Watch: Vocalist Calls Out Venue For Merch Cuts Between Songs

"You'd think venues doing that could afford some good f**king air conditioning."

Alpha Wolf

Australian metalcore act Alpha Wolf is currently out on the road in the U.S. and vocalist Lochie Keogh isn't too thrilled about venue merch cuts. During a recent show, Keogh called out venues for taking 20% merch cuts from all the bands playing and noted that the loss is really cutting into bottom lines.

"Before we go, I want to mention every band on this tour is still merch over there. We're all trying to get the same shit done. It doesn't matter whose merch you buy. Any bit of money you spend helps. Especially when these dirty fucking venues are taking twenty-percent of it from the bands playing tonight. It's like we're not making any fucking money anyway. You'd think venues doing that could afford some good fucking air conditioning, but apparently not."

Check out the video of Keogh's callout below and make sure to check out Alpha Wolf's music here. You can also catch Alpha Wolf at one of the dates below.
