Bio: As a boy, I spent my days in and around the apple and cherry orchards; they were the perfect cover for the misadventures of any youngster eager to explore the waking lands of his imagination, lost in parallel rows of trees and water lines. Autumn, you could find me alone, poking at dead beehives... See Full Bio

Q: How did you decide to do a video album? And, how did the comics story work its way into the project?
A: We've always wanted to do a live album, as a way to introduce people to the band, who haven't had a chance to see a live show. I decided to bring the studio into my home, where we rehearse, eat, hang out etc, so you could see us in our "native" environment, as it were. The camera crew, microphones, cables, guests, and the bed in the corner and the food on the table, are all a constant part of our band's life, so we wanted to bring folks into our house, to show them what we do. As for the comics story, we've known writer John Castlerock for a long time, and since he's started writing for us, he's been generating this larger world surrounding the themes, values, and moods of RDh's music. We found a wonderful artist to bring one of these stories to life, and it's become a major theme within our band culture, to combine it with comics and have both mediums express the artistic values of the music and the writing. It was a natural extension for us, really. Scott Angle, who illustrated the story in the videos, also did the album artwork on our "Giants" EP at the end of 2011, and he's super excited to keep drawing more of RDh's storylines, and combined with Castlerock's writing, it makes a pretty powerful 1-2-3 punch, not really seen in much independent music these days!
