Gay For Johnny Depp Talk Triple Threat

Gay For Johnny Depp have spoken to Rock Sound about their upcoming anthology as they get ready for the Triple Threat Tour.

Gay For Johnny Depp have spoken to Rock Sound about their upcoming anthology and why they’ve decided now is the time unleash it on the world.

Amusingly titled ‘Manthology: A Tireless Exercise In Narcissism Featuring Gay For Johnny Depp’s Excellent Cadavers’, guitarist Sid Jagger explained:

“We’d recorded this brand new EP called ‘The Ski Mask Orgy’. That was done and set to go but it kept getting delayed because we were still in talks with different labels about who was going to do it. While that was going on, all of our previous material went out of print. The previous labels we’d been with – bless them – are unfortunately no longer in business and it’s very difficult for people to get some of our records, especially the early stuff. We’d been getting a lot of emails from people saying, ‘Where can I find this?’ and we don’t even have them on the road to sell!”

Jagger went on to give us an insight into how the band’s sound has developed on ‘The Ski Mask Orgy’.

“Eighty per cent of it sounds in a similar vein, but we’ve taken some liberties to push things in a new direction, which I hope we always do. It’s still aggressive without a doubt, but I think musically we’ve tried to add a few more layers, especially on my end with the guitars. There are some choral backing vocals as well – I don’t know if you can hear them because the music’s pretty ugly, but it’s there!”
