We are in pre production at this time and will start recording some time in February. The new material is very reminiscent of songs off the first two records plus maybe a few unrecorded songs such as Southern Comfort and Game of War.

If this happens we will record three new songs never heard before."

During Sex Action, a former Prom Queen Starz song we had them sing along to the chorus, every song was a hit last night. They didn't want us to stop! It was a great night and we had alot of fun."

Jizzy Pearl told EG, regarding the upcoming Love/hate shows: "Love/Hate fans are definitely gonna get their money's worth at these shows, because the songs still sound great and everyone's having fun. It's just gonna be a general fun thing. And we're gonna play a lot of songs, again, mostly off 'Blackout,' which was the best record probably. I'm gonna sing 'em the way they sound on the record. I'm not gonna put the octave device on and sing it lower. That's the cool thing. I've always prided myself on trying to sing the songs as best I could closest to the way they were recorded. I don't think anybody wants to go to a show and hear a different rendering. They want to hear it the way they hear it in their head. I feel ripped off if somebody starts doing an Elvis renditioning of 'Blackout in the Red Room.' That's just not happening. They wanna hear that distinctive shriek, that pulling-off-the-tail-like quality of my voice."
