The Browning: Fusing Music Into A New Sound

The Browning is a very unique band that has been bridging a strange hybrid of hardcore and electronic into something that you really haven't heard before. Well, they got the attention of Korn, who asked them to open for them, so I guess you can say that they're doing something right. I caught up with lead singer Jonny McBee and we talked about the history of the band, where they've been and where they're going:

The Dead Daisies Don't Let Broken Limbs Slow Them Down While Visiting The US

The Dead Daisies, who herald from Australia, recently stepped on US soil for the very first time as they took part in the 2013 Rockstar Uproar Festival. That visit, powered by the strength of their album Lock'N'Load, helped to grow their fan base here in the US tremendously. I talked to lead singer Jon Stevens as he took a break from rehearsing and he gave me the cliffnotes version of how the band got to this spot:

We As Human: Seizing An Opportunity

We As Human are definitely a band who makes the best out of any given opportunity. Whether it's a chance meeting with Skillet frontman John Cooper and an opportunity to pass off one of their CDs to him or an opening slot of the 2013 Carnival of Madness Tour, they seize the opportunity. I got the chance to sit down and talk to lead singer Justin Cordle as the band prepared to head out on the Carnival of Madness Tour:

Papa Roach : Still Swinging Despite Vocal Setbacks

Papa Roach has really come a long way since their major label debut album in 2000. Their sound has developed as well has the band's members as the road has proven to be a bumpy one at times. Lead singer Jacoby Shaddix has fought personal demons along the way as well as vocal issues which have side lined him more than once. I caught up with  guitarist Jerry Horton before the band joined the 2013 Carnival of Madness Tour and he caught me up on all things Papa Roach:

Blue October Embark On A New Musical Journey

Blue October is one of those bands who come along and change your life. Lead singer Justin Furstenfeld is one of the most passionate artists to ever grace a stage. I had the pleasure of talking to him as the band was about to embark on their latest tour to promote their new album Sway. As always, when you talk to Justin, he puts it all out there and doesn't hold back; just like with his music.
