In the wake of Flickerstick's reunion (long after Soulcracker, Harlow, and Josh Dodes threw in their towels), we have decided to break down this insanely dated time-capsule of what-the-f*ckedness and talk with other touring musicians, friends, and music journalists about what they got wrong and what they got right. For this episode Ian, Nat, and Ross are forced to close this chapter of their lives with the finale episode(s) and last battle of the bands.   You can watch every episode of the show for free on youtube HERE.  Catch up and catch the magic.

Bands on the Ruin: Atlanta (w/ Ben Chisholm [Chelsea Wolf and more])

In 2001 VH1 debuted the show Bands on the Run.  It was a massive hit, yet it only lasted one season...  We felt like it needed much more attention.

For this episode Ian, Nat, and Ross are joined on this trip to Atlanta by the incredibly talented Ben Chisholm.  He might be the only person we know that has been seen in concert by a member of Harlow, he plays with Chelsea Wolfe, and has worked on some of the best music out there today, indluding Jaye Jayle, The Armed, the soundtrack to X, Mutoid Man, and more.

Jeff Everett - Rockets Are Red

No project is complete without a visual component.  Album covers, show posters, marketing materials...  All of that is a crucial element to every release and campaign.  Jeff Everett (Rockets Are Red, El Jefe Design) is a dude that has been intimately involved in the visual side of music for decades and somehow ONLY gets better with time as he branches out into film and wrestling as well.   Jeff came by to talk about the business side of the music business, the visual side of the art form, the existential crisis moments every artist goes through, pulling your head out of tough spots and so much more. His ability to eloquently describe these things and beautifully illustrate these things is the reason he is always working with bands like The Foo Fighters, Gaslight Anthem, Against Me!, The Bouncing Souls, Jawbreaker, Clutch; wrestlers like Dalton Castle, Danhausen, Luchabros, Jericho, and more; celebrating films like Point Break, Stephen King's IT, Before Sunrise, and more... The dude just does it all and is finally letting us all celebrate the journey in book form. You can pre-oreder and support the book at let-it-bleed.com Buy prints, shirts, posters and more at rockets-are-red.com   Keep up with his online content and more at is instagram:  @rocketsarered   Book Kickstarter kicks off Valentines Day   March 4th - Jeff will be at a Pop Up Gallery Show and Book Discussion at Lost Origins Gallery in Mt Pleasant in DC.

Evan Phelps (Holy Fawn)

Holy Fawn expands on their brooding yet lush soundscapes with their new album "Dimensional Bleed".  They have been a constant listen for me for quite some time.  "Death Spells" delivered earth shaking tones with a blend of post-rock, shoegaze, and black metal sounds.  They have only expanded that unique sound with this epic new album available everywhere on Friday. Evan (guitar) swung through Pudgemont on his way to band practice to talk about the evolution of their sound, the electronic elements and orchestration, why every monitor engineer loves working with them, and so much more. Keep up with all things Holy Fawn, and be sure to scope their tour dates at their website.

"How to Make a Killing in Film" - w/ Josh Newton and Dan Sneddon

What are the scenes that traumatized you as a kid?  The ones that jolted you out of your chair, left you in wonder, made the entire theater lose their minds?  We are talking about the most killer scenes in films we all love with some of the most killer musicians from some of the most killer bands of all time.  Josh Newton (of Shiner, Every Time I Die, and more) and Dan Sneddon (Kowloon Walled City, No Lights, and more) join Ross and Ian to talk about cinema's greatest on-screen kills.

Be sure to check out Dan's new jam Brass Taxxx "Dogpile" wherever you listen to music. Josh is going to be hitting the road with Shiner later this year, and you would be a fool to miss those shows.

I rarely get to hang with the dude these days, but I can still put on ANY Every Time I Die record and just laugh at how hilariously heavy and unrelenting that band was.  I was always envious of his playing, his energy, and his artistic talents aside from guitar. This is a truly great conversation with Jordan about all things ETID, all this post ETID, all things that pushed and inspired ETID, working with Kurt Ballou, his work with John Taffer, his love of Buthole Surfers, Slayer, and Converge... But, most importantly how the impact of that band's legacy has impacted his life since its demise, how he processed the very public dissolve and what he's done to pick himself back up.  In addition to new music in the works with 3 former ETID dudes, Jordan has launched an insane cameo page that you should check out, and a hub for all of his projects from art to airbnb!   Head over to https://jordanbuckley.xyz/ for all things Jordan.  From Shirts, to original art prints, to Every Time I Die tour posters, and more.  Not a bit of shinfo to be found on that page. There is much more to this conversation (over an hour of ad-free extras and all the stuff we can't say in public) over at the Rigs of Dad Patreon Page where you can also hear more unedited interviews with previous guests, patreon exclusives, and beyond!

