METAL CHURCH singer Ronny Munroe and drummer Jeff Plate spoke with Metalasfuck.net on the recent 70000 Tons Of Metal about the possibilities of another studio album. The band had formally announced in 2009 that they were calling it quits but reunited last fall for the aforementioned cruise.
"We've got plans," Munroe reveals. "We're going to start working on a new record and maybe do some festivals this summer. We'll keep everyone posted as soon as we make up our minds on that. We wanted to see how this went, and it went very very well. Kurdt (Vanderhoof) has sent me a couple of things here and there, but it's nothing really that has stuck yet. We pretty much stopped doing that to focus on (70000 Tons Of Metal). So when he gets back he's got a few things to do, and then he's going to bury his head in writing some new stuff. It'll be phenomenal. He's a great writer. I'm really looking forward to it."
"Well time will tell," Ronny replies when asked if this is a permanent reunion, "We'll do a record, and we're just not going to do things the way that we did before. We're not 25 anymore, not saying that we're old, but we need to do things the right way."
"Everybody understands that this is a complicated business," Plate adds. "A lot of things had to fall into place. We gotta get a good record put together and done first, to be honest that's the first thing. There's a distance between some of the band members, but that's really not so much of an issue. It’s really getting the music to the ears of the fans, in their hands and then getting with someone who can put us in the right environment, at the right show, working with the right band."
