It’s in the embryonic stages. I have my studio, The Blasting Room, Stephen lives in Tulsa, and he has a studio too. Milo even has a real small recording apparatus in his basement. Karl still lives by me. So I went in a couple of weeks ago and recorded, so we got 11 songs done, just the drums. We’ll be passing those around, Stephen will be putting guitars on ‘em, Karl will be putting bass on ‘em, Milo will be singing on ‘em. We’ll get rolling but it’s not gonna be like “Oh it’ll be done in a month!” It’s gonna take us several months.
Riot Fest has expanded its festival to a Sept. 8 date in Brooklyn, a Sept. 9 date in Toronto, and a Sept. 22 date in Dallas. The posters for each of the festivals - spoiler alert: they all feature the Descendents and other awesome bands - are in the replies. Tickets will be available on Ticketmaster. Is Riot Fest making a name for itself as the best festival in America?
A grainy video featuring a goofy, wild-haired youth covering The Descendents has surfaced on youtube. Wait a minute - that looks like Ridgecrest High School student Mark Hoppus! See for yourself in the replies.
