Something old, something new on today’s show.

Tim from Rise Against is up first. The new album from the guys is called Generation Nowhere and drops in June. He talks about the album, the writing process and the meaning of the title cut, plus….

-Live Stream Shows

-His Thoughts On The State Of Rock

-A Funny Story About A Conversation With Tom Morello

-Singing a Cover Song With The Smashing Pumpkins

…and more. A fun conversation for sure!

Then, around the 23 minute mark, it’s a classic interview with the late Peter Steele from Type O Negative. This interview took place outside of Harpos, here in Detroit, in September of 1996. The weather was cooling off and the fall, Halloween spirit was in the air. 

We talks about October Rust, the nude photo shoots he did and More. You can really hear Peter’s humor in this interview. 

Thanks for listening!
