Listen to our hilarious chat with New Bedford’s melodic hardcore legends, recorded at KNRD Fest 2018.
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.

We also play a sterling selection of fast-punk tunes:

Listen to our live (and drunk!) podcast with After The Fall, The Human Project, Forever Unclean and The Affect Heuristic!
We are excited to share our latest podcast featuring chats with not one but four bands! We chatted literal shit with After The Fall, The Human Project, Forever Unclean and The Affect Heuristic!
KNRD Fest (pronounced ‘conrad’) is a magical skate/melodic punk adventure in the Bavarian woodlands, taking place near Nuremberg, Germany. It’s a wonderful weekend of bands, banter and excessive boozing that we’ve attempted to capture in audio form for you!
We’ve also aimed to answer some essential questions for you, including:
- How much do you remember from last night?
- Whose anus is a “literally like an ex-soviet airbase’s windsock”?
- Why should you always check the pockets of a pair of pooed-pants?
- What event nearly killed After The Fall?
- How do Forever Unclean turn all bad times into good times?
- What do Sean Arnold’s nipples taste like?
- Who won’t ‘doink’ with The Affect Heuristic?
- Who’s the most socially flamboyant person at KNRD Fest?
- And of course, what’s your personal worst tour story?
We recorded four segments across the Saturday of KNRD Fest and, as they progress, you can also enjoy hearing Sarah and her guests getting progressively more drunk!
We also play a track from each band:
- The Human Project – The Rhetoric
- After The Fall – Patroon Island
- Forever Unclean – Weird
- The Affect Heuristic – Vessel
