Screaming Females frontwoman Marissa Paternoster came by Going Off Track to discuss the New Brunswick Grease Truck scene, how bands like Huggy Bear inspired her to start playing music as a teenager and what it why the trio have been so loyal to their label, Don Giovanni Records. We also discuss the way she developed her guitar style and how the Internet has brought us closer together yet made us feel more isolated at the same time. "I definitely engage in social media a lot because of band stuff so it just puts puts this really weird magnifying glass on people that I don't actually interact with on a day to day basis," Paternoster recounts. "It's just so bizarre to think about being a teenager and not having access to that stuff and doing things like sitting in the hallway and staring at the wall because I feel like a lot of my good ideas and a lot of really helpful processing happened from just sitting around and staring at walls" That said, you might want to stare at a wall after listening to Screaming Females' brand new full-length "All At Once" because we're pretty sure it will blow your mind.

Our favorite misanthrope and visual artist Chris Norris aka Steak Mtn. returned to Going Off Track to discuss his new book, “Hunchback ’88” and the laborious process behind its existence. Along the way we also talk about why he’s both thankful and embarrassed by the fact that he’s still involved in punk and hardcore, what it was like growing up in a trailer park run by teenagers and if society will continue its slow downward spiral toward death and destruction. “I think that if nuclear war doesn’t happen it’s either going to turn into “Blade Runner” or it’s going to tank,” he predicts. “But I think it’s going to turn into "Blade Runner" because people don’t think it’s going to end with them; I think that human resilience and the arrogance of the human race will just drag it out. It’ll be like end of the last “Lord Of The Rings” movie where there are like 47 endings and we’ll all be like, “this isn’t over yet?” However it’s not all doom and gloom and along the way we also rank our favorite “Die Hard” movies, discuss the legacy of Bill & Ted and get a rare glimpse into Norris’ shrouded family life. If you dig it, please order Chris’ book using the link below. Hell, you might even make him smile. Order Hunchback ’88 Visit Steak Mountain online

Dashboard Confessional himself came by Going Off Track to discuss cutting his teeth (literally) in the Florida metalcore scene, how he never expected Dashboard Confessional to become a household name and the catalyst behind "Crooked Shadows," his first album in eight years. He also talks about why learning how to take a punch at young age gave him a sense of bravery, the way he's responded to critics throughout the years and how he still carries his punk/hardcore ethic with him whether he's getting pelted with quarters or co-headlining an arena alongside Third Eye Blind. "When we did the Vagrant America tour the bands didn't sound all that much like each other but we had a spirit of intention that was similar," Carrabba says when asked to look back at his emo boom of the early 2000s. "We had this spoken agreement to work together. I would book the southern leg of the tour and Saves The Day would book the East and the Get Up Kids would book the Midwest and when one of us would start to succeed, we would take each other on tour." Finally, we discuss Chris' anti-aging regiment... but you're going to have to listen to the podcast to get that information. Visit Dashboard Confessional online Follow Chris on Twitter
