Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba has revealed that he has formed a new side project with members of My Chemical Romance and AFI.

The band, which is to be known as Matt Skiba And The Sekrets, will feature AFI's Hunter Burgan [pictured far right] on bass and Jarrod Alexander, who joined My Chemical Romance as their touring drummer in September after they sacked Michael Pedicone, will play drums.

Skiba said of the project: "Creating a record on my own and deciding who plays and how the songs were structured, it was fun to do. I love working with my band-mates in Alkaline Trio, but to make a rock record that was just mine was something that I wanted to do."

Matt Skiba And The Sekrets will release their debut album, which is to be titled 'Babylon', later this year.

Alkaline Trio will tour the UK in May, playing dates that they were forced to postpone the dates from their original booking in November 2011 after Skiba broke his foot during a motorcycle accident.
