The Consequences of Many Minds

We’re so excited to release our very first multi-member interview with none other than one of steampunk’s most well-known bands – the Bay Area’s contribution to the world of steam-powered sci-fi and music: Vernian Process!

One dark and stormy night not too long ago (actually it wasn’t stormy that night at all, but listening to Vernian Process evokes feelings of dark atmosphere reminiscent of a wild train ride through cutting rain and lightning, so just imagine with us, friends), we sat down with Josh Pfeiffer, Martin Irigoyen, and Janus Zarate for a lively talk on everything from their roots, their music and writing processes, to their favorite video games.

One of the best parts of talking with more than one member of a band is the varied discussion that follows (and we hope to be able to feature more of these types of interviews soon).  We got to kick back and listen as the guys carried the interview – and if one thing soon became obvious, it was that Vernian Process knows their music…and their steampunk! We were honored to be right in the middle of the fun.



For artist and tour information, albums, and merchandise, visit Vernian Process’s official website (it’s gorgeous!) and their Facebook page

And, for a bit of extra fun, the following is one of Kristin’s personal favorites – the Steampunk Horde can’t get enough of this video! Wonder why. 😉
