Former Basement and 747s members start new band

The Lost Brothers set for debut album release

Former 747s and The Basement members have united for a new album under the name The Lost Brothers.

The Basement’s Mark McCausland and ex 747s lead singer Oisin Leech will release their debut ‘Trails Of The Lonely-Parts I and III’ on November 17.

The album was recorded in Portland, Oregon with Bright Eyes/M Ward producer Mike Coykendall and Decembrists collaborator Adam Selzer.


The new record will be launched with a show at Boogaloo Bar in Highgate, London on November 11, with rumours that The PoguesShane MacGowan may make an appearance.

Meanwhile Leech is set to be reunited with Arctic Monkeys’ frontman Alex Turner later this month.

Not only did the 747s support Turner’s band, but both groups collaborated on the ’Baby I’m Yours’ cover, which appeared on the b-side of Arctic Monkeys’Leave Before The Lights Come On’ single.

The Lost Brothers have now been invited by BBC 6Music DJ Steve Lamacq to appear on his BBC Electric Proms show which will be broadcast live in Liverpool on October 24 ahead of the The Last Shadow Puppets performance at the festival.
