Vendetta Red are back! You may remember their song “Shatterday” which was released in 2003 and gained the band national recognition, reaching number 16 on the Alternative Songs Billboard chart. We had the chance to speak with Zach Davidson about the current state of the band and what’s to come.
TAM: Thanks so much for taking the time to talk to us! Tell us your name and what you do in the band?
ZD: Zach Davidson Founder and C.E.O. Currently spearheading our mergers and acquisitions department (Vendetta Red).
TAM: Is there anything about the new album that will surprise old fans?
ZD: I think they will be surprised by the amount of blistering guitar solos and flying fingers of thrash metal that we are showcasing.
ZD: Yes my expectations are ore focused and enhanced by the things I can personally control and diminished and ignored by the things I cannot. So I choose to try and focus on the things I can change and do my best to ensure positive outcomes in all my endeavors.
TAM: Being back in the studio after all these years must have brought back some great memories. What’s your all-time best studio story?
ZD: If i’m being honest my favorite studio memories don’t have anything to do with the music. I got to hang out with the Queens of the stone age guys and listen to the early mixes of their album era vulgaris before anybody else. That was pretty cool. I got to have sex in the vocal booth while recording sisters of the red death. Trying to get the vibe right you know?
ZD: Well the problem is we aren’t politically correct at all. In the past I have personally been very divisive and antagonistic in order to push my own political views on people. These days I’m much more concerned with showcasing these amazing tunes and letting the other stuff take a back seat for a bit. We’ll see.
