Frank Fanelli (For The Nomads)

Frank Fanelli (For The Nomads)

A conversation about how For the Nomads came to be, why he chooses not to drink, the soundtrack to his youth, his first shows, how he got into his first band & how you can help.

Throughout this interview Matt was drinking BrewDog & Lamb of God's collab the Non-Alcoholic "Ghost Walker IPA". This was probably the best Non-Alcoholic beer that I have ever drank. It was malty & caramel forward with a smooth hoppy bite. Huge shout out to Randy Blythe who encouraged BrewDog to hook me up with some of these fine brews. It clocked in with a 0.5% ABV.

This is the first "Spotlight on Redefining Darkness Records" episode of four!

Devastation On The Nation 2020 featuring Rotting Christ, Borknagar, Wolfheart, Abigail Williams, and Imperial Triumphant has been postponed due to the effects of the COVID- 19 Virus. But Daniel DeFonce, the Vox&Hops Alumni behind Metal Festival Tours & Continental Touring has already managed to secure tour dates for Devastation on the Nation 2021 featuring the exact same lineup. Devastation on the Nation 2021 with run from February 11th - March 14th 2021. Mad love & respect to Daniel DeFonce for pulling this together so quickly...I am impressed!

The impact of the COVID- 19 Virus on the entertainment industry is monstrous. Some of your favourite artists may be struggling to get by right now & desperately need your help. The best way to do that is by buying their music, merchandise & other goods. I have created a list of all of the Vox&Hops Almuni's Merchandise Pages for you to peruse so that you can support your favourite artists. Trust me they need it...

It is also essential to support our local Craft Beer Breweries now. If you are going to be drinking craft beer during your time in Social Isolation make sure that it is a Local Craft Beer. It would be a shame if we lost some breweries to COVID- 19...Craft Beer or nothing!
