Muse drummer Dominic Howard and The Killers' Mark Stroemer have formed a new supergroup with Louis XIV frontman Jason Hill.

Hill formed the band Vicky Cryer in 2009 and has been working on a debut album with his celebrity pals ever since.

A new album, titled The Synthetic Love of Emotional Engineering, will be released later this year (13). It also features Jamiroquai's Nick Fyffe, Dave Elitch from Mars Volta and New York Dolls icon David Johanssen.

Meanwhile, Louis Xiv will regroup after a four-year hiatus for a short European tour with The Killers.
