I think that's one of the best interviews i've read in a while. He seemed super honest and really into it. Usually his interviews come across like he doesn't really want to be talking to the person, you know? hahah

Good stuff.

I really enjoyed this interview, especially this part:

"Riggs: There really wasn’t a difference other than just wanting it to be different, wanting it to be more soulful, more—I guess in the end wanting it to be a little more punk, a little more proto-metal. And really also wanting to stretch out in areas with like a transcendental, droning kind of vibe on some songs. And more of a baritone, crooning voice on a lot of it, instead of always singing really hard—which I kind of always do live just because I, just kind of lose my mind. But at home, when we’re recording, I can pull it off. So, I think that’s what’s different about it. And I’m definitely—I’m in a different spiritual state of mind writing this record than I was the previous one. The previous one I was really in a bad place mentally. And now I feel like I’ve come to some understanding of God, in the way of it being the universe, and us being God, us being the conscious extension of the universe. We are pieces of the universe. We are the universe standing up and looking at ourselves, and saying, “Wow, that’s beautiful.” And it’s like the universe consciously looking at itself—that is us. And so, to me the only thing that matters is love. We’re all the same thing. And, I kind of, I had an epiphany. I had a spiritual revelation, and that’s how I feel now. So, I think a little of that might be in the music, but I don’t know, it might not. (Laughs)"

Just beautiful.

Yeep- pretty good. Made me cringe when they talked about New Orleans. I think he's right though- a call for blood isn't asking too much.

The best interview that I have come across so far. I love the part where he talks about hearing something and you "gotta have it"..."devouring sound"...that's exactly how I feel about his music...but I don't really take the time to think that he feels that way about others....I mean..he isn't laying on his bed weeping while he listens to Bones Turn To Dust.....he is moved by other artists...and it's so cool to think that all of those other influences, light and dark, come together to make this very smooth thing...
