Whitechapel’s Alex Wade: “I Love Making Music But Hate Being In Such A Disposable Industry”


Whitechapel guitarist Alex Wade recently echoed some sentiments expressed by others in the music industry as of late regarding how fans perceive buying music these days. Speaking through his Twitter, Wade stated:

“It’s insane to me how little of a value most people put on music. They’ll buy a fast food meal for $10 that’s full of shit made by someone who doesn’t give a damn about them and it’s gone in 10 minutes, but won’t spend $10 on a CD that is someone’s artwork takes months to make, and lasts as long as the CD isn’t broken. Just boggles my mind. I love making music but hate being in such a disposable industry.”

“I mean trust me if I could make music for you guys for free I would but I need to feed myself and buy toilet paper to wipe my ass.”
