Murder By Death

Posted Oct. 13, 2014, 4:08 p.m.

It's a little while after soundcheck and I've lined up shots of Jameson along the corner of the bar. I motion towards the drinks as Adam Turla walks over, but he smiles and shakes his head. "It's the fourth shot I've had to turn down tonight!" he says laughing. We leave the shots and Adam and I walk backstage to chat. This is the third time I've interviewed Murder by Death. I began seeing the group late in my high school career, and since that time I've racked up a number of their of concerts due to the band's previously hectic tour schedule. Adam has always been friendly and generous with his time ...

Blacklisted

Posted Oct. 16, 2010, 11:11 a.m.

Blacklisted is a name that has become synonymous with present day hardcore. Don't let this association lead you to the belief that Blacklisted is just another hardcore band going through the motions. The band's willingness to experiment with different sounds and vocalist George Hirsch's personal lyrical revelations has put the band in a class all their own. Scene Point Blank recently corresponded with Hirsch about the band's almost breakup, where the band draws inspiration from, and the band's latest long-player, Heavier than Heaven, Lonelier than God. Scene Point Blank: Start with the basics. Tell us ...
