TYPE O NEGATIVE drummer Johnny Kelly has posted the following update on the band's activities via the group's official web site:[We are] STILL doing demos. We have a few more songs to demo. We did send Roadrunner [Records] the songs that were completed. From what I understand, they liked them. The release date that some of you have heard about from the Roadrunner site [October 29th] may be the truth, for all I know. Realistically speaking, that's only six months away. I, like the rest of you, would very much like to have the CD released before then, but I would be lying if I gave a date at this time. About the cover of [DEEP PURPLE's] 'Highway Star' [we recorded] for [the] NASCAR [-sponsored Crank It Up compilation], yes we did do a version of it for a compilation they are going to be releasing [through MCA Records on May 21st]. As it stands now, our song will be on the CD. I have hesitated making posting any kind of statement about this because of the fiasco that was the track for the WWF CD that were supposed to be on. So far, the feedback about the track has been very positive so I think the song will definitely be on it unless NASCAR pulls the plug on the entire project. Stranger things have happened.
