I recently spoke with Mat Welsh, guitarist and vocalist for the British metallic hardcore band While She Sleeps, about their newest disc, This Is The Six. Since the release of their debut EP in 2010 the group have been gaining momentum and were even winners of “Best British Newcomer” at the 2012 Kerrang! Awards. Here’s how the conversation with Welsh went.

Moreland & Arbuckle’s new album is out August 23rd and My Old Kentucky Blog and Paste have posted videos by the Kansas-bred rockers that are sure to sear their songs into your cranium. MOKB posted the song “Purgatory” – whch features Aaron Moreland wailing on his custom made electric cigar box guitar – saying it “just plain smokes.” Paste has the album title track “Just a Dream” a tune that Premier Guitar says captures the “rawness of their live shows.”
