Exclusive Track-by-Track Rigged: The Story Changes, Never Daydream

Fans of Hawthorne Heights should probably be aware of The Story Changes – a side project of guitarist Mark McMillon and touring drummer Christopher Lee, as well as Let Go bassist Chris Serafini. The band recently reissued a deluxe version of their 2014 EP Never in Daydream, and we’ve got a pretty cool exclusive track-by-track rigged for each of the songs – running down every piece of gear used to make em.

I rarely see more proggy/tech bands keep this detailed notes about what exactly they used in the studio – let alone punk bands – and it’s cool to listen along and get a sense of how exactly the band achieved every tone on the EP. So check out the tunes below and nab your copy of the EP here!
