Tony: Who plays what in Nodes of Ranvier?

Thomas: This line up is totally new and I feel the best we have ever had. No lineup changes are expected anytime soon. Thomas Hentges (me - vocals), Ryan Knutson (drums), Jon Parker (guitar), Jake Stefek (guitar) and Nick Murphy (bass).

Tony: That's a weird name you've got! What's its origins?

Thomas: It's an anatomy term. I think we all hate it now because people always ask about's just a name really, ya know.

Tony: How much touring have you done so far?

Thomas: We've done a few months but look to get really crazy on the touring spectrum this fall and all of the next year. Hopefully some big support tours are in the wings.

Tony: How does your church get on with having a member of a hardcore band in their congregation?

Thomas: None of us really attend church regularly. But, when we do, it seems to be fine.

Tony: How would you describe what you are trying to do creatively and spiritually?

Thomas: Creative wise, we just want to write music we enjoy. Spiritually, it's to just be real. I just want to concentrate on my walk and my faith and encourage others to do the same. CR
