- The Lemonheads will release a new album in April next year. Head Lemonhead Evan Dando told Billboard: "Yeah, there is new music, and I'll be recording in January. But I don't want to talk about the record too much. After touring for 10 months, we've given the album a fair shake, but the exciting part of the next tour is that it's with the people who actually played on the album. It's the first tour with Bill and Karl, so to me it's like a rebirth of the record." A deluxe edition of the band's beloved breakthrough record It's a Shame About Ray (1992) is also set for release in March and will include B-sides, demos and a bonus DVD.
