The Downbeat with Craig Reynolds. I'm basically gonna talk to a bunch of my interesting mates, usually musicians.
Emma Boster - Dying Wish
1:28:24My guest this week is Emma Boster, singer of metalcore band Dying Wish. We talked about her sick band and their sick new album 'Fragments Of A Bitter Memory' as well as veganism, bacon people, and much much more.
Aaron Weaver - Wolves In The Throne Room
1:51:46My guest this week is Aaron Weaver. Co-Founder/Drummer of Atmospheric Black Metal band Wolves In The Throne Room. We talked their upcoming album 'Primordial Arcana', as well as earth magic, meditation and much, much more.
Hana Devore - Fitness Pro
2:46:14My guest this week is Hana Devore, fitness competitor, coach, and keen biohacker. I caught up with her to discuss everything from fitness and biohacking to relationships and strong ass weed. It was a great time!
Courtney LaPlante - Spiritbox
2:02:12My guest this week is Courtney LaPlante, singer of Spiritbox. Spiritbox is a metal band from Canada, and they are really, really good, possibly my favourite new band right now. As it turns out, Spiritbox are a fan of my dumb content too so we were basically just really nice to each other for 2 hours. Spiritbox's new album Eternal Blue is available for pre-order now!
Tobi Duncan - Trash Boat
1:21:22My guest this week is Tobi Duncan, singer of Trash Boat whose new album Don't You Feel Amazing is available for preorder now. We talk about working in a call centre, Tobi's coming out as a bisexual man, his knee surgery (and his subsequent painkiller addiction) amongst other things. It gets a bit sexy. Enjoy!
Jesse Barnett - Stick to Your Guns / Tradewind
1:42:44My guest this week is Jesse Barnett. Jesse is a man of many talents and bands, including my personal fave hardcore band Stick To Your Guns, but I caught up with him ahead of his OTHER band Tradewind's new record release to discuss that for at least 10 minutes and then mostly talk about guns, communism and cereal.
Josh Smith - Northlane
1:38:55My guest this week is Josh Smith, guitarist of Northlane. As well as playing guitar for the Australian progressive metalcore (?) giants, Josh is also a manager and keen cyclist. We talk about all of that, and a bunch of other stuff. Just listen to it. Peace!
Matt Halpern - Periphery
1:50:52My guest this week is Matt Halpern, drummer of Periphery and co-owner of GGD. Back again but this time to talk about many things including: his as-yet-untold worries about playing live, playing annoying parts guitarists have written, his new snare drum, NFTs, and much much more. Peace!
Justine Jones - Employed To Serve
1:18:50My guest this week is Justine Jones, vocalist of UK metal band Employed To Serve and co-owner of Church Road Records. I caught up with Justine at the end of last year to talk about the band's new album and new drummer Casey, our boring lives in lockdown and running a label with her husband Sammy. Peace!
Adam "Nolly" Getgood - Producer
2:07:20My guest this week is producer, engineer, mixer, guitarist, bassist, and espresso master Adam "Nolly" Getgood. You may know Nolly from his work playing with Periphery or producing bands like Animals As Leaders, The Devin Townsend Project, Architects and many more. I pretty much explained the many strings to Nolly's bow in sentence one so obviously we spoke about those, as well as his VST instrument company GGD, our thoughts on drums, drum tracking and what makes a good drummer, as well as coffee and of course: his favourite bands.
