Interview with Jaidyn Hale (Among The Restless)

STM:  Hi There Jaidyn, thanks for your time today, firstly congratulations on the new EP Define which is out now.  Clearly, Covid had a huge impact on the recording and timing of the release, how did you find the process? Were there many delays and hurdles you had pop up? 

Always a pleasure and thank you! Covid has most definitely made it hard over the past few years but nonetheless, we have persevered and all made it through. We were lucky enough to have actually already made the venture to Red Engine recording studios in Brisbane and laid down all the tracks last year before that last bad lockdown hit us. In regards to releasing the EP, I think the biggest thing was we wanted to wait and be able to experience it with our fans, friends, and family in person. Without being able to gig and support what we are so proud of it wouldn’t have made sense to us to release.

STM: As a relatively new band forming not long before covid hit you have done extremely well pushing out singles during times when gigs were vetoed, and the music industry was stopped in its tracks. Your determination as a band certainly shines through and has given you the results looking at your Spotify streams. You must be so proud of the band's achievements. 

One hundred percent, not being able to see each other and especially not being able to rehearse wasn’t great and took its toll on us. Considering how much of the early stages of the band were hindered, I think we have really pulled through and shown that nothing can stop us from doing what we love.

STM: You traveled to Brisbane and put yourselves in the safe hands of renowned recording royalty in Steve James (The Sex Pistols, The Jam, The Angels, The Screaming Jets, Airbourne), tell me a bit about working with him and your recording process.  

Without Steve, none of this would have been possible. His guidance and expertise in his craft made recording our first EP a breeze so to speak. Basically, we start by jamming through the songs together and getting a feel in the studio. After this, we all track our parts individually, and then it all gets roughly comped to hear a basic rundown of the mix. Throughout this stage is where a lot of change happens in the songs with new ideas thrown in or parts are taken out. It was such an amazing experience, and we are so looking forward to getting back up there as soon as possible!

STM: Define has a wonderful arc listening to it from start to finish, it has a great flow and concludes with the sublime Growing Pains. The addition of strings lifts this song from bloody great to amazing, was that extra layer always part of the plan?  

When recording that song initially we knew we wanted it to be big. Lachie had this amazing vision from the start and it was just missing something. The addition of the violin really uplifted the whole song and added such a cool atmosphere, and helped to even more encapsulate the sort of direction we were taking the song. 

STM:  Slave Within The Change is like a big slap in the face with its ripping riffs and angsty lyrics, how was the writing process, and who put pen to paper with that one, or was it a joint effort?  

Slave Within the Change was an awesome song to record and personally my favourite off the EP. I remember working on it through a couple of rehearsals with Josh and Lachie a few years ago and laying down a rough foundation for what the song became. Lachie and Rhett wrote the lyrics for this one and then it came back to a rehearsal where we refined and made the song what it is now. 

STM: The EP launch and regional tour are kicking off in just a matter of days, you and the boys must be pumped to be out on the road and performing live gigs?  

It’s amazing. I don’t think we could explain how excited we are if we wanted to! Being back on a stage has been an absolute blessing and it’s going to be so awesome to go to places we haven’t played at yet and bring our music around Victoria.

STM: It’s hard to fit everything on your EP was it difficult to leave some of your original singles off? You have some pretty popular ones to choose from. 

I wouldn’t change anything about the EP. I think the way it plays from start to finish really sets in stone the experiences we went through and how we as a band felt over the last few years. For those of you wanting to get your hands on a physical copy of the EP, you may be surprised with a little extra something on the CD!

STM: Rumour has it that you have been behind a drum kit since you were two years old, is there any truth in that?  

That is completely true! Some say I was born with drumsticks in my hands.

STM: Fun question to close out, you are stuck on a desert island and have three bands on repeat, who are they?  

That’s a hard one, but for me, at the moment Ocean Grove would absolutely take the cake. Two others I would pick would be Warrant and Megadeth, although it’s really not an easy choice! 

All the best on the tour and with the new EP Define, I look forward to getting along to a few of your gigs and enjoying live music again. 

‘Define’ serves as a consolidation of character through recent rough times, pouring our heart and soul into our music, thus ‘Defining’ ourselves. – Among The Restless

GOOD THINGS FESTIVAL: TISM EXCLUSIVE: Scott’s Real Concession Speech

TISM last night overheard the ex-prime minister deliver his real concession speech in the building recently named after him; they were hiding by the windows, whilst he stood in the Morrison Hotel, by the doors.
 
