Harvey Danger Whittles Through Material For Sophomore Album

After scoring one of the most memorable singles of last year with "Flagpole Sitta," Harvey Danger is now holed up at Bearsville Studios in Woodstock, New York, recording the follow-up to their '97 debut disc, "Where Have All the Merrymakers Gone?"

The group did take a little time out recently to update the English Beat's 1982 ditty, "Save It for Later," for the "200 Cigarettes" soundtrack, but Harvey Danger has since returned to their sophomore effort with producer John Goodmanson -- who also manned the boards for Danger's last album.

Frontman Sean Nelson recently spoke with the MTV Radio Network, and provided a progress report on the studio sessions. "For the first time in our history as a band, we're dealing with a surplus of songs," Nelson said with a hint of surprise, "it's just out of control that we would have almost 20 [unreleased] songs at once."

Harvey Danger is still working on a title for the record, which the band hopes to have ready in time for a summer

release.
