Jo Schüftan of Horns Up Rocks! conducted an interview with bassist Byron Stroud of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada metallers 3 INCHES OF BLOOD before the band's March 21 concert at the Gramercy Theater in New York City. You can now watch the chat below.
When asked what the reason was for his recent departure from FEAR FACTORY, Byron said, "It was just time to leave, man. The way I put it to everybody is that life's too short to spend it with people that don't love and respect you."
3 INCHES OF BLOOD' new album, "Long Live Heavy Metal", was released on March 27 via Century Media Records. According to a press release, "fans can expect a blast of pure metal assured to leave no face unmelted."
For "Long Live Heavy Metal", 3 INCHES OF BLOOD reunited with producer and engineer Terry "Sho" Murray (CITY OF FIRE, EXHIBITIONISTS), who worked with the band on their seven-inch single, "Anthems For The Victorious".
3 INCHES OF BLOOD teamed up with Kim Thiessen to perfect their artistic vision for the album, which was released as a digipack and when opened, lays out similar to that of a book.
3 INCHES OF BLOOD is currently taking part in the "Metal Alliance Tour 2012" alongside DEVILDRIVER, THE FACELESS, DYING FETUS, JOB FOR A COWBOY, IMPENDING DOOM and WRETCHED.
