Pennsylvania metallers This or the Apocalypse have been touring hard in support of their latest album Dead Years, and one of their recent shows in San Jose, Calif., was released online in full via Contorted Records.
Watch the show below.
In addition, This or the Apoocalypse has been raising funds for a new van via an Indiegogo campaign after their previous one caught on fire earlier this year. The band is offering several exclusive reward packages at each level of donation.
U.K’.s Guitarist magazine video demo with Guthrie Govan on his Charvel prototype guitar already has more than 17,000 views.
The new prototype has custom pickups in an H/S/H configuration made by Michael Frank-Braun, who designed the pickups on Eric Johnson’s Fender signature Stratocaster.
“I just told him I want a certain kind of honesty in the pickups,” Govan told Guitarist. “I want them to reflect all the different ways you can hit a note, which is the opposite of the flattering pickup. I want the pickup to hear every subtlety, even if it’s a mistake, and also transmit the natural sound of the wood. They’re not ultra-high output.”
Enjoy the clip and stay tuned for the April issue of Guitarist for more details about this prototype.
