Exodus’s Gary Holt recently talked to Full Metal Jackie’s radio show, where he was asked why it’s still important for him and his bandmates to make new music, even after the economics of the music industry have completely changed the business of releasing albums.
Read below what Holt replied:
“There’s only so much you can do playing the same stuff over and over again. I guess the simplest way to put it is I need to make new music; it’s what keeps me motivated and keeps me interested.
”If I’m just gonna do tours and tell myself, ‘I’ve got enough albums. We’ll just make sure we vary the setlist a lot and we don’t need to make new music anymore,’ I would become incredibly bored incredibly fast and I probably wouldn’t wanna do it anymore. I mean, we make crushing, killer albums that stand up against any of the classic stuff.
”So we’re not out there force-feeding the audience a bunch of new songs they don’t wanna hear. People wanna hear the stuff. And I wanna play it. And it makes me happy. It makes all of us happy.”
