Want to know more about Of Legions? We do so we asked them to take on our A-Z challenge!
A song that made you want to make music?
Down with the Sickness –Disturbed. There was nothing around at the time that was really comparable. Heavy songs with big ballads and solos arranged incredibly. What more do you need?
Best rider you’ve ever had?
A crate of beer, no food, no water. Just beer.
Craziest thing you’ve experienced in the band?
Not really sure, we love the crazy stuff that happens to us and at shows, more of that, please.
Deepest lyric one of your songs features? ‘
‘Your screams won’t be heard They’re just in your head Those voices, begging to be fed”
The easiest song you wrote?
‘Rot’ off the old EP, it’s literally 5 notes and a few seconds long.
Favourite song in your set?
Worthless, from the new album, ‘Face Value.’ Out 16.2.18
Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?
So many to choose from, for me it would have to be Jason Butler from Letlive. The man’s vocal range is crazy and has the voice of an angel.
Hardest thing about being in a band?
Timekeeping and making sure you’re constantly making new material.
Interesting fact about one of your members?
The guitarists birthday is on April 1st, what a joke.
Jokes you have in the band?
Drummer cant do a pull-up, it’s not even a joke he cant do a single pull up
Key to writing a song?
Make sure you have a sound in mind and that everyone is on the same wavelength.
Longest distance you’ve travelled to play a show?
We drove four and half hours once to play a festival, turned out every other band bar one had pulled out, it was certainly different.
Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?
Winston McCall, everything from the way he performs to the way he interacts with the crowd
New band you’d recommend?
Guilt Trip, the album they just bought out is one of my most played this year.
Opening for this band would be ideal?
Trash Talk/Knocked Loose, shows are always crazy and that’s what we love, the more people we can get involved with jumping on each other the better
Place you’d most like to tour?
Europe, the shows look crazy there and it’d be cool to go round and explore.
Quote you’d like to pass on to our readers?
Support your local music scene
Reason for the title of your recent/forthcoming release?
‘Face Value‘ is just what the album is all about, seeing things for what they are
See us live at?
Next show will be the album release in our hometown of Stoke on Trent at The Underground.
The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?
Not really, the thing with modern day music is that it’s so easy for people to put things out. The internet has made it so easy for someone with a laptop to upload a song and for it to be heard by the rest of the world, that’s not always a good thing.
Probably when we had the vocalist on the front of a t-shirt completely nude with his junk tucked in.
Variations you’d like to do of any of your songs?
We’d like to work on doing some acoustic versions of our songs.
What do your fans mean to you?
Sounds cliche but fans are what keep the band going and help them move forward with what they are doing. I think it’s important to remember that without fans, you don’t mean a thing
X-rays or any other treatments needed for band related injuries?
One of our old vocalists had his nose popped at a show, blood everywhere.
You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?
Probably the drummer, it’s always safe to blame the drummer.
Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band?
I’d say for most of the time its likely to be a sloth, for the other remainder when we have to be productive or on stage it’s more of a rabid ape.
