Was that seriously the only part of the interview people found interesting? I thought that was the most boring part. The rest of the interview however were very intriguing and informative. I never knew Chester considers the band to be Mike's band. After 11+ years together, how can he still feel that way? I guess Mike does play a larger role than i thought. And good for Chester for still staying sober. Way too many people in his position loose their life to substance abuse.
And they are very bored off playing the old songs over again. If they really are, they would do me and them a favour by replacing most songs from Meteora with more ATS material and that would solve that problem.
i like it all, specially:
Make the music 'strange and boring'. Avoid trying to sound 'beautiful.'
I believe the band's main goal is to do that thing .... in every upcoming album. And when they say "new ideas and lyrics" your last comment summarizes it all.
A politically charged speech. In every song. And then put one of those speeches on the front cover of the album. And name the album after a speech. And replace all documentary audio with clips from speeches that have no context at all.

Hahahaha oh God there's no way this album cycle can top the last one.
After finally getting round to reading that article I'm thoroughly impressed and excited! What Chester had to say intrigues me & I hope we get a new album next year if all goes well.
But anyway, the same thing was posted on Ultimate-guitar, and as you'd expect it was flooded with comments of trolls and nu-metal fan boys. Though I'm kinda used to the haters of the new LP, one thing that keeps cropping up is a few people thinking ATS sounds like pop & club music...
Not that I'm against or loath the genres, but seriously? If nightclubs played music like ATS I'd be out on a rave every week!
