You go to Fairfax Street, that is where they have all the really hip restaurants really cool stores. The pop up shops different hip hop artists and people doing shops there's always a crazy line down the street with people trying to get to the supreme store it's pretty instering.

TM - Your releasing your new album Undying Light next week what can fans expect?
SC - Fans can expect something very dark heavy and diverse. We try to make a sound that was cohesive through the whole record give the record a character but explore that type of sound in diffrent ways.
TM - What was your writing and recording process for Your new album Undying Light?
SC - We write and get all the stuff ready by ourselves then we record The guitars and bass guitar at our own studio and get all that ready. Then when we get that done and we take it to Mark Woods who has a studio in Nashville then he records drums and vocals and re amps the guitars. We have recorded and mixed and masters it took 3 months to do the whole album.
TM - How do you pick the final selection of songs for your record?
SC - We will get 15 ideas out there songs that are half done or completely done and then we get the vibe of what we will write for and at that point it's like figuring out the balance of the record whether it will be fast and intense or slower.
TM - You support a Black Dahlia Murder through the US what was your favourite part of this tour?
SC - It was the second time touring with them and it was really cool to get to know them and seeing the outlook on everything and how to do business. There is a lot of memories in hanging out in the green room and just talking about stuff it's always good to hang out with them.
