Hopesfall is a very influential post hardcore/spirit filled hardcore band. They emerged in the North Carolina scene and the greater Southeast with bands like Beloved, Stretch Armstrong, he is legend, Underoath and Luti-Kriss around 2000. they were a Furnacefest band and a Cornerstone band.   They were signed to Takehold Records who was acquired by Tooth and Nail in 2003 but due to some changes in the bands lineup and other factors, Hopesfall rejected the opportunity to be on Solidstate at that time and was allowed to instead sign to Trustkill records.    This conversation begins with me and Brandon Ebel talking about how he wanted Hopesfall, but it wasn't meant to be.     LABELED FEST: https://bit.ly/2WbN29h Use promo code: LABELED for 20% off   Music in this episode...

Joe Musten is the heartbeat of Beloved. He is known for doing all the lead screaming while being an absolutely brutal drummer. I think of Joe as an uncompromising and incorruptible purist and someone who sees the whole picture. He is driven to authentically express his passion in every situation, from live performance, to the studio recordings, to fan interaction, to band member, friend or podcast guest.   SPONSOR: Grandpa Loves Rhinos Song- Gimmie Gimme  https://open.spotify.com/artist/0tUI0co94MZfQ539byIwyw?si=wxBnh0SgRmi31LlXaAt-7A&dl_branch=1   Music in this episode...

Chad Johnson- The Schemer

Chad Johnson is a significant figure in this movement who was identifying next level talent that was yet to reach its potential and creating opportunities for them. He was quite successful in aggregating and attracting further talent primarily in the southeast region. Further Seems Forever, Underoath, twothirtyeight, hopesfall, and more. He created Furnace Fest which became in addition to Cornerstone, a Mecca and pilgrimage to legendary experience. His record label, Takehold Records, was acquired by Tooth & Nail in the early 2000's where Chad was A&R for many of the largest bands on the label. He left Tooth & Nail to start Come and Live! in 2009 and now has revived Furnace Fest in 2021.   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon Join Labeled on Facebook www.furnacefest.us SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: twothirtyeight- Coin Laundry Loser Underoath - A Boy Brushed Red Live mewithoutyou- January 1979 Showbread- Mouth Like a Magazine Underoath- Never Meant to Break Your Heart   MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
One the first releases ever on Solid State, Stretch Armstrong were pioneers of the scene that was emerging in the southeast in the late 90’s. Known for being straight edge and positive, Chris McLaine was one of the most engaging front men of the era. His message was always to include and to encourage and to make a positive impact. From the beginning Chris truly understood the what a scene was and that its life-force was found at the community level.   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Stretch Arm Strong "For the Record" Green Day "When I Come Around" Stretch Arm Strong "When Sorrow Falls" Stretch Arm Strong "For Now" MXPX "My Life Story" Underoath "Reinventing Your Exit" Norma Jean "Memphis Will be Laid to Rest"   MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
Scott Mellinger joined the legendary band Zao to replace Brett Detar as a musician between the albums, When Blood and Fire Bring Rest and Liberate Te Ex Inferis. He immediately brought a new sonic element helping them arrive at their signature sound, but his influence didn't stop there. Despite being in a band with big personalities, Scott emerged as a leader and became the band's stabilizing point guard. Zao's streak of longevity was truly unexpected given their early years and the amount of environmental change that has occurred since the late ’90s, making them about as legendary as it gets in our world. Scott's a great thinker and I always feel it's a privilege to speak with him.   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Further Seems Forever "Make It A Part" Starflyer 59 "All The Time" Pedro the Lion "Almost There" Zao "Savannah" Zao "Angel Without Wings" Zao "Five Year Winter" Jesse Smith & The Holy Ghost "The Mountain" Zao "Into the Jaws of Dread" Zao "Intro" Zao "Creator/Destroyer" Zao "The Crimson Corridor" Zao "Ship of Theseus" Zao "Croatoan"   MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
The Showdown is a very special band who was able to break a lot of new ground and turn a lot of heads by taking what was going on in heavy music and amplifying it to extreme levels by adding new layers of performance that mixed art and crowd interaction with humor to create a symphony of chaos that played the audience like an instrument. Their front man David Bunton is a legend in the scene when it comes to stage persona.

