During a recent interview with Metal Injection, Biohazard’s Billy Graziadei offered an update on the band’s current status. He says the group “is kind of like a vibe thing” and “when the planets align and shit lines up, [they] do it”
Graziadei said the following:
“We talk often. I was with Evan [Seinfeld] at a memorial for my friend Scott [Koenig], and it was great to see him. Danny [Schuler] and Bobby [Hambel] and I talk quite often, and during the pandemic there were a few people that wanted to play bass for us. And then during the pandemic, we were all discussing and had a heart to heart. And basically, the outcome was, like, life’s too short. If we don’t take away anything from this pandemic, it’s, like, if we’re going to do something, let’s put the band back together again.
I’m the only member of the band that’s still active in music. I know the guys do things here and there, but it’s what I do with what I love. It’s me, so I’m going to keep going.
With Biohazard, it’s always been a vibe thing with us. It’s not like we sit down and say, ‘Hey, in 2023, let’s make an album. Let’s go on tour and release the album mid-tour.’ In a business sense, that’d be great. If I had the business sense that I have now, I would have been way more successful. But like I said, that was never my goal. It’s still not my goal. My goal is music and art first. I probably won’t be recognized for anything awesome until I’m dead and gone, but it’s okay. I have other means to pay the bills and I have a great wife who supports me.
Biohazard is kind of like a vibe thing. It’s like when the planets align and shit lines up, we do it. There’s been different crazy twists and turns of our history, and I would imagine there will be in the future, but that’s life. The pandemic was the fucking craziest curveball anyone ever thought would come, you know?”
