Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
We have been doing great thank you! We are so excited to be working with San PR and really doing everything we can to push the release of our debut EP ‘Lost Sense Of Life’ we can’t wait to see what people think of the record.
Can you talk to us more about your single “Whispers”?
‘Whispers’ is the first track off the EP and it’s also our debut Music Video that is coming out on November 11th, it was the first ever song that we wrote as a band so it is a special song to us. We wanted to write a song about just how far depression can push you and show people that there is more that should be done to help those out there suffering from the evil disease.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
We were inspired to write the song because of some personal experiences in our lives involving people that have unfortunately taken their own life, so we have seen firsthand the impact that it can leave on their families lives forever. We wanted to put out a strong message to let people know that they aren’t alone when they are battling depression, each song was written lyrically about experiences that our vocalist Jake Searle has had in his life.
The single comes off your new EP Lost Sense of Life – what’s the story behind the title?
The title of the EP is one of the lyric lines from the chorus of one of the songs of the EP called ‘Predictable Pain’, we decided that this titled fitted the EP best because lyrically the record was written in a dark time emotionally and we wanted to voice our feelings and put all of our emotions into this record to connect with people who have had the same experiences and feelings.
How was the recording and writing process?
We wrote the whole record before we went in to the studio and we had been practicing the record for over a year before we decided that we were happy with the songs so it made the recording process a lot easier. We recorded the EP with George Lever from G1 Productions, he really pushed us to make this the best record that we could, he helped us add more impact to our style and gave us guidance through any issues or problems that we had.
What aspects of depression and suicide would you be exploring with this album?
The EP explores many things involving depression, it shows the anger, the sense of feeling lost within yourself, and all the personal demons and thoughts that you have to fight in your head. It also shows the feeling of being betrayed by someone that you once considered close. So the EP looks at many different areas of depression.
Any plans to hit the road?
We would absolutely love to hit the road and we would jump at the chance! A tour is definitely on the cards, we’ve just got to search for the opportunity and make it happen.
What else is happening next in From Rust’s world?
What happens next is what everyone should look out for! We are going to push this EP, play as many shows as we can and make an impact on the music scene. One thing for sure is that we are now writing our first full length album and can’t wait to get back into the studio! We are looking forward to going back to George and recording more music with him because he knows what he’s doing and he has a brilliant understanding of music. Overall it was an awesome experience!
