Katatonia’s Jonas Renkse Talks Pandemic on The MetalSucks Quarantinecast #10
You’re quarantined, we’re quarantined, everyone’s quarantined, including all the metal musicians you love. In our new series, The MetalSucks Quarantinecast, we’re connecting with metal musicians in their homes to find out how they’re coping with isolation, how they’re staying busy during these trying times, and how the coronavirus pandemic has impacted their band’s plans.
Our latest guest is Katatonia frontman Jonas Renkse, who tells us about the mixed results of the Swedish government’s relatively lax response to the coronavirus, how the band’s label, Peaceville, asked them if they wanted to postpone the release of their new album, City Burials, his thoughts on the future of the music industry in light of the pandemic and whether he’ll need to eventually get a “real job” if this drags on for too long, and more.
