Altsounds spoke with MCUD, aka Jared Gomes of Hed PE in a Q&A, asking the vocalist what’s usually the inspiration behind his lyrics. “Life. The music is mostly a reflection of my lifestyle, although I will sometimes take artistic license and just say things because they sound funny, or provocative, or just plain fit with the music,” the 46-year-old said. “But, in general, this music reflects what my interests are as an individual. And, I am part of a movement that is much bigger than myself. So, I use my music to entertain, but also to provoke thought and help people to question the things they have grown to accept.” The transcript at altsounds.com has since been removed.

HipOnline.com chatted with (hed) pe frontman Jahred and asked him about his future hopes. “Well to be honest I don’t really have much financial stability,” he admitted. “Art comes first for me, but in this world I don’t want to be living in a fu**ing refrigerator box on the street in an alley. I never will because even if I have to play whatever I will always make music. But it would be nice to have money to fuel more the art I have in mind.” Read the entire interview here.
(hed) pe drummer BC tells Billboard.com that one of the biggest shifts on the band’s latest album ‘Blackout’ is that vocalist Jahred “got back to singing melodies. It’s a lot less rap.” Jive marketing VP Kim Kaiman agrees: “The band has evolved. Jahred’s vocals are exemplary; he’s one of today’s great rock vocalists. His style is so unique. When you hear him, you know it’s (hed) pe.”
Dan Aquilante of the New York Post reviewed (hed) PE’s new album ‘Black Out’. He writes, “This new disc seems to be the band’s attempt to break from the pack with songs that acknowledge pop melody aesthetics while remaining true to the jagged edges of rap-metal.” He added, “This is an album of aggression, confusion and angst. Considering what’s going on politically on planet Earth, this is truly a disc for our times.” The full review at nypost.com has since been removed.
