Tomorrow Is Lost are sure an interesting bunch! Ahead of the release of their debut single Insane we asked the band to take us deeper into their world by answering our A-Z challenge!
A song which made you want to write music?
Haha – we would never be able to agree on this one!
Best rider you have ever had?
A 5kg bag of Jelly Beans.
Craziest moment your experienced in the band?
Playing our first ever gig on the mainstage at O2 Academy Newcastle…that was pretty awesome.
Deepest lyrics one of your songs features?
Our song ‘Shadow Man‘ holds a very special personal meaning to us which I won’t go diving into…because it’s one of those songs which has the potential to mean so many different things to lots of different people…music is a very subjective thing, and we would happily encourage people to form their own interpretations of our songs and their meanings…If people can identify with something in our music – then our job is well and truly done…
There’s a man in my shadow
Guiding me when I have lost my way
The man in my shadow he don’t hide but never shows his face
The man in my shadow he will follow me into these lonely nights
And guide me into the light
Easiest song you wrote?
‘No One Knows‘ is a brand new song to our set and unashamedly took us about 3 hours to write…it’s strange how sometimes it can take months to perfect a song, and other times (like this) it just falls right into place almost instantly.
Favourite song in your set?
This tends to vary a lot, generally we enjoy playing the newer songs in our set – as it’s pretty cool to test the water with people and see how they go down…it’s good to keep things fresh.
Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?
We’re big fans of A Joker’s Rage and would welcome Adam Gauton or Zakk Taylor with wide open arms. They’re a great bunch of guys to who we definitely owe a favour or two!
Hardest thing about being in a band?
Honestly…at this stage we feel very lucky to be enjoying every single part of it.
Interesting fact about one of your members?
Joe Mac is ordained as a vicar in 2 US States
Jokes you have in the band?
That Joe Mac is ordained as a vicar in 2 US States…
Key to writing a song?
For us it’s about not forcing it, and not rushing it. If we aren’t feeling actively inspired by something, we won’t write. When something grabs hold of us – that’s when ideas start to come about, and generally things fall into place quite naturally from there. The dynamics in the band are such that we compliment each other pretty well…and we’re very lucky in that way.
Longest distance you’ve travelled to play a show?
Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?
Bruce Dickinson – the guy is an absolute machine both on and off the stage.
New band you’d recommend?
Plastic Thieves. Awesome musicians, great guys and a very tight live performance…
Opening for this band would be ideal?
Probably Paramore…Hayley Williams is one incredibly talented lady…and AJ has always fancied his chances – so surely stranger things have happened, right?
Place you’d most like to tour?
Europe or South America
Quote that you’d like to pass on to our readers?
‘Book them and they will come…’
Reason for the title of your forthcoming release?
Insane is the title of our debut single, and when you guys hear the track it’ll all become pretty obvious we’re sure!
See us live at?
We’ve got an awesome run of gigs coming up throughout October and November supporting some incredible bands including Bigfoot, The Dead XIII, Jack The Envious and As Sirens Fall. We’ll also be making our London debut in May 2018 at Dementia Aware Fest at the New Cross Inn! Our full gig list can be found on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/tomorrowislost
The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?
So far as mainstream music goes – yes – absolutely…but we have to say there are some very exciting up and coming bands on the underground alt scene, and this is something that we feel very privileged to be a part of. Rock is very much alive and well…
We have just released our own brand of Raspberry Vodka Liqueur – ‘Shadow Spirit’, it’s 18.4% and pretty good too…
Variations you’d like to do on any of your tracks?
As a band we’re busy working on an acoustic arrangement for our set which is pretty exciting.
What do your fans mean to you?
As such a new band – our supporters are the absolute foundations of everything that we do…and we sincerely hope that they will stick with us on wherever our little journey is going to take us to next because the best is absolutely still yet to come!
X-rays or any other treatments needed for band related injuries?
You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?
Cass…most definitely Cass…
Zoo animal that best describes the personality of the band?
We’re a bit a mixed bag so…see attached 🙂
