HENRY ROLLINS: New Band To Launch This Summer

Punk rock icon Henry Rollins has told Lawrence.com that he is currently in the process of putting together a new band, with tentative plans to launch it later in the year. "I have another project planned for this summer, and all the people are in place and everyone's on board," he said. "I've just got to corral everyone together and throw 'em in a practice room and say, 'Okay, incubate.'" Asked if he could elaborate, Rollins said, "Nope. It's one of those things where we're gonna go into a room and play. They've all played with me, but they've never played with each other. I'm the nexus. On paper it looks like it could be really cool, but you never know 'till you get there. So we'll book a week of practice, and we'll just go in there and make all kinds of horrible noise. And if it's horrible in a good way, we'll pursue. If it's just 'ugh,' we'll laugh and say we gave it a shot and we had fun, and everyone will go their separate ways."
