Aaron Gillespie Used 'Out of the Badlands' Album as Musical Therapy: Interview

The rock singer's recording process helped him recover from a tough personal experience

Aaron Gillespie (Underoath, The Almost and Paramore’s touring drummer), released his latest solo album Out of the Badlands earlier this summer. The singer opened up to Fuse just how important the recording process was to him. Gillespie, who was going through a rocky time in his life, told us:

"I had just gone through a divorce, and that was my way of coming out of it. I was really, really screwed up at the time. That process of making that and the way that it is really helped me through something. So to touch it afterwards and kind of edit it out and make it something it isn't felt fraudulent."

Out of the Badlands was released on Aug. 19, and was recorded and produced by Gillespie himself. It is a collection of stripped renditions of his past work and three new tracks. Click here to listen to “You Don’t Love Me Anymore," which was premiered on Fuse.
