To say that the last few months for Saliva has been a rough stretch of road would be an understatement.

With guitarist Wayne Swinny's brush with death from double-pneumonia last month and the departure of original bassist Dave Novotny a couple of weeks ago, the band continues to persevere despite these setbacks.

Never fear, Wayne and front-man Bobby Amaru are holed up as we speak working on new material that according to Swinny is proceeding as follows: "aka Kid Dynamite rockin' it in the studio today - new stuff soundin' good 'n heavy."

We'll keep you posted.
