HOT TAKES: Getting to know Deepshade

Welcome to the feature; Hot Takes! We chat to a band or artist that we have unearthed as some what of a hidden gem and allow them the chance to introduce themselves to you, the reader.

Q1 – Who is in your band?

David Rybka Guitar/Vocals

Tom Doherty Bass

Paul Barlow Drums

Q2 – What is your take on your own sound?

Super Strange Dark Psychedelic Stoner Desert grunge

Q3 – If someone was listening to your music for the first time, what song would you tell them to listen to and why?

Tough Question.. Probably Sad Sun (Radio Edit), it would give the listener the heavy and the mellow.

Q4 – What is the plan for 2020?

Our 2nd full length album is released on May 1st, we have been played on Planet Rock Radio and Kerrang Radio to name a few, things are chugging along like a steam train and also – we’re in LockDown Baby!

Q5 – What is the one song you wish you wrote?

Comfortably Numb – Pink Floyd

Q6 – What three bands inspired or continue to inspire you the most?

Many old bands like Sabbath, Deep Purple, Zeppelin, Dylan, Neil Young, Hendrix, Doors, and all the new bands coming out of the Stoner/Pysch scene like King Buffalo, SunGrazer, 1000mods, colour haze, black rainbows etc..

Q7 – Where can our readers see you live or listen to your music?

You can buy all our music direct from us from our BandCamp.

Q8 – If your band was an animal, what would it be and why?

Probably a ViperFish! Put us all together and we would probably turn out looking like one, it’s from the deepest parts of the ocean.
