Writing 24 songs to correspond with the 24 hours of the day is an ambitious plan in anyone's eyes, but combined with fronting the Grammy Award-winning rock band Switchfoot, and starring in a film centring on the touring life of said band, makes it seem like a gargantuan task. The Wonderlands, a staggered release of four EPs all relevant to different points in the day (Dawn, Sunlight, Darkness, Shadows) sees Jon craft the acoustic, toned-down music he favours on his solo output with a fluidity that gives the impression of the movement of time. SPB asked Jon about how deep the existence of The Wonderlands goes, what it was like to be filmed for Fading West, his views on ...

Coalesce is a band that has always been pushing the boundaries of music. From their earliest days with Earache and Edison in the 90's through their current phase as a band today, they have reinvented the sound of hardcore with their off-kilter song structures and the one-of-a-kind vocal assault of Sean Ingram. The band recently reemerged with a new 7", a self-funded and self-released retrospective DVD, and a mini-tour to promote both. Scene Point Blank spoke with guitarist Jes Steinegar about the bands return, recent tour, and what to expect in the future from Coalesce. Scene Point Blank: Why ...
