Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Kenny: Thanks for having us. We’ve been great. Keeping busy so that’s always a good thing.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Memphis”?
Bobby: Memphis is actually inspired by when Kenny lived in Boston. He was training to be a cop when they put him undercover with Boston’s most notorious organized crime leader. He worked in his crew and earned their trust, but lived in constant fear of being caught. Meanwhile the mob boss had his own guy on the inside of the state PD, so there was basically a rat on both sides and they were chasing each other. Things got really out of hand. So Memphis is about that struggle….in Boston.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Kenny: I think this song has been wanting to be written for a while now, it was just a matter of when and what instrumentation would best represent it. We’ve all had our personal struggles and insecurities, and deal with them in many different ways. What better way to showcase them through an anthemic song. haha.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Kenny: Yes, we actually have released a music video for it which you can find on Vevo and Youtube.
The single comes off your new album The Spectrum -what’s the story behind the title?
Bobby: The album is a collection of a wide range of aspects of life, from personal struggle, adversity, nostalgia, youth, and so on. It covers the whole spectrum, hence the title.
How was the recording and writing process?
Bobby: It was unique in that it happened while the band was still forming. So it forced us to evolve as it was happening which also resulted in the variety on it.
Known for blending different genres together – how eclectic can expect this album to be?
Bobby: Again, I think there’s a ton of variety in subject matter, mood, and dynamics, but it’s still got our style gluing it together.
How has your previous musical background have influence this new project or this is a total departure from what you have done til now?
Bobby: It takes pieces of what we’ve done before, but really it’s new territory for all of us in some ways. Our backgrounds musically vary pretty widely so it also gives us a lot to work with.
Where did you find the inspiration for the songs and lyrics?
Kenny: The songs and lyrics came from places that we all were familiar with. Whether it’s a specific moment in our lives that we experienced, or a series of emotions that altered our perception of things.
Any plans to hit the road?
Bobby: Yes, but nothing announced yet. Stay tuned.
What else is happening next in Victory Dance’s world?
Bobby: Mortal Kombattttttt! Well, really lot’s of touring, new music, and flirting.
