Interview: Mike Fitz of Bad Marriage Discusses New EP, Artificial Mind

Bad Marriage is a Boston, Massachusetts-based sextet that formed in 2015. Their first two albums, 2019’s Bad Marriage and its successor, 2021’s Bad Marriage 2, generated much critical acclaim for their combination of nostalgic hard rock riffs with refreshingly modern lyrical cynicism. Up to this point, the band has since toured with dozens of legendary acts – everyone from Scott Weiland to Alice Cooper. On June 16th, 2023, the band put out their latest release, an EP titled Artificial Mind. Much of the EP features guest vocals by Jeff Keith, frontman of longtime tourmates Tesla, with additional production input by Tesla bassist Brian Wheat.

Tomorrow, Bad Marriage is back on the road as part of the Glam Slam Metal Tour, joining Quireboys and Enuff Z’Nuff. I caught up with the band’s guitarist Mike Fitz earlier this afternoon to discuss the tour, as well as their progression between releases, and the strengthening of familial unity in their eight years together.

About Jake Kussmaul

I come from a family who is passionate about all things music. I learned to sing at an early age, and by 13, had my very own Fender Strat guitar. I tried my hardest at learning all that I could. Because I was born with cerebral palsy, I had to teach myself an adaptive playing style. I learned to write and record my own music, despite these difficulties. In college, I started making great use of my writing abilities by reviewing music, as well as copy editing. I guess it's best to stick with what you know, while welcoming a fair challenge at the same time.
