DiS is pleased to announce that Derby noiseniks Komakino are alive, healthy and coming to a town near you in the next few months.
The band have been busy recording with ex-Mansun frontman Paul Draper and hope to release a single in the none-too-distant future.
They've also recruited a temporary bass player, Daniel Beddows, formerly of Norwich emo rockers Forever Falling, to replace the now-departed Dennis Caswell. Caswell is concentrating fully on his solo electronica project, Scapa Flow.
Frontman Ryan Needham (pictured) said:
"We managed to get through a really fucking shit year (where pretty much every reason that makes a band split up happened to us!) intact. We have plans for a single and want to play as many shows as possible for the summer and beyond and basically just massively getting back on it!"
