August Burns Red Guitarist JB Brubaker on The MetalSucks Podcast #331
August Burns Red guitarist JB Brubaker is our guest this week. We discuss the band’s new record, Guardians, its loose lyrical theme, how the music he’s written has changed since becoming a dad, and knowing when to call a demo a finished piece. We also talk about celebrating the 10th anniversary of Constellations with fans, the band’s plans for rescheduling their scrapped tour with Killswitch Engage, the positive aspect of having extra time at home as a result of that unfortunate situation, his passion for collecting baseball cards, and the importance of keeping your hobbies alive for personal fulfillment.
Petar, Brandon, and Jozalyn discuss the rumors surrounding a new band featuring Phil Anselmo and the three non-Tom Araya members of Slayer, Hatebreed’s decision to postpone their new album, and our thoughts on the spiking sales of Disturbed “Down With The Sickness.”
Songs: August Burns Red – “Paramount” and “Defender,” Heaven Shall Burn – “Eradicate”
