Eyehategod Frontman Mike IX Speaks On New Music, Thirtieth Anniversary And Touring With Black Label Society

Eyehategod are a band which sums up the phrase "a law unto themselves" if ever there was one. Throughout their thirty year history, the group has fought through addiction, financial difficulties and even the death of drummer Joey LaCaze in August 2013. At their recent show in Bristol (see review here,) I sat down with frontman Mike IX to discuss how one survives such a turbulent career, when we can expect new music and recent tours with Black Label Society. Check it out below.

On new material:
"We've demoed some new songs and we're probably going to record in September. We need to write some more songs. So far we've demoed seven or eight songs but without vocals, just the music and we'll see what we like, what we'll change and what we'll throw away."
