ROCK MUSIC OFTEN DRAWS ON DARKER ELEMENTS OF LIFE, WHY DO YOU THINK THE DARK SIDE OF REALITY IS SUCH A RICH SOURCE OF INSPIRATION?

I don’t really see it as dark, I see it as real, and the fact is reality right now is pretty scary. Popular music seems to be really focussing on escaping, and everyone just wants to have a “good time” kind of shit, but I want to give people something to listen to that allows them to escape into a different world, something that really connects with them deep down, not just going to the club or focussing on escaping the fears of reality, I want to make something that helps them through that fear, not escape it.

DO YOU THINK PEOPLE NEED AN ESCAPE FROM DAILY LIFE?

There’s escape and then there’s hiding from your fears. I feel like rock, when done well, can empower a person, from Pink Floyd to Rage Against the Machine, it makes you feel stronger, like you can really take on life instead of the (dare I say it) the “YOLO” mentality; how the fuck do we know if we only live once? And if we do, shouldn’t we take it seriously? Fun is important but it’s not entirely fulfilling, I want people to feel it deep down, not just inspire them to do another shot of vodka, but to inspire them to live a deep fulfilling life on their own terms, be unique and make your own statement

Thank you for finally giving me a favorite Disney princess.

But seriously, I miss Chicago right now.
