On this episode Brian is joined by Alex Raser from Alborn.

Formed in 2016, Northern Illinois based alternative metal band Alborn consists of Justin Taylor [guitar/lead vocals], Alex Raser [Drums/vocals], Zame Lewis [bass] and Nate Guske [guitar/vocals]. Their sound has been compared to Deftones or a heavier version of Alice in Chains. But, make no mistake, Alborn has created something unique, hard and melodic.

On 24th Febreuary Alborn released the EP "Push" via Pavement Entertainment. Push features four songs. The first three were produced by Chris Collier and James “Fluff” Harley Harley of CMC21 Productions, who have worked with Korn, and the fourth song was produced by Morgan Rose and Jose Urquiza. Lead singer and guitarist Justin Taylor says, “The pandemic showed us that time is too precious to play it safe, or write what we think people want to hear. On this EP, we've represented who we are, what we stand for, and why we stand for it. For that, we are prouder than we've ever been with the outcome.”

Alborn are currently on the road for 18 days providing direct support to Powerman 5000.
