I The Mighty headed to Download for their first festival outside the US! We caught up with guitarist and backing vocalist Ian Pedigo ahead of their set to talk shows, a new record and horror films.

You’re at Download! Are you excited to be here?

I am very excited! It’s I The Mighty’s first ever festival show outside of the US so it’s really an honour to be here!

That’s great! Are you looking forward to your set?

Yeah, I’m pumped and getting excited! In about an hour or so we’re going to head backstage and start getting ready. Stoked!

What can we expect from an I The Mighty set?

Lots of rock, good energy. Hopefully some crowd participation, we like to get the crowd involved so come prepared to get into it.

Nice. You headlined Camden Assembly on Thursday, how was that for you?

Yeah amazing! It was awesome! We’ve only actually ever played London once before and it was opening for Hands Like Houses so we didn’t know what to expect for our first ever London headliner and it ended up selling out. It was awesome! The crowd was great, there were stage dives and mosh pits. It was pretty surreal to come to a different country and see that sort of reaction!

I bet. You released your third album Connector in 2015, are there any plans for a follow-up?

All I can say right now is that it’s done. The record is done. We’re really stoked on it, really proud of it! We spent a lot of time before actually going into the studio trying to craft the songs, where on Connector we wrote more in the studio. I’d say we’re looking to tentatively put it out in the fall but there’s no dates yet. It’s ready. It’s been recorded, it’s actually on my phone right here!
