Peter Dolving is the man. “It’s refreshing to talk to someone with an opinion.”

Peter joined us from the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, which is held annually at The Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts. We truly enjoyed conducting this interview. I’m unsure if I’m sold on having babies, but I think Peter was a pretty good salesman. Peter joined us to promote their April 19th stop at B.B. King’s in New York City.

I’d never spoken to or corresponded with Peter Dolving prior to this spot. We had planned to go no more than 10 minutes, but he gaves us nearly 30. I had nothing but a positive experience with Century Media, Dolving, and the band’s tour manager, Melissa King.

The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival was a stop on their current tour with Merauder and The Agonist.

    I hate shows on Sunday nights but will be making it out for this one at BB’s although it’s the worst club in the city for shows.

    I really enjoyed this interview. I don’t dig the band but Dolving isn’t a boring guest by any means.

    It seems this has struck a chord with Blabbermouth commenters. Most of them lead sad lives – the ones that hate everything.
