Now residing in Brighton, pop rock quartet ReVerbed formed at school in Doncaster and have stayed together against the odds. Despite nearly throwing in the towel whilst recording recently released EP ‘Another Year, Still Here’, the quartet said: “Ultimately, we couldn’t bring ourselves to give up on six years of hard work. So, we are still here, still strong and still loving what we do”. Here they answer the A-Z interview…

A song that always gets us pumped it Prayer of the Refugee by Rise Against.

Craziest Moment You’ve Experienced In The Band:
Probably the most surreal was when we first started off, we were about 16 and ad just released our first material and it topped the myspace music charts above Eminem, biffy clyro and the xx. It was weird!

I think Guilfest supporting Gallows has got to be a big highlight.
Guest You’d Most Like To Feature On A Your Record:
Really tough, I think it would be pretty cool to have Mark Hoppus.

The Old Days Of Music Were Better Than Those Current, do you agree:
yes and no. I am a big fan of all music but I do predominately listen to music from 2007 and previous. However there are some good newer bands that I do enjoy, I think a lot of people are just nostalgic when it comes to music.
We are fairly regular when it comes to merch to be honest, tees beanies, stickers, cds.
Variations You’d Like To Do On Any Of Your Songs:
We like to get all of songs figured out before we head out on the road and in the studio, we take a long time to figure everything out and I think we’re all fairly happy with how they are so not a lot really!
What Bands Have You Seen Live and Regretted:
I haven’t regretted seeing any bands at all, I have just been slightly disappointed seeing certain bands due to sound quality or crowds at the gigs.
X-rays or any other treatments needed for band related injuries:
We’ve been very lucky to incur any injuries on tour or playing, it’s mainly our instruments that take the damage.
You could have written any song in history, which would you pick:
Rhiannon – Fleetwood Mac
Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band:
Probably an elephant. We can appear chilled calm and collective but we can aggressive and loud when needs to be!
