PropertyOfZack Interview : : Matt Good
A lot has happened in the past few weeks for the individual members of D.R.U.G.S., and PropertyOfZack had the chance to speak with Matt Good just two days ago about the whirlwind of events. Matt and I discussed his decision to step away from the band, his thoughts on their success, a new project called Kit Fysto, From First To Last, creative freedom, and more. It’s a great and interesting read for fans to find out what’s next, so don’t miss out!
It’s been a wild and surprising ride for your fans, and I’m sure yourself, over the past few weeks. Especially this past week this the confirmation of Craig going back to Chiodos and you guys all leaving D.R.U.G.S. How long ago did you make your decision?
What I keep trying to explain to people is that it wasn’t something we methodically planned out. It wasn’t some scheme or anything. I want everyone to know that it was something that we thought about. We didn’t wake up one day and decide this. I want people to know that it was a conscious decision between the three of us that it would be the best move to make. That’s all.
Was there a moment before you decided to leave that you thought you might stay in the band and record whenever Craig was available?
A lot of the stuff going on was confusing. It’s going to become one of those, “he said, he said” type things. Mostly, all I want people to know is that based off the information that was given to us and everything that was going on, it seemed like what we did was the best decision to make at that moment. There might be some people who might never understand, but I feel like for me to go into details would be too personal. People take what they want out of what I say anyways. I’m really trying to avoid anything that can start any sort of conflict because I don’t want it to. People are reading between the lines of everything I’m saying. There’s no bad blood and I’m not trying to start fights. We believed we needed to leave and it made sense to us.
