Fletcher (Pennywise) on destroying dressing rooms, roughing up Fat Mike, side-projects and more

The other week I sat down with Pennywise guitarist/founding member Fletcher Dragge to discuss… well, just about everything.  By now you’ve hopefully already read Part 1 of the interview in which Fletcher holds nothing back regarding Jim’s departure, Zoli, and “All Or Nothing”.  Part 2 of this interview is a little less focused, but every bit as intriguing, as Fletcher regales us with tales of dressing room destruction, altercations with LAPD, throwing Fat Mike into drum sets, and the causes and effects of living his punk rock lifestyle.  We also talk about Fletcher’s extracurricular musical activities; from producing albums to forming a new band side project with Matt from The Bronx (say what!?).  Oh yeah, we also discuss the reasons for the abrupt disappearance of former label mates Deviates at what seemed like the height of their musical careers.

Read it all right here.



Deviates set to reform after 8-year hiatus?

Deviates are apparently set to get back together after an 8-year hiatus. The band, who called it quits back in 2003, just posted an announcement on their Facebook page stating that a new album and tour for next year are in the works. The band simply wrote:

“The eight year break is over and we’re back from the dead. We plan to release a new album and tour next year. Deviates rise again!”

The band has given no further more information regarding their reunion, except their Facebook page states that it will feature best known lineup of Brian Barbara (vocals), Charley Marshall (guitar), Damien McDougle (bass), Donnie Conrad (drums).

Deviates released their last studio album Time Is the Distance in 2001 on Epitaph Records.

UPDATE: After numerous emails from fans it looks like this could be a hoax.  Though why somebody would go through all the effort of creating a fake FB and Twitter account for the band just to announce some fake news is beyond us.  We’ll remain hopeful but await further confirmation…
