The Horrors' frontman Faris Badwan has formed a new band called Cat's Eyes - and launched it with a live gig at the Vatican in Rome.

The singer has teamed up with classically trained musician Rachel Zeffira for the new project, telling NME that he sees the band "not as a side-project, but as something I can do at the same time as The Horrors yet be totally different with".

Scroll down and click below to watch footage from their first gig, which took place at St Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City in December. "We were actually in the Basilica, with all the cardinals in the middle of a mass," Badwan told NME.

He added: "The cardinals were totally into it."

Cat's Eyes' first release will be the 'Broken Glass EP', out on February 28. The release will include a reworked version of unreleased Horrors song 'Sunshine Girls'.

A self-titled album will follow on April 11 - head to Catseyesmusic.com for a free download of their song 'Not A Friend' from the record now.

The duo have also announced details of their first UK shows, to take place this March. They will play Manchester St Philip's on March 14, Glasgow St Andrew's on March 15 then the London Amadeus Centre on March 18.
