ART BRUT Announce Line Up Change On Eve Of UK Tour

Long service medals and great appreciation are due to Mikey Breyer (drums) and Jasper Future (guitar) who have retired from Art Brut.

While one door closes another door opens and the band are delighted to welcome former Graham Coxon and Charlotte Hatherley sidemen Toby Macfarlaine (guitar) and Stephen Gilchrist (drums) and the new line up is pictured.

Eddie Argos commented: ‘Being a classic rock band isn’t all just laps of honour round the World, and photo shoots in Rolling Stone, it also involves personnel changes. So after 10 years and 8 years of playing with them respectively we say goodbye to Mike and Jasper.

Press releases are not the best place for fond farewells but it’s been a blast and we’ll miss them……

It’s now time for Art Brut Mk III. Hello to Toby and Stephen. Lets start ROCKING THE FUCK OUT.

See you in September!’

Art Brut’s UK tour starts in Manchester at the Academy 3 next Tuesday on September 24th visting 13 further venues before coming to an end on November 7th at Esquires in Bedford.
