Mathematically speaking, the formula used to form a supergroup seems like sound logic. Add one talented musician to another, and watch their success rate multiply. But if supergroup history tells us anything, it’s that arithmetic precision has little to do with creative collaborations. If it really worked that way, Slash’s Snakepit would have yielded better results.
Spoon’s Britt Daniel, Wolf Parade’s Dan Boeckner, and New Bomb Turks' Sam Brown have combined their talents to produce a much more favorable outcome. When the three become one they go by the name Divine Fits, and have just announced the debut of their first album, A Thing Called Divine Fits, on August 28. In the meantime, interested parties can stream the record's first single, “My Love is Real,” before its official July 31 release.
