Recently Amb Pirate sat down with Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein at The Boardwalk to talk metal, cats and more.
Capital Chaos TV. how are you doing and how’s the tour treated you so far?
Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein I’m doing great, the tour could treat me better (laughs).
CCTV. How are you enjoying this cold weather here in California alright.
DWF. This ain’t cold, I’m from New York.
CCTV Well the first thing I want to talk to you about is the use of technology as cell phones during shows and in general I know that you stay very connected with your fans so how do you do it without letting it consume your day staying connected.
DWF. With social media to consuming my day yes I only do Instagram then im done.
CCTV No Facebook?
DWF. Never seen it.
CCTV. So you stay for a little bit then get off and done.
DWF. I post something like, we had a day and I posted something like 7 or eight things, I was so fucking bored
CCTV. Balancing your music, fitness and love life while touring and the public’s eye has to be a lot to handle even for a healthy person, how do you decompress in do, you ever get time to yourself
DWF. What is decompress?
CCTV. Letting it go, exhaling.
DWF. Go to sleep, thats what works for me.
CCTV. Your workout regimen is proof that you can exercise anywhere you don’t need a gym to get fit because we have a lot of people that look up to you and you are influential if you were to have a television show to help America get fit what would be some key points.
DWF. The only key point is consistency, that’s it no days off if you got something to do you course you got to take the day off, other than that you just got to make it part of your day.
CCTV. I understand you’re passionate about animals your totally vegan is there any charities or organizations that you would like us to know about your involved in?
DWF. I don’t have any money for charity you know so you know I like the animal shelters, do some motion for one in Seattle called Molly zoo, that’s about it.
CCTV. Do you have any pets of your own?
DWF. Cats, we have cats, many cats. I’m an animal person, I don’t care whether is a fuckin giraffe
CCTV.I want to talk a little bit about your girlfriend Alissa, the other thing you are very passionate about, so you guys are both really busy musicians and you’re touring all the time what’s it like when you finally get to see each other after having so much time apart, do just shut off the world.
DWF It’s awkward actually yeah she’s just landed in Greece today she’s starting a tour, I might go get on that tour with her, what we do is go on each others tours, those guys are cool enough to let me go, its awesome.
CCTV. Tell me about your hot sauce, what inspired you having to do with the healthy choice the passion of yours?
DWF Well friend of mine wanted to make some hot sauce so I tried his hot sauce one thing led to another and found a guy who was making hot sauce and got him on the bus told him I wanted in it he brought a bunch of samples and we picked them out and its really good. I’m fresh out, we gave the last bottle to John 5.
CCTV. what else can you tell us Doyle as far as what you have going on this year finishing up the year plans for 2016?
DWF. We have a new record coming out, all we have to do is mix it, master it, titles, artwork and put it out. Before that we’ll probably do some more shows with Jon 5. hopefully do some festivals in Europe and Id like to tour with Arch Enemy. Im going to the NAMM show.
CCTV. What do you enjoy about NAMM?
DWF\. I really don’t enjoy it, I have social anxiety, there’s so many people there now it’s sardines and everybody can see me from across the room, I cant walk 2 feet without someone taking 25 pictures. I can play to a 100.000 people no problem. put five or ten people in front of me, I’m not having it.
CCTV. thank you so much for meeting with capital chaos is there anything else you’d like to say to your fans.
DDWF. Don’t steal music, you’re ruining everything and stop with the fucking cellphones in my face while I”m playing.”
