The Honest Brutality team is proud to bring you an exclusive conversation with Tavis Stanley of Art of Dying. Tavis was kind enough to be a part of our show and talk about Art of Dying’s new album “Rise Up” as well as his guitar school, childhood, and anything else we could throw at him. As if that’s not cool enough, we are beyond excited to premiere for you TWO NEW TRACKS! “Best Won’t Do” and “Space” from Art of Dying’s newly released album “Rise Up”.
Canada turns out some pretty amazing rock and metal acts. One of which is Art of Dying. I had the opportunity to converse with Jonny Hetherington (who is very tall by the way) and Cale Gontier at the Aftershock Festival last weekend. These guys were killing it on stage and were fresh faced, full of smiles and amazing to sit down and talk to. They have an EP available now and a full length album getting ready to drop. Check them out!
I have been following these guys since the Egypt Central days. I remember the first time I heard Devour The Day, and at the time not knowing the connection. Seeing these guys perform and then getting to sit down and talk with them off and on the mic was truly one of the highlights of the entire Aftershock Festival 2015 for me personally. You won’t meet two musicians as talented, cool, funny and laid back as Blake Allison and Joey “Chicago” Walser.
I was lucky enough to sit down with Kyle Shutt of The Sword for a short conversation at the Aftershock Festival last weekend. An awesome guitarist and very cool guy. The Sword are the true kings of “gangster metal”. Enjoy
The Sawyer Family are a band that hails from the Eugene Oregon area, and are unlike any we have seen or heard.
