The latest Shout Louder podcast features none other than Nuno Pereira and Trevor Reilly from melodic hardcore legends A Wilhelm Scream!
Sarah caught up with the vocalist and guitarist at KNRD Fest, in the beautiful Bavarian woods. We shared a drink and talked a bit about the magic of the music festival, the charm of sweaty club shows and some of the staggering things that have happened to the band on tour over the years.
Hailing from New Bedford, Massechusets, A Wilhelm Scream are one of the most influential bands in modern melodic hardcore punk. Since 1999 they’ve been turning out high-octane, aggressive punk anthems, releasing some of the best albums of the last 20 years, proppelled by unrivalled live shows. We’re glad we were able to catch them and we hope you enjoy listening to the episode as much as we enjoyed recording it.
Apologies in advance for the phone noise in the second segment – if it’s really bugging you then skip on past it to part three.
