2013 has been a busy year for the Doylestown, Pennsylvania natives in Balance and Composure. They’re in the spotlight of their scene, harnessing an honest and haunting sound that is hard to come by in today’s leading rock artists. Their newest full-length album, The Things We Think We’re Missing, reached number 51 on the Billboard charts when it was released in September, and that was followed up with a couple of tours of the country. They just finished a tour with another band from Pennsylvania called Title Fight, and they are heading towards the end of their run opening up for Coheed and Cambria. Before they opened up for Coheed in Grand Rapids on 10/26, I was able to sit down with their front man, Jon Simmons, to discuss some tour stories, the idea of emo music, their relationship with their producer Will Yip, Halloween and Breaking Bad.

Having already played at Indie Week Canada and CMJ Music Marathon, Love X Stereo is stopping in Detroit to play with some local like-minded experimental punks.
Hear the full interview on the Asian Music Show on Monday from 8 to 10 PM (interview at 9 PM). Frontwoman Annie Ko talks about the current tour, the band, the new GLOW EP, and their upcoming billing at next year’s South By Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas.
