Dance star Moby is turning his back on electronica to re-embrace his punk side.

After flirting with the genre on his 1997 disc ANIMAL RIGHTS, Moby is ready to rock once more.

He says, "Over the last year I've written lots and lots of punk rock songs.

"They are definitely in the 'fun but very rough camp' of punk rock songs.

"The punk rock record is finished and it's really fun. Maybe we'll put it out next year."
