Welcome back to another episode of Pure EVil MMA Podcast with EVil Eddie and special guest, Jacob Shaw of the band Painless. Painless was formed last year by the members of EMMURE and Defiler and have made a big splash in 2018 with 99k streams on Spotify off their latest album and are looking to top that this year.
Jacob Shares his journey from middle school into the music scene and the struggles that went with keeping himself motivated while plenty of people threw rocks trying to shatter his dreams and settle for a safety net like so many do. His life made a big turn around while he was locked up in Juvenile and his music video with Defiler reached hundreds of thousands of views on youtube, skyrocketing him into a brand new mentality when he found out that record labels and even Jamey Jasta himself (Lead singer of Hatebreed) wanted to help him grow into the scene and begin playing live shows.
Most people are probably familiar with Jacob and his new band Painless with the recent trending meme they created of Kid Rock looking virtually identical to Dr.Phil and was even discussed on some of the biggest talk shows in the world. Painless went on to make a music video about Dr.Phil living a double life as Kid Rock and fans went nuts for it. Check this video out here : Dr.Phils Double Life Music Video This became part of the podcast discussion with the changing of times having to stay relevant since so many people have shorter and shorter attention spans. We also discuss the new era of Soundcloud rappers being the new age Punk Rock vibe that clicks with the new generation.
