MEAT PUPPETS Reunion To Feature PRIMUS Drummer

Greg Prato of Billboard.com is reporting that for the first time in more than a decade, Curt and Cris Kirkwood will work together on a new album by influential rock act MEAT PUPPETS. The sibling duo will soon begin rehearsing new material as a precursor to hitting the studio.

"I've got the album written already. I'm going to record it on my own and then see who wants to put it out," Curt Kirkwood told Billboard.com. "It's epic. It's big MEAT PUPPETS stuff. I would say 'sonic pyramids made out of garbage.' I honestly think these are good songs. I played some of them for [Cris] over the phone yesterday. I don't think this is going to be some sort of 'toss off' album." Song titles include "Enemy Love Song", "I'm Not You" and "New Leaf".

Cris Kirkwood's tumultuous last 10 years have been well documented. A deadly heroin addiction led to the bassist getting into a violent altercation with a security guard, getting shot and subsequently serving 18 months in prison. The PUPPETS released one album without him, 2000's "Golden Lies", before folding.

Although he was asked to participate, original MEAT PUPPETS drummer Derrick Bostrom will not be involved in the reunion. PRIMUS drummer Tim Alexander will replace him behind the kit.
