Frontman John Baizley and former Cirque du Soleil shredder Gina Gleason explain the atmospheric metal outfit’s switch to single-coils—and how a fuzz pedal first brought them together.

John Baizley’s space station is a flat with boutique boxes and superstore stomps. Starting at the top left you have a pair of Strymon pedals—a TimeLine and Mobius—a Philly Fuzz Infidel, Crowther Audio Double Hotcake, Retro-Sonic Compressor, EarthQuaker Devices Dispatch Master, Electro-Harmonix Micro POG, Fulltone OCD, Boss DD-3 Digital Delay, Retro-Sonic Chorus, and nestled in the lower right-hand corner is a DigiTech Whammy next to an Ernie Ball Volume pedal. Up top is a TC Electronic PolyTune and the GigRig G2 switching unit is the brain controlling everything.
