Little Red singer Tom Hartney has quit the band he founded.
Hartney has formed a new group Major Tom & The Atoms.
In a statement Tom said, ”After six years of extraordinary adventures with my high-school buddies Little Red, I have decided to move on to focus exclusively on my new band Major Tom & The Atoms. Although more recently with Little Red I have mostly found myself behind the keyboards, my true passion has always been singing! Over the years many drunken punters have praised my baritone crooning abilities and now we will find out just how drunk they were…”
“I am very excited to be taking this first step into the great unknown, and could not be better equipped for the voyage than to have the passionate and creative individuals of Major Tom & The Atoms on board”.
Major Tom & The Atoms have just finished their debut EP ‘Shake It Till You Break It”. It will be released on June 1.
