Sonic Youth - Thurston Moore Joins Twilight
Former Sonic Youth star Thurston Moore has joined metal supergroup Twilight.
The singer/guitarist was revealed as the band's latest member in an interview with frontman Blake Judd on Monday (30Jul12).
As well as Moore and Judd, the band also features producer Sanford Parker and Stavros Giannopoulos from the Atlas Moth.
Judd says, "He (Moore) was really interested in doing it and he's a big black metal fan. Sanford knows him because his old studio was run with a guy named Jeremy Lemos who was Sonic Youth's sound man for a long time, so that's our connection to them.
"Sanford had spoken to him when we were doing the last album about maybe getting involved. Timing wasn't right then, but he said he was super interested in doing something down the line."
