With flu season upon us, the timing couldn't be more perfect to brace yourself for some live Snot.
Mikey Doling, former guitarist for the SoCal punk quintet who now wields the axe for Soulfly, is putting the finishing touches on a live album, according to a Snot spokesperson. Snot Alive, captured during the group's show at the Palace in Hollywood in May 1998, is being mixed at a Malibu studio. Although a label deal has yet to be struck, the spokesperson hopes the album will arrive in stores come spring.
After the release of Snot's debut album, 1997's Get Some, frontman Lynn Strait was killed in a car accident on December 11, 1998 (see "Snot's Lynn Strait Dies In Car Crash"). A tribute album, Strait Up, composed primarily of unfinished material for their next album sung by guest vocalists, including Korn's Jonathan Davis, Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath and System of a Down's Serj Tankian, was released almost two years later.
Doling has about a week's worth of work left on the LP, which gives him a few days to rest before Soulfly hits the road with Static-X for a three-week jaunt that begins January 31 in San Francisco (see "Soulfly Break From Studio For Tour With Static-X"). The tour should give Doling a much-needed respite from the studio, as Soulfly have been clocking in recording time for their new album, the follow-up to 2000's Primitive, which they hope to have out in the spring.
