#228 Today’s Boondoggle Prescribing some Dangerous New Medicine with Dan and Jake


In this episode Bill talks with Jake Scherer and Dan Garland of the band, New Medicine.
We talk about them connecting at their High School talent show, knowing that music was their calling and sticking to their mission while their peers were heading off to college, how the New Medicine name came to be, the dark side of success and record labels, touring with Avenged Sevenfold in arenas while sleeping in their van in Walmart parking lots to survive, and what an eye opening experience it was for them to play military bases overseas.
We also talk about the final straw that caused them to walk away from the music business, pursuing their other life goals during their hiatus, how spotify showed them their true worth as musicians and renew their passion for the band, working on new material, why their music videos are so much fun, all the tributes being paid in their latest music video Dangerous, and what they plan on doing differently on this next run, plus so much more.
