Columbus rock veteran Sam Brown joins members of Spoon and Wolf Parade as Divine Fits

Wowza. Sam Brown, the Columbus drummer who has manned the kit for many of this town's finest musical exports (New Bomb Turks, Gaunt, The Sun, RJD2, Anna Ranger) and fronted his own excellent project You're So Bossy is now involved in a supergroup with Spoon's Britt Daniel and Wolf Parade's Dan Boeckner. The band is called Divine Fits, and they have an album coming out this year on Merge Records. The band's inaugural tweet reads "Hi. We are Divine Fits from LA, CA. We've been making a racket while the pool drains into the yard. We want to share it with you soon." This might partially explain why we haven't been hearing murmurs about a new Spoon album and why Boeckner's other band Handsome Furs just broke up.

Can't wait to hear what these guys came up with. A Columbus show is pretty much a given, right?
