Wednesday 13 is the reason that horror punk is still relevant today. In his 20 year career the workaholic rocker has been the driving force behind a host of awesome bands, including of course the iconic Murderdolls. Since 2005 Wednesday and his band have pumped out six killer studio albums, with number seven 'The Dixie Dead' just around the corner. After slaying Australian audiences at Soundwave earlier this year, Wednesday is making his return to our shores next week for a brief run of east-coast shows as part of his 'Spook and Destroy' tour. Stopping in with Killyourstereo was Wednesday himself, check out what he had to say!
Melbourne hardcore band Warbrain are just about to kick off their national tour supporting Californa's Xibalba, and during the drive to Coffs Harbour for the first show of the tour, the band's bassist Kain McWaters and guitarist Josh Manitta answered a few questions for us about the tour, as well as Hardcore 2012 and the band's upcoming release.
Even within metal's endless labelling and over-specific sub-genres, Germany's War From A Harlots Mouth have always been a hard band to pinpoint since their inception in 2005. With the group's debut Australian tour kicking off this week, guitarist Simon Hawemann kindly caught up with KYS recently to talk about touring, German brew and the possibility of a new studio album in 2012.
Creepy horror punk legend Wednesday 13 never sits still for too long. After a series of solo releases and hard touring from 2005, Wednesday jumped back behind the helm of the Muderdolls alongside Joey Jordison in 2009 and releases highly popular album 'Women And Children Last.' With the re-energised Muderdolls project back on the shelf indefinitely, Wednesday has just released his 5th solo album 'Calling All Corpses.' With the new album under his belt, Wednesday is ready to do it all again and is making his way to Australia in March as part of Soundwave Festival. He recently stopped by Killyourstereo to tell us all about it.
We Are The In Crowd are on the verge of releasing their debut album "Best Intentions" through Hopeless Records, which is set to push their female fronted brand of pop punk further than ever before. The band will also be making the trip to Australia this month as a part of the Counter Revolution shows, so we caught up with the band's vocalist Tay Jardine to discuss what has been happening with the band.
Since releasing their debut full length, To Plant A Seed, in 2007, We Came As Romans have gone from opening small shows to headlining some of the biggest festivals around the world. As they gear up to release their second full length, Understanding What We Have Grown To Be, guitarist and lyricist Joshua Moore took some time out to chat with Kill Your Stereo about the album and of course their upcoming spot on The Devil Wears Prada's Dead Throne tour.
Melbourne hardcore outfit Warbrain started off as a outlet for the members to work on when they weren't busy with their other bands Carpathian and Hopeless, but they have quickly become a band to keep your eye on in the current Australian hardcore scene. The band is on the verge of releasing their debut 7" "Paranoia", through Trial And Error Records, and we caught up with the band's front man Lloyd to discuss the band.
Queensland metalcore outfit Wish For Wings have been steadily building a name for themselves in Australia and beyond since bursting out of the Brisbane scene around 7 years ago. Fresh off the back of a tour with Stick To Your Guns/First Blood and with a brand new studio release 'Echoes' recently dropping, we caught up with the bands bassist Aido Spinks for a few words.
We Came As Romans are barely 5 years old and are already taking the hardcore/screamo world by storm. Already having released 2 EP’s and a full length album titled 'To Plant a Seed' which dropped in 2009, Michigan local boys We Came As Romans are definitely a band on the up and up and one to keep an eye on hopefully with a new album to come in the new year.
Making their debut appearance in Australia for December’s ‘No Sleep Til' Festival, We Came As Romans are bound to recruit some new Australian fans with their own style of Pop-Metal.
Lead guitarist Joshua Moore took some time out to answer a few questions.
I spoke to Ryan Lake and Sam Hart back at their launch show for their debut album Whispers and Fragments, which was back in May. We talked about the cliche scene, to leaking of albums and finding success independently.
