ADVERTISMENT

ADVERTISMENT

A song that made you want to make music?

Thom: one song that really propelled my desire to write music was a band called Crass and the song was called Punk Is Dead.

Luis: Alive- Pearl Jam. Great tune from my childhood that I loved.

Leo: Well the first song that made me want to pick up guitar was Blink 182- What’s My Age Again. My friend was playing it in a music class on guitar in school and it really made me want to play an instrument.

Adam: I never really had one song in particular but it was Led Zeppelin as a band for me.

Best rider you've ever had?

Thom: Actually it just so happens it was probably last night! We are in Belgium on tour at the moment and we were paid well and they looked after us with as unlimited beers which was obviously VERY pleasing!

Craziest thing you've experienced in the band?

Thom: We have a lot of crazy times on tour which a lot we can’t mention in an interview!

Leo: Luis once bought 2 snickers bars and ate them in one sitting. The man is a nutter.

Adam: Holy Mackerel!

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

Thom: ‘Our fathers will hear us calling. Even though we’re oceans apart’- That Ship Has Sailed. That particular line is about a distance between something that you care about and feel impossible to reach which is how I was feeling personally at that time of writing.

Easiest song you wrote?

Leo: It was probably was our first song Push On Reckless Night. I went round Thom’s with the song and we just wrote lyrics in about 15 minutes and it ended up being our first single on our Debut EP!

Favourite song in your set?

Luis: The Story Doesn’t Here

Thom: You’re Not A Slave

Adam: Wolf Machine

Leo: Right On The Money

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

Thom: For me it’s Keith Buckley from Every Time I Die. Would love to do a song with him

Leo: I’d Like to hear one of our songs with Josh Todd from Buckcherry on vocals with Thom. The aggression and to-the-point vocals of Josh Todd would make a great guest appearance I feel.

Luis: Ben Thatcher from Royal Blood. The guy has so much energy on stage and effortless in the things he does.

Adam: Jim Morrison if he was still alive. I love his unpredictability of going mad on stage one minute and completely calm the next.

Hardest thing about being in a band?

Luis: As an independent band it’s trying to balance work and band life.

Interesting fact about one of your members?

Thom: Leo and I used to be in a band in school when I played drums (Badly) at the time.

Leo: The band was called No Idea and to be fair we had no idea what we were doing!

Thom: That is so true but we knew all we wanted to do was play music and have the thrill of playing live.

Jokes you have in the band?

Adam: Making funny Instagram stories and snapchats while on tour. We are constantly are having fun.

Thom: You have to check out our Pirate video on Instagram!

Leo: Well when a plastic sword is 4 Euros in duty free one could not resist!!

Key to writing a song?

Thom: Staying in key!

Leo: Good to be open minded and jam anything you have out in practice. Also always try different things which keeps the band fresh!

Longest distance you've travelled to play a show?

Thom: Manchester I would say. Even though we are in Belgium at the moment Manchester is slightly longer for us to travel to being from Eastbourne.

Adam: I’m sure with us now starting to play Europe I can’t imagine that longest for long.
