(hed)p.e. Singer: “I Am More Concerned With How I Can Become A Better Man, Than I Am About Fucking Chemtrails Or The Illuminati”

(hed)p.e. frontman Jared “Jahred” Gomes has opened up with some personal struggles which he says will influence the band itself. He offered the following via the groups Facebook this weekend:

“Its time for a heart to heart between myself and those who support hedpe.

When I started this band in the early 90s, I was out of control. Meth, cocaine, xanax, vicodin…on and on and on…I did drugs that I cant remember the name of…like what was that clear liquid shit that could put you in a coma…GBH? Cant remember, anyway…I digress.

I’ve been abusing drugs and alcohol since I was 15.

So, the albums have always reflected my journey, and in the beginning the journey was all about sex, drugs and music, with no regard to anyone or anything.

Times change. I have a wife and son now. I have failed them on many occasion, because the hedpe thing carries with it many dark energies.

hedpe also carries with it many positive aspects…

Shame. Here I am pointing the finger at those who lie to us, and in my own life, I have not been 100 percent truthful. Forgive me.

Know Thyself. I am more concerned with how I can become a better man, than I am about fucking chemtrails or the illuminati.

Know Thyself.

I cant go on like this. I feel like if I don’t make an effort to live right, with love, clarity and integrity…I will just fade away…

Time to transmute myself from darkness to light…from lead to gold…and hedpe has no choice but to follow…”

    “I’ve been abusing drugs and alcohol since I was 15.” So that makes 26 years now. At least he waited until after the silver anniversary.

      Are we supposed to buy him a gift? I hope he registered at Macy’s.

    Thats funny, usually bands who used to do a lot of drugs and drank a lot, made some seriously kick ass music. I.E. Motley Crue, Metallica, SOAD, Incubus etc etc. They go clean and sober and the inspiration is gone. Whats your excuse gonna be now Jahred, when your bands music still sucks!

    I come into your house, make love to your spouse, fuck her in the mouth then I’m out.

        Did anyone else have the two song sampler tape they handed out at shows before Broke came out? I remember on the song Killing Time it had the line “I’m ’bout to kill that vagina”, but they changed it to “Bout to creep up inside ya” on the actual record. Random memory that just came to me.

    They’re going Christian G-punk on the next album.

    All I know is, that 1988 video of him performing with The Clue was fucking awesome. The only drug he was on at the time was a drug called spandex.

  • My Farts Linger

    Does this mean that their music will transition from bad to good?

  • 36aaronFists

    Never would have guessed they’d be around this long. Didn’t know they were still.

  • schuler

    Man, congrats on taking that step. Getting sober is no joke, and it could change your whole life. Now to be a dick and totally undercut the importance of what you’re doing, maybe now you’ll be able to focus on not being in a band that sucks.

      You basically said what I said yesterday. However, you were being a wee bit nicer about it.

  • Mama Ink

    I love HedPe and all of their albums, good or bad, I’m a fan for life!. So cute to hear my favorite rude boy get all mushy. I think it’s romantic.

      Why are you two bumping old stories from exactly 8 months ago? It’s freaking me out a little.

  • Monomate

    Dude, how can you “Not remember” the name GHB, when you can clearly remember the THREE letters involved?
