Show Notes

Thanks for your patience over the past week. I didn't expect COVID to hit me so hard, but I'm back (well, recovering) with one of the delayed episodes -- an interview with Ryan and Suzy of post-punk power trio Softswitch!

We talked about getting back into band mode after a long hiatus, their more stripped-down, heavier new sound, working on an upcoming new EP and much more!

Want more? Softswitch was also on episode #338 back in 2018!

This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company and by the Winterruption festival! 

Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on Patreon! You can help out for as little as $1 a month if you like the show and want to throw some change in the guitar case! You can also throw a one-time tip via Buymeacoffee.

As always, if you like the podcast, please tell a friend or 20! Rate and review on your podcast player of choice! Word of mouth is still the main way Witchpolice Radio reaches new ears.

Thanks for listening!
