StandBy Records is an independent rock/metal label from Cleveland, Ohio that has propelled the careers of several notable artists including Emarosa, Before Their Eyes, and most recently metal heavyweights Black Veil Brides. Black Veil Brides have become a juggernaut on the Billboard charts and received numerous awards and accolades. At the company’s helm is StandBy Records CEO and Owner Neil Sheehan. As the music business continues to evolve, Sheehan’s company has remained relevant with their finger-on-the-pulse of industry trends and by nurturing and developing upcoming bands. I took some time to have a chit-chat with Sheehan about what’s going on with the music industry and his record label and artists.

Shai Hulud guitarist Matthew Fox has been busy touring in support of the band’s latest album, Misanthropy Pure. Recently I hung out with him in Oshawa, Ontario where I got to ask some questions about touring, metalcore and how the writing is going for the next Shai Hulud album.
