We hit the ground running at the Melbourne and Brisbane legs of the East Coast run to get you up close and personal with a stack of bands from the roster. Podcast host Paul 'Browny' Brown was joined by Wall of Sound writers Carys Hurcom and Tamara May who caught up with the likes of Parkway Drive, Simple Creatures, Ice Nine Kills, Violent Soho, Reel Big Fish, Enter Shikari, Poppy, Simple Plan and Slowly Slowly to get YOU up close and personal and asking the questions YOU want to know... Does Winston McCall from Parkway Drive care about the ARIAs? What does the forthcoming Simple Plan album sound like? What part of Australia do the boys from Reel Big Fish want to visit that not many Aussies have ventured to themselves and how does pop punk icon Mark Hoppus react when seeing a tattoo of his face on a massive fanboy? Well, guess you'll have to take a listen to find out as Wall of Sound goes backstage at Good Things Festival 2019 with our 'Good People Doing Good Things' special! #WoSUATW #GoodThingsFest #GoodThingsFestival #ParkwayDrive #SimpleCreatures #IceNineKills #ViolentSoho #ReelBigFish #EnterShikari #Poppy #SimplePlan #SlowlySlowly #MusicPodcast #WallOfSoundAU

Episode #89 feat. Tom Kennedy of Bare Bones

EYEAH THE BONES! An expression of appreciation fans of Sydney hardcore punks Bare BOnes shout with pride any time these lads are in the closest vicinity and we'll be screaming it more often now that they've unleashed their sophomore album Rival Minds upon the world which is tearing up Australia's heavy music scene and proving these guys are the next big thing in genre-crossing rock and metal. Frontman Tom Kennedy is welcomed back to co-hosting duties this week chatting all about the album, it's "mature" sound and how they've pushed themselves harder since sharing the stage with big name acts like Prophets of Rage, Stone Sour and Rise Against over the past couple of years. The lads are here to prove they've got more than just a heavy, party atmosphere sound and they're not afraid to express it with their latest offering (which you should be all over by now) Podcast host Browny also takes a look at Polaris' new single 'Masochist', their forthcoming album The Death of Me and highly anticipated tour alongside some pretty big names in metalcore. There's also plenty of new tunes this week from Ocean Sleeper, Fever 333, Violent Soho, Once Human and Raised Fist, throwbacks from Crystal Lake and Trophy Eyes + heaps more! #WoSUATW #BareBones #TomKennedy #ResistRecords #AustralianBands #HeavyMetal #Metalcore #Hardcore #HardcorePunk #OceanSleeper #TrophyEyes #KillswitchEngage #Polaris #CrystalLake #TheLastMartyr #Fever333 #RaisedFist #OnceHuman #ViolentSoho #MusicPodcast #WallOfSoundAU

'Good Things 2019 Preview'

EGood Things Festival 2019 is fast approaching and if you can't tell, we're so bloody keen for the East Coast run to arrive, so much so, we've tracked down a few of the bands featuring on the lineup for a chat including Enter Shikari, Ice Nine Kills and Trivium. Join podcast host Browny as he FINALLY gets closure from Rou Reynolds (Enter Shikari) about their latest album The Spark which was arguably their most heartfelt release to date and find out why it's taken them over two years to get down to Australia to play songs off it for us. Talking about touring delays, Spencer Charnas (Ice Nine Kills) also discusses why his band took their time to make it to Australia and how he came up with the ideas behind their incredible new album The Silver Scream which features songs written about horror/thriller movies from your childhood. He also talks about what the late Wes Craven meant to him and if the band would consider doing a sequel album with more movies they missed out on. Then Matt Hea...

Episode #88 feat. Frank Carter

EMental Health Struggles hit the best of us, including stacks of our favourite musicians, which is why we turn to their music as an avenue to help us feel better momentarily before we look at other professional options and one bloke who has been fighting his own battles and sharing those struggles with us through his music is Frank Carter of Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, who joins the podcast this week to chat about his personal life and to pass on the important reassurance that there's always hope at the end of it all. Dark clouds pass and this is something we all need to take into account when going through rough patches. Podcast host Browny also addresses Frank's inspirational "Girls Only" moshpit movement which he will be doing at every single show he performs at following the praise he received from fans when it made global headlines at Reading Festival back in August. He's also got a very important message for those who criticise the movement and you know what, we couldn't b...

