Volumes Vocalist Michael Barr on The MetalSucks Podcast #343
Volumes vocalist Michael Barr is our guest this week. We talk about his journey from exiting Volumes to eventually returning to the band, and we get an update on the band’s next album. Michaels tells us about their recently-released standalone single, “Pixelate,” its message about the dangers of growing up staring at a computer screen, the digital imprint being more important to your legacy than human interaction, getting bullied for staying silent and refusing to add to the daily noise, if caring too much about your own brand can make you disconnected from other people, and the importance of being able to fuck up so you can grow as a person. Michael also shares a memory of Diego Farias, his former bandmate that tragically passed away earlier this year.
Petar, Brandon, and Sylvia tackle the video footage of Doro’s drive-in concert, our experience with visiting Las Vegas casinos during the pandemic, the power of regulating the media intake in your life, and Protest the Hero’s statement about fans that have a different political agenda.
Songs: Volumes – “Pixelate,” Descend – “Lily”
