METAL PULP AND PAER: Hello Waylon. So glad to catch up with you. Thank you for taking the time to speak with us at Metal Pulp And Paper. We appreciate it. 
A lot of your fans will know you from your former band, Mushroomhead, but let’s first get into what you’ve been up with your new band, A Killer's Confession. What’s the first thing everyone should know and expect to hear from A Killer’s Confession

This you need to kmow, this is the band I truly belong in. You can expect no gimmicks and a group of guys that truly want to just play music. 
Who are your partners in crime that make up A Killer’s Confession?  

We have Matt Trumpy on guitar, Paul Elliot on guitar, Jon Dale on Drums, and JP Cross on Bass. 
Some big news recently came out in September 2016. You announced A Killer’s Confession had signed to Megadeth bassist David Ellefson's EMP Label Group, and that your debut album Unbroken would be released this spring, April 28th? How did signing on with  come about? 

I can thank Opus from Dead By Wednesday for introducing me to EMP. 
How long had you been shopping around for a label? 

LOL a week. 
What does this mean for you now? How will it be having David Ellefson in your corner to help put A Killer’s Confession on the music map?
It’s nice to have one of the BIG 4 in my corner. 
The EMP Label has a great roster of bands; Dollskin, Doyle, Semblant, Dead By Wednesday, Motograter, along with many others, and now A Killer’s Confession. Not much more you can’t ask for right from the beginning? 

There was nothing more I could have asked for. 
Before getting signed on to the EMP Label, had you met David Ellefson before? Back in the day had Megadeth and Mushroomhead’s paths ever crossed? 

David worked with Pig Benis and I had met him through that but nothing with Megadeth
Unbroken, the name of your new release. What’s the first thing you want the listeners to walk away with after hearing it for the first time? 

That you can always fail in one way or another but always pick yourself up and remain UNBROKEN. 
Is there a song for everyone on it that you think will hook them and feed their craving? 

I don't know about just one song. We wanted to write an album for everyone. We wanted an album that would hook everyone. 
The cover image to Unbroken? What is it all about, and what message are you trying to get across to everyone that sees it? 

That is for the viewer to decide. Their interpretation is up to them. 
MPAP: One of your first songs on the new release, "A Killer's Confession", features a guest performance by Korn’s guitarist Brian "Head" Welch. That’s a big heavy hitter to get? How did you make that happen?  

WAYLON: Brian is a close friend and he was there to help me back when I needed him. I will forever be thankful. 
MPAP: What was it like being able to work with him?

WAYLON: Dream come true! 
MPAP: Kimberly Freeman, from One Eyed Doll, also appears on Unbroken, performing the song “Sympathy” with you. How was it collaborating with her? 

WAYLON: The song would be incomplete without her voice and I am so thankful she was able to do it for AKC 
MPAP: Let’s go back to when it all started, the infant stage you might say. Did you know what kind of band, or kind of sound you wanted to have when you decided to put A Killer’s Confession into place? 

WAYLON: I had no clue only that I wanted to write good music. 
MPAP: While you were becoming unhappy in Mushroomhead, by any chance were you already designing the blueprints for your next musical adventure, which soon would become A Killer’s Confession

WAYLON: Nope. 
MPAP: Metal Pulp And Paper is based out of Portland, Oregon. You recently traveled here to shoot a video with Portland’s own Amerakin Overdose for their song “Letting Go”, which you also guest on their The Great Amerakin Dream release. How was this experience? How was it shooting the video here?

WAYLON: A.O.D are my boys and I was very happy being able to work with them. I loved shooting in Astoria, knowing that was where the  movie The Goonies was filmed. 
MPAP: You were once quoted, "I have eleven years of wonderful, wonderful memories, but I'm ready for something else in my life. I'm ready for a change. I've lived the same monotony for too long." How will you make sure the monotony doesn’t happen again with A Killer’s Confession? What will the difference be? 
WAYLON: I can't say as of right now but I'm sure it will be way different. 
MPAP: Another quote of yours, “I'm at home with my family. For the first time in a long time, I don't feel a burden of Mushroomhead, and it did feel like a burden to me. It's not my burden, it's not my problem anymore, and I'm glad it's gone. But the fact is I do wish them the best." Is there still bad blood between you and them two years later? Are you over it all? 

WAYLON: Over it. 
MPAP: Talking about you being home with your family, Tom Araya from Slayer once commented during an interview that he doesn’t like to tour anymore and just wants to be with his family esoecially after doing it for over 30 years. Do you feel you could someday be in that same position? 
WAYLON: If you don't want to tour, then don't. If I cross that bridge I most likely will hang it up and retire. 
MPAP: What can your fans expect for the rest of 2017 after Unbroken is released? I’m assuming there will be a tour, or tours of some sort correct? 

WAYLON: Expect AKC to hit the road hard and Heavy. We will also continue writing our new album for next year. 
MPAP: Before we bring this interview to a close, is there anything else you’d like to say to you the Metal Pulp And Paper readers and your fans out there? 

WAYLON: I will keep moving forward always trying to bring them new music and entertainment to enjoy. 
MPAP: One last thing, where do you see yourself and A Killer’s Confession in five years? 

WAYLON: Five Albums in and still going. 
MPAP: On behalf of myself and Metal Pulp And Paper, I’d like to thank you for taking the time to speak with us, Waylon. Look forward to what you and A Killer’s Confession do to finish out the year and beyond.
