INTERVIEW: Field Cate of Fencer Discusses Their “Garage Opera” Sound, Mental Health Issues, and More


Ghost Cult caught up with Field Cate from up-and-coming rockers Fencer late in 2022 to discuss their upcoming debut self-titled album, due out on February 3rd, 2023 via Blood Blast Distribution. The band also recently performed a holiday livestream concert benefiting the Life Rolls On Foundation.

We discussed the formation of Fencer, the sound of the band, their impactful songs on streaming services, a frank discussion of Field’s mental health struggles, his goals for the band, and much more
