Update: Listen to the interview here. Updated
Here are some highlights from Zane’s interview with Nikolai, which aired on Feb. 21.
Where was Comedown Machine recorded?
Electric Lady Studios.
On the recording process.
It was kind of almost all done together at Electric Lady. All five of us, hashing out the record.
Why Electric Lady Studios?
It’s a legendary studio and it’s not far for all of us. Expect for Nick, who lives in LA… They also liked the engineer there.
What was the starting point?
I think we got off tour and we were all in New York and we had these songs… We had all this stuff to work on. We rehearsed at Electric Lady, and it was working. So we just went with it.
On the tour…
I don’t know.
(Ed. note: This answer, combined with the fact that they haven’t been announced for any festivals, is not a good thing.)
Would you like to tour?
I would love to, yes.
Mood in the band?
Yeah, that’s tough. You go up and down… I feel good about it, and I feel good about the atmosphere in the band and I hope it continues.
And here’s Niko talking on the phone.
