Just who is Justin Symbol? Well, sidestepping the long-winded existential philosophical elaboration, he is a unique electronic/rock/industrial musician who resides in Brooklyn, New York. Dubbed "The King of Negativity," Symbol is known for not only bad-ass tunes, but also for being seriously boundary-pushing. Think Marilyn Manson, the toilet scene from 'Trainspotting,' Nine Inch Nails, the movie 'Requiem for a Dream,' Skinny Puppy and Atari Teenage Riot, The Garbage Pail Kids, and heroine-era Ministry, and you've got something like Justin Symbol. Fucked up? Yep! But we LOVE it that way. Check out this er... unique interview helping to promote his new release, V Ω I D H E A D.

Miss May I, the Troy, Ohio-based metalcore quintet, released their fourth studio album, Rise of the Lion, on April 25, 2014 via Rise Records. Boasting a sick mix of thrash, groove and various other metallic elements, Rise of the Lion is a metal recording of monstrous proportions. Currently touring the U.S. with Affiance, the band will play shows leading up to their performance on stage 003 at this year's Knotfest. We checked in with guitarist BJ Stead who humored us with some answers to some of our less-than-professional interview questions.

The thrash metal monsters have a BIG album in store, one that even features a special guitar solo from Metallica's Kirk Hammett, and it's no wonder than that they've got Souza back to help lead the charge. In true rock and roll fashion, Souza humoured us and dropped some amazing answers in this no-holds-barred interview.
