who knows when the next album will come out. mtv had reported a may
realease date, as had alternative press, but geffen is saying in the fall.

i saw the banshees at the grand in august (a warm-up gig for reading and a
small european tour), and i can say that the 6 new songs they played were a
lot heavier and darker thank superstition or even peepshow. hyanea is a
good compariosn, but would i be stretching it by comparing it to juju? in
any case, jon klein's guitar shined through, even on the previously
released songs. he was whackin the strings, and every song sounded new and
refreshing. but, i don't know if the album had been recorded at thtat
point, and i fear that geffen or polydor or the producer might have
scrapped the heaviness and resorted to keys. this is just my paranoia. i
have no reason to justifiably supposse this.
