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.
