Former Another Animal bandmates Lee RICHARDS (Dropbox) and Whitfield CRANE (Ugly Kid Joe), have reunited for a new project under the name RICHARDS/CRANE. In 2015 they are set to release their debut album, a collection of heartfelt, stripped down songs. Guest vocals on the album include classical Indian artist Vishal Vaid and a stunning performance by Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge/Slash) who duets with Whitfield Crane on first single ‘Black & White’.


The ‘Black & White’ video was filmed on the streets of London and backstage at the Download festival in June 2014, by Director Dan Sturgis. The video features cameos from the likes of Steel Panther, Benji Webbe (Skindred), Phil Anselmo, Dee Snider, Chris Jericho and Myles Kennedy to name but a few…



Their forthcoming album is available to preorder exclusively through Pledgemusic (,  on a joint campaign alongside Whitfield Cranes other band, Ugly Kid Joe, who are set to make their first full length album in 19 years entitled “Uglier Than They Used Ta Be”!
