New blood, new feel, same band
Saliva were in town yesterday on their way to Edinburg for a show at The Palace Theater but before that they stopped in studio to hang with Lars. Original member Wayne and new-to-the-band Bobby talked about how new blood has given the band some new life. Just before rockin’ an acoustic version of the classic Saliva tune “Always,” Wayne said that it’s the same band but a new band meaning they still have the classic songs to pull from but they have a new take with Bobby on vocals. He also said that it feels likes a real rock band when they’re out on the road. Bobby, who joined the band not long ago, says a mutual friend put him in touch with the band and things just clicked. Original vocalist Josey Scott broke away from the band a while back to work on some solo music. Both Wayne and Bobby say they’re stoked for their new album In It to Win It to drop sometime this summer. Watch video of the band in studio online:
Scantlin buzz saw massacre
Everyone hits their bottom sometime. Is this Wes Scantlin’s bottom? The Puddle of Mudd singer was arrested again. This time, it wasn’t for a bench warrant, or for freaking out on an airplane. Nope! He was busted for vandalizing a neighbor’s LA property. The singer is accused of using a sledge hammer and a buzz saw to beat up his neighbors property after claiming it was infringing on his property rights. Why isn’t there a reality TV show following Scantlin around?
Side project drop date revealed
