Sister Shotgun take on the A-Z challenge

Sister Shotgun take on the A-Z challenge

November 14, 2017 |



We wanted to get to know Sister Shotgun a bit more ahead of the release of their new single Silhouettes on December 8th so what better way to dig deeper into the band than with our A-Z challenge?

A song that made you want to make music?

Helena - My Chemical Romance

Best rider you've ever had?

Fort Fest 2016. They laid out an all you can eat BBQ with free beers, ciders and bottles of red wine. Cue getting completely drunk with the guys from InME later that evening.

Craziest thing you've experienced in the band?

Probably getting the whole of our performance for Fort Fest 2016 together. I remember being determined to set myself on fire using flash paper from the magic store I live next door to. They quickly talked me out of it and we decided to hire two amazing fire dancers to perform with us. The amount of paperwork you need to make that happen is insane. We didn't know until 5 days before the festival whether we'd be able to make it happen. Luckily, we did and the show was amazing other than me missing my cue to get on stage.

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

Broken, torn and burnt. Rising from the dirt. Fires raging, I am changing. It's like you never learn. - From The Ashes

Easiest song you wrote?

Silhouettes was super easy. It all came together in the space of two hours lyrics and all.

Favourite song in your set?

No Hope. It's got this great energy and is always an awesome way to open the show!

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

Corey Taylor! I think he's such a phenomenal vocalist.

Hardest thing about being in a band?

Not being able to have regular showers on tour. I just feel grim after a couple of shows.

Interesting fact about one of your members?

Tim plays the trombone and has contracted and gotten over diabetes twice!

Jokes you have in the band?

We have this game where we have to find the most creative ways to flip each other off. It's always a good time. Especially when you're on stage.

Key to writing a song?

A massive chorus, patience and teamwork.

Longest distance you've traveled to play a show?

Probably Bournemouth I don't even remember how long it took us to get there but it felt like forever!
