Like Us? Why Not Become a Supporting Member

We don’t have a sponsored post this week, so I thought I would take a quick moment and just plug our supporter membership program. Basically, if you like this website, like reading our content, and like hanging out in our forums, this is a way you can help us. It comes with some cool perks, such as:

  • No ads in the forums.
  • Cover photos and a custom dark theme mode for the forums.
  • An exclusive supporters only forum where we do a lot of Q&As and talk about cool bands, rumors, and all sorts of fun stuff.
  • and more

As I wrote when I first launched this website: I think the best way to make sure something you love stays around is to support it. I’ve been blown away by just how many people have jumped on board and are helping make this website one of the best experiences of my life. We’re a little over four months in and I can honestly say that waking up to work on this project is fulfilling in a way I haven’t felt in years. So thank you, all of you!

Interview: Aaron Gillespie

Aaron Gillespie

Last week, I was able to sit down and chat on the phone with one of my favorite songwriters, Aaron Gillespie. You may know him from his work as the drummer/singer for Underoath, or as the singer/songwriter behind The Almost, but Aaron has also just released his stellar debut full-length solo album Out of the Badlands. It came out on August 20th, and I think it showcases everything I love about Aaron’s writing style. We sat down to discuss the record in depth, as well as Underoath’s recent reunion, and many more topics.
