SIX FEET UNDER's Chris Barnes Talks About 'UNDEAD' & How Cannabis Aids His Musical Power!
Recently, we had the chance to chat with Death Metal screamer/legend Chris Barnes from the mighty SIX FEET UNDER about the band's forthcoming NEW full-length, 'Undead'. With an updated lineup featuring Barnes alongside guitarist Rob Arnold (ex- Chimaira), longtime guitarist Steve Swanson (ex-Massacre), bassist Jeff Hughell (ex-Brain Drill, ex-Vile), and drummer Kevin Talley (Dying Fetus, Misery Index, Chimaira), 'Undead' finds the band revitalized and spewing forth some of their most uncompromising, provocative and plainly scathing tunes of their career. 'Undead' was produced by Mark Lewis (Deicide, Devildriver), mixed by Jason Suecof (Whitechapel, Job For A Cowboy), at Audio Hammer Studios in Sanford, Florida and is scheduled for North American release on May 22, 2012 through Metal Blade Records.
During the conversation, we chatted with Chris about how Cannabis aids his musical power and about all the touring plans that are on already scripted on the SIX FEET UNDER agenda. So grab your smoke, lay back, crank it up, and check out our interview with Chris Barnes from SIX FEET UNDER!!!
In conjunction with the release of 'Undead', SIX FEET UNDER will demolish the masses on a near three-week run of live rituals this June. Dubbed the "18 Nights Of Blood Tour", the journey will begin in Atlanta, Georgia on June 8. Support will be provided by Dying Fetus and Revocation. Comments Barnes: "We want to get out there and pretty much destroy. We want to play to as many people as possible, and show all of the fans out there the new songs, and leave nothing but a trail of blood in our wake. We're hoping that whoever makes body bags are upping their output, because after this record comes out there'll be a lot of decomposing bodies out there!