Filmmaker Riley Stearns (Dual, The Art of Self Defense, Faults)

Riley Stearns is a writer, director, jiu jitsu brown belt, metal-head, gear dork, cold brew addict, and so much more.  His feature debut "Faults" was a nice introduction to what would become one of the most unique voices in film today.  His follow-up, "The Art of Self Defense" is a movie that Ross regularly credits as the film that made him laugh the hardest he has ever laughed in a theater.  Riley has now arrived at his third feature "DUAL", which might be his most signature film to date.  It debuted at Sundance, and will be available in theaters April 15th.  It's the existential black comedy we all need. Riley joins Ross and Ian to talk about the creative process behind "Dual", honing his unique dialogue, working with folks like Aaron Paul and Karen Gillan, working with Emma Ruth Rundle, building the Full of Hell cinematic universe, and so much more.   If you are a film dork, a music dork, a gear dork, a jiu jitsu dork, or anything of the sorts, there is something in here for you.

Philip Jamieson (Caspian, Dreamtigers, and The Movie Loft podcast) Returns

Philip Jamieson of Caspian and Dreamtigers RETURNS for one of the nerdiest episodes to date.  We talk about all the nerdy gear that goes into some Caspian riffs, their upcoming vengeance tour, and most fascinatingly: how Caspian goes about sequencing their albums.  Why is that last one so crucial?  Because we are talking in depth about some nerdy comic book characters in film.  Not necessarily the best comic book films, but the best representation of comic book characters in film.   As a bassist, Phil has proven himself to be VERY qualified to talk about film.  But as part of an instrumental band, he doesn't have too much to say about comics...  This means that he is giving Ian and Ross the task of fitting their choices into HIS sequencing demands.   Nerdy enough for you?   All of this makes Phil an incredibly welcome addition to the cast on this episode!  We talk X-men, Batman, Superman, Scott Pilgrim, and so much more. If you are a casual fan or a film obsessive, you will love to hear these dudes (whose only qualifications are playing bass) chat about all things film in this very special episode of Film Basics with Bassists That Love Film AFTER a good old fashioned interview. Be sure to keep up with all things Philip via @caspianofficial @dreamtigersmusic and his own film podcast @themovieloftpodcast on instagram and be sure to check out Caspian as they embark on some long-overdue tour dates. To hear us get hyper-specific about gear, take a deep dive into unlocking some Chase Bliss Audio stuff, go DEEP in Phil's analysis of the new "The Batman" film, and hear what we would LOVE to see Matt Reeves further explore in this franchise, the extended version of this conversation is available at  www.patreon.com/rigsofdad, OR just download the Patreon ap, search for Rigs of Dad, and you can support creators like me and so many more in the process!   Ian dropped some new tunes over at The Interesting Times Gang's Bandcamp that you should click.

"Don't Cut Out the Editor" - A Celebration of Film Editing

The Academy has sadly decided to several categories from the Oscar Broadcast, and it's just a bummer.  We've covered the magic of film scores in depth with J. Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines, etc) in a previous episode, and no we are celebrating the art of editing  with a selection of films that we find to be great examples of art in editing. All of your favorite films, songs, shows, and stories are the result of sold editing.  Sometimes the editing of a film is just as important as the script and the direction.  We talk about how it's used to enhance scope in storytelling, how it's used to amplify the scares in horror, and how it is one of the best comedic devices in comedy.   We discuss the works of Kubrick, Fincher, Nolan, Adam McKay, and more.   If you want to hear the UNEDITED version of this chat, you can hear that and so much more over at the Rigs of Dad Patreon.  This also includes extended interviews with my guests like Kurt Ballou (Converge), Greg Edwards (Failure, Autolux), and much more.  Plus you will hear us talk about some movie news of the week and review films like the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Kimi, and more.

Brian Cook (Russian Circles, Sumac, These Arms Are Snakes, Botch, Torment & Glory, and more)

Brian Cook was the first ever guest on this podcast, and he is back with a vengeance...  Some of that is true.  But regardless of his thirst for revenge, Brian has had an insane two years since we last spoke.  Since then he has released a solo album which you should listen to here, These Arms Are Snakes had a reunion, Russian Circles recorded a new album, they toured with Korn and System of a Down, they had all their gear stolen, and so much more... This is not the traditional Rigs of Dad long-form interview either... This is a glimpse into all the tangents and derailed conversations that always happen with every guest during the Lightning Crashes Lightning Round.  There was simply too much stuff to cut out, so I let a lot of that role for the release.  If you want to hear the whole thing, head over to the Rigs of Dad Patreon Page where you can hear that and all other extended interviews and beyond. Be sure to listen to listen to any and all of Brian's music wherever you get your tunes.  Russian Circles can be heard here. Sumac can be heard here. And you'll just have to listen to the episode to find out where you can hear These Arms and Botch next!!