Lead singers tend to get and often deserve the most attention in most bands. They carry a large burden and the spotlight is not at all easy to manage, but some of the most talented and valuable people are not the ones in the limelight. Randy Torres has done it all in the Tooth & Nail world, and he has done it well.  Guitarist for Project 86, engineer for Aaron Sprinkle, A&R for the label, touring musician for Anberlin, composer, sound designer and more.  Coming from a supportive environment in SoCal at just the right time in the late 90's, Randy has been able to make a great career for himself and that career is marked mainly by how personable and likable and easy to work with he is. He has been a great inspiration of how to be for many people including me.     https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Project 86 "The Spy Hunter" Stavesacre "Threshold" The Blamed "Feeding the Ignorant" Living Sacrifice "Reject" Project 86 "Spill Me" Project 86 "One Armed Man (Play On)" Jonezetta "Get Ready (Hot Machete)" Anberlin "The Feel Good Drag" NYVES "Something Divine"   MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
Hanging with Hangnail

Hanging with Hangnail

2020-12-2257:55

Hangnail is an old school classic Tooth & Nail punk band and is back with new holiday music! It's their first new music in 17 years.  This seemed like a good occasion to hang out with the whole band and look all the way back to the mid 90's as this group of best friends in high school, who never had a lineup change and were first generation Tooth & Nail kids just trying to play cover songs until they got their first big opportunity at Cornerstone '98.   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Hangnail "O Come All Ye Faithful" Plankeye "Goodbye" Slick Shoes "Fall" Stavesacre "Keep Waiting" Further Seems Forever "Pictures of Shorelines" Hangnail "Friendly Advice (Live 2002)" Hangnail "I'm Only Human" Hangnail "All That I Wanted" Hangnail "Survey of Self" Hangnail "One Small Child (feat Josh Kemble)"   MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
Acceptance is a Tooth & Nail artist a couple of decades in the making.  They just made and released their first album on Tooth & Nail called Wild, Free this year. But it was right here in the Seattle Tacoma area where Acceptance was founded in 2003, right at the time that Tooth & Nail was transitioning to the new sound with the explosion of the 2nd generation.  Acceptance, who were first generation Tooth & Nail kids, teamed up with Aaron Sprinkle, and instead of taking the indie path, they were one of the first bands to be scooped up by a major label right off the bat and in a lot of ways were the major’s guinea pigs. they created a landmark album called Phantoms that became a legend of the scene, but the band never truly found a groove before disbanding in 2006. Their music, however, would continue to rise in popularity thereafter, and is still known as a flagship Seattle band.   Acceptance "Wild, Free" https://acceptance.ffm.to/album https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Acceptance “Take Cover” Craig’s Brother “Insult to Injury” Acceptance “Permanent” Acceptance “So Contagious” Acceptance “Cold Air” Acceptance “Wildfires”   MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
Slick Shoes is back and full of new life. It's not uncommon for bands to reunite these days, but it's often just to play through an old album or do a reunion tour. Occasionally, reuniting bands put out new music. Some times that music is good, but rarely does it capture the full original spirit or energy of the band's former youthful self, but in this case, Slick Shoes has in fact done that. It has been 17 years since their last album, and the new music is killer. 2003 was pretty much the year that the Tooth & Nail scene had fully completed its generational change from punk and pop punk to the rising emo and screamo. This conversation with the full band really helps to paint the picture of that transition. We also cover the band's formation, personalities, and musical approach.   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Slick Shoes “Feeble” Further Seems Forever “The Moon is Down” Strongarm “Advent of a Miracle” Zao “Times of Separation” The Chariot “The City” MxPx “Your Problem My Emergency” Slick Shoes “Rusty” Slick Shoes “For Better For Worse” Slick Shoes “My Ignorance” Slick Shoes “Darko” Slick Shoes “2008” Slick Shoes “Carry This” Slick Shoes “Whispers”   MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
The Juliana Theory: Part One

