Interview with Kyle Odell of Failure Anthem

Hi guys! I wanted to do an interview with one of my good friends, Kyle Odell, from the band Failure Anthem. Kyle and I have known each other for several years now. I do all of his tech work and he produced the second InterTwyneD record, "Soundscapes". He was nice enough to take some time out of his very busy schedule to do an interview for us!
