Saltlake take on the A-Z challenge

August 25, 2017 |



Brit alt-rock trio Saltlake are gearing up to release new EP Medicate Me on November 10. We asked the band to take on the A-Z challenge to take us deeper into the world of Saltlake!

A song that made you want to make music?

Henry - You Could Be Mine (GNR)
John - Welcome to the Black Parade (MCR)
Liam - Spirit of the Radio (Rush)

Best rider you've ever had?

We are only ever fortunate enough to get given a handful of beers most of the time, although John did once get loads of mini Cornish Pasties.

Craziest thing you've experienced in the band?

A couple of things, first was a heavily intoxicated man who burst through our rehearsal room door and very aggressively complimented us on what he could hear through the sound proof walls.

Second was not being allowed to leave the stage unless we played more and having people throw money at us.

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

"As tears fall like waterfalls, you're too deep to reach the surface"


Easiest song you wrote?

A song on our first EP called 'Circles'.

Favourite song in your set

We all have different, Henry's is 'Badlands' off the new EP, John and Liam's is an older track called 'Breathe'.

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

The Chuckle Brothers would be ace..

Hardest thing about being in a band?

Trying to organise three unorganised people and trying to be patient when waiting to release new music.

Interesting fact about one of your members?

Liam lied about being able to play bass when he met Henry as a kid, learnt on the job.

Jokes you have in the band?

Liam's still lying about playing bass.

Key to writing a song?

Being patient, serve the song and not your ego.

Longest distance you've travelled to play a show?

Brighton to Wrexham only to find that it never existed.
