Image Chicago, IL drummer extraordinaire Neil Hennessy (The Lawrence Arms/The Falcon/Smoking Popes) has unveiled a new project dubbed Council Trail. Hennessy explained:

"This one will be very different from all of the bands I've spent time with thus far. Mainly because I'm writing all of the material myself and will be singing and playing guitar! There are 15 songs written between '02-'09 already recorded that will be released in a variety of ways this coming year and I've written the majority of the first full length that will be recorded by the fall. I've played most everything on the first round of recordings, but that will change as a band gets created. I'm hoping to have a couple of songs up on this page within the month, and then a proper release sometime in the early spring!"

A MySpace page for the band is located here, though there's no music posted there as of yet.
