{Interview} {Estrangement}

I’m baaaaack! HELLO! everybody! its been so long but I am back and I have an interview with the wonder Mr JS Decline of Australian band Estrangement. Now this interview was done a few weeks ago and its no stretch to say it was a complete delight to be able to converse with such a genuine and pleasant guy, not to say that the interviews that have proceeded this have been nasty in anyway (Minus one) its just it feels all so fresh again and this was the perfect start to what hopefully will become the reboot of the show.

This show was two years in the making and all the credit needs to go JS as he has remained respectful and polite and happy throughout all the ups and down and because of him we are hear to today and you are able to bare witness to this.

So without further adieu, get yourself a brew and sit, lay, stand..jump up and down..do whatever you like and have a listen to this show! I truly hope you enjoy it and if you do like what you hear, please check out the links below and show the band some love.

As always, Stay Withered!

{SHOWCASE} {05/07/2018}

 


Episode 05-07-2018 (Showcase)



And I am back and welcome one and all to the reboot of the Withered Hand Podcast, where the hell have I been? who knows! Its been nearly two years since I release an original show and I thought it was about damn time to release a new show! so sorry for the lack of shows in the past two years. Many negative things have occurred that have kept me away from this but I am back and I hope to keep this going as long as possible for you, all of you and for me.

So onto today…This of course is a showcase show where I will be featuring select songs from some bands that have really caught my eye as late. Some of which I know very little about but I hope by you all hearing them it helps you step through that door into their own personal music world and you embrace all that you experience…

{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.
