What is the "American Dream" these days? The band Hatebreed tackled that subject in their song "A.D." off of their latest album "Concrete Confessional". A univocal message that raises the anxiety of now-a-days. There's a certain aspect that has you even scared to go out of the house at times. Drummer Matt Byrne joins the DOMKcast on episode 79. In town not too long ago with GWAR at the Cain's Ballroom. Matt has enjoyed his time with them on the road. Matt was the fill-in drummer for Late Night with Seth Myers. What was it like being apart of a structured talkshow and how does it differ from performing onstage with Hatebreed? Matt admitted it was an adjustment watching for his cues. What are some Do's and Don'ts to follow if you want to be a successful band? Matt highlighted some of things that he tries to abide by. One for anybody to follow would be to keep your partying in check. Obviously that's something that can not only destroy your career but your life as well.What does Matt do in his downtime? He enjoys time at his house in upstate New York. Hiking and seclusion are on the list of musts during this time. The exact opposite of life on the road. The band has a reputation for touring relentlessly over the years. It's great to get a break but nothing replaces the feeling of performing live in-front of a crowd. The latest album from Hatebreed is "Concrete Confessional" released back in 2016. Worth the listen. Hear the full conversation with Matt Byrne of Hatebreed on episode 79 of the DOMKcast. #DOMKRocks
