TesseracT Guitarist James Monteith on The MetalSucks Podcast #236
TesseracT guitarist James Monteith is our guest this week. We talk about the meaning behind the title of the band’s new album Sonder, the dark storytelling process for their music video “King,” how shorter records make more sense these days, the importance of trends and timing in modern music, his day job as a music publicist, the correlation between Brexit in Monteith’s native U.K. and Trump’s America, how technology is a part of the identity of today’s youth, the psychology of the modern music fan, how big retailers are to blame for the mainstream fashion trend of metal shirts and more.
Petar, Brandon, and Joz tackle John Travolta praising Fred Durst, our excitement level for the new Daron Malakian and Scars on Broadway record, Burn the Priest’s voicemail advertisement, and the food that best represents America (according to Jozalyn).
