Times have changed greatly since Trixter was releasing megahit videos on MTV and blazing up the music charts with fun and energetic style. Listen to bassist PJ Farley explain how the new musical landscape and business model has actually eased the pressure on him and his band.
I’m pretty excited to bring you 10 year veteran metal punks Johnny B Morbid as We Love Metal’s Band of the Week. The guys create an accessible sound that crosses the lines of genres and appeals to fans of many different musical forms.
