Q. I am curious, what’s the meaning out behind Decyfer Down?
A. The meaning of ‘decipher’ is to interpret something of worth. We chose the name because it represents our purpose and vision for the band: to interpret what God has done in our life and through our music.
Q. For people who don’t know, how did this all started?
A. This all got started several years ago when we wanted to create music that was able to reach the fringe people of our society and culture. Through a number of trials and stories God has given us the ability to create records and music that have given hope to many people.
Q. What’s the message you guys want to transmit with your music?
A. Through our music we want to translate God’s grace and love to people. God’s ready to meet them where they are at, all they have to do is accepting him and allow him to change their lives.
Q. Will you guys be releasing any music videos soon?
A. There is always talking of music videos.
Q. What's the story behind your latest release Crash?
A. The writing process for ‘Crash’ was us trying to talk about the many things God has done in our life, and also the many things He has delivered us from as we continue to strive in our Christian faith towards where we want to be. The songs have been able to connect with a wide range of people from all walks of life, and we’ve been able to see how the music has impacted so many people. Seeing lives changed gives us the fuel to continue on and to write more music.
Q. What's the difference in the sound with Crash and your past releases?
A. I think ‘Crash’ is a more mature sound than our past records, but it’s similar with the heavy guitars and big melodies.
Q. What plans do you guys have for the future?
A. We plan to continue to be used by God in whatever capacity He has for. After the last 10 years, there is no telling what he has planned for us!
Q. Have you guys been or took part while on tour? And if yes, which has been the funniest one?
A. Recently we started a set, Chris forgot we had started and decided to run out to the bus. He eventually came back up to the stage figured he would jump in even though he was a little late.
Q. What bands influence you guys?
A. A lot of our influences comes from the legends of rock; however, some of the best examples on how to be Christian “rockstars” come from our friends in Skillet.
Q. Are you guys OK with the direction of the band?
A. We never fully know the direction of the band, but we just try to stay in God’s will and trust Him to direct our steps.
