FUSE TV - Dan Andriano Talks Solo Album, New Alkaline Trio, Matt Skiba & Blink-182

Dan Andriano in the Emergency Room's excellent, evocative second album, Party Adjacent, just dropped. (Fuse premiered it; you listened to it, right?) To celebrate, Alkaline Trio's 38-year-old bassist and co-frontman had a long conversation with Fuse about DJing for his wife and daughter, his bandmate Matt Skiba becoming one third of Blink-182, and the best and worst sides of being a musician for more than two decades. Enjoy our interview with Dan Andriano, stream the album and purchase it here.

Your first solo record was great, but Party Adjacent feels like a real album-album in a way that one didn't.

The major difference is that I did Hurricane Season completely by myself, at my house. So when I started writing songs for this new record I really did not want to go down that road again; it's kind of a hard thing to do and it kind of drove me crazy, just not having anyone to bounce ideas off of. I kept starting and scrapping and restarting. It was just a pretty stressful two months for me.

Working at home's rough sometimes.

Yeah. That totally makes it weird; it's easy to get distracted, there's always stuff to do. I have a family, I've got obviously even more important responsibilities than making records. And so when I'm home, it's easier to be like, "Oh, shit, well I gotta do this. So I'll work on this part later." But when you actually go somewhere to record that's easier to deal with, to get things done in a more efficient manner. But I also didn't know how I was going to get away with doing it somewhere else.

How'd you work it out?

I kind of started tripping out a little bit, and I called Mike Park, who runs Asian Man, and he's just a dear friend. He was very helpful in telling me to just chill. He put me in touch with Jeff Rosenstock [of Bomb the Music Industry!] and the other musicians on the record. I just went up to San Jose, stayed at Mike's mom's house and made a record. It was really fun.
