METALSUCKS interviewed Dale recently and he let a plethora of cats out of the bag! "We’ve been doing a ton of recording of various things, doing lots of covers. We’re going to be doing a lot of splits with people. We’re going to be doing some singles where we play with other people as well. We’ve recorded some Venom songs, with Scott Kelly from Neurosis singing and playing guitar. We’ve recorded a Roxy Music song with Jello Biafra with our old bass player Kevin [Rutmanis] playing. We just recorded some Queen songs with a friend of ours Caleb who’s in a band called Tweak Bird. We have a bunch of things planned along those lines."
Spin conducted a revelaing interview with Buzz in which he reiterates his non-involvement in the death of Kurt Cobain among other things. "I really, really don’t care what people do. If you want to smoke weed or destroy your life with other drugs or whatever you want to do, I’m fine with that. Good. I think you should OD. You should OD with a giant stockpile of drugs right in front of you."
