William Beckett knows a thing or two about new beginnings. Formerly known for fronting the now defunct The Academy Is..., Beckett is jumping full-force into the solo life, and proving that the transition can be a successful one. Between his upcoming tour, his forthcoming EP Walk the Talk, and plans to drop two more subsequent EPs, he has a lot on his plate and a lot more to come. Despite his full schedule, he still found the time to take our PV Q&A -- and add his own video response spin to things. Here, he dishes on his approach to releasing three EPs as opposed to a full-length, the symbolism behind Walk the Talk, and the crazy surprises you might find on his live tour. Check it out, spin the premiere of his new song, "Girl, You Shoulda Been a Drummer," and grab Walk the Talk when it drops April 17. For more new music from Beckett, you can also check out an exclusive stream of "You Never Give Up" over at Buzznet.
