Bouncing Souls guitarist Pete Steinkopf came by Going Off Track with guest host Benny Horowtiz (The Gaslight Anthem) to discuss how the Souls have managed to span almost three decades and still remain not only relevant but beloved by countless fans and peers. Along the way we discuss the way Asbury Park has changed, what it was like touring in a box-truck and riding motorcycles. We also discuss how Steinkopf now has his own studio where he records up-and-coming bands, what it was like playing guitar solos for Hot Water Music and his old East Village haunts like the Holiday Cocktail Lounge, (immortalized in the Bouncing Souls song of the same name). Oh, we also discuss the Souls' tenth studio album “Simplicity” which comes out this week. "The whole thing about this record is that we wanted to get back to the live setting so we did it all live takes," Steinkopf explains when asked how the band approached their latest release. Young bands take note, you could learn a few things from The Pete. Bouncing Souls Hear the new Bouncing Souls song "Up To Us" Have Pete producer YOUR next album

Mikey Freedom Hart came by Going Off Track with guest host Benny Horowitz (The Gaslight Anthem) to discuss his solo project Ex Reyes, what it's like playing live with everyone from The Cranberries to Bleachers along with the intricacies of sandwich culture. We also get nostalgic for the grunge movement, discuss why clowns are scary and wonder what it would be like to be a Juggalo. "I chose the name Ex Reyes because it has a lot to do with having a lot of New York and New Orleans influence in me as a musician, specifically Spanish music of the seventies so I wanted to access that reference somehow," Hart says when asked how he got his solo project's moniker. But don't worry about the pronunciation, this podcast is all about the vibes - and there are some pretty good ones here, folks. Ex Reyes on Soundcloud Ex Reyes on Twitter

White Lung frontwoman Mish Way and guest host Dan Ozzi (Noisey) came by Going Off Track HQ to discuss how political correctness has gotten out of hand, why the Internet is slowly destroying our social skills and how we all keep our respective sanity by not reading the comments sections. We also discuss the upcoming election, Mish's love of daytime television shows such as Jenny Jones, family and what it must be like to date Taylor Swift... even if we don't have any personal experience with that. Oh and if you were planning on moving to Mish's home country of Canada if Trump wins the election, think again. “It's not that easy to immigrate, be quiet, your going to sit on your hands and we'll watch it unfold,” Mish explains at one point and we could not agree more. But this summary can't truly do Mish justice so just listen and we're certain you'll be won over by her caustic charm. If you're not, you're probably a troll anyway. White Lung Mish on Twitter

The author of the new memoir Kanye West Owes Me $300 stopped by the podcast with guest host Vanessa Bayer (SNL, Trainwreck) to discuss his unbelievable true story of being a teenaged rap sensation. He also talks about the time he almost got into a fight with the band Metro Station at an awards show, what it was like to turn down a briefcase with $50,000 (and what it looked like in person) and how Karp's brain tumors helped inspire him to make his past public. We also discuss Gallery1988 his amazing Los Angeles art space, why Henry Winkler would play Karp's father in the movie adaptation of his life and drop countless of pop culture-references ranging from Blossom to the Mario Brothers in the process. Oh, finally, we explore why Shia LeBeouf might actually be a legitimate artistic genius. No, for real.
