A year-to-the-day after THANK YOU DRIVER's release of 'They Taught Us How To Read In Nam' (and just over four months since 'Nothing You Do Can Stop This'), I present to you a podcast with bassist/back-up vocalist Hayden Peeling. He took the ferry over from Surrey to do this podcast, see the Mares Of Thrace show (linked here) after we hit it off at their 2022 release show (linked here). We discussed many things including their next show (March 4th linked here) as well as: being born in the wrong generation, loving La Dispute, cover bands and the beginning of THANK YOU DRIVER, member ultimatums and drummer switches, the stupidest thing Hayden did as a teenager (starring Michael J. Fox), shifting from emotional hardcore to chaotic hardcore/mathcore, moving into math class, fry screaming and vocal change-ups, Thank You Driver's name origin story, newer vs. throwback metalcore, love for Mathcore Index, Hey Allen give me more Miriam, doing covers are fun, favourite/upcoming shows, local shout-outs, pingy snares, favourite 2023 releases thus far, etc. Bands played in this podcast: A Mourning Star, A Needle Under The Nail, Kokeshi, Long.Way.Down., Poison The Well, and Stasis. Listen to podcast #110 which is available to stream and/or download for free via this link.
