Enuff Z'nuff Reveal Details For New Rarities Album

Enuff Z'nuff

Enuff Z'nuff have revealed more details about their upcoming rarities album "Clowns Lounge" which is set to be released on December 2nd via Frontiers Music Srl.

The current lineup of the band featuring Chip Z'nuff, the only remaining original member, taking over lead vocal duties have also lineup tour dates with Tracii Guns and Ace Frehley and will also be taking part in The Kiss Kruise Creatures of the Deep in November.

Z'nuff revealed the following background details about the new rarities compilation album, "Donnie and I wrote the songs in the later part of 1988-89. They were recorded in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, on 2" inch analog tape, during the time of our debut. The tracks were never finished, as we were very prolific and focused on laying down as many ideas as possible.

"Through the resources provided to us: recording studio, production, etc., we had a plethora of songs during that era and for one reason or another this batch slipped through the cracks.

"To restore the record we returned to the studio to record guitar, bass vocals, etc. which took us about six weeks in my studio and at CRC (Chicago Recording Company) along with Stonecutter studio in downtown Chicago.

"The skeleton of the song was already in place and we wanted to make sure the record had the feel of where the band is today. We also added a bonus single track (Dog on a Bone) that we plan on releasing as the first single."

Chip also addressed the absence of frontman and chief songwriter Donnie Vie. "Donnie and I wrote the songs together, as we have on all the Enuff Z'nuff albums. In 2013 Donnie left the band, disillusioned by the business and facing related health issues, and although he will not tour with the band he still shares in our vision of putting out great music.

"As he is dealing with his medical condition, we have his blessings on the record and moving forward with me as lead singer. When Peter Gabriel left Genesis, Phil Collins took over lead vocal duties. That is exactly the template we used here as now I front the band and look forward to moving it into the future".
