MUTEMATH drummer Darren King discusses the bandís new sound and unique approach to creating Odd Soul, the importance of trust among bandmates, and his religious upbringing.
"We imagined almost that the four guys who were going to play these shows were different guys than us and we were going to do them a big favor by creating music for them that they would have a blast with. We tried to make an album that was instantly fun to play live. That was intentional, but the fact that it took that guitarish turn was just because we got excited about it."
My interview with Patrick Stump can be found here. Stump opens up about his new solo career, the challenges of finding his own voice, being comfortable as a musician, and the past and future of Fall Out Boy.
"Career wise, [going solo] really was nothing to lose. Thereís nothing worse that anyone could say about me as a performer, Iíve heard everything. Thereís nothing worse anyone could assume about my motivations. I think it made the record a little bit more pop to me because I love pop music. Iím not scared of saying it anymore because Iíve already been called a sell out. Iíve already been called the worst things in the world. I donít have guilty pleasures because Iím comfortable with who I am and Iím comfortable with where I am."
