Gary Jarman has done an interview with Vanyaland in preparation for The Cribs's show at Brighton Music Hall this evening. In the interview, Jarman opens up about playing in an abandoned mill, why family bands don't succeed, and what it was like to record with The Cars' Ric Ocasek.

"I had DJ'd a goth/industrial club in Rochester several times throughout 2012 and 2013 (with our now tour manager Bud) and the patrons there were always fascinating. I remember playing that 'they will not control/degraaaaaaade us' Muse song and everyone losing their minds. We wanted to capture a bit of that spirit as well."

Joywave has posted the first part of their Huffington Post series, "Why Be Credible When You Can Be Incredible?". The series is a track-by-track guide through the band's new LP, complete with recording tips, industry insights, and an outrageous sense of humor.
