Saliva Release Re-Recorded Version Of “Click Click Boom”

Saliva have released a new version of their song “Click Click Boom.” The updated take on the track is from the band’s new EP “Every Twenty Years.” That effort will be released on May 7 and it will feature re-recorded versions of songs from the band’s 2001 album “Every Six Seconds.”

Guitarist Wayne Swinny commented:

“Re-recording ‘Click Click Boom‘ was much easier than the original recording because we already had the blueprint laid out for us. There was no need to alter anything because the original had all the right pieces in all the right places. We simply used the advances in modern technology to enhance the song sonically.”

“I think the combination of multiple genres of music has contributed greatly to the popularity of ‘Click Click Boom‘. Producer Bob Marlette took a song which was a cool, interesting rock song and crafted it masterfully into a piece of music that has stood the test of time for two decades and will continue to do so into the future.”

Wayne Swinny Says Saliva’s Reunion With Josey Scott “Ain’t Gonna Happen”

It looks like Saliva are no longer planning to reunite with original singer Josey Scott. Guitarist Wayne Swinny recently addressed the idea during an interview with Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF and said that “it ain’t gonna happen.”

Swinny said the following:

“We were part of the conversation. After Josey made his announcement, there was a few text messages going on. I did talk to Chris [D’Abaldo] one time. But the problem is, we kind of already have a SALIVA. The problem with doing the reunion show is what do I do? Pull the bus over and say, ‘All right, Bobby [Amaru], Brad [Stewart], hop out, man, to the hotel room for a couple of [months].’ It just didn’t make sense on the business end. There was preliminary discussions, but it never really got off the ground. We just basically had to make plans and keep this train rolling, so to speak. It didn’t make sense to me to stop what we were doing. ‘Cause this unit, we’ve been together, it’s been almost 10 years now, with Bobby in the band. Brad came along shortly after that. We’re tight. We get along. It’s a well-oiled machine. We’ve got a great crew, a great bus driver. It would throw a monkey wrench into the actual SALIVA.”

“Bobby pushed me and said, ‘You know what, dude? If you wanna do it, do it. At least talk to [Josey] about it and check it out.’ I did. But there was no business plan put together. It was one of those — it seemed like a spur-of-the-monent idea, but it didn’t happen. It ain’t gonna happen.”

He also added:

“If you wanna do something, do it. But you can’t just talk about it and have it magically happen. There’s work, there’s planning, there’s stuff that goes into it, and none of that stuff was done early enough to pull it off.

“Yeah, there was some fan response, saying, ‘Wow, yeah, that might be cool.’ But it didn’t get enough steam to take off. All the preliminary stuff kind of got set up, and it just didn’t jell.”

“It just didn’t make sense to stop what we [the current lineup of SALIVA] were doing and do that, because you’ve got momentum, we’ve got a groove going, the band’s tight live. I didn’t feel like we should give that up or give that a rest.”

Fans have asked me all the time if we ever thought about recording some of the old hits with my voice. I’ve sang those songs enough that they have become an important chapter of my life. What better way than to revive this album with an EP to mark the 20th anniversary? People of my generation and all around rocked these tunes before and will continue to. ‘Every Six Seconds’ brought Saliva abundant success and we are all grateful.”

Saliva’s Reunion With Original Singer Josey Scott “Has Been Put On Hold” Due To The Pandemic

Saliva drummer Paul Crosby has confirmed that the band’s reunion with original singer Josey Scott “has been put on hold” due to the coronavirus pandemic. He said the following about that during an appearance on “The Chuck Shute Podcast”:

“Honestly, that is completely [Scott’s] decision. I’m not sure where his head’s at. There was talk of all that, and then the pandemic put the brakes on it. And, obviously, we’re still dealing with the remnants of the pandemic, so I’m not sure what’s gonna play out. All I can is that all that has been put on hold at least for now — till everything clears up, and then maybe we’ll revisit it.”

Josey Scott Confirms That He Won’t Be Joining Saliva On Upcoming “Nu-Metal Revival” Tour

Josey Scott has confirmed that he will not be joining Saliva on their upcoming “Nu-Metal Revival” tour with Powerman 5000, Adema, and Flaw. The singer is still planning to return to the band at some point, but they still have to “iron out some details.”

Scott told Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF the following:

“I just wanted to clarify a few things to the fans and let the fans of SALIVA know that I don’t want to mislead them in any way. And I wanted to respond to the reaction from the fans about the tour that SALIVA is about to do, the ‘Nu-Metal’ tour announcement that came in, to let the fans of SALIVA know that, unfortunately, I will not be on that tour. But soon. It’s gonna be a minute until we can iron out some details. It sucks, but it’s little things that have to be done.

It’s all about the fans. And I just wanted to be completely authentic with the fans and let ’em know that I won’t be on this tour — for the rest of the year I won’t be out with SALIVA — but soon and very soon I’ll be coming back.

I just wanted to be clear with the fans, because I believe that they deserve to know the truth, of course. And I’ve heard some things online about people wondering if that’s me coming back, and I just wanna be clear that I’m not out on the road with SALIVA at this time.”

He also revealed that he is planning to “write some new music”:

“I’m looking forward to writing and creating with [former SALIVA guitarist] Chris D’Abaldo and [SALIVA guitarist] Wayne Swinny. They’re kind of the original nucleus of what SALIVA had to offer, I believe.