Episode #87 feat. Ash Costello of New Years Day

EThey only made their debut in Australia back in March for Download Festival and they impressed the masses so much, they heading back almost a year later for their own headline shows so we can really see what New Years Day are made of and to get you all keen, frontwoman Ash Costello is this week's special guest co-host. The two-toned rocker goes back in time with podcast host Browny to talk about why it's taken the band so long to get down under and what the go is with her mesmerising hair! The pair also go over her influences growing up, blending pop with metal and why you'll never see her making an acting cameo in a movie, despite being a HUUUGE Harley Quin fan and her band appearing on the Suicide Squad soundtrack. We also check out the two powerful new songs from We Came As Romans, their first taste of new music since the passing of frontman Kyle Pavone last year, a segment that'll surely bring a few tears to your eyes as you get through their latest offerings. Plus there's throw...

Episode #86 feat. Chad Gray of HELLYEAH

EIt's bittersweet when a band have to release an album following the passing of a key band member (or any member for that matter) but HELLYEAH are in this exact situation following the sudden death of drummer Vinnie Paul last year, just after he had wrapped up recording his drum parts for the band's new album Welcome Home. Instead of shelving the idea and band completely, the members decided to keep Vinnie's legacy alive and continue on with the outfit and the release of his last pieces of work he ever did. On this week's podcast, frontman Chad Gray goes into detail about the journey he and his bandmates faced following the tragedy, including where he was when he received that dreaded phone call, what made them push through and finish off the album and just how much of it Vinnie heard before he left this earth. Now there's wasn't much room to ask questions because Chad had ALOT to offer and talk about in what podcast host Browny has called one of the most emotionally driven interview...

Episode #85 feat. Phil Jamieson of Grinspoon

EWhen you think of iconic Australian bands from the late 90's, you can't go past Grinspoon who have been tearing up stages for the better part of the past 24 years (yes we're including the hiatus too, eat me!) and they're set to do it all again celebrating their BEST songs for a special edition vinyl which will coincide with a massive Australian tour and this week frontman Phil Jamieson joins the show to talk all about it. Join podcast host Browny as he takes a look back at the band's two and a bit decades in the music industry and the pair reflect on where they've come from to what's next. Is there new music on the way? What hasn't Phil crossed off that "bucket list" yet and what about those rumours of him appearing on Australian Survivor last year? Were they true and would he consider it in future seasons? All that and more are covered in the pair' chat. Plus, we go wayyyyy back into the Australian music scene and revive songs from bands you probably haven't heard in a long time (o...

'The Big Sound 2019 Special'

EBIGSOUND is done and dusted for another year and we can safely say there are a lot of us reallly feeling our ages now that it's all said and done, but the best part is we have now uncovered the next batch of Australian bands who are set to take the heavy music scene by storm and luckily for you, we caught up with a whole bunch of them to get you closer than ever before and hopefully put you on the right path to supporting their next big moves. Podcast host Browny caught up with the likes of Reliqa, who despite only graduating high school in 2017, have been taking the scene by storm supporting some big named acts and scoring some pretty impressive streaming hits for their latest Eventide EP. Wither who have been screaming their way into our lives with a fantastic sound behind them. Being Jane Lane, an all-female bunch of punks who set out to have fun and have been gaining a huge reputation (and opportunities) left, right and centre ever since. The Gloom In The Corner, who are some of...

‘Heaven And Hell Special’ Feat. Amity, Underoath, Crossfaith and Pagan

EWe have a jampacked special episode for you this week to celebrate The Amity Affliction's upcoming Heaven And Hell east coast tour featuring Underoath, Crossfaith and Pagan, who, all join the podcast for a chat. The main event is The Amity Affliction's Ahren Stringer who discusses the band's intentions with the Brisbane leg of the tour in which they're hoping to turn the Heaven and Hell Festival into an annual event, if the punters get behind it. He also chats with podcast host Browny about the year that was the Misery saga and the strange, yet totally expected reactions fans had when they first heard the release, some disapproving of the drastic change in style, only for them to come back around the longer they sat on it. He also talks about the band's future, the next release and he reflects on their earlier "glory" days (pun intended) and how far they've come since then. Spencer Chamberlain of Underoath calls in to chat about their last appearance in Australia for UNIFY and why t...
