The Interbeing recently released their new album Among The Amorphous. The Danish metallers are consistently putting out incredible music and this concept record is yet another string to their bow! We asked frontman Dara Corcoran to take on the A-Z challenge!
A song that made you want to make music?
Metallica – Blackened from “…And Justice for All”.
Best rider you have ever had?
Rockclub Tapper in Talinn, Estonia. We were named out at the airport, driven straight to the hotel where everything was completely taken care for. The promoter just said “name whatever you need”, before, during and after the show.
Craziest moment you’ve experienced in the band?
Flying to Tokyo, Japan in November 2016 to play a packed show in front of the coolest audience who wanted us to sign albums. We felt like rock stars on the other side of the world.
Deepest lyric one of your songs features?
First song we wrote which was “Face Deletion“. The song describes how I physically face my demons and ghosts of the past in my dreams to overcome them.
Easiest song you wrote?
“In the Transcendence” which was written in one night with cold beers in front of the computer.
Favourite song in your set?
It differs. Right now it would be the 1st song off our new album: “Spiral Into Existence“.
Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?
Devin Townsend with the old SYL vocals or Bjørn “Speed” Strid who masters the melodic screams and Maynard James Keenan and his out of this world vocal performances with Tool.
Hardest thing about being in a band?
The impatience with getting things done. Not everyone works at the same speed and that can be frustrating.
Interesting fact about one of your members?
A few weeks before we played support for Stone Sour in 2012 our drummer was told that his newborn child had cancer. I remember my admiration and respect for him for showing up and doing a kick ass job, even though he
wouldn’t get the full diagnose before the day after the show. His child was luckily cured later on.
Jokes you have in the band?
Our bass player Jacob who always reeks up every room he enters. I swear that guy’s bowls are full of rats and mice, haha..
Key to writing a song?
Be objective enough to cut out the crap, group all the ideas for 1 song and listen to the role of each idea. But thats our writing proces, not everyone else’s.
Longest distance you’ve traveled to play a show?
Tokyo, Japan in 2016 and Texas, USA in 2012 were our longest distances. Awesome experiences.
Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?
Marilyn Manson in the Antichrist Superstar era. And seeing Gojira playing in a very small venue in Copenhagen in 2010.
New band you’d recommend?
3Teeth, Abiogenesis and the Danish band VOLA.
Opening for this band would be ideal?
Place you’d most like to tour?
Quote you’d like to pass on to our readers?
Be realistic about your goals and never forget your integrity.
Reason for the title of your forthcoming release?
The main character in our songs “The Interbeing” enters the portal at the “Edge of the Obscure” into the world of its formless creators. It is now “Among the Amorphous” where The Interbeing will face his creators and his purpose.
See us live at?
2 gigs in Copenhagen, Denmark June 2017. Bremen Theatre June 21st and the very cool festival Copenhell June 23rd at 1 pm.
The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?
No, not really. The old days were different than the current days but there is a lot of advantages with the current days such as the accessibility. And we can’t change the present. Only adapt.
We just ordered a lot of tote bags with our logo on it. I didn’t know what it was until a few days ago. Apparently it’s very common. 😉
Variations you’d like to do on any of your songs?
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. The people who support us, who spread the word, who show up at the shows, who buy the records and who stay loyal fans make us who we are as a band.
X-rays or any other treatments needed for band related injuries?
I am actually getting an MR-scan in a few weeks due to a knee injury because of the video we did for “Deceptive Signal” back in January.
You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?
Always the other guys in the band. The lead singer never has anything to do with the faults.
Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band?
The Saltwater Crocodile. It studies it prey for a long time before attacking. Each decision towards its goal is weighed thoroughly before it is taken. At the current point it defines us pretty well.
