EPISODE #93: TATIANA DEMARIA / ROB DAMIANI (FROM WARPED TOUR 2018 DETROIT) – IN THIS EPISODE:
This is the first of three episodes with interviews recorded from the Detroit stop of the Van’s Warped Tour. We have a double header with first, an interview with the London-based singer/songwriter Tatiana DeMaria (of the band TAT), and then we get to Rob Damiani, lead singer of the British rock band Don Broco.
Tatiana DeMaria is currently rolling out her own solo material, so we talk about her decision to release music outside of her band TAT, growing up making music, along with the influence that London has on her music, having fun with music, talking with her fans, being a role model, her experience on Warped Tour, and much more.
Don Broco is currently touring off the release of their latest album Technology, an album that showed great growth from the band. In talking with Rob Damiani, we discuss how the band balances humor with serious subject manner, being on Warped Tour, the roll out of their new album Technology, and the beginnings of Don Broco.
The episode’s pick is the new album For The Cause from New York hardcore pioneers Madball. Beginning in the late 1980s, originally consisting of members of Agnostic Front with Freddy Cricien on vocals, who was the younger half-brother of Agnostic Front’s front man Roger Miret, Madball has been a staple of the history of New York hardcore. For The Cause shows that when you’re born in hardcore, hardcore really never dies!
