No click click booms just yet, Saliva's reunion with Josey Scott has hit a snag, and that snag is of course, the pandemic.

In 2019, Scott revealed that he was planning on returning to the band for the first time since 2011 and they would work on a new album and tour. A tour was all lined up with Powerman 5000, Adema and Flaw and then COVID-19 happened.

Drummer Paul Crosby was on The Chuck Shute Podcast and was asked about the status of the reunion and said "Honestly, that is completely his decision. I'm not sure where his head's at. There was talk of all that, and then the pandemic put the brakes on it. And, obviously, we're still dealing with the remnants of the pandemic, so I'm not sure what's gonna play out. All I can is that all that has been put on hold at least for now — till everything clears up, and then maybe we'll revisit it."

In a 2019 interview with The Big Mad Morning Show, Josey said of the reunion "I'm going to get back together with the guys and we're gonna do a reunion tour and a new album next year… January 2020, we're gonna put the old thinking caps on and get in the studio.

"Now that I'm clean and sober, my mind is clear, and I'm focused like I used to be in my 20s when I wouldn't take 'no' for an answer. And I went out, and people told me I'd never make it and they told I'd never get a record deal, and I said, 'Fuck you!' and I went and got it anyway — without a high school diploma. I've kind of got that focusness back.

"I'm gonna get in the studio with the guys, I'm gonna write a badass record, and we're gonna go sell it."
