In other news, Lane's "Back Down to One" solo album, which was originally released in June 2003 via Z Records, has just been reissued with three extra tracks. Jani is also looking for a suitable label to release his "Jabberwocky" project, which was bootlegged from the studio before it was finished and mixed and was eventually sold for upwards of $100 on eBay a few years ago.
Lane is currently working on material for a new solo record and is taking part in a recording project with friends from RATT and the ALICE COOPER band. No further information is currently available.
