King Crimson Confirms New Three-Drummer Lineup

The eighth incarnation of King Crimson will include three drummers—Pat Mastelotto, Gavin Harrison, and Bill Rieflin—in addition to bassist Tony Levin, horn player Mel Collins, vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Jakko Jakszyk, and guitarist Robert Fripp.

While no official tour dates have been announced, bandleader Fripp wrote in a recent online diary entry, “Dear brother crims, we have one year to prepare for action.” Show dates for the triple-drummer Crimson lineup are expected to take place in the fall of 2014.
