    Coheed and Cambria’s Claudio Sanchez on Infinite Outcomes and Multiverse Storytelling

    Coheed and Cambria’s Claudio Sanchez on Infinite Outcomes and Multiverse Storytelling

    Coheed and Cambria’s Claudio Sanchez sits down with Kyle Meredith to take us into Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind, which continues the "Amory Wars" storyline.
    Sanchez discusses going deeper into this new story thread while basing much of the foundation on his own experiences of being a dad, as well as creating a misunderstood character that gives a nod to The Who’s Tommy and the new musical territory that the band experimented with.
    The rocker also talks about covering Kiss, Britney Spears, and their sequel song to Rick Springfield’s "Jessie’s Girl"; seeing film and television catch up to his style of fantasy storytelling; and feeling like an outsider for over 20 years.

    Foals’ Yannis Philippakis on Making a Dance Record with a Deeper Meaning

    Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis drops by Kyle Meredith With… to tell us about the band’s latest album, Life Is Yours, and the experimental mood they found themselves in that led to a more synth-driven record.

    Three Days Grace on Explosions, Algorithms, and Their 25th Anniversary

    Three Days Grace bassist Brad Walst joins Kyle Meredith to dig into the Canadian band’s seventh studio album, Explosions, which found them writing separately for the first time during lockdown.
    Walst also discusses the anger heard within the songs and finding ways to continue to tap into that emotion, the big searching questions that populate the lyrics, and the background on “I Am the Weapon." He then goes on to share the story of making the video for “Lifetime,” which shines a light on Mayfield, Kentucky (with proceeds going to folks impacted by the December 2021 tornadoes), and having the new LP speak to their past on their 25th anniversary year.
