On the rebound: When bands replace their lead singer

After the band’s breakup and brief runs of solo careers, the two vocalists now work as a duo and are on their third album Crooked Calypso which will be released on July 21.

The material has already seen the light of day at prominent stages like Glastonbury and will form a significant feature of the show as they perform at Liverpool’s Echo Arena as part of their UK and Ireland tour.

Judging from their previous outing in Liverpool at the Philharmonic Hall, it should be a gig worth catching.
