Music Feeds posted a small portion of their interview with Johnny Christ which touches on the subjects of being influenced by classical music for “Hail To The King,” thinking outside of their usual writing box and heading to Australia in 2014. Stay tuned because the full interview will be released closer to Aug 23rd.
Speaking on what influenced his input into the record, Christ explains that he found himself and his bandmates listening to the works of 18th century composers:
– “Writing wise, I was, believe it or not, listening to a lot of classical music… We were listening to some of the ways the great composers did transitions back in the day; see how it was done in a different sense, not a rock and roll sense. It really helped with the songwriting. We were listening to classics and thought ‘What makes these so good?’”
