Pallbearer's Brett Campbell: "I've always been attracted to the extreme"

Psychedelic culture has long had a relationship with heavy music – but Pallbearer’s Brett Campbell has taken it to curious new heights

So Brett, when did you first develop an interest in psychedelic culture?

Brett Campbell: “I’ve always been interested in it from a very young age. As soon as I heard about what acid was I knew I wanted to do it. It’s such an interesting thing. In my early 20s and late teens I began experimenting with things, to rewire my brain. I was raised in a very conservative household, and one day you realise that everything you’ve been taught is complete bullshit. You know what I mean? So I thought, ‘Oh wow! I have to rebuild everything I know!’ And I was trying to come up with my own personal philosophy. And that became part of it, experimenting with psychedelics. Which had a very positive impact on me.”