I’m hoping to get some new music ready around the anniversary of [SALIVA’s second album] ‘Every Six Seconds’, which will be in 2021. It’ll be 20 years… But, like I said, I’ll be, hopefully, fingers crossed, getting back together with Wayne Swinny. And me and Chris are like dark and light — we’re a package deal. [Laughs] So, anytime that Wayne is ready, me and Chris are ready to go. And we have Tosha Jones, who’s gonna play drums. And we have the ex-bass player for BREAKING BENJAMIN, Mark Klepaski, who’s gonna go in the studio with us and hopefully go on the road and be able to connect with the fans again.”

Scott continued when asked if he already has new material written:

“I have a million ideas. But I’m gonna single it down to two or three. I’m thinking about just releasing a single — just a solo single — to radio. And hopefully I’ll have that ready at least by the end of the year; I’ll have a new song ready to come out on radio.”

Saliva’s Wayne Swinny Says Him And Josey Scott Have Been Talking About A Reunion “For A Few Months”

As previously reported, original Saliva singer Josey Scott recently said that he is planning to return to the band for a new album and tour. Now, during an interview with Detroit’s WRIF, guitarist Wayne Swinny offered more insight into the situation, saying there has been talk “for a few months” and that the reunion will probably start in late 2020.

Swinny said the following:

“[Josey and I have] been chatting back and forth for a few months now. As soon as we started talking, I [told] Bobby [Amaru], ‘Look, man, there’s a possibility we’re gonna do this. I don’t know when. I don’t know the timeline.’ And to tell the truth, Bobby knew the 20-year anniversary [of the ‘Every Six Seconds’ record] was coming up before I did. And before any of this even came up, [Bobby] was, like, ‘Look, bro, if you’re all gonna do some reunion stuff, it’s totally cool. No sweat.’ And then literally maybe a month or two after that, [Josey and I] started talking back and forth.”

He went on to say the reunion will “probably” launch “later on in 2020”:

“The first record came out in 2001, so this would fall somewhere in us doing a 20-year reunion thing, which would be not 2020 but 2021. But what’s happened is there’s been text messages and we started talking. And everybody’s excited — Josey’s excited, I’m excited — everybody’s pumped up. Josey, I guess he couldn’t hold it in anymore. I don’t blame him. It’s been a long time.”

Swinny added:

“We’ve been on great terms — actually, all the ex-members; I’m still friends with everybody. We text and talk and send each other Christmas high-fives and stuff. We’ve all been in touch through the years. Finally, we talked about it enough, and I guess Josey is finally in a spot where he’s ready to do it. So I was, like, ‘Okay, bro. I’m your wingman. Let me know.'”

He also said he is “very thankful to Bobby for being so gracious and cool, and actually respectful all these years too, to the songs, to the original deal.” He continued:

“It’s been great. But for right now — for the rest of this year and for the foreseeable future of 2020, the lineup as it exists right now with Bobby Amaru, Brad Stewart, Paul Crosby and myself, we’ll still be doing some shows and we’ll be collaborating and writing some songs. I know Josey’s anxious to get in the studio and start putting [songs together]. He said he’s got all kinds of ideas. I haven’t heard anything, we haven’t started on anything yet, but, yes, the clock has started ticking. So, it will happen. It’s just gonna be a little bit first.”

Swinny also added:

“If and when everything happens with the reunion, that’ll kind of make its own course. But I can’t quit writing and playing with Bobby too. I’m sure we’ll keep doing stuff.

There’s nothing on paper. I don’t know how long Josey wants to come back — if he wants to come back for good or if it’s gonna be a reunion CD and a reunion tour and then he’s done. I’m not sure. It’s all preliminary and barely been discussed at this point.

As it stands, we will continue to do some shows with the current lineup, and it’ll be business as usual for a while. And then, as things start getting closer, we’ll probably take a break and set up the reunion thing — who all wants to be involved, who is involved. Like I said, nothing is really on paper now. But Chris [D’Abaldo, former SALIVA rhythm guitarist], myself and Josey have spoken. So we’ll see who all else wants to do it.”

Josey Scott Says He Will Reunite With Saliva For A New Album & Tour

It looks like Josey Scott is planning his return to Saliva. During a recent appearance on The Morning Dump podcast, the singer said he will be recording a new album with the band and that he will be heading out on tour with them in 2020.

Scott said the following:

“I’m going to get back together with the guys and we’re gonna do a reunion tour and a new album next year… January 2020, we’re gonna put the old thinking caps on and get in the studio.

“Now that I’m clean and sober, my mind is clear, and I’m focused like I used to be in my 20s when I wouldn’t take ‘no’ for an answer. And I went out, and people told me I’d never make it and they told I’d never get a record deal, and I said, ‘Fuck you!’ and I went and got it anyway — without a high school diploma. I’ve kind of got that focusness back.

“I’m gonna get in the studio with the guys, I’m gonna write a badass record, and we’re gonna go sell it.”

He also added:

“I’ll probably do the lion’s share of [the album] in Memphis with the guys and we’ll come back to Tulsa and put all the finishing touches on it.

“I wanna do something for the fans, because they have been so loyal to us and so amazing through the years. I’ve heard people on the web sites and on Facebook and everything: ‘When is Josey coming back? Can we, please, have Josey back?’ And I want to come back and do my thing.”
