Core Of iO take on the A-Z Challenge!

October 12, 2017 |



Core Of iO are releasing their new EP Part II: Europa on December 1st. We asked the band to take on our A-Z challenge to find out more about them!

A song that made you want to make music?

Anything off the album 'Ten' by Pearl Jam.

Best rider you've ever had?

This question should be 'only rider you've ever had' ha ha. Bottled water, some beer, crisps and fruit. Courtesy of The Monolith. Thanks guys x

Craziest thing you've experienced in the band?

Whilst on tour once we decided to play the South Park movie drinking game. every time they swear, you drink. none of us fared well. Rich (drummer) was being sick 15 minutes in and I half remember dropping off to sleep and managing to pour beer into my own bott whilst wearing it. Needless to say, we did not make it to the end.

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

Probably something off our first EP titled 'With Gravity as My Hostess'. I was pretty unstable mentally at the time. But I'm over that now. My lyrics are still deep to a level but I'm nowhere near to allowing myself being so open when I'm so vulnerable.

Easiest song you wrote?

N/A. Listen to our music and you'll see why.

Favourite song in your set?

That's got to be our upcoming single called 'Stuck'. Just wait till you hear it.

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

Will from Black Peaks, bringing a lot his awesome voice and his sexy saxophone skills.

Hardest thing about being in a band?

Watching talentless, arrogant plankers become successful.

Interesting fact about one of your members?

Can't help you here, we are all completely boring.

Jokes you have in the band?

Our drummer

Key to writing a song?

I think not being entirely self-indulgent is a good start.

Longest distance you've travelled to play a show?

We played UK tech fest at Newark showground this year. It was 10 hours of driving with only a 3 hour stop off at the festival to perform.
