“These crazy times allow crazy new ideas and possibilities…creating something very cool today… You’ll know what it is soon enough… #stayhome.”
Also, during a new appearance on Loudwire, Mike Portnoy continued to warn people about this difficult coronavirus outbreak. While Mike advised his fans on how they could spend time at home, he said that they could listen to the legendary bands like Sepultura and Testament‘s new albums.
“I hope you’re hanging in there,” he said. “I know these are crazy, unprecedented times. I don’t think I’ve ever spent this much time at home in 20 years now. I know we’re all missing being out there with friends, we’re missing going to concerts, I’m missing playing concerts, but we’ve got to do what’s right. We’ve got to stay safe, stay inside, stop the spread.”
He continued: “Look at the bright side. You can listen to some new music that’s out – listen to the new ‘Code Orange’ or ‘Sepultura’ or ‘Testament.’ Or if you want to experiment with some different styles of music, listen to the new ‘Fiona Apple’ or ‘Once and Future Band.’”
