Absolute Access: Boysetsfire Interview

Posted by - 12:22 PM on 01/18/12
The Casting Out is out, and a group of familiar fire-starters are back. Today, we're excited to bring you a special interview with long time seminal hardcore band, Boysetsfire. This is the first interview they've done since their regrouping, as well as the first one in a very long time. You can listen to a new song in the replies, so be sure to catch them at Bamboozle.
QuoteWhen you get to a certain age and time, you start to realize a lot of things, like how there are hopeless situations. They say you mellow out more as you get older, but we just got more angry [laughs]. As far as the hopeless situation, Misery Index starts off with an acoustic song in the beginning of "Walk Astray". And it was about not wanting to hear it anymore from people. I don't want to hear you talking about freedom and all that kind of shit if you're not going to do something about it, you know? We've got all the protest songs and all the bullshit, let's move past that and do something. I think we were really attracted to a more darker side, and feeling that there's sort of a force of nature that you can't really compete against. I feel that a lot of people have that frustration in them all the time, and it helped people relate a little. It made us seem more human; we weren't just a bunch of preachy freaks [laughs].

As much as I enjoy BSF, I'm still pretty bummed The Casting Out is gone. Their shows were always awkward in the best of ways.

As soon as the main riff starts in the song, you KNOW it's BSF, and I just get a big smile on my face.

Live. You should check out all of their discography, but After the Eulogy has always been my fave.

They'll tour. They are going to record as well. I'm sure you'll see a full tour after the Bamboozle.

I would like to see 95% of all bands go away forever. Boysetsfire would fill that void more than adequately.
