Released on March 8th with 3 bonus tracks it’s available for around í£10.99 from HMV, Virgin, MVC, Music Zone and your local official ‘Roadrage’ store. Meanwhile, here’s a few interview snippets with Stephen for you…. Which still active band do you have the most respect for? Why? Even though I don’t like them that much, I’d have to say Pearl Jam. They look like uncles now, but still put out records and tour. And they do it with no music videos or barely any press in the US ‘State Of Love And Trust’ is still a great song though. Which musicians or people are your biggest influences? Bass wise, Zeppelin or Faith No More do it for me. I’ll listen to Stone Temple Pilots one day, Radiohead the next, then Slayer after that. Being open-minded leads to the best possible music in my opinion. Of the bands you have toured with so far, which has been the most memorable? Definitely Cave In. It makes touring much more fun when you actually like the music of a band, and then come to that there all great guys. Lots of respect for those dudes. Definitely my favorite. How long have you been playing for? I started playing guitar when I was 14, cause I wanted to learn that Lenny Kravitz riff, from ‘Are You Gonna Go My Way’. I only picked up a bass 2 years ago to jam in ETID. Do you have a ‘I must own one, one day’ bass? I’m more into guitars then basses. But I’ll say a 1990’s Gibson Grabber Bass. Come on, Gene Simmons played one!
