Rex Cox (vocals, guitar) and his brother Zak Cox (guitar) are the founders of Uncured, a New Jersey-based metal band. Uncured is preparing to spend the entire month of May 2023 on tour supporting acts like Adelitas Way, Anvil, and Filter. They have performances scheduled at the Welcome To Rockville festival in Florida, and in mid-July they will be playing the monumental Inkcarceration festival in Mansfield, OH, where they will share the stage with the likes of Lamb Of God, In This Moment, and Pantera. Uncured is due to release a new EP called My Design on June 2nd on Pavement Entertainment.
In this interview, Zak and Rex describe the sound of Uncured and explain why they removed their first two records from streaming platforms, and how they hope to rebrand themselves for the future. The guys also discuss being diverse, mixing melody with madness in their music.

Hello everyone! My name is Scott Itter, but some know me as Dr. Music. I am a music journalist and photographer out of the Chicagoland area, and I have been in practice for over 20 years. I grew up in the 70’s with two big brothers that showed me all kinds of rock and roll. As I grew older I ventured out into different genres like jazz, funk, folk, and whatever else I could wrap my ears around. As I read every liner note and every Circus and Hit Parader like they were the Old and New Testament, I came to realize that I just love sound and appreciate all the people that create it.
I later became a stay-at-home dad and started honing my writing and photography skills to keep my mind from turning into mashed peas. My kids are now adults, my mind is only slightly mushy, and I am thrilled to have the honor of presenting my work to you!
