TYPE O NEGATIVE has announced a limited-edition reissue of “Dead Again” available here.
TYPE O NEGATIVE‘s Kenny Hickey comments: The first casualty of this album was the record company — which promptly went under after its release. Soon after, Peter [Steele, TYPE O NEGATIVE frontman] passed, and then even the rehearsal studio it was written and developed in was burnt to the ground by Hurricane Sandy. As the black cloud continued its relentless path over TYPE O, ‘Dead Again’ appeared and disappeared from the streaming platforms for years. Now that the storm has passed, we have some slight hope of establishing a small illusion of permanence with this final release of ‘Dead Again’. We are sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused you.”

In a recent interview with the “Loaded Radio” podcast, TYPE O NEGATIVE drummer Johnny Kelly was asked if there has ever been any talk of staging a concert in honor of Steele. He responded: “Coffee talk. There was never any serious consideration, like, should we do something? Is there even a point of doing it? Or also, is it just a blatant cash grab? So all these things go through your head.
“People celebrate Peter all the time,” he continued. “They do it daily. I see it online all the time and the impact that he had.
“Maybe somewhere down the road there may be something that’s… I don’t know. But I know that for me, it would have to include Kenny [Hickey, guitar] and Josh[Silver, keyboards] as well. Anything that we do, it would have to be the three of us. And there’s no way you’re getting Josh to do anything like that. [Laughs]”
Asked who would handle Peter‘s vocal parts if they ever did end up doing a tribute concert, Johnny said: “I don’t know. I’d want a girl to do it. I’d want a female vocalist — like Ann Wilson[HEART] or something like that. [Laughs] But even so, that’s the first thing. When you think about doing some kind of tribute show, you’re just gonna get all these people… Yes, Peter was very highly regarded by our peers and stuff like that, and you’ll just get a bunch of dudes up there just trying to sound like Peter. And you can’t do that. And it’s, like, all right, so what’s the most remote thing from Peter? You’d have to do something completely abstract. And I would say get a female vocalist. I think Peter would get a kick out of… He would get off on seeing a girl sing his songs, seeing a female sing them. And it would really stress the point of doing something as a tribute instead of trying to recreate something.”
Peter Steele passed away April 2010 from heart failure at the age of 48.
