What has been going on in your life since the split with Chiodos?
BRANDON BOLMER: Since I left, most of my time has been focused on developing Maskarade—that’s pretty much all I do. I spend about 80 percent of my life on a computer, writing music and designing artwork. It’s been challenging trying to start a new project by myself, but above all, I’m happy to be making my dreams come to life.

There are days that I feel very frustrated, lost and unsure of how this will all pan out. When you go from touring a lot to a long stretch of no shows and you’re at home dying to get back out there, it’s hard. I can’t wait to play shows again. It’s going to take a little bit of time, but I’ll get there. There’s no turning back now. There’s nothing else I want to do, and I’ve basically left no other option for myself. I have no back-up plan. It’s scary sometimes, but screw it. I’d rather die doing what I love than sacrifice those things to make a living doing something I hate.
