MUSIC NEWS: Zippo Encore Live With Jose Mangin Extended Due To Popular Demand
Over the last few weeks iconic lifestyle brand Zippo and Metal Ambassador™ Jose Mangin have been hosting a digital version of their festival interview series, Zippo Encore Live With Jose Mangin.
The episode that aired on 7th May 2020 was set to conclude the series, however due to popular demand the interview series will be extended over the coming weeks.
You can check out this week’s episode tonight (14th May 2020) at 6pm ET/11pm BST over on the Zippo Encore Facebook page HERE. Previous episodes are also available to watch on the Facebook page.
The series originally launched in 2017 to capture interviews at festival, but in times of lockdown Jose is interviewing rock legends remotely over the internet as he isolates in his studio. The lockdown series sees a surprise guest join Jose, who is unveiled as the show goes live. The previous guests in the series include M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold, Lzzy Hale and Joe Hottinger of Halestorm, Maria Brink of In This Moment and Mark Morton of Lamb Of God.
“This whole thing is going to make people and us really appreciate being in large gatherings and go to these shows, I can’t wait to go out and do anything – a restaurant, a show,” M. Shadows told Mangin in their recent chat. “People are going to be dipping their toes back in slowly and there are going to people who just don’t trust being in a crowd of that many people, so it’ll be a slow and gradual build back.”
Previously in the series, Lzzy Hale from Halestorm said: “During this pandemic, every song I sit down to write is purely for me. For all the creatives out there, we are living in the best time to just do whatever the hell you want.”
