Nick McCabe and Simon Jones launch The Black Ships this summer


The Verve guitarist Nick McCabe and bassist Simon Jones are to make their live debut as The Black Ships in London this June. The band will play London's King's College Students Union on June 2.

The Black Ships, who formed in 2009, also count drummer Mig Schillace and violinist Davide Rossi in their line up. Rossi, though never formally in The Verve, played on their 2008 album Forth and featured in the band's live line up frequently after that.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 15, at 9am (GMT). To check the availability of The Black Ships tickets, go to NME Tickets, or call 0871 230 1094 (UK). Also try the the Gigs and Tours website.
