December 11, 2012, 5 years ago
Former vocalist of HAIL THE VILLAIN Bryan Crouch, who left the band last year after blowing out his voice, recently returned to the music scene with SIX SIDE DIE. He recently spoke with Emurg.com about his return. An excerpt from the interview is available below:
Q: Since departing with Hail The Villain, you have faced many obstacles with nearly losing your voice, and finding your way on your own with a new project. Can you describe to us what you experienced in that time and what you have learned up to this point in time as an artist?
BC: "Great question! I don’t think I have ever experienced a time that I felt my world was crumbling down like when Hail The Villain fell apart. My voice was completely trashed, I was poor as fuck, my band accused me of lying about my injury and refused to wait until I got well to play shows again. So I learned to stand up for what I believe. That life goes on regardless of having to make altering decisions. As a musician, I got back to writing and surrounding myself with like minded people."
Q: Where did you get the inspiration to create Six Side Die? What made you decide to move forward as a solo artist?
BC: "I never planned on being a solo artist. That’s not my thing. I knew after a few months that my voice was going to heal and that made me inspired to keep going. If I was going to do it, I was going to need a band and luckily it was easy to find the right guys to make it with."
Q: How does Six Side Die differ from anything else you have done? Are you the main composer and writer for all the material created? Are there certain subject matters or influences that help you create such dynamic songs?
BC: "Six Side Die is different because it’s free from egos and politics. We have no restrictions but we do have expectations that I think we leaned from the EP. Fans like fast, heavy, and deep lyrical content. We are a social media band that cares about everything our fans suggest. We are not a business that cares about money or how big our dicks are. There is freedom to be great at anything when you do it for the love and only the love."
