TYPE O NEGATIVE Side-Project Forced To Search For New Band Name

February 16, 2004

The new side-project featuring Johnny Kelly and Kenny Hickey from TYPE O NEGATIVE along with Rob Traynor from DUST TO DUST, have been forced to resume their search for a band name after learning that SKYND ("skinned") was already taken.

Despite not having a name as of yet, the three are well into writing what is being described as "a solid catalogue of killer skull-smashing tracks."

As previously reported, DUST TO DUST drummer Steve Tobin has been working with TYPE O NEGATIVE frontman Peter Steele in a separate side-project, the details of which have yet to be revealed. Hickey has contributed guitar solos to several songs on DUST TO DUST's recently released sophomore effort, "Sick", which is available through Traynor's own Psyclone Records.

In other DUST TO DUST-related news, Rob Traynor has become the proud father of two "beautiful" babies, a boy and girl, Thomas and Taylor Traynor. Both were born on January 17 at 7:34 and 7:35 p.m., respectively.
