Warrel Dane Has 'Secret Plans' For Nevermore

Warrel Dane says that Nevermore is not dead following the 2011 departure of guitar player Jeff Loomis and drummer Van Williams. Now Dane says in an interview that he has 'secret plans' for the band.

Dane discussed the band's future in a new documentary from Iza Rodrigues of Menina Headbanger (via Blabbermouth). He said, "No, Nevermore is not dead. I have secret plans. I had all the lyrics written for a new Nevermore record right after… When Jeff and Van [Williams, drums] both decided to leave the band… The band didn't break up. They left the band.

"I had all the lyrics written for the next [album] - all of them. [It was] kind of a conceptual thing and continuing with the tradition of all the Nevermore lyrics that were evolving and turning into a perpetual story.

"And there's a possibility that, yeah, there will be another [album]. There's support there from the record company, probably. There's support from other people involved in the business that would mean maybe it would be a good idea to do another one.

"So don't be surprised if there is a new Nevermore record within the next two years. But I don't know who will be in the band. All I can say is that I will be, Jim Sheppard [bass] will definitely be… I would love for Jeff Loomis to do it, but he's in Arch Enemy now, so I don't know if that's possible. Because we're not enemies. We don't talk much, but we're definitely not enemies. We didn't part on bad terms, so… We'll see."
