Dublin Academy (11). In a statement the band said they plan to reschedule the shows soon.

Mongrel have, however, revealed that they will release their debut album, 'Better Than Heavy', on October 22.

In a statement band leader Jon 'The Reverend' McClure said that the gig cancellations were the result of scheduling conflicts between band members.

He added: "The thing that makes this project so amazing is also the thing that at this moment and time is preventing us from making these shows happen.

"The people involved in this project are some of my best friends, they are also in some of the busiest bands in this country. Including myself."

Mongrel is comprised of Arctic Monkeys' Matt Helders, his former bandmate Andy Nicholson, Babyshambles' Drew McConnell, Reverend And The Makers' Jon McClure and Joe Moskow and rapper Lowkey.
"That Kate Moss stuff in the papers was pretty funny," Alex explained. "She was meant to have rung me mum up and me mum said 'leave my son alone'!"
