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 Jalen Hall of Days To Come.
METAL ANARCHY: How have you been holding up during the coronavirus pandemic?
HALL: I’ve gained all the weight and I’m sad now. I was a shiny star blessed upon the mortal world, but then everything changed when the Rona attacked. Only my weight loss, master of all great pictures could stop it. But when I needed it most, it vanished. Now I’m lumpy.
METAL ANARCHY: Have you been using your downtime to work on new music?
HALL: Absolutely! The boys and I have really taken this time to experiment and really test our creativity with new songs.
METAL ANARCHY: What was the last show you played or attended before the shutdown?
HALL: Back in February we did a three day tour with Silvertung. It was a really great time and we made some awesome friends along the way. I’m looking forward to our next tour with them.
METAL ANARCHY: Are you planning to play any livestream concerts during this time?
HALL: Heck if I know. We’re really trying to set up a game plan for the future. The subtleties and care that must be taken into account when creating our blessing which is music is of utmost importance. So in short… maybe.
METAL ANARCHY: Do you think the live entertainment industry will ever recover?
HALL: It may take some time, but hopefully sometime next year we can get back to some sense of normality.
METAL ANARCHY: Lastly, is there anything fans can do to help your band or others that may be struggling during this time?
HALL: Just show any support you can, tune in to new music, follow bands through social media. If you feel so inclined, maybe even buy some merch. Everything the fans do means the world to us. We can’t wait to see all of you again when shows make a comeback!
