INTERVIEW: Avant Garde

Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

Hey, whats up, its Cory here. I’ve been pretty well, thank you for asking! Stoked to finally release some music again!

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “I’m 100% Sure We Are Completely Not Sure”? Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?

There was no event in particular that made me write this song. I wrote it just to express my emotions about touring and getting back on the road, while remembering the rough times as well, like leaving loved ones.

Any plans to release a video for the single?

At this time, we don’t have any plans for a music video for this song, however we are in the making of one for a different song.

The single comes off your new album Fire Walk With Me – what’s the story behind the title?

We chose “Fire Walk With Me” because Joey and I (mostly Joey) are David Lynch fans, and Joey actually wanted to use that line for years even with A Skylit Drive. The titles to our songs don’t necessarily reflect what all the songs are about, we just wanted to use cool names with weird vibes 🙂

How was the recording and writing process?

The writing and recording process for this album was super fun and chill, how it should be. We weren’t rushed with anything, and just did it when we had spare time and made it a fun project! It was very refreshing making music again just to make it, without any pressure or drama.

Would you call this a total departure from all your previous projects?

Avant Garde is definitely way different from mine and Joey’s previous projects. Not only the fact that I am now singing, not drumming, but it is just a way different vibe and style.

Where did you find the inspiration for the songs and lyrics?

I wrote the lyrics just based upon life experiences and positivity. Some songs are about the world, politics, love, and even aliens.

Any plans to hit the road?

We would love to hit the road if we get the opportunity again!

What else is happening next in Avant Garde’s world?

The Album comes out in two days! please spread the word and love and help support Avant Garde! Thank you very much.
