Suicide Star is the hot new band featuring singer Rob Barton, drummer Brian Hamilton, bassist Aki Maris, and guitarist Les Serran. Metal with a modern twist — classic music, new songs, vital lyrics. An album written and recorded during and of this time, but with an eye on the future. A hard rocking, uplifting, heartfelt album aptly titled Isolation.
Deke and I had the pleasure of speaking to Brian and Rob about many topics. Among them:
- The genesis of the band
- The making of the album (remotely)
- The music video for “Mercy”
- The next video
- The meaning of the lyrics
- The future of recording and playing live
- Brian’s history with New Wave
- To solo or not to solo?
- New Storm Force
Check out the band on your favourite streaming services such as Spotify, Amazon, or buy the CD from the band. As revealed in this interview, the CD version has additional content not available to stream. Physical product! Check them out on Facebook.
Big thanks to Rob and Brian for coming on the show with us music nerds, and congratulations on a wicked CD.
Another big thank-you to last Friday’s guest Robert Lawson, who sent me a signed copy of his book Razama-Snaz! The Listener’s Guide to Nazareth. I opened the package near the start of the video.
We hope you enjoyed this show. Deke is off for summer holidays! Thank you Deke for an awesome 2021 season. Check out his new show with T-Bone, “Scotch On the Rocks”, coming this fall.
