Mike Neider talks about BL’AST! reunion and new album

BL’AST! guitarist Mike Neider recently spoke to Idioteq.com about the band’s reunion, new lineup, and their future. Asked how it feels to back after many years of absence, Mike replied:

“Ya know, it’s great! Crazy opportunity. Feeling like we have the baddest ride in the world and friends and peers threw us the keys.”

Mike also talked about the musical direction of BL’AST!’s upcoming album, which will be their first to contain original material since 1989’s Take the Manic Ride, and what fans can expect from it. His response was, “Not sure about that and I could answer this a million different ways but…The band has never been better and we are not gonna try to recreate our band we are continuing what we do.We are going to write BL’AST! not change it. No one has more respect for this band then the four of us playing it. It will be great for us as sounds have become more accessible when recording so we will take our elements into today w/ high expectations. So expect a ass kicking BL’AST! record nothing else.Its what we know.”
