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 Wreche.
METAL ANARCHY: How have you been holding up during the coronavirus pandemic?
WRECHE: Hanging in there. The ceiling fan is still in tact.
METAL ANARCHY: Have you been using your downtime to work on new music?
WRECHE: Oh yeah – working on the Erik Satie Gnossienne & Gymnopedie cycles, a few new solo piano pieces, and of course, I used most of last year to finish All My Dreams Came True!
METAL ANARCHY: What was the last show you played or attended before the shutdown?
WRECHE: I performed with the Handsmade collective (label) for the premiere of the Wreche self-titled film – it was a feature set for “Today at Apple” at their Union Square SF headquarters.
METAL ANARCHY: Are you planning to play any livestream concerts during this time?
WRECHE: Yep! Just rehearsing at the moment- last October, I did several live streams of Wreche’s eponymous album.
METAL ANARCHY: Do you think the live entertainment industry will ever recover?
WRECHE: I think it will blow up- people really want live music back.
METAL ANARCHY: Lastly, is there anything fans can do to help your band or others that may be struggling during this time?
WRECHE: I think supporting the bands you love by buying or rebuying their records- it keeps them confident that the world cares about what they are doing, and it puts some money in their pockets for whatever new projects they’re working on.
