A holiday album from ... REO Speedwagon?!?




"And I'm gonna keep on lovin' St. Nick?" Maybe "Can't Fight this Mistletoe Feeling?" It just doesn't feel right.

REO Speedwagon has just announced plans to release Not So Silent Night ... Christmas with REO Speedwagon in November.

"Slowly but surely, in between tour dates and during our vacations, we have been recording this not so secret project," lead singer Kevin Cronin announced via e-mail. "The reason we kept it a bit secret was that I was never really sure if we were going to pull it off in time for this Christmas."

Cronin expects the albums in stores and on iTunes in early November. No word yet on song titles and overall sound.

"Usually Christmas albums tend to be the type of projects that get thrown together rather quickly but not us. We got into this record with the same level of intensity that we do on any record we make," Cronin said. "We are as proud of this as anything we have ever done."

Will REO play any tunes on their fall tour? We'll see. Don't forget that REO, Styx and Night Ranger play Tampa's Ford Amphitheatre on Oct. 30. Click here for dates closer to your city.
