-Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
We’ve been good, excited to get this record out and start getting the Unwill train moving full speed, baby!
-Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Sometimes”?
“Sometimes” was definitely the darker end of what we’ve left behind, we didn’t really know what we were going to do next or what was going to happen but we knew things were going to change and that we weren’t going to curl up and die.
-Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Too much to narrow, It’s more the feeling of that time embodied in the song. We will get let down over and over but we need to find the strength to rise up. Change.
-What was it like filming the video?
Definitely different. We were at a pretty low spot and did it all on our own with what we could. We’re much more excited to get the video for “Keep It Gold” out and continue to push our vision for the new record.
-You have a new album coming out called Can’t Kill Me – what’s the story behind the title?
Through everything we’ve been through as a band we just want to get out there and rock out. We want to spread love through music and find a way to let go of the hurt and give people a place to be free. “Can’t Kill Me” embodies the spirit of that for us.
-How was the recording and writing process?
It’s been pretty wild, we just coop ourselves up in a barn and start making music. A lot of it is us jamming and putting all the pieces together like a puzzle. We just follow the flow of what feels right to us in the moment.
-How much did your hometown of Rochester influence the writing of the record?
We’ve all been Rochester natives our whole lives and we really want to try and bring some new light into this city with “Can’t Kill Me.” To create a place where people are free from judgement and free to let go and have a good time.
-You said, “this record is a journey of ego” – what aspect of ego did you get to explore on this record?
The ego is the exploration of the spirit, we live through this life and often lose concept that you, yourself do not exist without belief. You are the ego. “Can’t Kill Me” became a voice of that struggle with yourself to either let the ego consume you or find a way to move forward and be free.
-Any plans to hit the road?
Planning on hitting the road as soon as possible!
-What else is happening next in Unwill’s world?
