Exclusive: Weerd Science (aka Josh Eppard) interviewed by MC Lars

March 08 2011, 12:57 PM EST By Tim Karan

It was just about a decade ago when JOSH EPPARD rose to fame alongside his friends from Kingston, New York, as the original drummer for COHEED AND CAMBRIA. As the band began receiving notoriety for their experimental epic rock, Eppard released a hip-hop album under the name WEERD SCIENCE—the moniker he had been using as an emcee since he was a teenager. But struggles with drug addiction pushed Eppard out of Coheed and away from music for years before finally joining up with Fred Mascherino and Andy Jackson in TERRIBLE THINGS. Now nearly two years sober, Eppard has joined up with likeminded MC LARS to finally release the follow-up to Weerd Science’s 2005 debut, Friends & Nervous Breakdowns. Sick Kids will finally be released May 17 on MC Lars' label, Horris Records, and in this exclusive interview, MC Lars finds out exactly what took so long. We've also got an exclusive stream of "Unlovable Loser" down below.
