Idlewild front man goes at it alone

Published: 2006-03-21
Lead singer of Scottish rock band Idlewild has started work on a solo project.

Shortly after the band split with their record label Parlophone, Roddy Woomble has started working on some stuff of his own, with the help of producer John McCusker.

Woomble told NME that his solo album has allowed him to go in a different direction. "I'm very much a part of that band it's as much (Idlewild bandmates) Allan, Colin, Rod, and Gavin's band as it is mine, so this whole experience has been full of nerves and excitement, and pride. It might sell two hundred copies, but the fact that it's going to exist is enough for me."

Though Woomble is spreading his wings, he assures fans that it won't be the last people have heard of Idlewild. After the split with their record label rumors began to swirl that the band, who have been together since 1995, would split.

Idlewild's last album Warnings/Promises was released in 2005.
