According to MTV.com
percussionist M. Shawn "Clown" Crahan
will be teaming with Lincoln, Nebraska, band DIRTFEDD
for their new album
, "The American Nightmare"
. The recording is set to be held at Omaha's ARC Studios
, which is owned by indie-rock producer Mike Mogis
. "They are from the Midwest, which gives them a big advantage in how to shape their own vision, rather than get caught up in clichéd scenes," Crahan
said. "I personally cannot wait until we give this art to the world. It's time things change."
