British rocker Carl Barat will debut the new band he put together on social media at an intimate gig in England later this month (May14).

The musician reached out to fans on and in January (14) announcing he was looking for a drummer, a bassist and a second guitarist to form a new group.

He waded through more than 1,000 applications and last month (Apr14) he introduced fans to his new act, The Jackals.

Now he will show off his latest project's prowess at a small show in the The Bowery District venue in his native Reading on 13 May (14), before a bigger London show at the Xoyo club on 15 May (14).

It comes just days after Barat announced he would reunite with Pete Doherty for a Libertines reunion show at Hyde Park, London in July (14), marking 10 years since the cult rockers split.
