Damon Albarn is to debut his new band, The Good, The Bad and The Queen, at the BBC's Electric Proms festival in London on 26 October.

Billboard reports that the Blur and Gorillaz frontman is joined in the band by former Verve guitarist Simon Tong, former Clash bassist Paul Simonon and Fela Kuti drummer Tony Allen.

The band will release their as-yet-untitled, Danger Mouse-produced debut album next year.

During the band's set at the Electric Proms festival they will play the whole album.
