La Dispute frontman Jordan Dreyer came by Going Off Track for a philosophical discussion about the band's latest album Rooms Of The House, which centers on the power of inanimate objects and how it relates to a dissolving relationship and shared space. Along the way we discuss the reasons that have kept him living in Michigan, what it's like for the subjects of his songs to learn that some of their darkest moments have been chronicled in La Dispute's lyrics and how he's been able to completely eschew any type of social media profile and what it's like to live a (relatively) distraction-free life while still maintaining a connection with the band's ravenous fan base.

Randy Blythe of Lamb Of God came by Going Off Track to discuss his new memoir Dark Days which chronicles his time spent in prison in Prague and the subsequent manslaughter in 2013. Along the way we discuss what it was like to experience the Kafka-esque drama of being arrested for a murder that you never knew occurred, why Blythe decided to return to Europe for his trial and his need to live in almost total seclusion in order to get the experience down onto paper. As intense as this experience is, there is plenty of levity in this interview and we also discuss Blythe's work as a ballet composer and learn a lot about the evil Christmas character known as Krampus. Blythe also discusses how his sobriety and meditation helped him get through his hard time and with a clear mind."The only way for me to maintain that is not think too much into the future and the past, I thought about that in prison a lot." This podcast will inevitably make you think, too.

British actor and musician Michael Des Barres stopped by Going Off Track to talk about his indefinable career that ranges from replacing Robert Palmer in Power Station to playing Murdoc on MacGyver and everything in between. Along the way we talk about Des Barres' struggles with addiction, his secret to staying relevant decade after decade and how he's been able to maintain a healthy sense of self. "In my current incarnation, it's the truth. I've stripped away all the artifice and my references aren't on my sleeve anymore, I just get up there and be authentic because I've had experience being fake out of self-preservation," he muses at one point. We also explore how he relates to technology, muse about the key to the universe (spoiler alert: it involves loving yourself) and, of course, discuss his new album aptly titled The Key To The Universe. He even performs a song for us at the end... if your mind isn't already blown apart by that point in our discussion.
