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 Weird Tales.
METAL ANARCHY: How have you been holding up during the coronavirus pandemic?
WEIRD TALES: Kriss: Barely, dude… barely. I got even fatter, more frustrated, angrier, and sceptic or even started to despise people as a whole. This pandemic showed real conditions of our society and distilled some of our worst characteristics. Unlike previous disasters, which seem to unite people, this one divides ’em further and further… . I just got sick… of it, and I hope I get well soon.
METAL ANARCHY: Have you been using your downtime to work on new music?
WEIRD TALES: Dima: Yes, that’s why we are here I guess, right? New album “Y’all Motherfuckers Forgot ‘Bout Good Ol’ Son of a Bitchin’ Blues” is out! Available on coloured Vinyl, Tapes and CDs.
Kriss: It’s Really worth checking out!
METAL ANARCHY: What was the last show you played or attended before the shutdown?
WEIRD TALES: Dima: We played one gig after the first wave when here in Poland restrictions were eased for a short time. Really great time. Missed it.
METAL ANARCHY: Are you planning to play any livestream concerts during this time?
WEIRD TALES: Dima: Maybe
Kriss; If that’s all there is anymore, why not?
METAL ANARCHY: Do you think the live entertainment industry will ever recover?
WEIRD TALES: Dima: I hope so, everything should return to “normal” like it was every time in history. And if not I have to change shit in my life and don’t even wanna think about it (laughing)
Kriss: I hope it’ll recover and even improve. I only feel sorry for the club owners which in Poland are now losing their businesses due to some pricks at the helm of our country. I hope there will still be places to play in when it’s all over. Hang in there!
METAL ANARCHY: Lastly, is there anything fans can do to help your band or others that may be struggling during this time?
WEIRD TALES: Dima: Spread the doom dudes. Invite you friends to your place, waste them with weed and vodka and then put on “Hard Times Killing Floor Blues” as loud as possible. And see them die.
Kriss: Hang in there dudes! We’ll be back no matter what (except of our demise) or maybe even then! Cheers!
