ADVERTISMENT

Brit pop-punkers All Tied Up have received comparisons to the likes of All Time Low, A Day To Remember, Blink 182 and even Green Day. The quartet's American influences and Northern vocal delivery create a unique British sound that is refreshing in a pop punk genre that sees Brits put on American accents. We asked the band to take on the A-Z challenge.

A song that made you want to make music?

Pretty much anything written by Elvis Costello!

Best rider you've ever had?

We've never been blessed with a rider before (although the MK11 venue boys always look after us well) - but Monkey
Shoulder scotch/ Crystal Head vodka would be more than welcomed in the future!

Craziest thing you've experienced in the band?

A fatal shooting just up the road from where we played in London on a tour in 2015.... luckily, we missed the bullets and only got caught up in the aftermath!

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

Hmmm.. hard to pick, but 'Asbestos Box' from the new record is pretty deep in general and is about a slow self-aware descent into insanity

Easiest song you wrote?

'Defect in the System' Dave and Nick wrote and recorded in front of a laptop in about 2 hours flat!

Favourite song in your set?

Currently 'Master of Disguise' from the new record

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

Dave Grohl/ Ronnie Radke - whoever has the clearest schedule!

Hardest thing about being in a band?

Compromise!

Interesting fact about one of your members?

Nick was the original drummer for djent band Hacktivist.

Jokes you have in the band?

If we ever get to Iron Maiden level and get to go on 'secret warm up' shows before playing massive stadiums - we'll most likely do it under the name 'Davey and the Queefs...'

Key to writing a song?

Finding that killer hook!

Longest distance you've travelled to play a show?

Approx 149.5 miles!
