Being a band guy on the road, gear heads tend to find each other. For me, Matt Hoopes of Relient K is always on the top of my list for guys I like to talk about pedals with. Now he's creating his own pedals, so we go in-depth about the technical aspects of what distortion is and the components inside pedals.Links & Sponsors:breakitdownpod.comFacebookEmery Tour: emerymusic.comRockabilia: rockabilia.com code PCJABBERJAW1981 Inventions Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode #010 - Matt Hoopes, Guitarist/Co-Founder of Relient K
The Sixth Degree Podcast
Hey everyone, it's a new episode of The Sixth Degree! We've been busy this fall livin' life, being dads and rooting for the Indians in the World Series, but we wanted to get this episode out before it became completely irrelevant. And because it's an interview with Matt Hoopes, guitarist and co-conspirator behind the excellent rock & roll band Relient K! During Ryan's more impressionable years, Relient K was an up & coming Christian pop-punk band who made their bones in and around Northeast Ohio. After nearly 20 years together, they're still out making great music and touring the country playing shows for thousands of fans. We talk with Matt about their latest record Air For Free, what it's like touring while also being a dad, the state of post-Tooth & Nail Christian music, his new pedal company 1981 Inventions, oh, and the pretty hilarious way that Ryan met the Matt's back in 1998. We had a really fun time hanging with Matt and recording this episode, we hope you all enjoy it too! P.S. - Our apologies for the sub-standard audio quality! We recorded this in the back of Relient K's bus while both the A/C and bus were running, which is not an ideal audio recording environment. We've tried our best to remove the noise but at the end of the day we're still, ya know, amateur podcasters. Thanks for bearing with us!
