IE024 - Mark Engles of dredg // Black Map (the band who provides I&E's theme music!)

Mark Engles, guitarist of dredg and Black Map (and a long time musical influence of Andy's), joins us for a conversation about his playing style, how Black Map began and what their writing process looks like, details on their upcoming sophomore album "In Droves," his relationship between being a touring musician and having a day job, life in San Fransisco, how they met Chevelle, and lastly, a hilarious story from dredg's tour in Belgium and the elaborate prank that happened there.
