Published May 12, 2011Another week, another batch of new videos for you to check out over on Exclaim! TV. Once again, Sam Sutherland brings us some more interviews with a few of punk rock's finest in Garageland and a few more visitors drop by the Exclaim! office.
Against Me! are going to be releasing Total Clarity, a collection of demos and previously unreleased songs, on May 24, and Sutherland caught up with the band's frontman Tom Gabel (pictured) to talk about the new record, the ever growing and changing Against Me! audience, and Gabel's internet encounter with (who he hopes was) Canadian superstar Bryan Adams.
Also making their way into Garageland this week are Jersey boys Thursday. Vocalist Geoff Rickly and drummer Tucker Rule talked to us about how the band came to develop their sound with their new album No Devolución and how they have grown since their pivotal album Full Collapse back in 2001. And last up on Garageland is Set Your Goals guitarist Audelio Flores. Check out the video to find out about the different crowds that the band have got to play for over the years and their approach to their upcoming album Burning at Both Ends, which is set to be released on June 27.
Over here at the Exclaim! office, we had Frank Turner stop by and play us a new track called "Nights Become Days" off of his new album England Keep My Bones, which comes out on June 7. He also took the time to talk to us about his favourite show to date and what he might be doing if he wasn't making music.
We also had Wax Mannequin and Mayor McCA drop in while on their, appropriately named, BFF tour. The two buddies sat out on our deck and interviewed each other, which resulted in something so good that we had to make sure you'd see it all. Part one of that interview is up right now so be sure to watch it to hear about everything from Mayor McCA's killer beard to Wax Mannequin's misfortunes touring during those harsh Canadian winters. While you're checking that out, be sure to watch Mayor McCA performing his song "Judge Judy" for us. And keep an eye out for part two of the interview and a performance by Wax Mannequin to be posted very soon.
