Albany, New York's THE CLAY PEOPLE has entered the studio to begin recording its eighth album.The band has changed its lineup since the release of its 2007 CD, "Waking The Dead". Mainstays in the group Daniel Neet (vocals) and Dan Dinsmore (drums) have reunited with guitarist Mike Guzzardi, who appeared on THE CLAY PEOPLE's 1998 self-titled album and 2002's "Headhunter Demos". Regarding the new music, Neet said, "Danny, Mike and I have been hard at work.... This album is going to take off right after the 'Headhunter Demos'. We are even working on songs that had gotten shelved around 2002." He added, "I know eight years is a long time to keep everyone waiting on the three of us to start working together again." THE CLAY PEOPLE's new LP is set to release sometime in 2011 through Overit Records.
