A song that made you want to make music?
Circa survive – The Difference Between Medicine and Poison Is in the Dose
Whenever I hear this song I just want to stop what I’m doing and write!! His vocals are just incredible
Best rider you have had?
Beer and food what else could you need though
Craziest moment in the band?
Let’s just say that there was never a dull moment on our recent tour with Borders, however we seem to recall one particular night after our show in Bristol that I think would probably be best to be kept quiet.
Deepest lyric one of your songs features?
“Hello we care,
We know your there,
But we can’t keep you here.”
The song is about suicide, depression and self-hate and not being able to see the signs before it’s too late.
Easiest song you wrote?
Probably “As Above” it just came so naturally to us.
Favourite song in your set?
I’d have to say “Colours” it’s just fun and has a real driving nature to it.
Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?
Well, Claudio Sanchez would be nice haha but realistically would be cool to get Lucas Woodland to guest from “Holding Absence” he has a killer voice.
Hardest thing about being in a band?
I’d say finance and just funding the lifestyle can be a pain sometimes but it’s what we love to do so we work hard and make sure we have enough to carry on doing what we love.
Interesting fact about one of your members?
Conor our drummer is actually Mexican.
Jokes you have in the band?
We have an inside joke about our bassist, it’s #backingtrack, we love him really but we are mean to him.
Key to writing a song?
Personally for me it’s don’t try to force anything just let it come to you and don’t get frustrated if you can’t write anything. Just put your instrument down relax and come back to it later, it’s not going anywhere!
Longest distance you’ve traveled to play a show?
We once traveled 6 hours to Workington in the Lake District, and back, but it was worth it!
Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?
Daniel Tompkins, he is an incredible vocalist
New band you’d recommend?
Borders or Deference. Big bands that are incredible and they are awesome dudes
Opening for this band would be ideal?
Issues, we would definitely love to open for them.
Place you’d most like to tour?
Europe is definitely next on the cards…
Quote that you’d like to pass on to our readers?
If it’s dry rub the thigh.
Reason for the title of your forthcoming release?
We re-branded a little while ago, so just keeping everything neat and plain and self-titled seemed like the best way to go.
See us live at?
We have quite a few gigs in the pipeline so just stay tuned and check our Facebook out.
The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?
I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s better or worse. None of us really experienced the old days, all we have to go on is stories and recordings, we would love to go back and see for ourselves and make that comparison but we’re pretty happy with where it’s at the moment.
We sold moon silver wind breakers and they went down a storm.
Variations you’d like to do on one of your songs?
A couple of acoustic tracks would be nice to get done in the next year.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. Honestly, without them we are nothing and we really appreciate everyone’s love and support.
X-rays or any other treatments needed for band injuries?
Well recently our bassist accidentally glassed himself in the face coming home drunk and falling up the stairs but other than that nothing too bad.
You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?
Conor, haha not really, to be honest there’s been times we have all been at fault for that, be it working and leaving straight after to get to a gig can sometimes be a pain but we have never missed a set 🙂
Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band?
Bunch of monkeys.
