Taylor Hawkins and His Coattail Riders Perform at SXSW

Drummer for the Foo Fighters, Taylor Hawkins, has unleashed his side project at the recent South By Southwest music festival. Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders is the name of the band, and it features Hawkins singing as well as drumming.

The Coattail Riders, made up of old Jane's Addiction bassist Chris Chaney and Gannin (a friend of Hawkins), join the Foo Fighters drummer in producing "rich, lush licks" and "powerful,...machine-gun fast" rhythms.

The group's debut album will be released Tuesday.
