BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION guitarist Tracii Guns (ex-L.A. GUNS) has posted the following message on his official blog:
"Ginger [THE WILDHEARTS] was involved in a couple of the songs we wrote for the [upcoming second] album but he is not in the band. I am not at liberty to discuss his personal life. I am sure eventually he will make a post somewhere as to why he is unable to continue with the BRIDES. He still is living with us and is our brother."
Meanwhile, Ginger has sent out the following update to THE WILDHEARTS' mailing list:
"The BRIDES thing didn't work out, so I'm staying on here in Malibu [California] and I'm going to relax (for the first time in my life) and wait for something to turn up. Been writing a ton of stuff, and I'm going to be writing with Ricky Warwick [ex-THE ALMIGHTY] next week. He also has a solo acoustic spot at a place called The Joint, and I'm going to be getting up onstage with him next Wednesday to play a few cover songs. It's on Pico and Robertson, if anyone is interested. Maybe I'll see some friendly list people at the bar? Other than that I'm mending well, and have some really good friends around me, and that's as important as anything in the world at the moment."
BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION will enter the studio on Monday (March 7) to officially begin recording their new album, entitled "13 Acres". The follow-up to last year's "Here Come the Brides" will be recorded at a ranch in Malibu with producer Andy Johns, who has previously worked with Guns on the L.A. GUNS' "Waking the Dead" album (which Guns has referred to as "my favorite L.A. GUNS record."). A June release via Sanctuary Records is expected.
