The Haunted Kept Their Day Jobs
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.
