Backstage Pass: Havok frontman David Sanchez talks about the band's new album and tour


1 comment

We caught up with Havok frontman David Sanchez at Pirates Cove/Peabody's just after the band had finished soundcheck. The band headlines tonight as part of a multi-band bill. Sanchez (along with his bushy hair and beard), who was reading Friedrich Nietzsche's Anti-Christ when we first spotted him backstage, spoke about the band's terrific new album, Unnatural Selection, and what he hopes fans get out of his left-leaning lyrics.
