Forbidden is in an amazing creative space and we can't wait for everyone to hear it! We began recording on March 1st. We must thank Jaap Wagemaker and everyone else at Nuclear Blast for making their enthusiasm known to us since we've committed to writing this record.

Here's your portion of celebrity gossip of the week. Celebrity "news" zine Thirty Mile Zone has reported that a warrant was issued for former Warrant singer Jani Lane. Oh, the irony.
The warrent was issued last week, after Jani Lane failed to show up to two court appearances connected to his 2009 DUI conviction. TMZ reports: "We're told Lane was scheduled to appear in court on February 23 to show the judge he's completed his alcohol classes and community service - but he never showed. The court date was rescheduled for February 24... but Lane missed that one too.
We spoke to Lane's lawyer, who says the singer has been in the hospital and won't be able to make it to court until next week. As for why he's in the hospital ... no word."
