The impressive list of upcoming guests includes Five Finger Death Punch's Ivan Moody, In This Moment's Maria Brink, Falling in Reverse's Ronnie Radke, Mammoth WVH's Wolfgang Van Halen, and several others.
Hosted by Matt Pinfield (MTV, VH1), Caity Babs (SiriusXM's Octane) and Josh Bernstein (Revolver Golden Gods, Loudwire), the show premiered on Feb. 15 after initially launching on the Danny Wimmer Presents Twitch channel.
