PureVolume recently interviewed Justin Pearson Mars of Retox about the band's new album, the genesis of the band, and where he think technology is leading all of us.
It's just people's people's uneducated opinions on how we sound and our uneducated opinion on how other things are. I read so many times in reviews for the Locust, "I love the keyboards" when it's actually the bass or guitar. That's not the listeners' fault or necessarily a criticism because even with RETOX it's not as obvious as a song with structure from, say, the Ramones. When the Locust released Plague Soundscapes and we kind of blew up a bit people were like, "I can do this with one hand, that's garbage." I wanted to respond, "I'd like to see you try to do that with one hand, that would be pretty outstanding!"
