I had the opportunity to sit down with Waylon Reavis, the lead singer of “A Killer’s Confession”, before their show in Columbus, Ohio on 12/23/17. Waylon sat down with me and discussed the tour, album, and the future of the band.
When I last saw A Killer’s Confession you guys were here with Nonpoint, how did that tour go?
Amazing! Best tour of the year flat out. Nonpoint guys were awesome! The guys from Nonpoint are really professional and know what it’s like to be on the road. That knowledge really helped out the guys in my band.
Waylon, what fueled your passion to start this project after leaving Mushroomhead?
I took a year off and worked with kids! We were doing a group discussion about following your hearts and dreams and one of the kids said, “what about you Mr. Reavis? I know who are! Why are you not following your dreams?”
How did you go about finding band members for AKC and putting together the project?
I used the Internet! I didn’t know anyone other than JP Cross (bass player) who I’ve known for years, he was the guitarist in my band 3 Quarters Dead. Matthew Trumpy my guitarist is another reason I am back because of his song writing!
I know that Brian “Head” Welch had a part in this album, how did you go about connecting with Brian?
We’ve been friends for over 20 years. When I was with Mushroomhead we opened for Korn in Austrailia at the Soundwave Festival and that’s where I first met him. Then later on we played the Mayhem Festival with Korn and formed a great friendship.
Now that the album has been out for a while, how has the response been?
Good! I’m releasing music so fast these days! I would love to have a new album every year for the next 10 years!
How has this current tour been?
This tour has gone great! This is the last show then I’m off to NYC to bring in the New Year at Time Square.. never done it before!
Future plans for the band? Touring? Album?
Well, the only thing I can tell you is that something BIG is coming in 2018, stay tuned!
