Show #255: God Am Returns

God AM, last seen on the show about two years ago, has continued to expand their fan base and sphere of influence. While the genre has been on something of a decline here in Indy (owing mostly to the recent loss of such staple clubs as The Jukebox/5th Quarter and the Rock House), they have begun to make inroads up north in Lafayette and further south in Louisville, Kentucky. With the first two singles from their next release available now, and a half-dozen more planned over the course of the next few months, the band cleverly maintains a freshness and constant relevance with the local metal scene.

Possibly more amusing than hanging out the guys in the band, was watching our good friend Mike Myers devolve into Bubba Blue from Forrest Gump in an attempt to find a variety of metal music that has not yet been attempted by a local band, or possibly by any band anywhere before. Seriously, does anybody know of any original "banjo metal" bands? They don't even have to be good, really. We just need to know if this is a "thing." And yes, we know about the guy who does AC/DC and Sabbath covers on a banjo. We're talking original banjo metal.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
