Saliva

   Bursting onto the scene in 2000 with "Your Disease," Saliva is back into our system with a high profile release and headlining spot on the Jägermeister Music Tour along with (hed) Planet Earth, Breaking Benjamin, Systematic, and Stereomud. Saliva has brought their game to a new level and threw away any thoughts of the sophomore jinx. Before their show in Philadelphia, I had the opportunity to sit down with singer Josey Scott and guitarist Chris D and chat before it was time for them to hit the stage. Listen as Chris & Josey talk about recording Back into Your System, digital music and more.

Answer

I want to thank Josey & Chris for taking the time to talk to me. The guys in Saliva were awesome and put on a killer show. Hopefully Philly gets to see this great band again soon, I know I will certainly be in the audience when it happens.
