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.

Here is Gina Gleason’s pedal world onstage. It includes a Strymon TimeLine, EarthQuaker Devices Disaster Transport SR, a Philly Fuzz germanium-based prototype, Champion Leccy Fettle Boost, Wampler Tumnus, Xotic SP Boost, Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail Nano, EQD Data Corruptor, EHX Micro POG, MXR EVH Phase 90, MXR Super Badass Distortion, an Ernie Ball Volume pedal, and a DigiTech Whammy. Up top is a TC Electronic PolyTune keeping everything in check and the GigRig G2 switching unit is the puppeteer pulling the strings on all the pedals.
