I, The Breather are back! After a long hiatus from 2015, the guys are back on the road doing their 10 year tour with support from Sleep Waker, Curses and Execution Day and are coming through Austin, Tx. We got to catch up with Shawn Spann, a founding member and vocalist of the band.
From formation in 2009 to disbanding in 2015, I, The Breather was a common name in the metal scene. But after some time off and a line up change, the guys are back and touring the states getting back into the groove. With the release of "Prey" in 2020, they gave the warning shot there was something happening. And with the release of "Brainsic" in 2021, they are now on the road to get back in front of the fans and make new memories.
We had a great time talking with Shawn about show jitters, new merch, supporting bands and Shawn's struggle with mental health (check the lyrics to Brainsic).
