    Ben Bridwell of Band of Horses, Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand, Fran Healy of Travis, Jason Lytle of Grandaddy, and Eric Pulido have announced their debut album as BNQT. Pronounced "Banquet," BNQT is releasing their debut record Volume 1 on April 28th.

    Bridwell, Kapranos, Healy, Lytle and Pulido each wrote two songs in contribution to the project, while backing came from other Midlake members McKenzie Smith, Joey McClellan, and Jesse Chandler.

    BNQT was first announced at the end of 2015, but due to the artists' busy schedules, it took over a year to put the record together. Recordings for Volume 1 were achieved by the band traveling to Denton, Texas, or submitting their contributions remotely over the net.

    The concept of BNQT came to Pulido while touring for Midlake's 2013 release, Antiphon. Gathering a number of artists he'd befriended or shared the stage with, Pulido set out to establish a new project untethered from other work. He said the band was, "Like a poor man's version of the Traveling Wilburys! That's what art is about for me, creating with other people that you love and appreciate." And it looks like that's exactly what he's been able to do here, putting together a project that fans of any of the involved members are sure to get excited about.

    Volume 1 Tracklist:

    1. Restart
    2. Unlikely Force
    3. 100 Million Miles
    4. Mind Of A Man
    5. Hey Banana
    6. Real Love
    7. Failing at Feeling
    8. L.A. On My Mind
    9. Tara
    10. Fighting The World
