These days, it’s surprisingly commonplace for power couples in the metal and hard rock scenes to musically collaborate and tour together. Halestorm‘s Lzzy Hale and Joe Hottinger and Suicide Silence‘s Alex Lopez and Jinjer‘s Tatiana Shmailyuk serve as more recent examples of that. One such couple who have been spending a lot of time together in recent years in their professional lives is In This Moment frontwoman Maria Brink and DED frontman Joe Cotela. The latter guests on the track “Hunting Grounds” on In This Moment‘s latest album “Mother“.
In a recent chat with ‘BREWtally Speaking Podcast‘ (hear it below,) Cotela was asked if he has any concern over the success of his band being attributed to his romantic relationship with Brink.
