Interview with Anthony Sanders of The Island of Misfit Toys
Seeing The Island of Misfit Toys play the Township a few weeks ago was one of the most exciting shows I’ve been to in a while. I was immediately taken in by the nine-piece’s eclectic, energetic sound and singer and multi-instrumentalist Anthony Sander’s ability to draw in a crowd who was mostly there to see the headliners. I was SO taken, in fact, that I approached Anthony for an interview after the show ended. Luckily, Anthony is a friendly, personable guy and enthusiastically replied “DUDE! YES!”
I spoke with Anthony as he was recording Island’s new full length, I Made You Something, that is due out this summer. We discussed the band’s origins, Yung Lean, the new record, and his favorite places to eat in Chicago.
An interview regarding I Made You Something, and the band in general!
