The Alarm opened the show, I think, so they were literally the first live band I had ever seen play at a concert. I was so freaked out. I was just a fledgling punk rocker, having recently lost the parachute pants and thrown away my Rockwell cassette in exchange for combat boots and the Dead Kennedys. I also loved a lot of new wave type stuff, and the Alarm and the Pretenders were sort of crossed over, pop rock, new wave, but with some of the attitude of punk. We’ve got a whole new project that we’re slowly unveiling that will be fully revealed in 2018. It’s called Blood Red Viral Black, Peters explains. The thought process was a series of songs that looked inward and were describing what was happening in my life and family life as the relapse unfolded.