Mr. Morrison: Let me first clarify one thing. Some people are claiming I intended to win the recent federal election, and so remain this country’s leader. I reject this entirely. No fair-minded person, once having closely studied our policies for the future or our performances in the past, could have thought we were serious about running this country. After all, one of our candidates was Alan Tudge. Moreover, I have put this charge before the infallible judge upon whose deep wisdom and moral probity I have always relied – and Phil Gaetjens has concluded he agrees with me. Some may quibble Phil was investigating the very person he works for, but that wouldn’t bother him, as he’s used to it.

            These scurrilous accusations are as false as the criticism that I am an untrustworthy bully. Untrustworthy? Look at what I did when Josh fecklessly blew $19 billion on JobKeeper. Imagine what I’d’ve said if he’d been a Labor treasurer! Imagine! Nine-teen-bill-i-on! Yet I have never once spoken to him about it. Not once. This shows what a supportive leader I was.

            And a bully? Well, first off, these accusations seem mainly to be made by women, which shows half of the population never had a problem with me. Second, women aren’t powerless because men like me despise them; men like me despise them because they’re powerless. I would never bully anyone who has power over me, and I’m no sexist: that includes a powerful woman. If I ever met one, I’d prove it.

            After all, I have a wife and daughters, as seeing Jenny often reminds me. And where are women more respected than within the family? If I didn’t believe this, would I have had a deputy prime minister like Barnaby Joyce? As Barnaby told us often during the same-sex marriage debate, he supports the family. In fact, he supports the family so much, that he’s got two of them. He was too modest to mention this at the time, which I think says a lot about the man.

            It may be that, to some cynical journos, I might have looked and sounded like I wanted to win this election. Well, they can follow what they’re told by their senses – but I grew up being taught there are other, better things to believe in. If there’s one thing my faith has shown me, it’s that if nothing is true, everything is possible. I have always strongly supported Australians’ right to freely choose the beliefs they want to force on other people. My own strict Christian faith allows me, for instance, to ignore not only the many explicit, written, unambiguous biblical injunctions that prohibit charging interest on loans, but also to disregard the fifteen centuries of Christian practice during which those rules were enforced; whilst at the same time, I bind myself whole-heartedly to always following that same Bible and those same centuries of tradition regarding, say, the roles of men and women. This instinct I have to instantly choose to believe whatever I want, whenever I want to – a habit of mind taught to me by my faith – was the basis of my political career. To me, it doesn’t matter so much what we do with power – more important to me is that it is us doing it. As all Australians know, we Liberals don’t mind institutions having great wealth and influence. But they’ve got to be the right institutions. Why, banks robbed, cheated, provided criminals with millions in laundered cash, sold products to dead people – we backed them to the hilt. But the superannuation industry not only provides working people with protection from the vicissitudes and poverty of old age, but it also invests in green energy, was set up by Paul Keating, and is often controlled by the unions. No wonder we hate them. All Australians can see the difference. I want to make this clear: Jesus is universal and super, but that doesn’t mean he supports universal super.

Finally, let me ask all Australians: did I lose the election? Did I? After all, I’ll be back – if not me, my ideas will be. And you don’t need a majority to win over Australia to my way of doing things. You just need (to use the phrase of Joe Hockey, a person who grew up trained in the demanding moral ethics of real estate agents) is a committed minority who are lifters, not leaners; who lift themselves, no matter what, disregarding others, rather than lean on their fellow man in the repugnant belief that we have mutual obligations to a common good. In this way, my rule lives on. People sensed in me a hard nut of selfishness, a bullshitter’s ability to win through, a faculty for ignoring any legitimate grievance if it conflicts with my self-interest. Everyone has had a boss like me – the bloke you bitch about only after he’s left the staff area. (You wait because he’s the boss: what a great exemplar of power!) It was important that not only was I a bullshitter, but that I was an incompetent bullshitter. If Australia is a country where only the talented, the original, the creative or the competent get success, where does that leave people like me, who only have rat-cunning? My example has shown the nation it needn’t be so. As Josh points out, we threw all that JobKeeper money at rich business people because they might not have applied for it if they had to pay it back. Of course, they would only have had to pay back the stuff they didn’t deserve to get. And that’s not the LNP way. If the Australian business class only gets what it deserves, what’s the point of government at all? And where would it stop? Why, people deserve good health care, fine schools, a maggot-free lunch in aged care, but you didn’t see us doing that. Besides, robo-debt showed how we got poor people to pay back even the stuff they did deserve. In the end, it all balances out. Only an idiot can’t see the system works. I may be out of office, but I’m not out of power. You don’t need everyone to be like me; you only need enough of us to not do our bit, drop the hose, decline refuge to the powerless, ignore the sick, disrespect the peacemaker, and I truly believe then the spirit of self-interest will do its holy work, and so force the rest to abandon the common good and act the same. I’m changing Australia in small increments, and soon it’ll be like climate change: too late to change back.

This is why it is impossible for me to have wanted to remain this country’s leader. I was never a leader.
 
