Bloc Party Russell's new album
Bloc Party guitarist Russell Lissack and his side project Pin Me Down are set to release their debut album in April.
The eponymously titled debut album, featuring the collaboration between Russell and ex-Black Moustache singer Milena Mepris, will be available from April 19, and will include singles Time Crisis and Treasure Hunter.
"I've always had melodies in my head that I need to kind of get out - it's another outlet for me to do that because I'm not the kind of person that can sit around for several months not doing anything," he told Spinner.
"We've just got tons and tons of songs that we [were] never gonna quite finish. Now, having a break from Bloc Party gave us the opportunity to try and finish the things we're working on."
The band will be touring in the summer with shows and festival dates.
