A song that made you want to make music?
I’d probably have to say Dragula by Rob Zombie, when I was a kid I think that whole album spiked my interest, that song in particular
Best rider you’ve had?
Any that has free beer
Craziest moment you’ve experienced in the band?
We’ve had a few adventures, hard to pin it to just one, to be honest they’re all a bit blurry, and probably for the best!
Deepest lyric one of your songs features?
I would say the lyrics on Rip Me Apart, the whole subject on that is pretty dark
Easiest song you wrote?
No Reason, that’s one of the older ones, it’s just simple and catchy
Favourite song in your set?
Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?
Be cool to do a song with The Prodigy
Hardest thing about being in a band?
Knowing who to trust and how far to follow what they say. Time and time again we’ve heard what we wanted to hear, from label types, fans, friends and even other bands. So often things get built up in your head by what people say, so when it turns out that the reality is a small glimpse of the image built it can really take its toll on people. You definitely need to have a thick skin.
Interesting fact about one of your members?
Chris is surprisingly good at arm wrestling
Jokes you have in the band?
Many, and they shouldn’t be repeated
Key to writing a song?
There isn’t always one! I guess try not, as hard as it is to get too attached in the writing process, as songs change and evolve and sometimes you lose what you originally thought was the key part of the song.
Longest distance you’ve travelled to play a show?
300 or so miles I would say, which for many isn’t far, but it sure felt it for the chance to play for 40 minutes
Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?
I guess its somewhere between John Frusciante, Rob Zombie and Tom Morello
New band you’d recommend?
Opening for this band would be ideal?
Place you’d most like to tour?
Germany, they seem to really like live music more than most
Quote you’d like to pass on to our readers?
It’s only illegal if you get caught
Reason for the title of your recent/forthcoming release?
In the lead up to recording the album we had so many obstacles, that it kinda nearly left us in ruins, so that’s what we’re kinda breaking out of I guess
See us live at?
Still some venues to be announced, so once that’s all wrapped up keep an eye on our social pages!
The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?
Well, the benefit of being here today is we have both new and old music, so I’d say the present as you just have more to choose from
We’re pretty vanilla on that front, the usual T-shirts and CDs
Variations you’d like to do on any of your songs?
There’s always variations, especially when you play the same songs for years, you come up with parts and wish it was in the recording
What do your fans mean to you?
They keep us going, give us reason to keep at it and have some faith in ourselves
X-rays or any treatments needed for band related injuries?
Scott had a shed/bush related injury that meant he had to be stitched up
You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?
Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band?
