Pick up place as locus of the Haida have dessert our first place river plate does Japan really we wanna pick a place and bands that have been. Super duper supportive through her journey and the bad part of it and that's that's how that decision so it didn't. It's a great venue to especially on a Saturday night not only are you going to get dedicated fans that are coming out but a bad. Honestly there's a lot of foot traffic in that area so there's people to just wanna come drink a beer they're gonna actually watch a really rad show so yeah. She can kick on over bizarre after for some some doubling don't blink on the for the show to talk all the time goes red star amendment listen I'd love I love playing places I love playing out. It you know get on stage and and playing music is is that there's a thing from me about it. At 35 years old I gotta be honest you know like picking places with good talkers. Yes I think. So the forty booked them ask yourself do we have populace if that. So we got a couple songs here at the start things off by Jericho hill and the album is called the C was hijacked again I will let you know they are playing this coming Saturday at Hyde died Saturday September 8 the record release show of this album suicide Jack. And ultimately take notice and be still my beating heart is there anything you guys wanna say about these songs before we jump into. Does it take notice is up you take notice Vegas is the best way to put it at which is up right now on YouTube if you wanna check it out actually listened to it here all right round on its Tucson which Erica hill. If you wanna talk to the ban to a 6421 rockets while local on the rock. I mean to me. In the I have everything. Learn. It's level here on nine point nine KI SW the rock of Seattle Jericho hill in studio and and playing a couple jams from them that record sounds huge congratulations guys. Thanks man's huge it sounds awesome they I'll meet again is called the suicide Jack in if you like what you heard definitely come check it out it's alive. The record early show I'm assuming you'll be plan it's mostly songs from the south I think we're if we're gonna we got a couple tricks of a slew of our sleeve and I could only hear a lot of the album at the show that's awesome guys gonna be yelled you pick up physical copies of the CD err yes there we got him ready to go we will have them. At the show. Fifteen bucks think puts one in your hand little Manhattan. Are right like that Jane's Alibaba respect that so again I Jericho hill explain. Saturday September 8 the record release show ended that is going on at the high dive in Fremont you'll be able to see why army and the wreckage would shedding crossing crusade it starts at 8 PM. So what I have Jericho hill here in the studio wanted to go a little bit deeper about kind of like grown up what what music got them into. You know want to become musicians because if if you listen to the music. Personally I can hear a lot of of influences in there it's kind of middle kind of punk just driving melodic rock but. Definitely a lot like Haiti. I can hear some like even some like Iron Maiden influence or something in the area of the bush ready stuff so. I would score on the Republicans are what Malcolm I guess since your closest to me what. What the end. Would you say really kind of gave you that has that that lightbulb moment where you heard it sot lies and you legislate. I got it pick up an instrument or I got to start seeing in a wanna do this I wanna play music I want to be the DN. Neither. There's three that are on par or me a it. Different number I'm very collecting I love all kinds of music mean everything kinda gets me going Billy jolt. I don't know I say at a piano man dude I can't I can't get enough they got the very first CDOs ever given ever bought myself. Was Styx greatest hits OK I gotta go sticks yeah and then when I finally pick a my first made a record not us. Yet negatives imagine it would make a record you'd I got on one day. A guy. Canned and extinction yeah Metallica and justice for all. It was a device and then I got a appetite for destruction on one trip to Circuit City and I'll blow your hair back you know I knew my African mine man about it they buy it when this this. That's awesome ride on let's go to continue around the room. So I think army. The first time that I eight went to a concert or everything clicked in the place for me you know Imus thoughtful awesome day it is and and crawling experiences like visually stunning he had authority and that kind of music sure. It's just. You know at the root heart my soul. Them and Alice in Chains with an keyed in with neem no is just because it was thought that their music is. Like reminiscent of things that most people enjoy at a music yet eclectic and interesting and unique at the same time okay yeah I agree it's amazing. Alice in Chains tool can go wrong with those two out. Are you back texts. Yeah. If you if it's embarrassing you can still delicate and it doesn't. Back in maybe move. The only and he answers thousands before it became. Three okay little outdoor concert at this from the age in Tennessee right. And Lleyton comes he came Eckert and on yeah bring. House for a room full crowd which it begins the age squished. Memories feeling this is awesome yeah my parents were buying you know electric today at progressive places crappy acoustic when that's been in at a gathering rust now ice and those started it. It's all uphill or downhill from there they look at depends on who you ask I guess. Maybe if you ask your parents at the time they think downhill differ from that they. Aren't. Continuing on meant I was got a late bloomer right policy was not into music all as a kid and then. More to beamer ethical everything and Ripley would complete sports that the security teams all that stuff and then I think Ellis most of them. Nine or ten or something like that and I heard. I heard so cold by Breaking Benjamin on the radio well I think is on 99.9 C. Yeah lifetimes say yes I just over here in that song it just something kind of clicked you know at at the it's it's not like you know a drum focus or drum heavy song or anything but just that. Here in that I listen to like a lot of other stuff that was really similar to that in just. Like I was thought of music is just this thing that like people go to close to gain steam with them when I heard how much emotion much feeling you can put a song kind of and lessons and just kind of clicked in there and and drums especially religious kind of access libel moment you know that I have to dia meal here from Russia or something and eight feet if it does well on the song in India. And here at the end and guess he's been able to put feeling behind music is pretty awesome absolutely. Product and even. So you know. The this might be alone very phantom and a nother about there so when I was probably seven years older so my sister who's four years will mean is it. Actually huge New Kids On The Block and and bill rides style yeah yeah and and you know it's it's what 190 yeah I'm an immediate myself though that Geithner only 901991.

A girl's screen yet and the and then you know looking around to seeing thousands upon thousands of girls screaming and I was like you know that there's something to this.

Can be still my beating heart aka round. Continue. Uneasy. Click the like all of them. It's. Take notice and we played balance and a congressman. We also played that continent audience. And a I think that. I think. For me it seems she runs which we haven't played and yup get the record here that one outlet Dallas won it going into recording it was probably mighty my least favorite of the bunch and then after that he recorded here yeah it turned out became my number one. It's awesome yet it's it's it's one of the slower ones in the and it's kind of got a fairly heavy subject matter and we put a better group to and I don't know man a I was really proud of everything that dude come on so well and the un to go to eastern sky. This has won her about the planet's. It's a more technical guitar part and it's a lot of fun for replay. So you wrote a lot of lyrics yeah that that's the song rather than they. I wrote about. Come back from being the army be human rack and by amazing wife Shelly can help media. Just find me again. So that's awesome. Well congratulations for that new you know fully integrating back. The local rock rock scene man and seems to be doing pretty healthy so thanks nasty negative in my first death metal screaming that's when to its spiritual there you give a ride on.

Tara and yet to or an Nathan Reno last through quick that we just that kind of confirm maybe suspicions about the name Jericho hill. Yes it oh yeah the dark tower yeah but I'm king of we thought that them. You're right we didn't come across the name lightly though we you know we didn't know how to name the band initially so we have this whole. Tournament brackets set up were weak put all these names against each other. There's all kinds of stuff on there there was like coffin birth and adjusters dead and coop was one of the actually the finalists was group and yet and you're really radical group yeah it was US troopers Jericho hill and an apartment I wanna say it was must've been like three against two yet there there are there those close numbers and future. I personally I think I thought it was gonna just being Johnny Cash reference but you know I think that's what he's the only other Jericho hill that we found dead is he Johnny Cash should be banned in Scotland out you know can't tell what a hard goals as a band just you know it's like with them yeah like this album's out what are we do you know you ask you'll.
