  • Mike Dean (Corrosion of Conformity)
    by Jon Beatty on February 18, 2018 at 10:54 pm

    My guest this week is Mike Dean, bass player for the mighty Corrosion of Conformity. I got to chat with Mike during some down time while he was on the road with Black Label Society. We talk about how the band got to play some headlining shows in light of BLS canceling some shows, including a stop here in Grand Rapids. How it was to come up with a headline set on such short notice, and the reception to the new album "No Cross, No Crown" and playing as a 3 pc and now as a 4 pc with Pepper back in the fold. We also discuss the recent news of Slayer and Skynyrd planning their farewell tours, and when COC could be calling it a day. Intro Music: "Ambition" and "Chin Ups" by Chae Hawk Outro Music: "E.L.M." by Corrosion of Conformity Links: Facebook: @corrosionofconformity, @moshpitnationwestMI, @jonsuntitledpodcast Twitter: @coccabal, @moshpitnation, @jonsuntitledpod Instagram: @coccabal, @moshpitnation, @jonsuntitledpodcast Website: Email: […]

  • Sheel Davè (Bad Rabbits/Irepress)
    by Jon Beatty on February 14, 2018 at 9:43 pm

    My guest is Sheel Davè, drummer for Bad Rabbits. This chat was a long time coming, and was interesting in the sense that I didn't really ask Sheel many questions, just let him tell me what has been going on with BR over the last few years. Sheel reveals why the band has been on a bit of a hiatus, as well as taking about why the band has chosen to go back to being an independent band. How the band was ahead of a trend that is now gaining popularity for mainstream artists like Bruno Mars, and how label people laughed at their music. We find how much of what Sheel's been able to do within the Bad Rabbits world comes from his time in his other band, Irepress, and how everything has ties to that...including how Sheel and I first met over 10 years ago. Sheel shares what the band has in store for fans in 2018, starting with their new Rihanna cover song out just in time for Valentines Day, Love on the Brain. Intro Music: "Chin Ups" and "Ambition" by Chae Hawk Outro Music: "Naysayer" by Architects / "Love on the Brain" by Bad Rabbits Links: Facebook: @badrabbits, @moshpitnationwestMI, @jonsuntitledpodcast Instagram: @badrabbits, @moshpitnation, @jonsuntitledpod Twitter: @badrabbits, @moshpitnation, @jonsuntitledpod Email: Website: […]

Jim and I met at local venue The Pyramid Scheme, here in Grand Rapids, to talk a bit about the bands upcoming album, 6 coming out Feburary 16th via Rise Records.

We also go back and look back at their debut album, Changes, which celebrates 10 years of being out this year. What the bands plans are to commemorate this landmark album, and what 2018 has in store for the band and some other hilarious stories from 10 years of touring.

    by Jon Beatty on February 4, 2018 at 7:02 pm

    My guest this week is legendary horror core rapper King Gordy. King Gordy has long since made a name for himself in the underground hip hop scene, "the king of horrocore" to some. King Gordy has teamed with Bizarre of D12 fame to create a new project called Last American Rockstars, or LARS for short. King Gordy and I get into what inspires his controversial lyrics, as well as the concept for LARS itself.

  • Dave Buckner (Papa Roach)
    by Jon Beatty on January 28, 2018 at 8:10 pm

    My guest this week is Dave Buckner, former drummer for Papa Roach. Dave and I get into discussing the immediate success of their seminal debut album, Infest. What it was like being on the road when the album blew up, and if they thought the record would do as well as it would. We also delve into the bands second album, LoveHateTragedy, and what the mindset was for the band going into that album. What it was like to have it not do as well, by comparison, to their first album, and how that would shape the bands mentality going into Getting Away with Murder. We also go off on tangents galore, tour stories, and an interesting story involving Dryden Mitchell of Alien Ant Farm, Dave and Jacoby Shaddix and SO much more.
