Ever since Minus the Bear broke up, we have been hoping that Botch would reunite. And as Lambgoat points out, the latest update is that vocalist Dave Verellen said on the Peer Pleasure podcast that he "would love" to do a Botch reunion, but that "the odds are really low."

Botch drummer Tim Latona was the only member to not continue a music career after Botch broke up.
