On the latest episode of Into The Void, I spoke with Iowa quartet, Saul. We delved into various aspects of their music journey, their 13-year-long career, the making of their second full-length album, THIS IS IT...THE END OF EVERYTHING, and how their music has helped them connect with their fans on a deeper level. We explored all this and more!
Saul has made a living within their careers over the past 13 years forming a meaningful connection with their music. Hailing from Iowa, the four-piece band comprising of Blake Bedsaul on lead vocals, Zach Bedsaul on lead guitar and backup vocals, William McIlravy on bass and backup vocals, and Myles Clayborne on drums, never cease to amaze their audiences with their distinctive and hard-hitting metallic groove, coupled with soaring and captivating melodies that leave lasting impressions on listener's minds. Since emerging onto the scene from the Midwest in 2010 with their EP, Embrace The Rain, Saul has worked incessantly to become one of the most well-known bands in modern rock.
“We’re writing from real personal experiences, and we hope you can latch onto them,” Blake says. “Saul is our lives. It’s not just what we do; it’s who we are. There are real guys behind this story.”
Now the band has released their second full-length, THIS IS IT...THE END OF EVERYTHING. Collaborating with producer Kile Odell [Motionless In White, Nita Strauss] this time around, Saul has created a soundtrack that not only shows an expanded sonic soundscape from the band, but an album about breaking free from societal norms.
We talk about all of this and more in the latest episode!
