STITCHED UP HEART singer Alecia "Mixi" Demner spoke to Central Mo News about the reaction from BLABBERMOUTH.NET commenters to the band's latest single, "Lost".
"All I read was all the boob stuff," she said (hear audio below). "Blabbermouth and their comments are hilarious. And I didn't see it until [James] Decker, our drummer, pointed it out. And I was, like, 'Oh my God!' They can be mean. They can be brutal. So I'm gonna go check out and see what they said. I'm sure there's bad ones in there. But I had to repost it. I was getting out a kick out of it."
She added: "I don't have boobs. I wear a padded bra and try to pretend. But, you know…"
"Lost", which features a guest appearance by GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna, will be included on STITCHED UP HEART's forthcoming sophomore album, tentatively titled "Darkness". The 13-song follow-up to 2016's "Never Alone" was produced by produced by Matt Good of FROM FIRST TO LAST and D.R.U.G.S.
Demner performed as a vocalist in various bands before starting STITCHED UP HEART in 2010. She previously told Spokesman.com that her influences are appropriately and wildly eclectic: PANTERA, GLASSJAW, DEFTONES, Louis Armstrong.
"I really like mixing those elements," Demner said, "the heavy, drop-tuned guitars with something that catches your attention and that you can remember."
STITCHED UP HEART is in the middle of a five-date U.S. run with GODSMACK and VOLBEAT.
