As is customary with BIG summer festivals, the Warped Tour made its appearance in Canada again this year! With a huge bill and a a long day of heavy rocking, PureGrain staff were able to meet up with Still Remains frontman T.J. Miller and find a quiet spot (onboard their shared tour bus) to talk about the tour itself, their new album The Serpent, their pending tour with Aiden, and some deep philosophical talk about… MUSIC!!!
Maybe you’re getting sick of hearing about SOTU ’07… but whatever… deal with it! For this installment of our viderviews, we are bringing you a candid interview with Amon Amarth frontman Johan Hegg.
You all know that this summer SOTU ’07 demolished the whole North American content! Well, we caught up with an equally devastating group in Job For A Cowboy and spoke with frontman Jonny Davy and guitarist Bobby Thompson just outside the Kool Haus on a grassy knoll. The guys answered questions about their latest music video, new album Genesis, and a whole lot more including tour plans for the rest of the year! Enjoy ya’ll!
On June 27th, in a windy alley outside of the dingy-but-fun venue known as the Reverb in Toronto, Canada, we had the pleasure of briefly chatting with The Red Chord’s frontman Guy Kozowyk. In the interview, Guy told us about the band’s new album Prey For Eyes, the lack of fights on tour, bus breakdowns (what else is new), new guitarists, and most importantly… the answer to the question, “whose toast is it?”
On June 27th, Toronto, Canada was devastated with one hell of a Metal show. There was carnage everywhere, legs and arms flying around, and sweat, spit and blood pouring all over people. It was BRUTAL! During 5 seconds of quiet, we managed to grab All Shall Perish frontman Hernan “Eddie” Hermida and ask him several things about new material, Euro-tours, and BEER! Oh and there was a stupid seagull!
T’was a humid, sticky 2nd day of June in Toronto, Canada when we got temporarily relieved from the heat, with some cool tunes. On that day during the last stop of the sick Tour and Loathing tour, PureGrainAudio’s Spencer Matulaitis connected with Protest The Hero frontman Rody Walker and spoke to him about pissing on tour bus beds, band fighting, oh… and their new record! Plus a random guest appearance by Stuart Aiken, front man of These Silhouettes.
So on an unseasonably muggy Saturday on June 2nd, Toronto, Canada was host to the last stop of the radical Tour and Loathing tour. Just prior to the musical madness at the Opera House, we got the privilege of speaking with Threat Signal frontman Jon Howard in a small, grungy bar. PureGrainAudio’s Spencer Matulaitis spoke with Jon about all that is Threat Signal including; the band’s search for a guitarist, being Canadian, and most importantly… BEER!
On a mad humid Saturday June 2nd in Toronto, Canada the amazing Tour and Loathing tour dropped by our local venue the Opera House. Before the show, PureGrainAudio’s Spencer managed to catch up with All That Remains lead singer Phil Labonte and talked with him in brief about their coming European and Mexican tour dates, the progress on their future album, and of course… videos games!
One of the most popular rock bands in the US over the last few months has been the southern quartet Black Stone Cherry.
One of the fastest growing metal bands in all of the United States is Mastodon. Mastodon is a group of four guys who play some very hard progressive heavy metal. The band has just recently released their brand new album titled Blood Mountain which has been receiving rave reviews for its cool concept of conquering and surpassing obstacles. In its seven year existence, Mastodon has become known as a working class band, playing hundreds of shows every year and touring almost non-stop, bringing their music to people all across the world. Recently, we caught up with Mastodon’s lead singer and guitarist, Brent Hinds, to talk about the new record and how the band formed, among other things.
While Kentucky might mostly be known for its derbies and fried chicken, it’s also quite a breeding ground for new music and new bands such as the group known as Black Stone Cherry.
From straight out of the deep south of the United States comes the no nonsense rock band known as Hinder. These guys have been making major strides towards stardom ever since they jumped on the scene with their hit single “Get Stoned” last year. The guys have also more recently enjoyed another hit with the ballad “Lips of an Angel.” The band has been touring like crazy over the last year, playing shows with the likes of Nickelback, Theory of a Deadman, and Buckcherry. Fortunately enough for PGA, we were able to score an interview with this up and coming band.
