Mister Heavenly is a supergroup of sorts - its three members include Nick Thorburn of Islands, Honus Honus of Man Man and Joe Plummer of Modest Mouse. Not surprisingly given the stature of the members' other projects, Mr. Heavenly was recently picked up by Sub Pop. They are currently poised to make their very first mark on the scene outside the news pages with a ten-date tour opening for Passion Pit.

The three gentlemen (originally only Honus and Thorburn, later joined by Plummer) were first motivated to work together about a year ago by a shared love of doo-wop music and "doomed love songs." The resulting sound, which they termed "doom-wop," will be on display on their tour, which kicked off last night. The tour is unfortunately covering only the West Coast, and the rest of us will just have to wait to hear from these guys as no recorded material has surfaced yet. An album release is scheduled for sometime in 2011, stay tuned. -peter menniti
