It would seem that the death of Clem Snide has been greatly exaggerated.

The Brooklyn indie rockers released at least two modern-day masterpieces, You Were A Diamond and Your Favorite Music, and three other top notch LPS before seemingly folding for good after 2005’s End of Love. Frontman Eef Barzelay moved to Nashville and stayed busy with his solo career, releasing the critically lauded Bitter Honey and Lose Big.

But in the spring of 2006, Clem Snide members joined Barzelay to record a new album, Hungry Bird, which will finally see the light of day on February 24th, via 429 Records.

From the press release:

“Throughout 2006, a series of painful and bitter breakups both within the band and with their longtime manager and booking agent occurred and the future of Clem Snide seemed uncertain at best. With the release of Hungry Bird, Barzelay is hoping to put an end to any and all rumors he may have started regarding the death of Clem Snide. In fact, come the spring of 2009, Eef and Clem Snide will valiantly attempt to bring these songs and other fan favorites to clubs and theatres all over Europe and the United States. “ is currently running a contest where you can submit a picture and have Barzelay write a song about it.
