Killer Dwarfs have recorded two new tracks but undecided on whether to release full album
Killer Dwarfs drummer Darrell “Dwarf” Miller was recently interviewed along with guitarist Gerry Finn and basssit Johnny Fenton by Neil Turbin for The Metal Voice.
On whether Killer Dwarfs are working on new music, Miller revealed (with slight edits): “We have some new music in the can. We actually have recorded a few tracks and we want to try them out on the fan base. It’s been a long time since we’ve recorded an album and so we’ve actually recorded two tracks. We’re kind of indecisive right now on whether we’re going to go all the way with a full album or are we releasing tracks like a lot of bands are just releasing downloaded tracks. This new music is exciting because it’s like we didn’t have to work so hard to come up with these. We still didn’t know what kind of animal it was going to be and we were really relieved to listen to it back and say that’s the Dwarfs, that’s us man. Well, we’re playing one of the songs in the shows now. We’ll play it tonight. Initially, it was sort of something we were referring to as the Cheap Trick song. When we got together and played it, it sort of turned into a Dwarf song with a Cheap Trick flavor to it. It’s just a melodic tune. It’s a cool tune. ‘Weight of The World’ is the [name of] the track that we have been playing live. We didn’t intend on playing anything until we released it but we just started kicking it around at one show in Canada and it just felt so good that we continued to do it and we actually want to try it out with the fans you know to see their reaction.”
In terms of whether the Killer Dwarfs will ever re-release the album Stand Tall, Miller indicated: “There’s a bit of politics going on with that record. I can’t really get into too much about it because Epic Records owned the record but we’re going to get it back actually and we can get it back so that’s just something that’s a work of progress. We have people working on that. That record sold 70,000 records in the US when it first came out. It’s a popular Dwarfs‘ record and fans now clamor for it to buy it on eBay for 900 bucks which drives me crazy. It’s a sought-after album to get.”
