P E T E B E R W I C K Continued from page 38 quicker and easily available. I don’t know if CDs matter anymore. I think people by CDs at the gigs for memories and then they get home and they dump it in their computers and put it in their digital players. I think music is impor- tant, I think videos are important and I think a good song is important. They want to hear good songs instantly. I don’t think that it’s totally gone, but I think that the day of the CD is getting farther and farther behind us. Mosh: What’s ahead for Dirge Within? Shaun Glass: We want to do more shows, keep the social media presence and get some new music out there. Most people have discovered us from Facebook or are rediscovering us from the albums that are online. There seems to be a good word of mouth happening and a nice slow build has resurfaced. Hopefully, people find us through social media. I’d say once we start playing out again, starting in August, then we’ll see how it goes. Dirge Within appears 8/5 at Route 20 Outhouse, Sturtevant, Wisconsin/ MOSH-WORTHY RELEASES: Byzantine The Cicada Tree (Metal Blade Records), Doyle As We Die (Monsterman Records), Barb Wire Dolls Rub My Mind (Motörhead Music).
