Last week we received the sad news that Dan Boeckner’s band with his wife Alexei Perry had called it quits, seemingly leaving Boeckner at a loose end, but apparently this is not the case at all; it appears he was just getting the one project out of the way so that he could focus on his next: Divine Fits.

Divine Fits brings together Boeckner with Spoon’s front man Britt Daniel (who was seen joining Handsome Furs on stage in LA last year – perhaps then we should have suspected something) and Sam Brown of New Bomb Turks. There isn’t much information about Divine Fits yet, but we’re informed that they will be releasing their debut record, which was produced by Nick Launay, through Merge later in 2012.

Divine Fits have a website at, but there isn’t much on it yet except a place to sign up for their mailing list and the above picture. You can also follow the band here on Twitter.
