Klaxons recruit former Dirty Pretty Things guitarist Anthony Rossomando

'He's officially a live member,' says Jamie Reynolds

Klaxons have confirmed that former Dirty Pretty Things guitarist Anthony Rossomando has joined the band as an “official” live member.

Although Rossomando has not recorded any music with the band, he will be playing live on their forthcoming tour dates. Recent gigs have seen him play keyboards and Q Chord, standing towards the back of the stage next to drummer Steffan Halperin and behind James Righton.

Speaking of the reason why the band brought Rossomando in, singer and bassist Jamie Reynolds told NME: “We needed someone extra and he seemed like a great all-round musician, a great guy to have with us.”
