New interviews with Josh Evans, the co-producer of Gigaton, are now available online.
“The band was ready to experiment with something different, to do things they wanted to try for some time without having had the opportunity. I contributed to this process, but the credit is theirs. I was just in the right place at the right time.” – Josh Evans
“They no longer wanted to get together in the hall, turn on the amps, play and record, even if some piece born like this is there, for example Who Ever Said that basically they are the ones who play together in the same room even if then Mike put some strange atmospheres experimenting with the E-Bow.” – Josh Evans
