Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
We have been amazing thank you, very busy but it’s all been a lot of fun and really worth it.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Come to Me”?
Of course, we’re all super proud of that song.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
I don’t think it was any even it particular I think it was more a realisation that things need to change. When we were writing this record, we looked at the world in a very dark way and focused on a lot of things we don’t agree with but we also saw a lot of finger pointing and blame shifting. We felt that for a change to happen you have to start with yourself and be the change you want to see. It seemed almost hypocritical to pretend we were wiser or all good just because we were pointing out the problem so the song is based around the things in ourselves, personally that we don’t like or aren’t proud of and wanting to change them. It’s about fighting your own demons before fighting someone else’s. I like to say it means “just because you’re a nice person doesn’t mean you’re a good person”
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Now that would be telling (laughs). We’ve got a few things up our sleeve but we don’t want to give too much away at the moment. All we can say is it will be worth the wait.
The single comes off your new EP The Human Condition – what’s the story behind the title?
The phrase “the human condition” basically means everything that makes us human, our ability to build and adapt but when we look at the world or the way the world seems to be going that’s not what we see in humanity. All we really see is our ability to destroy and harm one another over things that shouldn’t cause that kind of pain, people hate each other based on religion, sexuality and race and it just makes us sick. That’s what the record is basically based around so we kind of changed the meaning of the human condition from something positive to something a little more fitting at the moment.
How was the recording and writing process?
It was strange to be honest there were some songs that we started writing before we’d even really released “Sorrow and Cyanide” that weren’t finished until right before he hit the studio and other songs that began much later in the writing process that just fell into place very quickly, but I think that really helped make the record what it is some songs were rewritten over and over until they were what we wanted and others just felt right straight away.
As for the recording process, it was actually much more relaxed this time around we took our time with it and worked to make it sound the way we had in our head. It also helped that Phil, the producer really understood what we were going for and he just worked really well with us everything just clicked.
What aspect of humanity did you get to explore on this record?
Honestly, we really dug deep into the darker side of things on this record, focusing on everything that we found wrong in the world and in ourselves, we aren’t exactly happy people and we really used that in the writing process. To be honest it was a weird feeling because it felt good to get these things down on paper and produce something we are very proud of but it was pretty difficult to look at the world in such a dark light it really tests your faith in people.
Any plans to hit the road?
We are currently in the process of booking our next tour at the moment, aiming to be on the road early October so you will definitely see us on stage, where we belong, soon.
What else is happening next in Never Found’s world?
Just working really hard to make this record as big as it can be, we will be planning more tours after the release, a new range of merchandise and we are already beginning the writing process on a follow up. We have a few more tricks up our sleeves but you will all just have to wait and see! We’re making our move and we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon, next stop world domination!
