Ween has kept a relatively now profile since the eleventh hour cancellation of its tour last year. But New Hopes finest have recently returned to the studio to begin work on the next Ween album. While fans wait, the group will release Shinola, a new collection of odds, ends and leftovers which contains new mixes of a lot of songs that have been floating around the web for a long time. Produced by Andrew Weiss and Ween, the collection will serve as filler until the group finishes its next studio effort. Ween is expected to hit the road for sporadic dates after finishing this round of writing sessions.
