You never expect someone to remember you. I know I’ve said that a bunch of times now, but it’s true. I’ve met Chris on a few occasions, I even put on a few shows for The Flatliners over the years, but I still didn’t think he’d remember me.

He did though, and because of that this interview actually comes across like two old friends sitting down for a good chat. And for the first time ever, I even got offered a beer, which is one of the nicest things he could do it.

Chris is an awesome guy. We could’ve chatted for days because this dude loves to talk, which is only a good thing as far as I’m concerned. He’s actually really good at talking too, so I’m hoping that he starts his own podcast one day. I certainly think he’s cut out for it.

The Flatliners are probably my favourite band. In many ways, it feels like I’ve grown up with them, and I appreciate the way their music has shifted over the years. That shift, the way our tastes and feelings change, and how we change as people, is something we talk about at length in this interview.

We also discuss moving to Rise Records, if the band ever considered releasing the music themselves, and what keeps them going now that they’ve been a band for 15 years.
