From the latest Relapse newsletter:

Birds Of Prey recently entered Sniper Studio in Moyock, NC to record their second full-length album, Sulfur and Semen.

Birds Of Prey teamed up with producer Vince Burke to track a number of new songs and one IRON AND WINE cover. Advance song titles include: “Satisfy the 45”, “Lice Halo”, “Where Black Lungs Don’t Breathe”, and “Turning Big Rocks Into Little Rocks”.

Sulfur and Semen follows up the band’s debut album, Weight of the Wound, and is expected to see a late 2007 / early 2008 release date via Relapse Records.

Alabama Thunderpussy Tour With W.A.S.P. Cancelled!

It appears that Blackie Lawless has cancelled on Alabama Thunderpussy for the second and last time. I was really hopeful that this time the tour would work, but it appears according to a news item on Alabama Thunderpussy's page that Blackie cancelled the tour. I've heard rumors that he can be difficult to work with. I'm guessing that why he's they sole original member left in W.A.S.P. Good news is that the guys in ATP are working on fill-in dates. And don't worry for those fans in the Richmond area, the show on 9/02/07 is still on since it's a local show with Lamb Of God as the headliners.
