Chad Channing reveals plans for new album with Before Cars project

Chad Channing has said he would consider working with his former Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic again.

The Before Cars frontman was the drummer in Kurt Cobain‘s band between 1988 and 1990, before being replaced by Dave Grohl.

However, speaking to Rolling Stone, Channing said he’d be keen to hook up with Novoselic again as he prepares to record a new album.


He commented:

I don’t talk to Krist very often, but we have spoken a couple of times within the past year. I would definitely entertain the idea of working with him if the opportunity should arise. Definitely.

Channing added that Before Cars‘ new album will be “a lot different” to their 2008 debut ‘Walk Back’.

“It’s got a lot influence from ’70s singer-songwriter type of stuff. It’s kind of like a mix between David Bowie meets Gordon Lightfoot.

Tracks slated for inclusion on the record include ‘Trip To Mars’, ‘Jerk Water’, ‘How We Run’ and ‘The Last Times’. Channing is planning to release the LP in late 2011 or early 2012.
