Gonna give Caspian some love here.

Phil, what's your favorite song on the new album and why?
Gone In Bloom and Bough.

Hard to explain why... It just hits the right spot for me personally and it crystallized a lot of what we were trying to go for with this record in terms of nuance, depth and restraint.

To Caspian: Why did you guys decide to sign with Triple Crown?
Change is good. Got nothing but love for The Mylene Sheath and always will, but we wanted to switch things up and see what was going on outside of the Post-Rock community with this release and try and catch some fresh ears. And to be perfectly honest, we are huge fans of Moving Mountains and o'brother and felt like it made a ton of sense.

Caspian: If you could name two musical influences from the latest record, who would they be?
They'd be vastly different for all of us. Personally I would say Four Tet and Tim Hecker.

Phil: the subtle vocals on "Gone in Bloom and Bough" are such a great addition. is that something you'd been thinking of adding to Caspian for a while, or did you just feel it was necessary for this particular song?

will we be hearing more cryptic vocals in future Caspian releases?

Gotta say, your listening party was probably the best live experience I had in 2013. Waking Season is crazy good, very much a "get into it at 2am" record as you had suggested.

Cheers for being awesome. Stoked for the 12/7 show.
It just happened organically for this specific track, though we are all very happy with how they came out and will absolutely be incorporating them on future releases without a doubt.

Glad u had fun at the listening party! That was collectively one of the best nights of our bands career up until now.

December 7 = will slam.

what are you all listening to RIGHT NOW, or what was the last song you heard, and how would you rate it (0-100)
Listening to this Andy Stott record "Luxury Problems" for the 1,000,000th time in the last month. Cannot get enough of this album.

Thank you guys for doing this, we really appreciate it.
Waking Season is one of the most phenomenal albums I've heard in quite a while, so also thank you for that.

What songs are you planning on including in your setlist for this tour?
And what are your current favorite TV shows?
Thank u very much for the kind words on the record, that really means so much to us.

Don't get me going on current TV shows. I won't quit.

Currently:
Boardwalk Empire (terrific season 3 about to wrap next week)
Homeland (first 4 episodes were simply mind-blowing, predictably losing some steam now but still solid)

Revisiting:
Sopranos (Season 2)

Planning on re-watching very soon:
Six Feet Under (entire series - it's high time)

Phil, what tunings do you guys typically use? Also, where was the best pizza you've ever gotten?

And a general question to all you guys, how does your songwriting process typically go?

also, any of you guys planning on hitting up Maine any time soon?
Almost exclusively in drop D these days.

Of Foam and Wave is D-A-D-A-A-D.
Akiko is...... something really weird and I can't remember.
Fire Made Flesh is C#-G#-C#-F#-Ab-D#

Sorry - forgot the most important part of this question:

The best Pizza I ever remember consuming was actually at the first Pizzeria on planet Earth named Antica in Naples, Italy.

It very much changed my perspective on life.

Hey Phil, just wanna say that Waking Season is my favorite album this year and one of my favorites of all time. Thanks to you guys, I got into the whole post-rock instrumental music scene. Also, great beer choice in PBR. I want to ask if you guys are gonna come to Dallas, TX anytime soon? Much love from a big fan. Keep kicking ass !!!
Thanks so much man, glad you dig the record!

Will be in Dallas in Feb/March for sure - been too damn long since we've been in Tejas and looking forward to returning. See you then friend-

I don't have time to stay up to date on current shows, but I've recently been introduced to Sherlock, which is on Netflix, and it might be the best show I've ever seen. Check it out next time you've got a long van ride or something.
Sherlock is fucking incredible - Benedit Cumberbatch rules that character.

This one goes out to Caspian. How long will your set be for the Triple Crown tour? And how many songs do you think you guys will be playing, since your songs are pretty long.

Okay, so that's two.
It depends on which show you're planning on attending.
