In a great interview with New Zealand news site “3news”, Chester talks about using guitars on the new album, his current phone, the lack of fucking awesome hard rock songs, Nine Inch Nails, being a member of the Stone Temple Pilots, the features on The Hunting Party, touring, and…much more!
What were your three great records? What do you count them as?
Well, the three records I am referring to that we’ve released in the last six years. You know, I think A Thousand Suns…
I love A Thousand Suns, man!
Dude, it’s one of those things I feel I can’t really say how I truly feel about it, because it’s a record that I made. But, if I was outside of the band and just a fan of music, I would say that is one of my favourite records of the last 10 years. And then I really do think Living Things was another solid batch of great songs. I mean, there were some great songs on that record. It felt like it was almost necessary to do that album, to be comfortable to go this deep into this record so heavy. And this record that no one has heard yet, I think it’s just a statement, man. It’s just as statement. And as I said, I still kind of think of us as ‘the new guys’, like we’re just getting started. So I wouldn’t be surprised if we keep touring and keep making records, and keep touring and making records, until…
We run out of oil! [laughter]
Yeah: Dead or out of oil. Who knows what’s going to come first.
Then we’ll have to move to a new planet and suck off of its resources!
