We have awesome. Busy as hell but we are in a good place right now.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Who Am I”?
This song is about becoming someone and no matter who you are you can be someone. You look in the mirror one day and see yourself as a no one, but you can be a somebody.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
The song is inspired more from the name of the EP and the theme we are looking for which all becomes clear when you see us live and listen to our music.
How was the filming process and experience behind it?
The filming process was so much easier than we expected it to be and really fun thanks to Scott at Darknorth Media. It was our first music video so we where expecting things to look much longer than it did. Once it was finished it was better than we could of hoped for.
The single comes off your new album Revolt – why naming the album after this track in particular?
This is the intro track to the EP and was named after the EP itself. It is the introduction to the EP and sets the scene for you before we get into the juicy music
How Metallica and Five Finger Death Punch has influence your writing?
Metallica is a influence in most metal now a days, even if you cant hear it in the music. They are one of the big bands and where you start listening to metal. You can hear the influence in our music as we have a lot of thrash in there but we also play more modern music like 5FDP.
What role does Leeds play in your music?
Leeds is a major part of our music as that is where the band was born. It is where we find all our members, and we play with a lot of other like minded bands who we have made friends with along the way.
Where did you find the inspiration for the songs and lyrics?
Inspiration is found in many places. The magic really happens when we all get together in a room and jam. Our writing process is pretty much come up with a starting point and we all work on it until we are happy with it. Chris usually comes up with a melody for the lyrics at this point before he tried some ideas out.
Any plans to hit the road?
There is some plans, but it is all in the planning stages so nothing to annouce as of yet. Follow our facebook or visit our website for more up to date news