The Juliana Theory: Part One

2020-09-1101:36:001

The Juliana Theory’s biggest album, Emotion Is Dead, one of the most legendary in the Tooth & Nail catalog, just reached its 20 year anniversary. This episode explores the conditions in which the band and particularly the frontman Brett Detar emerged.   The western Pennsylvania/ West Virginia scene, from which Zao and The Juliana Theory are from is another hot spot that emerged and connected to the wider scene in the late 90’s in part by connecting to the Arkansas scene with Barry Poynter through Bruce from Living Sacrifice.   Bret was the guitarist in Zao, and lead singer for The Juliana Theory. Both wildly successful 90’s groups and often listed among the favorites of bands of the subsequent generation, many of whom were known for fusing hardcore with sad emo elements and learning how to tie it together in a way that could reach an even wider audiences with some pop appeal. The influence is hard to overstate.     https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: The Julianna Theory “Duane Joseph” Overcome “When Beauty Dies” Zao “Resistance” Zao “Times of Separation” Bloodshed “Words For The First Time” Strongarm “Advent of a Miracle” Living Sacrifice “Reborn Empowered” The Julianna Theory “We’re At The Top Of The World” The Juliana Theory "If I Told You This Was Killing Me, Would You Stop?"   MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
Ninety Pound Wuss formed in 1994 just down the road from MxPx, and became one of the first bands on the label. The Seattle indie scene at the time was quite artistic and developed compared to the rest of the country, it could easily be described as snobby. Bands like Ninety Pound Wuss and Roadside Monument had a very difficult fight to prove their legitimacy in the eyes of their peers and to get the opportunities they deserved, so being associated with and dropped into the Christian pop punk subculture gave them great exposure but came at a cost.   This was an in person conversation and features Jeff and Marty from Ninety Pound Wuss, and legend Matt Johnson from Blenderhead, Roadside Monument, and Ninety Pound Wuss.     https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook Pre-order / pre-save Lightworker’s "Fury By Failure," out June 12th :: http://lightworker.ffm.to/fury Follow Lightworker on Spotify :: https://spoti.fi/3fZm8XD   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Ninety Pound Wuss “Something Must Break” Ninety Pound Wuss “Perserverence” Norma Jean - “I Used to Hate Cell Phones But Now I Hate Car Accidents” Live at Cornerstone ’02 Blenderhead “Bottle Breaker” Extol “Undeceived” Frodus “Lights On for Safety” Zao “To Think Of You is to Treasure an Absent Memory” Blenderhead “La Grieta” Roadside Monument “Compressor District” Starflyer 59 “A Housewife Love Song” Ninety Pound Wuss “Girl Song”    MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
Tooth & Nail goes global in the mid 90’s by acquiring and licensing Christian metal bands from Norway: Extol, Lengsel, and Selfmindead.  This episode explores how kids growing up on the other side of the world were having parallel experiences to kids here with regards to discovering heavy music and finding identity amidst struggles with authority and religion, and in just the same way, great and influential music was created to express those feelings that resonated with others. Along with the rise of the mail-order scene and the internet, global connections were able to be made musically with other like-minded people who would then have the opportunity to influence one another.   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook Pre-order / pre-save Lightworker’s "Fury By Failure," out June 12th :: http://lightworker.ffm.to/fury Follow Lightworker on Spotify :: https://spoti.fi/3fZm8XD   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Extol “Undeceived” The Crucified “The Pit” Fold Zandura “Samovar” Selfmindead “One Step Forward” Pedro the Lion “Penetration” Extol “Gloriana” Benea Reach “Ground Slayer” BANKS “Gemini Feed” Mantric “Polyanna” Asuza “Interstellar Island” Asuza “Memories of an Old Emotion”    MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
Some say that Bruce Fitzhugh is the Godfather of Christian Metal and while he would resist that designation, he is certainly at minimum the driving force behind one of Solid State Records' first big successes as the lead vocalist and guitarist from Living Sacrifice. He also is credited as being central in the development of the heavy music scene that gave rise to a very positive culture that emerged in central Arkansas in the 90's, the national scene, and eventually the mainstream.   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook Pre-order / pre-save Lightworker’s "Fury By Failure," out June 12th :: http://lightworker.ffm.to/fury Follow Lightworker on Spotify :: https://spoti.fi/3fZm8XD   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Living Sacrifice “Reborn Empowered” Living Sacrifice “Nonexistent” Stavesacre “Gold And Silver” Living Sacrifice “Second Death” - Demo Zao “Lies of Serpents, A River Of Tears” Embodyment “Halo of Winter” Living Sacrifice “Reborn Empowered” Live at Cornerstone ’00 Living Sacrifice “Flatline”    MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
Frodus was a pioneer post hardcore band whose influence is larger than their footprint ever was. This important group was recognized early by Brandon and Tooth & Nail, who acquired  Frodus, a non-Christian from the 90’s DC punk scene that transitioned into the Tooth & Nail world as part of the recipe for the success of the scene we all know and love being built. These origins and early attractions to the  danger of music and new movements is something we all feel or felt at some point to varying degrees, but Nate particularly embodies that mindset  and is able to articulate the experience quite well.    https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook Pre-order / pre-save Lightworker’s "Fury By Failure," out June 12th :: http://lightworker.ffm.to/fury Follow Lightworker on Spotify :: https://spoti.fi/3fZm8XD   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Frodus “The Misaligned Men of Flomation” Roadside Monument “Sperm Ridden Burden” Live at Cornerstone ’02 Starflyer 59 “I Drive A Lot” Demon Hunter “Lifewar” Refused "Rather Be Dead" Thrice cover of Frodus’ “The Earth Isn’t Humming” Live Frodus “Red Bull of Juarez”    MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
If there is are legends in this scene, Josh Scogin is one of them: frontman of Luti-Kriss, Norma Jean, The Chariot, and ‘68. Josh has played thousands of show, and from what we can all gather from our shared experiences of seeing them, and from scouring the internet, there appears to be not even a single moment in any of those thousands of shows where Josh is ever giving anything less than his whole self.    While the word “passion” can be overused and misunderstood, what people are talking about when they use the word, is what Josh Scogin performing is. If you could bottle that and sell it you’d be a millionaire. I’d define it more like someone powerful being fully invested in the moment in search of something that has intrinsic worth, and in Josh’s own words, it seems that beauty is what he is in search of.   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook Pre-order / pre-save Lightworker’s "Fury By Failure," out June 12th :: http://lightworker.ffm.to/fury Follow Lightworker on Spotify :: https://spoti.fi/3fZm8XD Pre-Order Emery's New Album "White Line Fever" with code LABELED for 10% off   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: Norma Jean “Shotgun Message” The Chariot “And Then, Came Then” The Chariot “The City” (Live in Moscow) Starflyer 59 “Minor Keys” Starflyer 59 “Twenty Dollar Bills” Starflyer 59 “I Like Your Photographs” The Chariot “Before There Was Atlanta, There Was Doughlasville” The Chariot “Back to Back” Lightworker “Empyre” Emery “Civil Wars” ’68 “Whether Terrified or Unafraid” (Live in Tennessee)    MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store

