The original Veruca Salt — Nina Gordon, Louise Post, Steve Lack and Jim Shapiro — are back together, as I reported last December, and have recorded two new songs, “The Museum of Broken Relationships” and “It’s Holy,” with their original producer, Brad Wood.
“It’s been great working with VS again – literally 20 years after our first time in the studio,” Wood told me today. “The new songs are unabashed rockers and I think the fun they are having is evident in the mixes. Seriously good fun and cathartic, too.”
On his Facebook page Wood posted: “The return of VS… Start camping out at your favorite record store because this is happening on Record Store Day, April 19th. The Bitch is Back.”
The new songs will be on a three-song 10″ to be released by their original label, Minty Fresh, along with the group’s original hit, “Seether,” Pitchfork reports.
