The Other - Fear Itself

Release date: 19.06.2015

There are phases in life which you want to leave behind as quickly as possible, as The Other know only too well. Although their album The Devils You Know and subsequent tour of Germany marked a major step in the right direction in 2012, the band surrounding frontman Rod Usher soon suffered a number of severe setbacks: Usher & Co. found themselves having to cope with two significant personnel changes – which also meant a 50% exodus of their former line-up, leaving Rod Usher and drummer Doc Caligari to their own devices. “Of course we asked ourselves: quo vadis?” Usher confesses, “but from the beginning Doc and I were determined to keep going, no matter what. Now we know that sometimes you have to wade through a vale of tears to create an atmosphere of departure.” The band owes its new-found optimism to Pat Laveau, Ben Crowe (both guitars) and Aaron Torn (bass). These are the new additions who have not only closed the gap brilliantly but have also made the band stylistically more diverse than ever before thanks to the conscious distribution of the guitar parts onto two pairs of shoulders. You want proof? All you have to do is listen to the new album Fear Itself, a dark grab bag packed with the most powerful horror punk worldwide, the way only The Other are capable of creating it. Usher: “Our new band members have contributed lots of ideas to the new album, so our musical range is more diverse than ever before.”
