"I am totally psyched to be working with eOne for the new BRONX CASKET release!" says Verni. "They did an amazing job with the OVERKILL record and I know they will do the same for this. Having a label home where people 'get' it and are psyched to work a record is a great feeling."

THE BRONX CASKET CO. was formed in 1998 by Verni, who — after having played in one of the most respected thrash bands ever for over two decades — was looking for "the challenge of writing interesting new material, and for fun, of course!" The band's second release caught the ear of playwright Andrea Lepcio. Soon after, Verni and Lepcio were collaborating with three-time Tony winner Hinton Battle to direct and choreograph. The seeds of "The Bronx Casket Co., A New Musical" were planted. Verni quickly recruited several members from the TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA to perform. The cast consisted of performers from the Broadway shows "Hairspray", "Rent" and "Dance Of The Vampire". There have been several performances off-Broadway for producers/backers and the show is still in the writing stages. It has a gothic/Broadway score with a twisted love story woven throughout. Songs from the first two BRONX CASKET CO. releases are included in the show, as well as 13 new songs Verni penned just for the musical.

It's been five years since THE BRONX CASKET CO. last released an album and has been well worth the wait. Verni states, "This BRONX CASKET record is the best we have done, and we are looking forward to getting out on the road and doing some shows."

THE BRONX CASKET CO.'s follow-up to 2005's "Hellectric" will be the band's first release with D.D. handling all of the vocal duties.
