Hi Josh, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hey! Been really good! Just finished up on a Harry Potter marathon!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Fantasy”?
Fantasy is our latest single and probably the most proud I have ever been of a Call The Shots song so far.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Typical feeling and whatever for a girl, but since that song has been written, the views on this subject have changed, which is why my favourite line of the song is ‘I’m going to wait it out because I want to see if what I’m feeling’s wrong’
… And it was hahaha
How was the film experience?
Filming for this track was great!
We’ve done a bunch of music videos in the past and they’ve been a lot of fun, but this one was great from start to finish!
I don’t know if it’s because the song is super energetic or what, but the whole band had a great time recording this!
How was the recording and writing process?
A little different to other call the shots songs..
It started off as it usually does, where I write a simple song and hand it to the other guys and they tweak it and change their parts to something that fits to their playing style, but this time around we felt it needed something new and that’s where the string section came into the song!
Would this song be a departure from your previous material or a follow up?
Y’know, I think it’s a bit of both..
We’ve gone in a new direction, but we’ve still kept it Call The Shots, we just like trying new things and keeping it fresh 🙂
The single comes off your new EP – how’s that coming along?
EP is fully finished! Just figuring out a release date! We actually can’t wait to release this one. It has some really fun tracks as well as some of the most ‘feelsy’ CTS tracks ever released.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
We have a title, and a rouuuugh idea for a date, but people will find out very soon when that is.
Any plans to hit the road?
We are actually currently on the road as I’m talking to you!
I’m In the back of a tour van right now haha!
Apart from this tour, we have a bunch more plans to come including hitting some new places that we haven’t been before 🙂
What else is happening next in Call The Shots’ world?
I think we will go home, slack off, sleep forever, go back to our normal working jobs and give the band a break for awhile.
WHO AM I KIDDING, NO WAY!
It’s straight into learning a Good Charlotte cover set, writing new material and rehearsing for the next tour!
There’s never any slowing down with Call The Shots!
