Trapt’s new record ‘Shadow Work’ sells just 600 albums in its first week of release

HAULIX introduces podcast focusing on musicians recovering from addiction

High Notes

HAULIX, which provides the software that I use to stream most of my reviews early, has announced that they’re launching the High Notes podcast later this month.

Hosted by James Shotwell, this podcast hones on a vital topic: addiction and recovery. Plaguing the music industry for decades, alcohol and drugs can and will ruin the lives of any musician seeking solace from the stress of touring, overworking, etc. It’s a discussion worth having over and over again to restructure and save lives.

High Notes has a who’s-who of musician guests that have personal experiences with this struggle, including Anthony Green of Circa Survive, Bert McCracken of The Used, Ronnie Winter of Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and several others. The podcast is partnered with HeartSupport (a powerful organization led by August Burns Red vocalist Jake Luhrs) and Global Recovery Initiatives Foundation.

Beginning July 28th, the entire eight-episode first season will be available wherever you stream podcasts.
