First up is a brand new solo album by guitarist/vocalist Mike Gent. The album, which is Mike's 3rd solo dis, is simply entitled Mike Gent, and comes out on February 17th. You can pre-order it here.

And speaking of new albums, the band apparently has material for three new albums ready to go. According to their website, they'll be releasing an album sometime this summer, followed by a double album sometime in 2010.
Oh, and they also have a massive (for them) tour scheduled over the next month, starting Thursday night in Chicago. With no DC or NYC shows scheduled, I may have to try to get to Philly.
