Veruca Salt's original lineup reunited last year and in the spring they released a 10" single -- their first new material in 16 years. They aren't stopping there -- according to Nina Gordon and Louise Post, a new full length album is in the works. The pair told City Pages that they just finished tracking the album and will likely release it this fall. Gordon and Post also talked at length about how things are going post-reunion, and from the sounds of it, their relationship couldn't be better:

"We've also been co-writing now and it's been really fun. It's something that we didn't do before. Now we're literally throwing ideas back and forth at one another and working together. For some reason that seemed too threatening when we were working together originally.

I think it's because we were trying too hard to figure out who we were as songwriters independent of one another. We were in our 20s and thought we had to be really precious about our lyrics and the song structure as we were finding ourselves. Now we feel confident in our songs and in each other's talents and abilities."

Veruca Salt is currently touring the U.S. and for the most part seem to be preaching to the converted according to Nina Gordon:

...these shows that we've played (only 5 so far) have really been mostly ├╝ber-fan shows, you know what I mean? They're small clubs and the people that are coming are people that either were too young to see us when were playing back then or people who did and have just been waiting and hoping that we would reunite."
