Mark Gorman from the VIRGIN STEELE Home Office has posted the following update on the band's official web site:"VIRGIN STEELE are back in the studio completing the final recordings and mixes on [vocalist] David DeFeis' 'Barbaric-Romantic Movie Of The Mind' ..... the 'Lilith' soundtrack. All is going quite well, and apparently there is enough music recorded for at least two CD's. No word yet as to if this work will be released as a single, or a double CD set. In addition to the recordings for 'Lilith', the group is also working on another collection of songs based on ... 'the end of the world'. In still yet another project, David & [guitarist] Edward [Pursino] are working on an album of acoustic songs. I attended one of their 'acoustic' rehearsals ... it was one of the loudest performances I've heard in quite some time! Meanwhile the 'Lilith Opera' starts up again for another round of performances on NEW YEAR'S EVE. All dates to be posted shortly. As regards the video/DVD project it is still in the works for the coming year, along with a live album. What will be released first ... I have no idea!!! But stay tuned ... I will find out! Contrary to any rumours the band is still all in one piece, with the same lineup. David DeFeis, Edward Pursino, Frank Gilchriest and Josh Block are preparing for the up coming GREEK Concerts as well as several other dates. Apparently David DeFeis, is not the only workaholic in the group. Drummer extraordinaire Frank Gilchriest, has also been quite busy lately. He's been helping various friends out by doing session work on recordings with RIOT, GOTHIC KNIGHTS & HOLY MOTHER among others. And in addition both David and Frank took time out recently to play a rare 'one off' surprise blues/'cover' gig together. This gig also featured Pete from RIOT on bass, and Tommy from HOLY MOTHER on guitar. That's all for now. See you again soon."
