Guitarist Dave "Brownsound" Baksh recently spoke to Canada's MTV about his decision to quit multi-platinum pop-punk act SUM 41 and focus on his "balls-to-the-walls metal" side project BROWN BRIGADE. Watch the interview below.Speaking to Dose.ca of time he decided to leave SUM 41, Baksh said, "Honestly, I really did get really thankless and I still feel like and asshole for it. Because you're up there — and no matter what, no matter who you're dealing with, no matter what country you're in — somebody wants to take something from you. If you really let that get to you and not realize that's what your fucking job is, then it is going to get under your skin and reach down into your soul. But I kind of realized after the period I've had off and just at the end of the time that I had with SUM 41 that you can't really just sit there and feel sorry for yourself...You have to make the best time on this Earth that you can." BROWN BRIGADE, which also features Baksh's cousin, Vaughn Lal, on bass, released its full-length debut, "Record Into the Mouth of Badd(d)ness", on September 18. "It's weird. I've not only wanted to play metal my entire life — I've been playing metal all of my life," Baksh told Dose.ca. "Whenever I was practicing off stage [with SUM 41], it would be to heavy metal."
