WALLS OF JERICHO interview with Candace Kucsulain

by marcs77

I hadn't pre-arranged anything for this interview to happen but being at the Radio Onda D'urto show, where Detroit, MI's long-running hardcore powerhouse WALLS OF JERICHO were going up on stage right before the headliner Biohazard, I bumbed into Candace Kucsulain (WOJ's vocals) and jumped at the chance to ask her if she was up for a chat for an interview feature on And not much of a surprise she was okay to reply a few questions just informing that she unfortunately had a pretty sore throat and wished to spare her voice as much as she could for the show -fully understandable but, however, it speaks volume about the dedication these guys have to their work and fans.
Read on what Candace had to say and be on the look out for the new album and follow-up to 2008's “The American Dream” to come out in 2016 via Napalm records.

LIKE TORCHES announce new album "SHELTER" out january 22nd on Ruderecords

The pop punk resurgence keeps going strong...

LIKE TORCHES have announced the release of their new album "Shelter", due out on Rude Records, the label the foursome recently signed with, on January 22nd 2016.

Singer Jonathan Kärn comments: "A big part of this album was written in a country house far up north in Sweden. With no cell reception, internet or human interactions. This was a great experience for all of us as a group, to connect and strengthen our friendship to a new level. It also helped us find the shape and sound that we wanted for this next album. The vibe of the album is emotional and angry, it's a compilation of everything that we have been through these past years. We have put everything we got into it”.

"Shelter" was produced and recorded by Ryan Key (Yellowcard) at Missing Man Recordings in Stockholm. Like Torches have a long time working relationship with Yellowcard’s own Ryan Key, who has produced both the debut and forthcoming record.
