ALL Interviews

One the 11th of November, in the basement of the Babylon in Ottawa, ON, PureGrainAudio's Matt Murphy got to chill with The Bronx's vocalist Matt Caughthran; a really chill guy who makes incredible music. His singing on the Bronx's third album is without a doubt some of the catchiest stuff in a ages and the CD itself rocks. If you haven't picked up the record already, then you should! You won't be disappointed. We also talked about an album coming out in march of '09 titled El Bronx. Go type that into youtube to see more. Thanks for watching!

In the world of rock music, there are guitar players and then there are guitar gods, individuals who are the best of the best at what they do. One individual that is certainly amongst the best guitar players of the last fifteen years is none other than Tom Morello. Morello has done it all; from playing in one of the coolest bands ever in Rage Against the Machine to playing with another…

On October 17th at the Babylon Night club in Ottawa, Ontario, Karl Schubach the lead singer of Misery Signals and I got together to chill and talk about their most recent album Controller, their video for "A Certain Death", their collaboration with Fall out Boy and much more. This band has been around for years building their way up through the hardcore underground scene through relentless touring and releasing amazing albums that has defined their melodic hardcore contrast. Misery signals actually ran into a bit of trouble getting to the Ottawa show. Their trailer broke down and they had to spend $4000 to buy a new one so thy could make the show and my interview. Just wanted to say thanks boys.

Their latest Metal Blade effort, Mysanthropy Pure has…

It's been several years now since my dear friend ordered Revanna, The Reason's debut album, and was accidentally sent two copies. He was kind enough as to pass a copy on to me for a listen and I’m so thankful he did. Revanna had so many elements to it, it obviously was an album…

On October 17th at Zaphod's Beeblebrox club in Ottawa, Ontario, I got to chill with Justin Dube (vocals, guitar) and Casey Shea (guitar, vocals) of the rock band Everlea. Their combination of catchy melody and indie rock is something not to be missed. These guys are super chill, so much in fact that when I asked to do an interview on the spot, they were down. Their Self-Titled album has been released through Glassnotes Records this past September and is causing a stir.

Dillinger 4! These guys are more hilarious then you think! Recently on October 8th, while on tour with Punk Legends NOFX, we got a chance to sit down with this rad band and talk about... well just about everything. After 6 years on vacation, the band has finally released a long overdue new CD titled, "Civil War and are now touring all over in support thereof.

Hey Everyone! My name is Matt and I’m new to the PureGrainAudio Team. If you're not already familiar with me, I had been interviewing bands on YouTube all by myself until the nice man Chris Gonda said; “I see something in you kid” and now he’s lending me a hand. I’d like to introduce myself with an interview I did with LIGHTS. What can I say about her; well she is one of the nicest…

Chicago-based Punk Rockers Rise Against hit up Toronto, Canada on October 3rd and again on October 4th for some wicked back-to-back Rock mayhem. Why 2 nights some of you may be wondering... well because they are that effin' good!

On June 22nd, 2008, Hardcore legends Hatebreed stopped through Toronto, Canada while co-headlining on the Jagermeister Music Tour. The Opera House was abuzz with happy fans and our Stoked interviewer Mitch Brown caught up with the legend himself, Jamey Jasta. Jamey had just woken up to do this interview, but was surprisingly astute. Once underway, Jamey talked about Hatebreed as well as his various other bands, project, record label and much more. What's funny about the interview is that Mitch didn't seem to mind the random cord dangling in his face throughout the interview... Oh well, at least Jamey got a kick out of it.

On May 14th, 2008, Motion City Soundtrack brought motion to our city of Toronto along with soundtracks off their most recent album titled Even If It Kills Me. Walking to the show was a drag because it was raining so hard, but once I got there the sun came out and things went smoothly. On the band's dry bus I managed to catch up with bassist Matt Taylor and drummer Tony Thaxton. Check it out.

On May 10th, 2008, People in Planes came overseas to pay us a visit from Cardiff, Whales for a short week to do some promotion for themselves. I met up with them at the Spoke Club which is some fancy-ass club for people involved in media and entertainment. After the interview (where we spoke with vocalist Gareth Jones & guitarist Peter Roberts) I got to…

On May 14th, 2008 Evergreen Terrace came strolling through the slums of Toronto and we figured we'd meet up with them and ask them what the heck was up.

The year summer started in May! Misery Signals made it all happen when they came over the border for their show at the Pheonix on May 14th and brought a whole lot of melodic riffs and hard-pounding breakdowns along with them. Their new CD Controller is not out yet but they happen to give us a little taste of it that night. Want to know what ingredients go into…

As I Lay Dying came through Toronto on Wednesday May 14th at the Phoenix and we managed to ask lead guitarist Phil Sgrosso some deadly questions on their tour bus. The band was headlining the tour and put on a perfect show. We wouldn't be surprised if there was a kid in the mosh pit who died that night listening to As I Lay Dying as he lay dying.

May 4th was both a sad and rad day in Toronto, Canada. Sad, because it marked the last time that Industrial Metal pioneers Ministry were to play our city, and rad, well because we go to see them! What was even MORE rad, was that Meshuggah was their supporting act. Being a band who loves to play in Toronto and always gets a HUGE Canadian reception, it was no surprise then that rhythm guitarist Marten Hagstrom was kind enough to take time out to chat. We talked about the tour, playing with Ministry, the facts behind their punishing new effort, obZen and recording drums in a barn.
on May 16, 2008
On the 20th of December, just before that jolly, warm, fuzzy time of year, Terror hit Toronto, Canada with Chimaira, playing a CRAZY show at the Opera House. Hardcore vets Terror, dropped a killer set, and just prior to the show we caught up with drummer Nick Jett for an interview. Nick talked with Mitch Brown about their…
