Chatting with Metal Injection, Chris noted that the band should give it a go with Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic. "I think if we approached Richard Branson in the right way, we could help them prove how safe it is," he said. "Take a heavy metal band to space and we're all going to get back just fine. How will I play drums in zero gravity? I'll worry about that when I get there."
As reported, the drummer also discussed the band's new album, noting that Randy Blythe's recently announced hiatus could make less of an impact than expected. "I can't blame him at all, and I think we all need to some time off," Adler said. "But, last November, at the end of our tour, we all spoke for a little while about a time table.
"And we don't really need Randy to be there while we're writing music," Chris continued. "Normally, he comes in with the lyrics last, sometimes even in the studio. So, we can a great head start while he does his own thing. We talked about getting together around June-ish."
In related news, the band premiered "As the Palaces Burn" documentary on February 27 in the UK, giving fans a behind-the-scenes insight of Blythe's manslaughter trial. So far, the film's received mostly positive reviews from the critics.
