{INTERVIEW} {DESOLATE PATHWAY}

13695875_1008499035930342_1466238882_n



There comes a point in ones life when you really connect with a band, where no matter what they do, you stick by them. The faces change and you worry the music may suffer, become less than what your used to. In some cases this happens, passions fade and so does the enthusiasm. The same cannot be said for relatively young band Desolate Pathway.

Since their inception a mere 2 years ago so much has happened within’ the confines of the band that could lead anyone on a one way path into despair. Band changes from right to left, up to down. Set backs, cancelled shows..the list goes on. However through all of this two faces have remained constant. Those faces being Vince Hempstead (Vocals, Guitar) and Mags (Drums)

On today’s show we have a very in depth interview about all the trails and tribulations regarding the band since day one. I won’t delve to much into it here but all will be revealed on this episode of the Withered Hands Podcast. So sit back and enjoy a very candid and open chat about the music, people lying, people leaving, moving forward, DP’s and Game of Thrones endings.

Welcome one and all! On today’s show I had the fortunate pleasure of Interviewing two members of now not so all female (doom/sludge/stoner/what-ever else you wanna add on!) band shEver!

Jesse (Guitar) + Alex (Vocals) join me in the withered hand hotseat to let me and all you know all about the past-present and (wobbly) future of the band. We talk of people who have come, people who have gone and people who get pissed off with you spilling their whisky! We hear how Chris is the only woman in the band! We talk about odd bands they have played with, small venues they have played in, the time they got asked to carry on playing even though they had such little material at the time! Belly dancing and of course City Of God..

All this and whole lot more, including selected cuts from the bands history. So strap yourself in, plonk on your headphones or press play through your computer and listen away!

As I Introduce…ShEver!
