New Lemonheads due in 2008
Evan Dando has been called a lot of things in his musical career – “Sexiest Man Alive” unincidentally among them – but “prolific” is going to take some getting used to. After reforming the Lemonheads last year (in name only – though when wasn’t it?) and releasing his first record since 2003’s aptly titled Baby I’m Bored, Dando has announced that another Lemonheads album is on the way in April 2008. Reports Billboard:
“Yeah, there is new music, and I’ll be recording in January,” Dando says. “But I don’t want to talk about the record too much.”
And if that wasn’t enough Dando for your troubles, there is a reissue of Lemonheads high-water mark It’s a Shame about Ray coming down the pipeline:
Also in the mix is a deluxe edition of the band’s 1992 album “It’s a Shame About Ray,” which will include demos, B-sides and a DVD from the era. The project is due in March via Rhino.
Now if we could only get those pesky Smashing Pumpkins to crank out some tunes… oh, wait.
