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!

Tom

{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!
