Ep.219: Thomas Barnett of Strike Anywhere

Keith sits down with Thomas Barnett to discuss his early days in the Richmond Virginia scene, early musical influences and events that shaped his political beliefs, the political landscape in America, the making of Strike Anywhere's latest EP "Nightmares of the West", band dynamics, performing at Over the James Fest with Avail and Snapcase, stories from the road and the 2010 van breakdown that resulted in the band scaling back and the members heading in different directions. We also discuss the law work Thomas does helping fight racial discrimination, workplace harassment and pharmaceutical industry misdeeds, the incredible story of how multiple drummers stepped up to help Strike Anywhere complete a European tour after their drummer Eric was injured, what's next for the band and more.
