Makeout take on the A-Z challenge!

August 2, 2017 |

We fell in love with Makeout when the pop punks recently released debut single Crazy! Their debut record The Good Life is set for a Rise Records release on September 29 and they played their first shows as a band on tour with Blink 182… We wanted to find out more about the band so bassist Alex Lofton took on our A-Z challenge…

 A song that made you want to make music?

For me personally I started in the heavier side of music and I’m not sure about one specific song but bands like Underoath, The Devil Wears Prada, etc etc, just really motivated me and give me hard feels and I knew I wanted to do that haha.

Best rider you’ve ever had?

Probably our rider with blink 182 which was just everything we could ever want haha, liquor, water, food, beer just anything and everything and virtually unlimited haha.

Craziest moment you’ve experienced in the band?

Honestly just playing those huge shows with blink and that being our debut as a band, we had never played a show together prior. having Mark and Travis telling us we killed it and playing to sold out arenas every night, it was very surreal.

Easiest song you wrote?

Probably Where Is Your Charger, but its a super short fun song thats about losing your charger haha super fun and funny song.

Favourite song in your set?

Either Childish which is our opening song, super high energy and very jumpy, or Crazy which is our second song and that song is just so much fun to play, a ton of crowd interaction just a good time ha.

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

Kanye West

Hardest thing about being in a band?

For us personally its our distance, Scott our drummer lives in Australia. I live in texas, and the other two live in Mass
