About a Song: Billy Talent Talk “Afraid of Heights”


On July 29, punk-infused rockers Billy Talent will release their much anticipated fifth studio album, Afraid of Heights. Recently, Riffyou.com spent some time with Billy Talent guitarist, producer and co-songwriter Ian D’Sa to talk about the inspiration behind the album’s title track, “Afraid of Heights,” as well as the new, sonic risk the band explored for it. You can listen to what D’Sa had to say about it, below.

Also, stay tuned for our feature length interview with D’Sa, where we talk about the direction Billy Talent took with the Afraid of Heights album, how the temporary health-related absence of their drummer Aaron Solowoniuk affected the recording process, as well whether or not the guys thought about calling it quits at any point during the past few years.
