Greyhaven take on the A-Z challenge!

March 1, 2017 |



Brit alt-rockers Greyhaven recently released their latest single Brother. It’s a brilliant track and shows a band with a lot of promise! We challenged the band to take on our A-Z challenge!

A song that made you want to make music?

Between the 5 of us, We all have many different influences which have brought us together musicians. Personally, "In The End" by Linkin Park was the first song I heard which made me fall in love with rock and metal music.

Best rider you've ever had?

Probably just a big old case of beer, Who doesn't love free booze! Craziest thing you've experienced in the band?

Craziest moment you’ve experienced in the band?

The craziest moment for us was probably seeing our last music video on Scuzz and hearing it being played on Kerrang! radio. Those shows took up a large part of our childhood and seeing/hearing our material being played on those shows was a dream come true!

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

The first single we released from our latest EP "On and On" is about dealing with metal health and depression. The song ends with the person not being able to overcome their struggle. The line "so tonight, they'll cry, and dream of better times" is a strong one for me as it's the part of the song where friends and family are coming to terms with the terrible things that have taken place in the victims life.

Easiest song you wrote?

I wrote a song in about 5 minutes once called "Nicolas rage" but I'm not sure the track will ever make it into the studio...

Favourite song in your set?

Our latest single "Brother" is a fun one for me as it's the most feel good track we have and it's a lot of fun to jump about to.

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

I would crawl 10 miles through barbed wire and salt just to get Chester Bennington to fart on a record of ours!

Hardest thing about being in a band?

Probably the money, most of us are either students or not from the wealthiest of backgrounds. We have given up a lot of other luxuries to be in a band together.

Interesting fact about one of your members?

Our guitarist Alex is currently on tour with Trivium as a guitar techs for one the bands!

Jokes you have in the band?

Well we are probably one of the few bands who's singer gets the kind of abuse you'd expect a bass player to get...

Key to writing a song?

Don't force writing music, and don't be afraid to admit a song is bad. You may have to write 100 tracks before you feel like you've written a total banger!

Longest distance you've travelled to play a show?

We went up to Leicester to play a show on tour but he haven't made it further north than that! Having said that we are currently talking to a band from Australia so who knows what's in store!
