During the latest episode of Mars Attacks Podcast we interview Joey Duenas of Anew Revolution, and Darroh Sudderth from Fair To Midland. Joey discusses Anew Revolutions current tour with Drowing Pool, past touring experiences, and what the band has been up to since my previous interview with their bass player Frank Salvaggio. With Darroh we discuss Fair To Midlands upcoming album Arrows And Anchors, the struggles the band has faced along the way, and how that has helped the band solidify the band, and with the aforementioned emotionally charged new album.
During the episode you will hear tracks by Anew Revolution, Fair To Midland, Queen, and Queens of the Stone Age.
During this episode we bring you two interviews, one with Chris Howorth from In This Moment, and another with Patrick Kennison from Heaven Below. During Chris’ portion we discuss the making of In This Moment’s latest album Star Crossed Wasteland, what it has been like to tour with the likes of Ozzy, Dave Mustaine, being part of Talking Metal on Fuse, and his feelings towards Maria Brink’s involvement with such things as the Hottest Chicks In Metal, and what affect, if any, it has on the band. During Patrick’s interview portion we discuss his former band Union Underground, what it was like to put Heaven Below together, working with Ben Moody, and some misconceptions people may have about artists whose songs are frequently used on TV.
During the episode you’ll hear the following songs in this order:
Heaven Below – Heartbreaker
Union Underground – Across The Nation

During episode 11 we interview Frank Salvaggio from Anew Revolution and Robbie Crane from Ratt. Both are very stand up guys, very easy to talk to, and furthers my belief of having just a normal conversation with artists as opposed to doing a “Kent Brockman” type interview (sorry I say Trent during the episode).
In any event, we touch on the following items during the interviews, from Frank’s side his past in Slaves On Dope, putting Anew Revolution together, song writing, gear, etc. With Robbie we talk about Juan Croucier, Vince Neil, being in the band for roughly 15 years, Infestation, the drama surrounding the band, etc.
During the episode you will hear parts of the following songs:
Anew Revolution’s “Head Against The Wall” & “Ashes From Stone” both come off of the bands recently released iMerica Ratt’s “Eat Me Up Alive”, “Best Of Me” & “A Little Too Much” all off of their latest release Infestation
