The bad news is that this year's Call Of The Wild Festival has been postponed because of Coronavirus, however, the good news is that it will still take place later this year at the Lincolnshire Showground over the long weekend of 18th to 20th September. The rescheduled festival will still operate on the same basis, i.e. three stages, camping, glamping, VIP, etc. but due to other touring commitments, the organisers have had to swap Phil Campbell & The Bastard Sons to Friday and Massive Wagons to Sunday. Unfortunately they have also lost Michael Monroe on the Saturday, but they are currently working very hard to bring you an equally great Saturday headline act!
Brain Stem Interview
Today's Track Of The Day features Brain Stem on The Zach Moonshine Show talking about and playing brand new tracks from their new conceptual EP 'Symptoms of Annihilation - Stage 2'. Consisting of Logan Magnuson - guitar, Alex Mcintosh - drums, Brad Fife - bass and Jessy Leduc - vocals, the band is an outstanding example of what experimental Death Metal has to offer, and the EP is the second chapter of a journey that began with 2018's 'Symptoms of Annihilation - Stage 1'. Established in 2016, Brain Stem isn't the easiest to define with an exact subgenre. Noted to be groovy at times, but also technical when needs be, they've made sure that their sound is not limited by one train of thought, molding Metal the way they see fit.
Not only will multi-platinum singer/songwriter Kip Moore release his highly-anticipated fourth studio album, 'Wild World', on Friday 29th May, but Moore also gave his notably loyal fan-following a taste of what to expect, recently performing 'Magic' for Minnesota Country Station K102, in quarantine, which is today's Vdeo Of The Day. Co-writing all but one of 'Wild World's’ insightful thirteen-song tracks, in deeply personal terms, Kip even self-produced the set, with help from David Garcia, Luke Dickand Blair Daly on respective tracks. The weathered heartland-Rock sound Moore has embraced on previous efforts gets its emotional volume pumped up, recorded live with a full band, as substance takes precedence over style and the timeless prevails over the trendy. Moore admits the results include a few quirks – but that just gives 'Wild World' the character he values so much.
