On this episode we catch up with Chris Terry, better known as CT. He handles lead vocals in Rwake, Iron Tongue, and Ash of Cedars, and is the newest member of Deadbird, who have a new album in the works. Subjects include the synchronicity of touring, hugely successful West Memphis 3 benefits, writing lyrics, Black Oak Arkansas, and a bunch more.

This episode is 96% riffs, 4% fists.
