Despite their name, Hang the Bastard are not a bunch of bastards, but a lovely bunch of guys. They are a band which, like Corrosion of Conformity (who they just supported on a near sell out UK tour), have undergone line-up changes which in turn changed their sound. Speaking to the lads in a graveyard outside the Colchester Arts Centre, we spoke about the tour, C.O.C’s influence, alienating old fans with their sound change, Desertfest, the future of the band and the immortal question: Pantera or Down?
Catch Hang the Bastard at Desertfest London this April. For more information about Desertfest, check out our interview with founder and organiser Reece Tee.