TISM [attempting a gotcha question]: Can you name the seven dwarves?
 
Mr. Morrison: Of course! I loved them all as a kid, and tell Jenny she should read their story to ours. There’s Self-Importance, Duplicity, Flim, Flam, Smoke, Mirrors, and, lastly, loveable Colbeck.
 
TISM: Is it true that you will play live with us during the Good Things festival in Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane on December 2nd, 3rd and 4th?
 
Mr. Morrison: I reject the premise of your question. However, I can certainly see why TISM has decided to play live again. Now myself and my cabinet are out of office, there is an opening for public appearances by grotesque clowns.
 
TISM: Can you at least confirm Tim Smith, ex-member for Kew, will be driving the TISM tour bus?
 
Mr. Morrison: Shit yeah. No brainer.
 
TISM’s preferred pronouns: Shithead/Smartarse.

GOOD THINGS FESTIVAL 2022 Huge Line Up Announcement!!!!!!

Australia’s largest and favourite traveling music festival, aka Good Things Festival, is officially returning to ignite mosh pits and more along the east coast in December – and we can’t wait to celebrate with you!
 
With so few things to celebrate over the past few years and a severe lack of live music and festivals, it’s about time we all had something to look forward to; and Good Things Festival is bringing the good times and then some, offering a world-class line up entirely worth the wait.
 
To kickstart the celebrations lying in wait this December, Good Things Festival 2022 has confirmed none other than one of the world’s most electrifying and successful rock bands BRING ME THE HORIZON to headline proceedings. With BRIT and Grammy nominations, multi-platinum selling releases, and over 1 billion YouTube views in their wake since forming in the early 2000s, BRING ME THE HORIZON continue to push expectations and sonic boundaries, and their live performances are nothing short of show-stopping, to say the least.

They said it would never ever happen, but an Australian miracle will also take place at Good Things Festival – for their first live performances in 19 years, iconic and gold-selling larrikins TISM will be exclusively appearing onstage.
 
Forget the tone-deaf empty platitudes, Good Things Festival has also brought American heavyweights DEFTONES to ramp up festivities. Hailing from Sacramento, California, DEFTONES are undeniably one of the most innovative and enduring alternative metal acts of all time, and they’ll be in extremely good company alongside rough-and-tumble punk favorites NOFX this December as well. Pioneers of SoCal punk and nearly four decades into their careers, NOFX will perform their 1994 iconic album ‘Punk In Drublic’ in full and all your favorites at every Good Things Festival 2022 appearance, with all the hooks and refined raucous energy primed to explode on Aussie stages.
 
Speaking of Aussie stages, a band no stranger to playing at home and abroad is none other than The Amity Affliction, with the Queensland metallers set to bring their melodic and majestic brand of metalcore to the masses. Wielding their latest release, 2021’s EP ‘Somewhere Beyond the Blue’, as well as a horde of old favorites, this is one astounding affliction you’ll be ecstatic to experience live in action.

The party will be in full swing when Japanese rockers ONE OK ROCK take the stage, with the quartet’s dynamic blend of pop-rock, post-hardcore, and alternative rock set to simultaneously ignite some good vibes and dynamic singalongs. And fresh from releasing their chart-topping 2021 album ‘Fortitude’, French progressive metal behemoths GOJIRA are ready to unleash all the earth-shattering polyrhythms, blast beats, and thought-provoking thematics fans have come to know and love on Australian soil.
 
The metal vibes keep coming with some delicious goth heaviness via Italian quintet LACUNA COIL, while noise firebrands and habitual party starters FEVER 333 will be lending their voice to the celebrations, as will the crushingly brutal Ukrainian hell-raisers JINJER. German metalcore shapeshifters ELECTRIC CALLBOY will be making their first-ever trip down under for the occasion, with superstar start-up JXDN also set to chalk up his first-ever Australian performances.
 
Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper party without the inclusion of some other punk favorites, with appearances locked in from Swedish troublemakers MILLENCOLIN and Californian pop-punk lords THE STORY SO FAR, as well as some triumphant sets from Norwegian punk rockers BLOOD COMMAND and Florida alternative giants SLEEPING WITH SIRENS to ensure a blistering blowout of epic proportions.
 
The festivities continue, with American electronic music duo 3OH!3 and urban punk duo NOVA TWINS guaranteed to get you all fired up. And heavy metal icons SABATON will arrive armed with their brand new album ‘The War To End All Wars’, choosing Australia as one of the first to hear the new tunes live, while SOULFLY will also fly the heavy metal flag, returning to their adoring down under fans after one of their longest periods away from Australia in their 30-year career.
 
