Whitechapel interview with Phil Bozeman
Knoxville’s deathcore deviants, Whitechapel have taken time off from the prep of their fifth studio album to destroy American cities alongside GWAR. The quartet recently completed a successful European tour which included an outstanding performance at Bloodstock. This week, Metalholic sat down with frontman, Phil Bozeman to talk about the current tour, the upcoming album, vaping, breast cancer awareness, and the potential for a covers EP.
The heavy hitting sextet has been on the road virtually nonstop since dropping their 2012 self-titled record and doing their second turn with Rockstar Energy’s Mayhem Festival tour. The album, engineered and mixed by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Battlecross, DevilDriver), debuted at #47 on the Billboard 200 and was the first to feature new drummer Ben Harclerode.
Bozeman and Harclerode are joined by bassist Gabe Crisp and guitarists Zach Householder, Ben Savage and Alex Wade. Earlier this year the band released a 9-minute tour documentary recorded during their spring tour with Asking Alexandria.
Whitechapel‘s fifth album should be released next spring, and Bozeman calls it the band’s darkest to date. Householder stated the goal is to make it the band’s most aggressive record. Hear everything Bozeman had to say about the new record in our interview below and find out which television show he’d like to appear on..
