Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “Music In The Age Of COVID-19” series, the feature where I discuss the ongoing pandemic with various musicians. This time I have an interview with David Cardenas of RAHWAY.
METAL ANARCHY: How have you been holding up during the coronavirus pandemic?
CARDENAS: Like everyone else, just trying to do the best I can. Hoping all are safe, well and doing the right thing.
METAL ANARCHY: Have you been using your downtime to work on new music?
CARDENAS: Actually yes, we have a new EP that just came out called Slumlords of New Jersey. Really excited about it and we can’t wait for all to hear it. Aside from that, we also have another EP ready to be recorded and are eager to get back in the studio.
METAL ANARCHY: What was the last show you played or attended before the shutdown?
CARDENAS: (laughs)…I don’t remember it’s been so long. I do remember a really great rehearsal session with the boys that we did a live feed on.
METAL ANARCHY: Are you planning to play any livestream concerts during this time?
CARDENAS: I believe there is one in the works, but while you wait, we did shoot a new video for our hit song “Stone” that you can all check out on our YouTube channel.
METAL ANARCHY: Do you think the live entertainment industry will ever recover?
CARDENAS: Of course, it will. Rock n roll baby! Stay positive!
METAL ANARCHY: Lastly, is there anything fans can do to help your band or others that may be struggling during this time?
CARDENAS: Absolutely, Visit www.RahwayBand.com, check out all that’s going on with RAHWAY. News, Videos, buy CDs, Shirts, Stickers. Support the arts and keep music Alive! Thanks so much for the chat…
