You know what’s great about Australian music? When the band are talented and dedicated to the cause, their legacy lasts a lifetime and they just continue to get better with age. That’s one of the things we love about Dead Letter Circus who started out opening for bands like The Butterfly Effect, Linkin Park and Chevelle to lter become a household name and heading out of their own, large-scale headline tours and even scoring a slot at music events like Big Day Out, Soundwave Festival, Pyramid Rock and Sounds of Spring.
The band are back with a brand new self-titled album and frontman Kim Benzie joins the podcast this week as our special guest co-host, chatting about the antics the band get up to in studio and flashing back to the time he joined Deftones onstage at Big Day Out after beating Chino Moreno in a game of table tennis, only to stuff up his part in hilarious fashion.
Plus it’s been a huge week for news with Download Festival announcing their 2019 Australian lineup with plenty of heavy acts to please even the biggest critic and podcast host Browny also discusses the backlash Avenged Sevenfold copped from fans with their new song ‘Mad Hatter‘, which they surprise released last week.
There’s also a stack of proggy-goodness to tide you over from Polyphia, Voyager, Circles, TesseracT, Karnivool, Dream Theater and Cog, New Music from Code Orange, Reliqa and Beartooth + heaps more…
