You may have heard that the sons of Metallica‘s Lars Ulrich happen to be in a band together, that band being Taipei Houston. This past summer, the band released a music video for their song “As The Sun Sets,” and will have a new release out as of tomorrow (titled Once Bit Never Bored).
During a recent conversation with Rock Sound, Myles and Layne Ulrich talked about their work as a band, as well as opened up about some advice that their Metallica dad has parted onto them. Speaking to what that advice entails, the following is shared:
“Yeah, I think especially early on, he gave some advice that was cool. You know, we played him a few songs and… there’s not really like one soundbite in particular [regarding advice Lars gave]. It was more just like stuff about, you know, ‘Don’t waste time doing this or doing that; don’t take 10 years to make your music.’ Like, ‘Get it out there, go show people what you’re doing.’ You know what I mean? Just be smart and time-efficient and the kind of stuff like general industry advice – which is always really good to have, I think, because the music industry is crazy.”
What do you make of this advice that Lars Ulrich has parted onto his sons? Keep a look out for Taipei Houston’s Once Bit Never Bored when it comes out tomorrow! Speaking of advice from Metallica, Castor Hetfield of Bastardane – and the son of Metallica guitarist/singer James Hetfield – has also gotten some wisdom from his metal dad. Earlier this year, Bastardane released a new album titled Is This Rage?. If you have already heard the album, what are your thoughts on it?
