Godla commented:

“By keeping the set times between 5 and 15 minutes for each artist, it allows me to not only keep things moving, but mix it up in ways that conventional festivals simply can’t. Every single hour will contain big names and emerging artists right next to each other.

I’m trying to look at the bright side of our current situation, and not only make this an entertaining way to see the artists you love flex their creativity in new ways, but hope this event acts as a place of discovery for every viewer out there.

Finding a band or artist to fall in love with is the mark of a great festival to me, and it’s my honor to share the work of these amazing individuals I curated because I’m passionate about them. I’ve been in touch with all of them every step of the way, and some even managed to throw me a few surprises.

I’m honored and humbled to have all of them part of this, they truly went above and beyond to showcase their craft for the Slay At Home fest, and I can’t wait for the world to see something really special come to life this weekend.”

Money raised from the event will benefit MusiCares and Global Giving.

Obviously people’s safety is the main concern for us but we wanted to get these dates out there as it’s been eating away at us for a while now and we hope that having something to look forward to will bring a tiny bit of hope and happiness into everyone’s lives right now.”

Corrosion Of Conformity Postpone European/UK Tour With Spirit Adrift

Corrosion Of Conformity have postponed their European/UK tour with Spirit Adrift due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band commented:

“Given the global situation due to the Coronavirus, we have no choice but to postpone our upcoming Euro dates until spring 2021. Very sorry but the health and safety of everyone is the most important factor right now we look forward to seeing you all – Corrosion of Conformity“

Spirit Adrift Sign With Century Media Records

Spirit Adrift have signed a new deal with Century Media Records. This news follows the group’s recent lineup change.

The band commented:

“We’re thrilled about our new partnership with Century Media. Everyone we’ve dealt with at the label has been a pleasure to work with right out of the gate. We already feel a strong sense of mutual respect, and it’s clear the label and the band share a united vision for the future.

2020 will be a transformative period for Spirit Adrift, and Century Media is the perfect new partner to spread our music to as many people as possible. We say it every time, but we mean it every time: our new material is our strongest to date. The songs we’ve been working on encapsulate each era of the band, while experimenting even further with the limits of what we can achieve.

As always, we are pushing ourselves to explore fresh ideas without abandoning our identity. As always, we are pushing the limits of our playing abilities. And as always, you can expect the unexpected. Thank you all for the continued support, and we’ll see you soon.”

Gatecreeper & Spirit Adrift Announce Lineup Changes

Gatecreeper and Spirit Adrift have undergone some lineup changes and will no longer be sharing members. Eric Wagner and Chase Mason have both exited Spirit Adrift to focus on Gatecreeper, while Nate Garrett has exited Gatecreeper to focus on Spirit Adrift.

Garrett told Metal Injection the following:

“2020 we’re splitting the band up. This is the year that we finally had to do it. Eric and Chase are going to continue on with Gatecreeper and then Marcus and I are doing Spirit Adrift. Gatecreeper has got a new live guitar player and we’ve got a new live bass player and guitar player.

Eric and Chase write the Gatecreeper stuff and they started that band. I write all the Spirit Adrift stuff and I started that band. It just kind of went without saying. We just reached a point of diminishing returns. For awhile it was cool and it was working, but I think we reached a point where both bands were suffering by sharing the members. We’re gonna be two separate entities moving forward.

I don’t know if I’m far enough away from it to really have a lot of perspective on it. I’m glad I got to play on that record and I’m glad I got to do that last tour. We handled everything the right way.

A few of us had been talking about splitting up the bands for a really long time and then we just had an adult conversation about it, and everybody handled it really well. That last Gatecreeper tour was awesome. Exhumed, Netcrot, Judicary, all of those dudes are really, really cool. I got a lot out of that tour, so I’m glad to have gone out on top in that band.”

Head to Metal Injection to read more from Garrett, who also talked about Spirit Adrift’s “Chained To Oblivion” reissue (out March 27) and the band’s upcoming album.
