Marianas Trench Talk Stage Setup and Touring

Alternative Press talked with Mike Ayley of Marianas Trench about touring and the band’s stage setup:

It’s important with the styles for us to try different stuff we can do live so the shows feel fresh. Not just having new music, but even the feel. It definitely gives us direction with video content—not so much the stage as it could be. When we’re doing arenas, we have a little more leeway because we have more production. We still bring a truck full of production for the U.S. tours. The balance is trying to enhance the album theme in the show while still having production that accents the music and doesn’t make the other album singles look out of place. We always do our best to balance that. It’s really cool being able to create a world. It’s neat that anybody who comes to see a Marianas Trench show will see the show and know what album the music is from.
