TesseracT’s James Monteith on The MetalSucks Podcast #363
This week our guest is TesseracT guitarist James Monteith! We discuss the current climate in the U.K. as they go into their second shutdown due to COVID-19, how promoting records has been a booming business during this time (for his day job as a metal publicist), the band’s plans for their next record and how they feel about releasing new material without being able to tour, the luxury of having no deadlines when creating music, relearning songs from his past, trying to figure out how to perform live for the fans via streaming, and his personal frustrations during the pandemic.
Petar, Brandon, and Sylvia also tackle the revelation that Deftones guitarist Stephen Carpenter is a flat-earther, how we handle conversations with people that share Carpenter’s beliefs, and Brandon’s relationship with comics that have similar viewpoints as Carpenter.
