John Connolly of Sevendust Interview & Live Show Review

On April 15, 2014 Sevendust released their latest studio effort, titled Time Travelers & Bonfires. This acoustic offering blends the Sevendust history with a twist of stripped down acoustic instruments.

John Connolly marks the 4th Sevendust member we’ve had on our show and just like his fellow bandmates, he was a terrific guest and exemplified everything we appreciate about these guys.

I feel very good about Eye Empire. With this new record and their burgeoning reputation as one of the best live bands in metal, I’m expecting a huge 2014 for the band. Absolutely huge.

Jon Siebels – Guitarist and Founding Member of Eve 6 Interview

We encourage all our listeners to check out this interview, and more important, get out to an Eve 6 show. “Oh, aren’t they that ‘Inside Out’ band?” Or, “Didn’t they play that ‘Here’s to the Night’ song?” Forget that. Their live show will make you forget those songs even exist. It doesn’t get much more infectious than Eve 6. Masterful live.

Interview with Soul Asylum mainman Dave Pirner

I remember purchasing Let Your Dim Light Shine in the mid-90′s. By then, they weren’t cool anymore. Bush was dominating the airwaves. Korn was popularizing nu-metal. Maybe “Misery” was a little silly. Maybe it was too much too fast. Still, somehow, Dave Pirner, through his goofy lyrics and odd demeanor managed to find a place in my musical heart. Their latest album, Delayed Reaction was released in 2012. Inside, you’ll find some commentary and an interview we did with Dave before Soul Asylum’s fall 2013 co-headlining run with Fountains of Wayne.

Interview with Sponge singer Vinnie Dombroski

Almost 20 years after Rotting Pinata went gold, Sponge frontman Vinnie Dombroski sat down with All Knowing Force to discuss their seventh and latest studio album, Stop the Bleeding. After seeing them twice this past summer: once opening the 2013 Summerland Tour, and once headlining in Boston, I can safely reiterate something I’ve believed all along: this is one of the most criminally underrated rock bands in history. Enjoy the interview.

Jacob Bunton of Adler Interview

“I like being surprised. I also don’t like knowing the path an interview will travel. That journey makes for a more enjoyable, spontaneous listening experience. Color me impressed with Jacob Bunton. The man is articulate, genuinely optimistic and passionate about music, and… let’s put it like this – he’s the type of guy you could sit and talk music with for days. Back From the Dead, the debut album from Adler is a truly enjoyable listening experience.”

By the time you’re done reading this post, you’re going to think I need a hug. You might even think I need an intervention. I assure you I’m not depressed. If you guys want to go in the direction of melancholia, I can certainly take you there. Perhaps in the next one.

Failure – Hot off their show in Los Angeles at the El Rey – a Quick Story

A few weeks back, I’m talking to Darius and he says to me, “Dude, Failure is doing an L.A. show.” It shortly turned into, “Dude, Failure is playing the El Rey.” Then, “Dude, Failure sold out the El Rey in minutes.” Last night was Failure’s first show in a decade and a half, so everything came full circle. Now, this band who was mentioned to us, almost in passing, at the end of an All Knowing Force interview, has taken music center stage in both our lives.

Motley Crue: Final Tour Announced

“Like their music or not, they brought it for 30+ years. They always did it their way, and now, they’re going out on top. Motley was one of my first loves, and when I look back on it, seeing Dr. Feelgood on MTV was likely my gateway into exploring heavier music. What a ride it was, and I have nothing but love, respect, and admiration for their career.”

Interview with Buckcherry Guitarist Keith Nelson

This interview has never appeared on our new site. It was conducted back in 2006, right at the time 15 was exploding. Unfortunately, they’ve not been able to duplicate the success of 15 on their last three albums. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the band live numerous times, in venues such as the Middle East in Cambridge, MA, the Webster in Hartford, Webster Hall, and Irving Plaza. In a live setting, they’re excellent, but with the quality of the last three albums, I’m not really looking forward to what comes next.

Interview with Surrender The Fall vocalist Jared Cole

It’s not everyday a band comes around that piques my interest. Memphis rockers Surrender The Fall don’t reinvent the wheel, but they exude unrivaled passion and honesty on their first LP “Burn In The Spotlight.” I want you all to take a listen to this interview and give them a few minutes of your time.

Interview with Tom Keifer (frontman of Cinderella)

Cinderella isn’t as well known as some of their 80′s contemporaries, but they definitely are some of the most respected. While bands like Poison and Faster Pussycat reveled in simplicity, Cinderella’s songwriting possessed a maturity foreign to the rest of the genre. With his 2013 solo record, , Tom Keifer has released an album that make the 80′s seem like a distant memory.

A synopsis of my journey to becoming a Bruce Springsteen fan.

I decided to write this after listening to Nebraska in its entirety on a recent road trip. It’s not the happiest of albums, and there was a time when I couldn’t get through a minute of it. Now, here I am, showing my appreciation for The Boss…for all to see.

Otep is absolutely fearless and unafraid to share and defend her views. Otep has a new record titled Hydra. As of now, it will be the final Otep release.This isn’t your typical All Knowing Force spot and we’re thrilled to share it with you.

Chris Wyse of Owl and The Cult Interview

The Right Thing, the second full-length Owl album will be released on April 9th, 2013. This record truly lives in the moment. It’s very primal, organic, competent rock music played with conviction. The Right Thing opens with a cover of The Kinks track “Destroyer.” An album opening with a cover – daring and unconventional, to say the least. As far as I’m concerned, this is rock and roll, the way it should be – not an overthought collection of songs that all sound identical.

Lajon Witherspoon of Sevendust Interview

We at All Knowing Force are thrilled to have spoken with arguably the greatest heavy metal frontman of our generation in Lajon Witherspoon of Sevendust. Lajon, or LJ as he likes to be called, really needs no introduction. He’s a dominating presence on stage, fronting a massively respected band that is about to release their ninth studio album, Black Out The Sun, on March 26th.
