Many thanks to Duke Behnke over at the Post Crescent for interviewing us and doing this write up. Much appreciated! Duke has a good understanding of what the main heart and focus of Dead Weight is. The people, the energy, and the Wisconsin-based centric production. We're glad he chose to focus on those aspects when writing the article.
