From CHVRCHES to Possessed

Also this week:

Arrow de Wilde of cover stars Starcrawler told us that, ““You can’t really pigeonhole our music. We can play with My Chem, Jack White, we just played with Nick Cave, and then I think we could play with Insane Clown Posse. Who knows? We’re all over the board. I think any type of music, not even just rock. I think it would be cool to play with rap artists and stuff. There’s something about our music. There are people who come to our shows who have told me they don’t usually listen to rock, but they like us. Which is cool, and very interesting to me.”

“It’s been so many years since we recorded that and, also, we have new members with us,” said guitarist Henri Cash. “My brother [Bill Cash] joined us at the beginning of quarantine and so did our new drummer Seth [Carolina]. We were just playing together a lot during quarantine, just really getting super tight. It was the natural progression of the music that we were making when we were playing together.”

In “Not Another DJ,” DJ Livia said that, “You guys are the first to know I will be dropping my single out soon. I am also a singer/rapper [so] stay tuned on all my social channels for more info on drop dates.”
