Death From Above
A live record takes the exact time it takes to play the show and a studio record takes more time than is conceivable in your wildest fantasies and beyond.
My favorite songs to perform are "White Is Red" and "Government Trash". Both for wildly different reasons. "White Is Red" is a character driven song and allows me to inhabit some really emotional moments. When we nail it, it's transcendent. "Government Trash" is a wild ride with some pretty heavy technical moments that strikes the perfect balance between rodeo and symphony.
Comedy specials and documentaries.
Communion. A real rock show. Expect to abandon yourself and connect with us and everyone in the room. Records are magical in that they span space and time where shows are real life. Sharing the air. It's church.
Watching Sonic Youth completely command both noise and melody and watching Murray Lightburn from The Dears get possessed by demons.

The timing of it. We’ve been working in the studio writing new songs and so we’ll be able to finally play some new songs for fans live before the album comes out. That’s always fun playing things live before people have heard the record.
Leah has, she lived in NYC for a while right before joining BRMC and she was a fan, got to see them over there. I dig their records but somehow we never were in the same city at the same time playing shows, so we missed out.
Ha, we were talking about doing something together live possibly, but I can’t let the cat out of the baggy.
Pete probably needs his Starbucks. I need the tastiest burgers. And Leah always just wants to get out of there fast, and to the gig more than anything.
I traveled around with my dad’s band The Call when I was just a kid, so I remember them touring with Peter Gabriel on the Shock the Monkey tour. That was fun, I remember liking Peter’s face all painted up like a monkey. I was really into monkeys back then.
There are a lot actually, over the years we've had some of the most diehard fans in the states that travel from show to show with us. Sometimes you even forget that they aren’t officially on the tour working or something because they are usually more punctual and reliable than our own crew even. But they’re always good to see once we start up again. Some of them move on over the years and like have a baby or something and then don’t travel as hardcore, but most will still come out at least in their hometown and catch up.
