We had a little talk with This Burning City about their release ‘Ignorance’ and what their new EP is going to sound like. There’s also a lot more to know about this Hardcore five piece and you can find out everything below:
Hello Chaps! We loved ‘Ignorance’! What does the new EP sound like compared?
Hey there! If you like Ignorance, then just you wait for the magic that is our EP. haha. Ignorance was made to be a taste of what’s to come, and we can safely say that we’re pretty proud of what we’ve accomplished. But what’s more exciting is that the EP will sound bigger, better and fuller than ignorance did. So overall, it’s worth being excited about.
Being a band from a small town, has it made it harder to really get yourselves out there?
It’s definitely a challenge. I know from the get-go it was tough to get out of our small town to play shows. But being able to fit in smoothly into the Kingston music scene has definitely helped us, We’re happy to say we’ve crossed that hurdle, and that getting shows isn’t a problem any more. We love our home town, but musically, i’d definitely say Kingston, Ontario has really been home to us,
What is the plan for 2015? Touring a lot?
The plan for 2015 is to finally get ourselves out there. Thus far we’ve had little to show people. With the upcoming EP, the plan is to tour and push ourselves into the market. We’ve made so many friends so far, and we look forward to meeting new faces and having new opportunities open up for us.
Who are your inspirations as a band?
Our biggest inspirations are the overall musical stylings of Dead and Divine/Ritual, the high energy and emotional connection of The Chariot, the intricate and unique guitar bits of Stray From The Path, the melodic and raw influence from Prophets, and the heavy in-your-face style of Of Temples.
If you could play one festival/venue in the world what would it be?
To be honest, any of them. I feel like it’s the generic response to say Warped Tour, but other than that, maybe Koi Fest or Heavy MTL. But you can find us smiling just as much playing small time venues so we aren’t all too picky.
What’s some of your favourite hardcore bands at this moment in time?
We’re guilty of not really listening to a lot of new upcoming bands. I know we’ve been listening to a lot of the new Color Morale stuff. But as for our favourite hardcore bands? Probably any of the listed ones in our influences. You’ll find us jamming to them on the daily.
Describe your upcoming EP in five words?
Raw, powerful, unique, heavy, and experimental.
