These are the types of interviews that I enjoy. The type that turns into a conversation. And this was a good interview to say the least. Today I’m speaking with Christian Blakeli of the fresh new metalcore act Renaissance Kids. He and his partner in crime, Nikko Vincent, have really tapped into a gold mine with their brilliant new EP “Another Life”. Keep in mind that this band is only four months old. I’ve left the bulk of the conversation unedited in order to let you know how well planned Renaissance Kids has their future. Enjoy!

“Another Life” will be released November 24th. Pre-order HERE.
