|Invitro Week: New Disease|
New Disease is the first song that we as a band ever recorded to be passed on to the public. It has been the opener to ninety percent of our live shows, and is also the opening song on our record. The song was initially named robotic bible after one of my favorite lyrics in the song, but was eventually changed to the more fitting, New Disease.

|Who Needs Tommy Lee?|
Metalunderground has this recap: "Howard asked Nikki about the chicks he's banged and if he names any of the really famous chicks he had. He wasn't going to get into those names so Howard asked him what's up with the band now. Tommy Lee has quit the band so he's out now.
Nikki said that they had this manager working
with the band and he started to demand more money to have Tommy in it with
them. The guy kept demanding more money and they ended up suing the guy
because of what he was doing. He said they lost 10s of millions of dollars
because Tommy was out doing solo stuff. He said that guy cost them a lot
of money so they had to sue him. Tommy pulled out of the band because of
that and the battle is still going on. He said you'd think that Tommy would
support the band but that's not the case. Nikki said that Tommy isn't the
singer or songwriter so they should be fine without him.
