DTP Interview up at

Paying the Devil His Due: A Conversation with Steve Janiak

M.DREW: You have a new album out, “Fate Is Your Muse.” Describe how this effort is different from other Devil to Pay records?

STEVE JANIAK: I guess first, it’s coming from a more developed and mature space musically and lyrically. I think also that we had been communicating with Ripple Music, so there was some anticipation of something good happening with them at the time we went to record. So, I believe that attitude of performance and overall vibe was very high. Otherwise, we’ve always kind of done the same thing. Work on a bunch of new jams, put ‘em together, sort through them and pick the ones we like the most. It was business as usual on that end.
