The Verve's Nick McCabe and Simon Jones have launched a new band along with Goldfrapp violinist Davide Rossi.

The band, called The Black Ships, is completed by drummer Mig Schillace. They have put a track – 'Black Ships On Auto' – online at Myspace.com/theblackshipsofficial.

Writing on the site, the band said Rossi first met McCabe and Jones during sessions for The Verve's 2008 comeback album 'Forth'.

"After The Verve finished touring in August 2008, it was decided that something new should emerge from such a meeting. That took shape in November 2008 in Copenhagen, Denmark, where the band met for the first time to play and record new material straight away.

"It was then that Nick brought with him long time friend and collaborator Mig Schillace, to complete the rhythmic section and with it the core line-up of the band.

"Since then the boys have been and are still working on it! It's a slow process, which needs the care and time that it needs, but music fans out there should expect some teasers real soon!"

The band are yet to announce their recording and live plans.
