Vocalist Brett Kelly`s new tape "Burn" is now available. Brett is also a video director and is working on a horror film. Bands wishing to donate music to the soundtrack please contact Bret. Bret Kelly told Glitzine regarding the forthcoming movie "I just finished acting/directing a comedy called 'Clowning Around' and am now working on my horror movie 'Night Songs', it is about a musician who is under a curse that forces him to live many lives in which he is a victim of evil, two of the stories involve vampires, the other a murderer. I start shooting at the end of the month but probably won't finish until summer (or so). I`m also acting in it. Basically if anyone wants to contribute to the soundtrack in exchange for a movie credit i`m interested in hearing their stuff. Should be cool."
