As the clock got closer to 6, we didn’t think Anthony Gonzalez of M83 would be able to chat with us. Lo and behold at 5:52 he surprised us and spoke with Jason Thomas about guitarist Steve Vai, adding new vocalists into the mix, and making a fun album.
“I wanted to come back with something less epic and less grand…I think I’m starting to be famous for grand music and I wanted to come up with a fun album and maybe more human.”
If you missed them this weekend, fear not! M83 comes back for an XRT show at the Aragon on October 20th.
