Jamey, love the podcast. Great to hear a business perspective on the industry. A good band to interview or do research on is 3teeth. This is the UNSIGNED band that was handpicked to be the opener for Tool's arena tour this past Winter. Pretty remarkable if you think about it in today's industry. A real life Rocky Balboa! They have done everything on their own thus far and are creating quite the buzz. A new album is due on their own label in early 2017. As a fan of old school industrial, they are the freshest thing we have heard since Demanufacture.
mentioned this on episode #207 thanks!
How did the Otep/Hatebreed show come up? I think it's awesome. Love both the bands and always thought they'd be a good match, but wouldn't make much sense on paper. If it ever worked out down the line I'd love to see an Otep/Hatebreed tour. Or at least a show in Massachusetts where I live. Haha (p.s. a boston show would be killer. I know the promoters in boston aka live nation are lame and rarely book metal unless it's top 40, but a 20 minute train ride is always nice compared to an 1 1/2 hour one to Worcester. But I know it's not in your control)
By the way, just wanna say the podcast is very insightful and educational. I went to school for entertainment management and seriously think all students I went to school with should have had to listen to an episode of the jasta show. Super insightful about rock and metal music, and just the music business in general. Keep up the good work!
Currently listening to Episode #203 and the discussion about metal stations. Just wanted to throw it out there that there is an online TV network that streams heavy metal music videos, interviews, and more 24/7/365. It's called Heavy Metal Television and it's free to band and fans! Love this network, super cool. Thanks for another great podcast! \m/Jamey Jasta responded on 11/21/2016
