A Day To Remember - 01.08.09
 
The following is a mini interview of generic questions that we posed to all bands that wanted to answer:

A Day to Remember - (Josh) [myspace] [ap.net profile]

1. How did you get your band name?
An original member that ended up being a ****** and got kicked out had this girlfriend who thought it was a cool name. It stuck, and here we are today.

2. How did this band get started?
A Day To Remember is a culmination of a bunch of different local bands around Ocala, FL. We all just met through shows and wanted to start playing together.

3. What bands are you influenced by?
You'd get a different answer if you asked every member on their own, but a general idea of what bands have influenced A Day To Remember are bands like - New Found Glory, Blink -182, Bury Your Dead, On Broken Wings.

4. If you could tour with any bands, past or present, who would it be and why?
Blink-182...period.

5. If you were a furry, what animal would you be? Why that animal?
I hate animals with all of my heart, so if I were any animal...I'd find a way to kill myself.

6. Why should people listen to your band?
I think people should listen to A Day To Remember if they want to. It's a pop punk band with heavy mosh parts. If that sounds interesting...check it out. If not, that's cool too.

7. If you were chosen to be in Guitar Hero/Rock Band, what song would you want in the game? How hard do you think it would be to five-star on expert?
I have no clue. I avoid those games because I'm horrible at them.

8. If you won a Grammy, who would you thank?
Mom and pops of course.

9. If you could change something about the music industry, what would it be?
Who cares.

10. Memorable tour experience?
Going to the ER in Tennessee because my guitarist Neil threw a mud ball at my eye. I was fucked up. Shit sucked.

11. What does AP.net mean to you?
It's a website for people to talk about music and bands, and to gossip. That's all it is to me.

12. What is your favorite song to play?
We used to cover "Dammit"...that ruled.

13. What is your vacation spot of choice?
I don't know...I wanna check out Hawaii I suppose.

14. What music reminds you of your childhood?
New Found and Green Day.

15. If you could have any super power, what would it be? Why?
I'd wanna fly...that shit would be sick.

16. Do you feel that your band has "made it"?
Nah. We're just dudes writing music we like. We'll always be striving for bigger and better things no matter how "big" we are.

17. What is something that most fans don't know about you?
My left foot isn't real. It's made of crystals.

18. What's your favorite holiday?
I like Halloween a lot.

19. What do you like to do in your spare time?
Spare time is hard to come by these days, so I can usually be found sitting in my living room watching TV with the family.

20. What kind of hidden talents do you have?
I used to be double jointed and could do some weird shit with my arms. That shit went out the window as I got older, and now I'm just a standard human.

I know they just released Homesick but I really wanna hear some new jams with K. Skaff on them.

The Summer Ends 08/06/09 04:16 PM

They already have Downfall Of Us All on Rock Band. It's pretty easy to 5*.

DanTGD 08/06/09 04:18 PM

Really want to hear A Day To Remember cover Dammit.

Yellowcard2006 08/06/09 04:18 PM

Jeremy is my favorite band member. A couple of this guys answers makes him seem...well like a jerk. And ADTR already have a Guitar Hero song it's "NJ Legion Iced Tea" it was released in the music store.

DanPiazza 08/06/09 04:21 PM

I wish this had been an interview with jeremy.

EastCoastLights 08/06/09 04:22 PM

in none of these interviews that i've read has the furry question been understood. being a furry is different from being an animal.

it's so much weirder.

froston 08/06/09 04:27 PM

Same interview questions asked in every interview.

Most people probably aren't aware of the fact that there are people out there who like to dress in animal suits and hump each other. Go figure.

ReadyForAction 08/06/09 04:52 PM

Iv yet to be informed or entertained by these stock reviews. I like the idea but nobody delivers

my band, ...and ATTACK!, answered it correctly. id get the link, but im too lazy right now. it was pretty obvious that we understood based on how our old drummer, Devin, answered.
