Ex-MEGADETH Guitarist CHRIS BRODERICK On DAVE MUSTAINE: He 'Knows What He Wants, And He's Very Decisive'
On October 9, Argentinean rock journalist Lucas H. Gordon conducted an interview with former MEGADETH guitarist Chris Broderick at T.J. Martell Foundation's Rock 'N' Bowl tournament at the PINZ Bowling Center in Studio City, California. You can now watch the chat below. (Note: The interview was conducted roughly six weeks before Broderick and drummer Shawn Drover announced their departures from MEGADETH.) Asked how he would describe Dave Mustaine to those fans who have never had a chance to meet the MEGADETH mainman, Broderick said: "I think, in a way, all of the fans have met him through his music. You hear his personality in the way he plays and the way he writes. So it's almost like through listening [to MEGADETH's music], you do know Dave Mustaine." Pressed to describe Mustaine in his own words, Broderick said: "I think he's a man who knows what he wants, and he's very decisive and he wants to get the music across with his vision, and he makes it happen." Only hours after Drover announced his exit from MEGADETH on November 25 to "to pursue [his] own musical interests," Broderick revealed he also quit the legendary metal band, saying that he was leaving the group "due to artistic and musical differences." Broderick joined MEGADETH in late 2007 as the replacement for Glen Drover, who left the group in order to focus on family life. Chris has been playing guitar since he was eleven years old and had been teaching for 15 years prior to joining MEGADETH. Styles range from classical, rock, blues, and jazz. He started taking lessons at 14 years of age studying guitar as well as voice, violin, and piano. Chris has a degree in classical guitar music performance at the University of Denver and the Lamont School of Music. He has performed in many master classes including ones given by David Russell, Benjamin Verdery, and his primary instructor, Ricardo Iznaola. In addition, Chris has taken classes such as jazz improvisation, chord voicing, advanced music theory, and sight-reading.
THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA: 'War' Video Released, 'Zombie 5 Tour' Announced
"War", the new video from metal titans THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, can be seen below. The clip was helmed by director Maria Juranic, who also worked on the band's clip for "First Sight". The track is taken from the band's fifth studio album, "8:18", which sold around 16,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 20 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on September 17, 2013 via Roadrunner. THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA has announced details of a spring headline tour, dubbed the "Zombie 5 Tour", presented by Rockstar Energy Drink. The trek — which will see THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA playing the "Zombie" EP in its entirety each night along with other fan favorites — will feature support from BORN OF OSIRIS, THE WORD ALIVE and SECRETS. The coast-to-coast trek gets underway March 15 in Nashville, Tennessee at Rocketown and continues through April 16, wrapping up at the House of Blues in Chicago, Illinois. Tickets for all dates will be on sale Friday, December 19. Frontman Mike Hranica commented, "When we started discussing the idea of playing the 'Zombie' EP front to back, it was clear and evident that the five year anniversary would be the perfect time to commemorate. "I love seeing old records and releases performed and celebrated years after their release, and with that I know how excited we are to announce the 'Zombie 5 Tour'." Following the U.S. tour, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA will gear up for a performance at Rock On The Range in Columbus, Ohio. Long acclaimed as among one of the most potent and provocative bands in modern American metal, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA made a massive leap forward with "8:18". The album — executive-produced by KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's Adam Dutkiewicz and produced by the band along with producer/engineer Matt Goldman (UNDEROATH, THE CHARIOT) — sees the group driving its relentless sonic approach with more might than ever before, giving extreme power to vocalist Mike Hranica's grim, emotional lyricism. In a January 2014 interview with Loudwire, Hranica stated about the lyrical inspiration for "8:18": "I don't think it's too much of a departure from what I've been drawn to as far as darker stuff — more misery and depression. I've always felt an immediate draw to that and I know that within our music, misery has the strongest impact compared to something brighter and warmer. I just wanted to hone in on that and use the same tools within the stuff that I do. Within the things that I read and what not I'm very drawn to mediocrity, monotony and just ordinariness — it's just all of those things that has been a part of my writing and taste in general. With '8:18', it's built off of suffering and looking at suffering from all different perspectives."
