Ray Harkins is the host of The 100 words Or Less podcast that dives deep with creators of independent culture from musicians, artists and other interesting people to find out what inspires them, how they came to be and many other unexpected places.
I tend not to do repeat guests, but I will grant exceptions for certain circumstances and frankly this was one of them. Considering it's been 6 years since I checked in with my friend Brendan Murphy from Counterparts, it was about dang time. We discussed mental focus, expectations and aesthetics behind the band. It was a insightful and reflective chat on how he has changed and where things stand now.
Today we have Ian Fike the vocalist from melodic hardcore band It Prevails on the show. It's an important and honest conversation about his struggles with addiction, how ego plays a role in his life and of course, melodic hardcore and the passionate fanbase that exists for that style of music.

Happy June! Today on the podcast we have the legendary vocalist of metal/hardcore heroes Ringworm, The Human Furnace (aka James Bulloch). We dive deep into why breaking up the band was the best thing they could have done, life as a tattoo artist and of course the Cleveland hardcore scene. Enjoy!

Happy Wednesday and here is another great conversation I get to bring to you, this week with Chris Popadak from Hawthorne Heights and The Story Changes.
