The Racket’s new host

After a run of guest hosts including Soundwave boss AJ Maddah, triple j has finally announced that the The Racket, now has a new host – 24-year old Lochlan Watt.

You may know Watt as the quest vocalist on The Amity Affliction’s Snitches Get Stitches or for his work at the vocalist/drummer/synth player for triple j favourites Western Decay, The Surrogate, Ironhide and post-hardcore outfit Nuclear Summer.

Watt has already interviewed some of the names in heavy music including Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Parkway Drive, Lamb of God, Damaged, Gojira, Napalm Death and Despised Icon so he’s sure to slip into his new job without too much fuss when he takes over The Racket at 10pm on Tuesday 28th February.
