Today Matt is joined by Ian D’Sa from rock band Billy Talent…their new album Afraid of Heights just hit #1 on the Billboard album chart in their home country of Canada—knocking Drake out of the top spot. It’s their fifth studio album and the first without original drummer Aaron Solowoniuk who was sidelined when he suffered a multiple sclerosis relapse last year—friend of the band and Alexisonfire drummer Jordan Hastings filled in behind the kit on the recording of the album. We’ll talk about that along with the making of the new record which Ian produced! If you like what you hear, make sure to subscribe on iTunes or wherever you download your podcasts!
