With Velvet Revolver seemingly still on hiatus, guitarist Dave Kushner has assembled a new project that resembles a set-up akin to Gorillaz – an "animated" rock band called PusherJones, featuring The Simpsons' creative director Dave Warren, singer Frankie Perez (Camp Freddy and Scars On Broadway), bassist Scott Shriner (Weezer) and drummer Joey Castillo (Queens of the Stone Age).
Apparently, they didn't get the memo about holograms being the next great thing. At least holograms can tour! This band, however, cannot. They are a cartoon. But they may be coming to a TV near you:
Unlike Gorillaz, PusherJones hope to become an honest-to-goodness cartoon. Kushner is currently shopping around a pilot episode in the hopes of landing an animated TV series about the trials and tribulations of a famous rock band.
You can hear the "band"'s first single, "Cound Me Out," and read more about them at RollingStone.com.
