Alien Ant Farm Plan New Album and Will Tribute Michael Jackson
The original line-up--Dryden Mitchell (lead vocals), Mike Cosgrove (drums), Terry Corso (guitar), Tye Zamora (bass)--will start to work on their fourth album in November and is looking to release it Spring 2012.
"We are pretty excited for the year to come," declares guitarist Terry Corso. "We just came off of a three-month tour in the U.S. that made us realize that with the original line-up back together, we have fire and hunger again. That being said, we can hardly wait to hit the studio and start putting a new record together. We've been writing on and off for the past year and have a really good pile of new material. Basically the goal is to write another pile. With a fresh new collection, we hope to get our core fans excited, as well as turn some brand new listeners on to the Alien Ant Farm sound and show the world we have a lot more to offer than the average rock band."
This week they're traveling to the U.K. to participate in the "Michael Forever Tribute" on October 8 along with Black Eyed Peas, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aquilera, Ne-Yo, Smokey Robinson and others. The band will be performing two Michael Jackson songs, including their smash hit #1 single, a remake of "Smooth Criminal."