Chapter 29   We have reached the final chapter of our series! We’ve seen both Tooth & Nail and the scene grow from being independent, in basements and obscurity, and grow until they were partnered with a giant corporation and had artists all over MTV and mainstream radio. Today we see how Tooth & Nail came full circle from all the mayhem and tied hands that came along with that, to once again become a true indie label.   https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: MxPx "Chick Magnet" Starflyer 59 “Fell In Love at 22” Underoath “A Boy Brushed Red Living in Black and White” Jonezetta “Get Ready (Hot Machete)” mewithoutYou “Messes of Men” Silent Planet “Trilogy” Blenderhead "Escape Reason" MxPx “Secret Weapon”    MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
Chapter 28   Matt MacDonald from The Classic Crime was not a first or second generation Tooth & Nail kid;  he and his band just happened to intersect with the label and the scene right near its peak. With their polished commercial sound, aspirations of mainstream success, a hotshot management team, and Tooth & Nail's partnership with EMI, upstreaming them into the big leagues seemed like a solid bet. The expectations were understandably high all around. Many special opportunities would come their way, but ultimately, the music industry and the indie scene had a few curveballs up their sleeve, giving Matt some unexpected opportunities to learn lessons he was not hoping to learn.     https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: The Classic Crime “The Coldest Heart” The Classic Crime “Who Needs Air” Tyson Motsenbocker “Come to California” Pedro the Lion “Almost There” MxPx “What’s Mine is Yours” Anberlin “Paper Thin Hymns” The Classic Crime “Salt in the Snow” The Classic Crime “Highlights” The Classic Crime “The Water’s Edge”    MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store

Chapter 27   Former Tooth & Nail employee, Derek Tenbusch, in many ways is a similar to Brandon Ebel.  Both got their start as low level employees of a record label in southern California, because of their love for music, and thought it would be satisfying to help good art thrive. Eventually both became dissatisfied with the limited scope of those around them and sought to do more. Only Derek didn’t come from the indie-punk Christian scene, he worked for the corporate giant that controlled Tooth & Nail and with whom Brandon was having conflict.   So maybe it was fate that brought Derek to work directly for Tooth & Nail and push millions of records into mainstream outlets for the first time, or maybe it was that they were like-minded people like to work hard for big results by collaborating on a small and focused creative team of people who all believe in something far more important than just a paycheck or the status that comes with a title. This is the same thing that motivates musicians, fans, and people like the interns who work so hard at places like record labels.  However, it becomes increasingly more rare to see the people at the higher levels of responsibility actually continue to posses this type of motivation.  They often fall into one of two traps: trying to do less work for more money, or being concerned with their own power and not the furthering of there original aim. These patterns extend far beyond the music industry and can be applied everywhere, but in this particular case, we also get a really clear picture of just what the music industry was and maybe still is like at the larger scale and get to reflect on the time period when Tooth & Nail and its small team was having massive impact in a collapsing industry.     https://labeledpodcast.com/ Support Labeled on Patreon  Join Labeled on Facebook   SONGS YOU HEARD ON THIS EPISODE: He Is Legend “The Seduction” Starflyer 59 “All My Friends Who Play Guitar” mewithoutYou Live at Cornerstone Norma Jean “Memphis Will Be Laid to Waste” Mae “We’re So far Away” Underoath “Young and Aspiring” Emery “Walls” Live Beloved “Only Our Faces Hide”    MORE FROM TOOTH & NAIL: * Labeled: Music From The Podcast: smarturl.it/labeledplaylist * DISCOVER IT: New Tracks from T&N Records: smarturl.it/TNNDiscover * This Is Solid State: New Tracks from Solid State Records: https://spoti.fi/2CUCsaH    * Tooth & Nail Store (LABELED Patreon members get 20% off everything): tnn.lnk.to/store
