LA goth rock troupe Dommin are touring the UK with old buddies Lacuna Coil this month and they’ll be back over here in March with soul mates H.I.M..

We caught up with founder member and frontman Kristofer Dommin to discover what makes this most tortured of individuals tick.

Look out for a full and exclusive interview here soon and welcome back the rushonrock Rider! On your iPod: Depeche Mode all the way. They’re one of my favourite bands.

Small Screen Pleasure: I love the news. I watch a lot of current affairs so I feel like I know what’s going on in the world.

Making a meal of it: Grilled chicken and steamed rice. It sounds pretty boring but it’s something I’d be happy eating every day of my life.

Drivetime: I’ve got an old pick-up truck which I’ve been driving since the age of 15. It’s back home gathering dust as we’re out on tour all the time.

Ace Place: I don’t know what to say so I’ll say my home town of Los Angeles. I just love it there.

Dream destination: That’s an easy one. Rome. I’m so excited about going there in the next few weeks.

Nickname shame: People just call me Dommin.
