SETON HALL UNIVERSITY Rock WSOU (89.5 PIRATE RADIO)/SOUTH ORANGE, NJ, will be airing special on-air features in the coming weeks to celebrate two monstrous events in the metal world featuring MEGADETH and KILLSWITCH ENGAGE.
To mark MEGADETH’s two shows at NEW YORK CITY’s TERMINAL 5, WSOU will air a series of interview excerpts beginning MONDAY, MARCH 7th and continuing daily until the second show on THURSDAY, MARCH 17th. The band’s first NYC show is the day prior on WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16th.
WSOU interviewed all members of the band: guitarist and vocalist DAVE MUSTAINE, guitarist KIKO LOUREIRO, bassist DAVE ELLEFSON and drummer CHRIS ADLER. Among the interview highlights was when MUSTAINE quoted the "Rocky" series: “It doesn’t matter how hard you can get hit, it is how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.” In addition to being aired, the interviews will appear on WSOU.net starting MARCH 7th.
The interviews were conducted by WSOU MD ROHIT RAVI and APD HOLLY FITZPATRICK. “To conduct these interviews with metal heroes like MEGADETH was a very humbling experience, and it will really provide a unique experience for our listeners,” said RAVI.
WSOU listeners will also be treated to insights from KILLSWITCH ENGAGE frontman JESSE LEACH about the band’s new album, “Incarnate.” These exclusive features will begin on the album release date, MARCH 11th, and will continue for a week until MARCH 18th in conjunction with the band’s takeover of NEW YORK CITY, which is being presented by WSOU (NET NEWS 2/14).
“As part of KILLSWITCH ENGAGE’s NYC takeover, we wanted to give our listeners a unique experience,” said WSOU PD MOLLY MELLER. “To have JESSE LEACH speak directly with our listeners and pull back the curtain on the creative process is a real treat for fans and something they can only hear on WSOU.”
