Today we had the opportunity to chat with Reese Roper, of the band braveSaintSaturn, about their new release Anti-Meridian. The total runtime is about 45 minutes; topics covered include future plans for the group, stylistic influences, going indie, what’s going in the lives of the band, some Five Iron Frenzy news, and the deep meaning of the number 46. They have a new album coming out that you can buy at www.bravesaintsaturnstore.com.
