Carl Barât may be currently reliving his Libertine days, as he and Pete play three sold out shows in London this week but he has also been busy in his down time.
Instead of calling on the people he already knows when it came time to form a new band, he took a different approach, sending adverts out onto the interwebs.
Billy Tessio (guitar), Adam Claxton (bass), Jay Bone (drums), and of course Caral Barât have formed Carl Barât & Jackals, giving us a fresh perspective on his music.
The band released their first single, Glory Days. The album which has yet to be named, will be released early in 2015.
Until then you can enjoy the single for free from the bands website.
