According to Blabbermouth.net, Vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway of British grindcore pioneers Napalm Death was interviewed on the "Scary Terry's Saturday Nightmare" show.
When asked if there is a question that he wishes someone would ask him in an interview but no one ever does, Barney replied, "Are you gay?" He added, "No, I'm not, but there's lots of rumors about me out there. I mean, not that it matters. I find it quite amusing; I'm deeply touched by that, actually. Yeah, I think people sort of put two and two together and make five. Because I've always been very open about talking about things like sexuality and stuff, people come up with a miscalculation and just assume that you're gay. I'm not, but it is quite amusing. But nobody will ever ask me that outright. And I'm always willing to talk about stuff like that. People shouldn't be afraid of discussing stuff like that openly."
Napalm Death's latest album, "Utilitarian" sold around 2,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The CD debuted at No. 14 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
Napalm Death's previous album, 2009's "Time Waits For No Slave", opened with around 1,800 units to land at No. 19 on the Heatseekers chart.
"Utilitarian" was released on February 27 in Europe and February 28 in North America via the band's longtime partner, Century Media Records. The cover artwork perfectly fits the album's theme and was created by the Danish artist Frode Sylthe, who is also responsible for The Haunted's "rEVOLVEr" artwork.
