March 13, 2017 |



Black Map are made up of former members of Dredg, Farand The Trophy Fire. They have an awesome brand of rock and recently released the video for new single Run Rabbit Run which was our track of the day (here). We asked the rockers to take on our A-Z challenge!

A song that made you want to make music?

"In Bloom"- Nirvana

Best rider you have had? 

2 bales of feed hay (w/alfalfa)

Craziest moment in the band? 

Becoming a band in the first place

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

Don't know about deepest. Favourite on the record might be "When the light is more forgiving, I'm a dead ringer for the living. I try to meet you more alive."

Easiest song you wrote?

Transit III. Wrote that one on my piano in about 5 minutes. Recorded it on my iPhone and sent it to our producer.

Favourite song in your set?


Guest you'd most like to feature on your record?

Guy Garvey of Elbow.

Hardest thing about being in a band? 

Driving. Waiting.

Interesting fact about one of your members? 

Chris has a law degree.

Jokes you have in the band? 

Our tour manager plays "midnight at the oasis" constantly in the van, every day of tour. I can't stand it.

Key to writing a song?

I'm not sure I know the answer to that. It changes. I know that it has to "move" you as the writer. If that happens you have a shot at it moving others.

Longest distance you've travelled to play a show?

Without a day off, Niagara Falls to Charlotte NC I believe. 700 miles. San Francisco to Portland a bunch. We've done a ton of shit drives.
