You can check out my interview with Anthony Raneri (Bayside) The band's fantastic new album, Cult, is available now (read my review) and will be heading out on its headlining tour next month.
And the same weekend we were doing those shows, Long Island Fest was happening in like a VFW Hall and I Am The Avalanche was playing. And I remember thinking like I would much rather be at Long Island Fest right now. I don't care, I don't want to be in front of these 10,000 people who don't get what I'm doing and as soon as we're done playing they're gonna go buy a confederate flag beer coozie. I would much rather play in front of a thousand people in a VFW Hall in Long Island right now. And that...
You can check out our new interview with The Summer Sethere. The band is currently on the Tilly's stage on this summer's Warped Tour, and will be touring the U.S. in the fall. The band's brand new album Legendary is out now.
Yeah, we've been radio minded with this record especially. We've always made pop music; as far as a band, we've always been a little more pop lenient. I think there were always times during our past two records in which we thought about doing some radio stuff, I think it's hard for a band to push to radio too pre-maturity, because if it fails, you're blacklisted. So we'd always think about it...and then pump the brakes and make a new record.
You can check out our interview with Architects (UK)here. The band is currently on the Monster Energy stage, and are not to be missed, especially if you like heavy music. The band will be writing a new record in September, as well doing another U.S. tour in the fall.
"Devil's Island" was one of the hardest songs to write because it's so prominent about where we're from and the London riots that were going on at the time, and it was something that we'd like to get across in a nice way, and we were really happy about it.
You can read our new interview with Big Chocolatehere. He's currently on the Spotify stage on this summer's Warped Tour, and someone you definitely want to check out if you like electronic music.
I was nervous, because that was my first real breath into this kind of stuff, I really feel like I've grown a lot and changed a ton since the last two years. So I was really nervous to come back and see how the Warped crowd would take the new stuff, and now my worries are all gone.
You can read our interview with New Found Gloryhere. The band is currently getting ready to release a new live album in the fall, which includes three new tracks.
I think the live record definitely captures how we are as a live band, with the crowd interaction and people singing along, it really sounds awesome in my opinion, we've been getting mixes back from it. We did it in Anaheim. But the live record is also going to have three new studio songs on it as well.
You can check out our brand new interview with August Burns Redhere. We talk Warped Tour, their brand new record Rescue & Restore, and more. You can catch the band on the Kia Soul Main Stage all summer on the Vans Warped Tour.
We've been a part of this scene for like 10 years man, and it's our home, it's our family, it's what we know, it's what we've been a part of for so long. We want to encourage the young guns coming up to step outside the box and to be artists and to create something that is theirs and has it's own identity, it's own color.
With The Dangerous Summer announcing their new album, Golden Record today, I figured it was only right to ask AJ some questions about the new album and the future of the band. You can read my short interview with him here.
Matt and Ben were definitely sent from heaven. They came at the perfect time. We were trying out drummer after drummer and guitarist after guitarist. After so many misses, we finally found the men we were looking for. It was so hard to go on day after day, not feeling like our band was at it's full potential, but we made it through. We always make sure that we push through any hard time. When Tyler left the band, we recorded War Paint a month later. When Bryan left, we...
Check out my interview with H.R. (Bad Brains) here.
Yes... [Adam Yauch of Beastie Boys] was a very creative, effective, and responsible individual who had the intelligence to know that something unique was going on. Out of that uniqueness, he represented to his kids and loved ones that he had an image of versatility. And that's what he would encourage the band to do. He encouraged us to remain self-sufficient and also as positive as humanly possible. So through that emphasis from him, and that priority for him wanting the group to remain true to the word and true to the core as we could, we understood exactly where he was coming from. It just made sense. He talked about how he...
I was lucky enough to get to ask Hayley Williams some questions about Paramore's upcoming Self-Titled album which drops in a few months. We talked about the sound of the new album, the band's rocky past three years and more.
Most of the faces from The Company We Keep are recognizable figures, with members of The Receiving End Of Sirens, Motion City Soundtrack and Misery Signals contributing to the cause.