But it’s not just the internationals we’ll be celebrating with this December, with an army of Aussie beloveds also ready to roll. Australian punk rock institution COSMIC PSYCHOS, a band who can claim Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder as a mate and musical peer, will be storming the Good Things Festival stages. Fellow Aussie staples also set to appear to include rock and electropop trio REGURGITATOR and emphatic ARIA-nominated rockers KISSCHASY, as well as formidable artisan punk storytellers CHASING GHOSTS.
 
And that’s still not all! Join some of Australia’s favorite alternative exports at Good Things Festival this year, from some melodically charged mayhem courtesy of Sydney metalcore outfit POLARIS, to some lush modern heavy charm via Melbourne’s THORNHILL – and some fiery, razor-sharp moments from everybody’s favorite screaming rap-rock-electro-pop mutants REDHOOK for good measure!

THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA Announce New Album ‘Color Decay’ & Share ‘Salt’ Music Video.

The Devil Wears Prada — Mike Hranica (vocals), Jeremy DePoyster (vocals, guitar), Mason Nagy (bass), Kyle Sipress (guitar), Jonathan Gering (keys, synthesizers), and Giuseppe Capolupo (drums) — have announced their eighth album Color Decay. It will arrive on Friday 16 September via Solid State.

PRE-ORDER COLOR DECAY HERE 

Salt is a song about trying to move forward and then feeling like nothing ever changes, even when you’ve seemingly done everything right,” the band says. “It’s the sort of feeling that makes you question every move you’ve ever made. Initially, the lyrics were just about having trouble writing songs for our new record, but soon, we realized that this feeling of fighting only to be stagnant and held down applies to so much more in our lives. It was really a breakthrough track and allowed us to dive in even deeper into what became Color Decay.

Color Decay follows 2019’s The Act. As Revolver stated when selecting the record as one of the 50 Most Anticipated Albums of 2022, “The Devil Wears Prada have proven time and time again that it’s possible to never stop sonically experimenting — with screamo, with spoken word, with atmospheric electronica, with sludge — and never lose their own crushing identity. Anticipating their next successful risk is one of the things that makes being a TDWP fan so rewarding.”

The Devil Wears Prada have been consistently delivering since forming in 2005. Fans voted 2009’s seminal With Roots Above and Branches Below one of the 5 Greatest Metalcore Albums in a Revolver poll, with the magazine christening it “a true metalcore landmark.” The group has notched six consecutive Top 5 debuts on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums Chart, including Dead Throne (2011), 8:18 (2013), Space EP (2015), Transit Blues (2016), The Act (2019), and ZII EP (2021). The latter served as a sequel to one of their most beloved projects — 2010’s Zombie EP. In the wake of the EP, the group exceeded a-quarter-of-a-billion cumulative streams and views. During 2021, the musicians decamped to remote hideaways together in Wisconsin and Desert Hot Springs, California. This time around, Jon took the reins as producer, collaborating closely to assemble a rich sonic architecture for what would become Color Decay.

The band will also embark on a headline tour throughout August and September, joined by Stray From The Path and Dying Wish. The Devil Wears Prada will perform the Zombie EP and the ZII EP in full, along with a selection of greatest hits, making each show a special night for TDWP fans both new and old!

02. Salt
03. Watchtower
04. Noise
05. Broken

Interview with JOHN CORABI

Journeyman, stalwart, or just The Mayor of Rock ‘n’ Roll, John Corabi certainly needs no introduction.

As the voice of The Scream, The Dead Daisies, Union, and ESP but perhaps most notably, as the voice of Motley Crue during their brief departure from life with Vince Neil in 1994, anything featuring the raspy vocals of JOHN CORABI cannot be mistaken.

On the eve of the release of his autobiography “Horseshoes and Hand Grenades”, in which he recounts his life from the streets of Philadelphia to the Sunset Strip and beyond, JOHN CORABI brings his intimate solo acoustic show to Australia for the first time in what can be considered a career retrospective of sorts.

Fans can expect to hear Corabi perform music from all stages of his career intertwined with stories and anecdotes that only JOHN CORABI can deliver.

They don’t come more seasoned than Corabi and with a wide repertoire of rock ‘n’ roll at his disposal, this will be a unique insight into one of the biggest and most recognisable voices in rock ‘n’ roll.

JOHN CORABI – Solo & Acoustic, Songs & Stories Australian Tour Dates

Thursday 2nd June – SYDNEY, Crowbar

Wednesday 8th June – BRISBANE, Brightside

Thursday 9th June – MELBOURNE, Northcote Social Club

The Guardian said, “A joyous and long-awaited return”, The Age stated, “Half concert, half singalong, Crowded House filled the Bowl with love” and The Advertiser Adelaide proclaimed, “There’s a commitment to the purity of pop, the marriage of lyric and chord to create something close to perfect.”

It is only the band’s third Australian tour in the last 15 years.
