Thurston Moore’s new band Chelsea Light Moving

Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore has unveiled his brand new band, Chelsea Light Moving.

As well as Moore, the band also features Keith Moore on guitar, Samara Lubelski on bass and John Moloney on drums. The band’s first release, ‘Burroughs’, is inspired by the last words of Beat author William Burroughs, reports Spin.

The band are set to air another track next week.

Yesterday it was revealed that Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore are set to release a mini-album in collaboration with Yoko Ono, entitled ‘YOKOKIMTHURSTON’. The six track album will be released on September 24 and will feature the 14 minute long single, ‘Early In The Morning’.

In October last year Gordon and Moore announced their split. The rock couple released a statement through their label Matador Records revealing that they were separating after 27 years of marriage.

The announcement raised doubts over the future of Sonic Youth after Matador revealed that plans for the band remained “uncertain”, even though they had previously hinted they would record new material in 2011.
