SIMGE Survey: Getting To Know MichaelIronside // Stream “In the Mind”

Mike Mehalick June 14, 2016 Features, Interviews No Comments


It’s that time again! Today we have the latest from duo MichaelIronside who hail from Morris County and have yet to be featured on this NJ-born site. Let’s fix that now.

Consisting of guitarist Jeff Wasserburger and vocalist Adam Lepkowski, MichaelIronside are readying the release of their third record, the 12 song spanning So Dynamic, which will mark the band’s first ever vinyl release. The album’s latest single, “In the Mind,” runs a full gamut of wonderfully weird style blendings. Elements of Faith No More, Primus and the Dismemberment Plan all pop up in spots on “In the Mind,” with MichaelIronside’s own special sauce working as the lead pleasure spark of the sonic palette.

To go along with a stream of “In the Mind” we sent Jeff and Adam of MichaelIronside the SIMGE Survey to help better introduce them to you, dear blog follower! Stream the latest from MichaelIronside while checking out their responses below.
