He Is Legend Uncages The "White Bat"

A lot can happen in fifteen years. It was in 2004 that Wilmington, North Carolina rockers He Is Legend released their debut full length, "I Am Hollywood" and since then the band has evolved into a sound of their own, shedding their metalcore skin and finding favour with fans of southern rock, stoner metal and even blues music. After a year's hiatus in 2009, the group returned focused and energised, releasing the albums, "Heavy Fruit" in 2014 and "few" in 2017, with a new album, "White Bat" scheduled to hit the shelves on June.

Whilst on tour with The Damned Things and Crobot, I had the pleasure of speaking to He Is Legend frontman Schuylar Croom about the forthcoming new album, "White Bat," the literary and philosophical themes behind the record and the anniversary of their debut album, "I Am Hollywood."

Diamond Oz: You're on tour right now with The Damned Things and Crobot, how's it going so far?

Schuylar Croom: It's been a fantastic tour. We're really getting along well with everybody and we're touring with some powerhouse names. It's been a really interesting tour. It's a joy to see these legendary musicians every night.

Oz: Absolutely. How did this grouping come together?

Schuylar: I've been friends with Keith Buckley for quite a while. So, we've got a record coming out at the end of June and I told him about it and he was like, "Perfect. Let's get it on!" so we just kind of made it work that way. So it was pretty organic. It's a really good, solid rock tour with a great lineup. It's almost over now, we've only got a few more days.
