Witterquick are the Brit rockers that have been making waves in the underground scene over the past year or two including a sold out UK tour with Nothing But Thieves. Their forthcoming EP Hiding Palce is set for release on March 27th, 2017 and we asked the band to take on our A-Z challenge!
A song that made you want to make music?
Anything on Appetite for Destruction – Rocket Queen by Guns and Roses
Best rider you’ve ever had?
Buffets and minibars – most of the riders on tour with Nothing But Thieves.
Craziest thing you’ve experienced in the band?
Can’t beat finding out that a fan had some of our lyrics tattood on her ribs.
Deepest lyric one of your songs features?
Depends on the song, all of them have a lot of depth. Hiding Place is pretty raw.
Easiest song you wrote?
Easiest has to be Soldiers, it was one of those that just happened without us realising.
Favourite song in your set?
Friend, one of the new tracks.
Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?
Get Simon Neil from Biffy on the phone.
Hardest thing about being in a band?
Having to give up all of your time for it.
Interesting fact about one of your members?
Interestingly enough Will is a qualified chef.
Jokes you have in the band?
Jokes are our thing, fans quickly pick up on that.
Key to writing a song?
Keeping it honest. Let it happen and don’t imitate.
Longest distance you’ve travelled to play a show?
Last time we played Glasgow in Scotland, we’re from Exeter.
Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?
More often that not any professional musician is inspiring in one way or another.
New band you’d recommend?
Nothing But Thieves, if they still count as new.
Opening for this band would be ideal?
Oh Biffy Clyro would be incredible.
Place you’d most like to tour?
People want us everywhere but Japan is a dream.
Quote you’d like to pass on to our readers?
Quite possibly the best quote of all time “Do or do not, there is not try” – Yoda
Reason for the title of your recent/forthcoming release?
Rumour has it that Hiding Place is about the tough times we’ve had as a band.
See us live at?
Send yourselves to your nearest venue, we’ll be there eventually!
The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?
That’s hard to disagree with, but there are some really exciting things happening at the moment. Every decade has something awesome to offer.
Under the radar things are always interesting. We like to get plectrums done and give them to fans for free.
Variations you’d like to do of any of your songs?
Virtually every song can be played so many different ways. If given the time we’d never stop making variations.
What do your fans mean to you?
Without our fans we’d be nothing. Hearing from them honestly makes this whole thing worth doing.
Xrays or any other treatments needed for band related injuries?
Xrays have only happened so far in Glasgow when an over-excited fan jumped on Will and they both hit the deck pretty hard.
You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?
Yeah it’s probably going to be Will, but saying that, often he’s the first one there.
Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band?
Zebu – A unique, and interesting cow type beast, that stops at nothing to complete its task. Because we probably can’t choose Unicorn.
