How did the band started?
A lot of us we're all in bands from North Carolina that had broken up. We all knew each other through mutual friends. We all together, practiced and hung out and it went really well.
What’s your message at the time of writing a song?
Whatever is on our hearts really. Whatever the message of a song we are writing is what we feel we need to express to other people, or what we want people to hear.
What’s your method at the time of writing a song?
Usually one of us will have a few riffs written, or a basic idea or outline of a song. Its brought to practice then we all put our input into it until we feel like we have the song the way we want it to sound. Pretty simple.
Which bands do mostly influence your music?
Mastodon, Converge, Deftones, Codeseven...
What plans do you guys have for the future?
Lots and lots of touring, as much as we can fit into the year. Hopefully do some international tours and do some writing for the next record.
What has been the process behind your latest release? And from what you guys can say it differs from your past releases?
The new record is definitely a lot different sounding than our first EP release "Following Voices". The newest record has more singing, more dynamics and is a little creepier sounding all around. A totally different sound all around, you'll have to listen to them both yourself.
What’s the funniest prank you guys can remember been and/or took part while on tour?
We played a game called the "drink slap game", where if you have a straw in your drink once you have the drink outside of the place where you got it from, anybody can slap the drink out of your hand. The only way to keep your drink safe is to not have a straw in it. It's pretty funny to see someone's drink get smashed all over them.
Which country would you guys love to play?
Australia and every other country in the world.
Which are your hobbies?
Playing music, collecting comics other nerdy stuff, and basketball.
Are you guys Ok, with the direction of the band?
Very much so, if we wern't I dont think we would have made it this far together. We always want to keep our focus on the things that are most important and not the other crap that can easily distract you and pull you away from your goal. We're all very happy and are excited to see what happens next for us. We cant wait to do more tours, see more places and meet more people.
