On September 8, Nikki Blakk of the San Francisco, California radio station 107.7 The Bone conducted an interview with UGLY KID JOE/ANOTHER ANIMAL singer Whitfield Crane. The entire 24-minute podcast, which includes the world premiere of the brand new UGLY KID JOE song "Love Ain't True", can be streamed using the audio player below. (Note: "Love Ain't True" begins around the 18-minute, 45-second mark.)
In a recent interview with the NY Rock Music Examiner, drummer Shannon Larkin (GODSMACK, UGLY KID JOE, ANOTHER ANIMAL) was asked about the rumors that UGLY KID JOE had reunited and was recording new material. "The rumors are true!" Larkin said. "Whit, Klaus [Eichstadt, guitar], Cordell [Crockett, bass], Dave [Fortman, guitar] and myself got together this year and made six new songs for an EP to put out at some point. We are really stoked at how it came out pure UGLY KID JOE, dude! We have no label, agent, or management and did the record by ourselves without a real plan other than getting together in a room again after all these years and jamming out! We'll keep people posted as to when we will release something and perhaps even play some shows if there is interest in us."
UGLY KID JOE released three full-length albums and toured extensively throughout the 1990s before disbanding in 1997.
Although ANOTHER ANIMAL's 2007 debut album failed to interest the public, the group, which also features GODSMACK members Tony Rombola on guitar and Robbie Merrill on bass along with original GODSMACK guitarist Lee Richards, will release a new song called "Fall Of Rome" this fall. Larkin told the Naples News that if the single takes off, a new album could be in the works.
