Alien Ant Farm will return this summer with its third major-label full-length, "Up in the Attic," due July 25 via New Door/UME. Produced by Jim Wert, who helmed the band's 1999 independent debut "Greatest Hits," the new set is the first from the group since a 2003 European bus crash that killed AAF's driver and nearly paralyzed lead singer Dryden Mitchell.
"We've been through so much, both triumph and defeat," says Mitchell. "But it's been cool that we've kept our fans. I'd do this forever. We're having fun."
The same day, AAF will release "BUSted," a DVD chronicling life on the road as well rounding up music videos, interviews and concert footage. The band is also plotting a summer tour in support of "Up in the Attic."
AAF shot to fame with 2001's "ANThology," which reached No. 11 on The Billboard 200. It spawned the band's hit cover of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal," which reached No. 1 on Billboard's Modern Rock chart.
Here is the track list for "Up in the Attic":
"Forgive & Forget"
"What I Feel Is Mine"
"It Could Happen"
"Around the Block"
"State of Emergency"
"She's Only Evil"
