The drummer and vocalist have left to start a new group: MF Robots
Two members of the Brand New Heavies have confirmed they’ve split off to form a new group. Drummer Jan Kincaid and vocalist Dawn Joseph have left the band and created ‘MF Robots’ (Music For Robots) – they say the new project is “moulding classic soul and funk sounds with a modern aesthetic that will stand the test of time”.
So far, they have released two singles, with a third, ‘Believe in Love’ out this Friday 21 July. A full album will be launched in the new year, with a live gig at Oslo Bar in London's Hackney on Thursday 21 September 2017 (tickets HERE).
Meanwhile guitarist Simon Bartholomew and bassist Andrew Levy will continue to perform under the name Brand New Heavies.
