Fan-filmed video footage of ANOTHER ANIMAL performing the song "Broken Again" at the Irving Plaza in New York City on October 16, 2007 can be viewed below. ANOTHER ANIMAL also includes original GODSMACK guitarist Lee Richards and former UGLY KID JOE frontman Whitfield Crane. Larkin told The Pulse of Radio that he personally wanted to bring Crane into the band to repay him for giving Larkin a job with UGLY KID JOE during the peak of that band's success. "He took me out of one of the darkest places in my life, when I was ready to just quit the music business," he said. "Well, Whit was in his own dark place, so I got to call him and say, 'Dude, guess what? I have this side project, so I'm offering you a chance now to be back on a major label and get your voice on the radio again. I was able to return a favor that was life-changing for me." ANOTHER ANIMAL's self-titled debut disc sold 3,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release. ANOTHER ANIMAL recently completed a U.S. tour with labelmates ALTER BRIDGE.
