Hard rock glam party guys The Midnight Devils have been itching to bring their music to Australia for a number of years and finally get the chance later this month when they join the legendary Donnie Vie on a run of shows. In fact, the band are so excited frontman Sam Spade called me from his home in Chicago just to tell us what to expect!
We also spoke with John Floreani from Trophy Eyes about their upcoming album Suicide And Sunshine, caught up with Sean from Heists to chat about their new track Left To Loathe, and we also made time for Jesse from Eagles Of Death Metal about their upcoming tour.
Our audio round of backstage interviews from Spring Loaded concludes with wicked chats with Bodyjar, Screamfeeder and Eskimo Joe, but they were all so good we decided to publish the full video of each chat as well, starting this week with the Frenzal Rhomb laugh fest.
Australia seems to be the touring centre of the world of late, and we announce even more shows from Mezmic, Pierce The Veil, Slowly Slowly & Stand Atlantic, Dance Gavin Dance, The Poor, Jet, King Parrot, The Screaming Jets, Rex Orange County, Deville, Dreamkillers, As Paradise Falls and Ocean Sleeper plus an awesome line-up for Froth & Fury Festival, this weekend’s Riff Mountain at the Back Room and a great new festival in Brisbane called Helvegenfest.
Then there’s new songs from Clowns, The Beautiful Monument, Carbon Black, Heists and Days Like These to check out plus we premiere the new cracker from Vultura.
As usual, the Aussie metal and music scene is thriving so get amongst it.
Until next week, stay HEAVY and have a great weekend
