In Part 1 of our conversation with Bruce Somers and Free Dominguez of the resurgent Kidneythieves, we spoke about places the band had been and what it took to get to this point. Now, the topic turns to where the band goes from here. With the "Invisible Plan" EP quickly coming together, we talk about the new music, the emotions of going out on the road, working with KMFDM, and naturally, the band's favorite horror films.
With the release of "Zerospace" in 2002, there was no hotter industrial band than the Kidneythieves. Shortly thereafter, the two-person troupe of singer/lyricist Free Dominguez and one-man-band Bruce Somers went on hiatus. In 2007, the band announced they were back in action and furiously writing songs, which culminated in the summer of 2010's triumphant return and the powerful album "Trypt0fanatic." Now back in the studio and recording their upcoming EP "Invisible Plan," the duo is working feverishly and putting out the same hard-charging, electronically influenced music they became known for almost a decade ago. Taking a moment off from their recording, Bruce and Free were generous enough to sit down and talk about what's new with the band, what it's like to be back, and how they ended up on the soundtrack of a Final Fantasy game.
