Even Skinny Puppy, the last great industrial band on the planet, is feeling the bite of the flailing global economy. As the group's surviving members, frontman Ogre (Kevin Ogilvie) and drummer/programmer cEVIN Key (Kevin Crompton) embark on their In Solvent See Tour, they do so empty-handed. In May, the group's label, the German-based SPV Records, filed for insolvency the European version of filing Chapter 11. As a result, the group's 13th studio album, ironically crafted as commentary on the current state of the U.S. economy, is left in limbo with no word as to when it will be released.
"It's a clusterfuck," Ogre huffs. "We worked on another album that was to be a throw-away, just to get us away from SPV, but we had a disagreement internally. So Mark [Walk] and I, who work on ohGr records, took it back. It turned out to be some of the best and most productive recording I've done in my whole life, so it's going to become an ohGr record."
