The members of Midlake (Eric Pulido, McKenzie Smith, Joey McClellan, and Jesse Chandler) have a new supergroup named BNQT that features vocals by Pulido, but also notable singers from four other bands: Band of Horses’ Ben Bridwell, Franz Ferdinand‘s Alex Kapranos, Grandaddy‘s Jason Lytle, and Travis’ Fran Healy. BNQT’s debut album, Volume 1, is due out April 28 via Dualtone/Entertainment One/Bella Union. Now they have shared another song from it, “Unlikely Force,” which features the vocals of Bridwell. Listen below.

BNQT is still supposed to be pronounced as “Banquet” and Volume 1 was recorded and produced mainly in Midlake’s studio in Denton, TX. The album features 10 songs and each of the vocalists wrote and sang two songs each. Pulido joked in a previous press release that BNQT is “like a poor man’s version of The Traveling Wilburys!” He also added: “That’s what art is about for me, creating with other people that you love and appreciate.”
