Hello. My name is Craig Reynolds, I play the drums in a band called Stray From The Path and this podcast is basically a series of relaxed conversations with my friends who are mostly other musicians, artists and/or idiots/legends. Enjoy.
Isaac Hale - Knocked Loose
I caught up with Isaac from Knocked Loose after their US arena tour with $UICIDEBOY$ and ahead of their huge tour with Bring Me The Horizon to talk TikTok, hardcore, laptops in music, ramen - and everything in between.
Matt Garstka - Animals As Leaders
I caught up with Matt Garstka at his home in Nashville to talk everything from fake drummers and lifting to the correlations between the intricacies of specialty coffee and progressive music.
Ali Richardson - Bleed From Within / Sylosis
I get drunk with Ali from Bleed From Within and Sylosis and talk about Bleed's new album Shrine, as well as what makes a perfect drum tech, the joys of Glasgow, beer, and much, much more.
Andrew Hurley - Fall Out Boy
I caught up with Andrew Hurley, drummer of Fall Out Boy and a billion other (heavier) bands to talk about his need to scratch the heavy music itch away from his main gig, CrossFit, soundchecking with Behemoth, our mutual love of Lars Ulrich and Metallica, Dungeons & Dragons - and much more…He also curates THE MOST INSANE dream festival yet.
Pat Sheridan - Fit For An Autopsy
My guest this week on is Pat Sheridan, guitarist of Fit For An Autopsy. I sat down with Pat before FFAA's show in Glasgow to bond about what it's like to work with the insufferable Will Putney (JK JK JK) as well as talking about everything from overcoming the anger of his youth and becoming the best father he can be - to Cardi B's leather pajamas. It gets heavy in a few places. Great dude, great chat.
Josh + Wilkie - Malevolence
I sat down with Wilkie and Josh from Malevolence to talk about the history of their band, what Sleep Token look like, 140bpm Sheffield bassline and also about their new album Malicious Intent (out May 20th). Their dream festival is a real party.

Best podcast in the game. I’ve binged every episode, some over 3 times now. Merch is always on point too!
