Awesome! We’re super stoked for the release of our new EP soon, and we’re very grateful for all the positive reactions we’ve gotten from the music video dropping, so things have been going great.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Daydreams”?
It is definitely one of our most energetic songs, and probably one that almost all of our fans and others can relate to in one way or another, playing live really allows for a lot of crowd interaction, and can really get them hyped up.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Brandon and Chris were both going through a lot at the time, and they both poured everything they had into this song, making it one of the most powerful on the EP.
How was the film experience?
It was a ton of fun, just being on the set was a dream come true to actually be part of our very own music video, the set up looked incredible, Alex did an amazing job putting it together, and just watching it all come together looking over each shot was awesome, and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I look forward to the chance to film another one.
The single comes off your new album Caricatures – what’s the story behind the title?
This song is really focused around hope. We felt that Daydreams was the perfect title because when your daydreaming your usually thinking of a place that you want to be in the future or something that makes you happy.
How was the recording and writing process?
It was very laid back, relaxed and was a really fun time. At points it felt like we weren’t even working and just hanging out which made the writing environment a lot more fun and relaxed. It definitely helped really get the songs out of us. There were sometimes where we were really stuck but when we cracked a certain part of the song it was the best feeling ever.
What was it like to work with Bryce Kariger and how did that relationship develop?
The relationship was actually developed by our guitarist Brandon. He talked to him on a few forums online that he was in and they became friends. We had heard the work he did for our friends and new that he was someone that would be good to work with.
How much did he get to influence the album?
It depended on the song but he did have an influence. There were a lot of suggestions that he made and parts that he helped write that made the songs what they are now.
What are those caricatures that get to inspire the lyrics on this material?
Caricatures in the EP really means human emotions that are exaggerated kind of like how a Caricature exaggerates certain traits in a person. So for this EP Depression, Anxiety, Betrayal, Hope are all themes of different songs.
Any plans to hit the road?
We’re setting up a tour for mid-December that will focus mainly on the Midwest. We’re all really excited to get back out on the road, and now with our new music out, people can be sure to expect that this will be one of our best tours yet.
What else is happening next in Ashes Of My Regrets’ world?
We’re playing a show on Halloween with In Dying Arms at Dingbatz in Clifton, NJ, we’ve got plans to play a lot of the new music so finally being able to share the new ep live with people is something we’re all looking forward to.
