Episode Summary: Matt and Ben went up to Portland, this time on Metal Blade Records’s guest list, so they we could get a few interviews. We haven’t aired the other two yet, so we won’t tell you who they are, but Unearth was way too cool! We have been Unearth fans since just after The Oncoming Storm was released, and unfortunately for Matt, that showed in the interview. Matt’s fanboy status was over the top on this interview… sorry to the listeners for having to listen to the awkwardness…

Working Class Rock Star is an advisory DVD for musicians of the metal variety to see what they are up against in becoming a ‘rock star’. It features interviews with various people from prominent bands such as Lamb Of God, Arch Enemy, Strapping Young Lad and Bloodshoteye. There are nine informative sections to the DVD ranging from the financial/business aspect of a band, to ways to cope with hectic tour schedules and how balancing your time with a job, family and a band is not easy.

While on tour with Dimmu Borgir, DevilDriver, and Kataklysm, Unearth stopped at the Kool Haus in Toronto, Canada and were connected with PureGrainAudio for a short video interview. Bassist John “Slo” Maggard was kind enough to talk to us on his tour bus and during our brief discussion we touched upon Unearth’s new track “The Chosen,” touring and much more! Check it out!
