We asked the band to take on the A-Z challenge;
A song that made you want to make music?
Bloodhound Hang – The Bad Touch
Best rider you have had?
That time we actually got paid.
Craziest moment in the band?
We were recently invited to Russia for an 11 day tour, which we are gonna be doing in early 2018. That was pretty crazy, especially since it was our first proper tour offer outside Ireland.
Deepest lyric one of your songs features?
‘’You persist me. Through all the years of my life, a shadow in the back of my mind. Plotting your every move, trying to cut me loose.’’ – The Benefit Of Doubt
Easiest song you wrote?
Probably our first single “Call Off The Unknown”. It came together quite quickly.
Favourite song in your set?
Usually the newest one we’ve written because it feels the most fresh, and we’re already started playing stuff we’ve written but not recorded yet, so it’s hard to choose a favourite.
Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?
We’d love a solo from Kurt Ballou, maybe we could even record with him
Hardest thing about being in a band?
Interesting fact about one of your members?
Chris is a yank
Jokes you have in the band?
We’re goofy weird dude’s and we joke about almost everything.
Key to writing a song?
Longest distance you’ve travelled to play a show?
So far, London was the furthest.
Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?
As of yet probably the guys in Norma Jean or Sick Of It All, they were totally down to earth no stress guy’s who still put on an amazing show every night. They were good to us when we played together.
New band you’d recommend?
Opening for this band would be ideal?
Every Time I Die – sooner rather than later!
Place you’d most like to tour?
Anywhere with a crowd that has a passion for rage fueled songs and no bullshit.
Quote that you’d like to pass on to our readers?
“You’ll do nothing” – Conor McGregor
Reason for the title of your forthcoming release?
The lyrical themes explored on this release, and the timing at which we put the EP together, heavily relate to the symptoms and feelings felt by one who suffers from post traumatic stress disorder.

The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?
No, music is perpetually good and people just need to stop being lazy and go find it. You’re sure as fuck not gonna find it on The X-Factor or The Voice sitting on your ass. Metal is better than it’s ever been before, FACT!
If you consider Tee’s, Patches and CD’s unusual then there’s that..
Variations you’d like to do on one of your songs?
What do your fans mean to you?
We love and appreciate anyone who can support what we do and it means the world.
X-rays or any other treatments needed for band injuries?
No, we’ve been lucky so far!
You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?
Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band?
Cheetah. They’re always just chilling in the sun, no fuck’s given but they’re always ready to pounce and chase down their prey.
