AP: The Oral History of Coalesce


Coalesce has posted a "director's cut" if you will of the Oral History on the band I compiled for Alternative Press. I turned in close to 20,000 words when the magazine wanted about 6,000. Enjoy.

Fantastic job on this one Ryan. It's a very good and compelling read. Now I want to hear more of their stuff.
