Wark: What's your name and what do you do in From First To Last?
Phil: I am Phil gorgeous and I do the singing / screaming / hip and ass shakin’ and have been known to destroy a Mic stand or two.
Wark: How long have you dudes been playing in a band?
Phil: We’ve been a band together playing and shit for about 5 months now…going on 6 soon.
Wark: I heard that labels want to pay you alot of money to release your music with their logo on it.
Phil: hahaha yes that’s very true…its kind of funny. We’ve got a good list of labels into us, and were trying to decide what we really want from all of this and hope we make the best decision.
Wark: When do you plan on releasing a full length?
Phil: sometime next year. We’ve got like 3-5 songs ready to go. In fact were going to demo them in September, as well as record an Xmas song immortal is releasing call Santa cause. Saosin’s on it as well.
Wark: Those guys are really good friends of mine, they shred!
Phil: Yeah they’re sweet we have some dates with them real soon form Florida to California I believe. Then we do the from autumn to ashes /every time I die /cave in us tour, and we’re soooo stoked about that!
Wark: yeah that’s pretty insane dude, I heard your line up changed since this recording.
Phil: Yeah, we have Jon from Cali (sweet fucking kid) currently on bass and he’s been helping us so much. He’s been practicing guitar spins with his bass. We also added a DJ and a strings section but that’s not a big deal. Actually Jon’s cousin is really the emcee form Linkin Park…we’re soooo going to try and hook up that tour I think it’d be the most amazing experience of my life…we didn’t really add a DJ or strings though sadly, or we’d be as cool as them.
Wark: yeah, BUMMER!
Phil: hahaha, but his cousin seriously is that dude, its weird.
Wark: are you kidding?
Phil: No. It’s funny, I know but neat as well he found out at a funeral recently and was like wha?
Wark: Whoa...that’s insane.
Phil: I wanna see 34567456745678 kids a night push moshing (mooshing) to us. I’d die.
Wark: Are you all straight edge?
Phil: All but one, and two of us are vegan, two are vegetarian and one pussy...um I mean meat eater...we give Travis sooo much shit about eating meat but hes good on tour and we give derek shit about smoking.
Wark: That sucks, poor dude
Phil: I don’t mind his shooting crank, cause it makes his drumming amazing, but cigarettes will kill you everyone knows that!
Wark: Yeah seriously. Haha
Phil: I mean I’ve seen truth commercials…ever seen one about heroin besides the "this is your brain on drugs"? No and they don’t show those so heroin and shit are A-OK now I’m sure.
Wark: So all summed up... what are your plans for the rest of the year up ‘til you record your album ?
Phil: We plan to tour like crazy, meet tons of kids shake our asses like a bitch; find a label to call home; make videos, fans, songs, and babies...you know regular band shit. Oh I plan on finding more garbage pail kids from other countries too!

Wark: What turns you off?
Phil: kids at mosh shows who CANNOT mosh.... Its annoying crap and when people talk shit out of jealousy or envy...you guys get alot of kids on your forum that seem to be very opinionated and don’t have much a clue what they’re talking about...and boy do they love to generalize like WHOA!
Wark: If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you get to the pearly gates?
Phil: something about me getting all the foreign garbage pail kids ever made. Actually, I don’t know probably something about me being able to have fun and love.
