5 Minutes with Alexis and Seth at Mayhem Festival 2011
As soon as I arrived at Rockstar Energy’s 2011 Mayhem Festival in Boise, I sought out Straight Line Stitch bassist Jason White, so I could say a quick hello before the show. The band’s new album, The Fight of Our Lives is proving to be the band’s breakout release, with hordes of new fans joining the fray with every performance.
This marks their first foray on the Mayhem circuit, and while they are leading off the Extreme (Revolver) Stage, they have the talent and music to be headlining the stage. But modest as they are, they will tell you, and mean it, that they are just happy to be there at all, earning their stripes and hard fought fans.
While I was not intending to do an interview this time around having just sat down with Lexi and Jason a couple of months ago, I couldn’t resist grabbing a quick five minutes with Alexis and Seth before they hit the stage.
Drummer Kanky Lora will pull double duty on the Mayhem tour this year, filling in behind the kit for Kingdom of Sorrow on select dates this summer.
