SLIPKNOT bassist Paul Gray has teamed up with AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE vocalist Martin Cock and guitarist/bassist/programmer Chad Hanks in a new band tentatively dubbed F.O.R.The group, who will make their live debut at the 93X Nutcrackers Ball at Roy Wilkins Auditorium in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Dec. 20 (alongside DISTURBED, STONE SOUR and STEREOMUD), recently demoed some original material with a view towards getting it issued through an as-yet-undetermined label in early 2003. In related news, AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE are continuing work on their sophomore effort for a tentative early 2003 release through American Recordings. "[There is] no name for the record yet, but we have whittled down the number of songs from 26/27 to about 16/20, depending if we're going to re-record a few songs we couldn't fit on 'The War of Art'," Hanks wrote on the band's official web site. "We're going make a shorter record this time, that's for sure...peoples attention spans tend to be that of goldfish (they reset about every 11 seconds...ever notice nothing on MTV stays on the screen for more that about 3 seconds, tops????), and I loathe the fact that someone 'just can't sit down and concentrate' on an hour of music...not that we're going to give you the ROB ZOMBIE bullshit of a 35-minute record, but we're thinking 10-12 songs." "Almost all of the demos have been finished, and we're (patiently, sort of) waiting for Martin to finish his vocals so they can be sent to The Land of The Record Company...hopefully, they will be deemed 'rockin'', and we'll be moving our tardy asses to L.A. within the first two weeks of January [to record]."
