The Haunted Kept Their Day Jobs

(TeamRock Radio) The Haunted's frontman Marco Aro says having a regular day job means he can enjoy being in a band once again. Aro is looking forward to the release of the band's eighth album Exit Wounds on August 25 - the first album the group has made since he returned for his second spell as singer last year.

And although he says he always missed being in The Haunted after leaving in 2003, it was a reduced touring schedule and the stability of a day job that convinced him to return.

He tells Dear Rhetoric: "I've always been a metal worker - a construction worker, blacksmith. The thing about this time around is that we all have jobs so our lives don't depend on The Haunted - we can do it just for fun.

"We don't need to do it to put food on the table. Music is supposed to be fun. It's not supposed to be a must. Once it becomes a must, you can tell. We don't ever want to be that band that is doing their job and you can tell from a mile away. We are doing this for fun, and once it becomes a must, we need to sit down, take stock, and reconsider what the point is that we are missing." More on this story.
