The Books' Nick Zammuto takes some time away from the library and steps out solo as Zammuto

Nick Zammuto, who we all know as one-half of The Books, has announced that he’s formed a new band called Zammuto. I think he named it after his father or something. The new band promises to satisfy fans of The Books as they wait, patiently, for the follow-up to last year’s The Way Out (TMT Review).

This New Musical Project, which is supplementary to The Books (don’t worry, they didn’t break-up, you’ll just have to wait another five years between albums), will be, as Zammuto describes it: “a three or four piece band, hopefully playing shows by the end of the year.” Nicky Boy also says that he’ll be posting new music by the band (on his website) as he and the band make it. However, he says you’ll only be able to download the songs for a couple days at a time, which is totally mean, and the first track, “Yay,” is already off the site, so unfortunately you’ll have to go to “the other guys” to get it.
