Steve Isaacs and Dave Navarro of the Panic Channel spoke with MuchMusic.com in a Coupla Questions interview. Asked about the story behind the band’s name, Navarro responded, “It’s more of a commentary on the state of the media right now in terms of everything that’s being shoved down our throats, this hysteria and panic and chaos. Rarely the top story – if it bleeds, it leads. It’s a commentary on that. At the same time there’s a spiritual aspect of it in terms of channeling our own personal panic and chaos through the music as a release.”
