Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Owen – Great! Thanks for having us back!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Collide”?
Peet – Collide is our newest single. It’s about 2 completely opposite lives embracing and enjoying the collision of each other, no matter the consequences. Its a friendly reminder that you don’t need to change to be with anyone.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Jonpaul – For the writing portion of this song, we let our producer take the wheel and he came back with this beautiful masterpiece!
Peet – There were many changes happening in the band at the time the song was written, and we felt that this song was an anthem for that season. We hope everyone can relate to it in some way or another.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Caleb – yes we do plan on releasing a video and we can’t wait to share it with you!
How was the recording and writing process?
Jonpaul: It was awesome. Very tedious for every part we needed to get down to make the song the way it is and how it feels.
What was it like to work with Bryan Todd and how did that relationship develop?
Owen – right from the start its been awesome to work with Bryan. He’s an incredible songwriter and producer.
How much did he get to influence the song?
Peet – Bryan is an excellent producer and songwriter, so he did a lot to the song! It’s great to get his sound on the track.
Do you tend to take a different approach when collaborating with someone else rather than working on your own?
Owen – yes when collaborating with someone, you really gotta open up to the process and just go with the flow.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Caleb – Yes we are working very hard on new music and are in the studio.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Caleb – We don’t have a tentative date yet with everything happening in the world but we hope to have one soon.
Any plans to hit the road?
Peet – We are still banking on a tour later this year. Make sure you stay up to date on our socials (@5WESTmusic) for future announcements and updates. Plus, we are always down to talk with you guys on socials too!
What else is happening next in 5 WEST’s world?
Jonpaul: Big things. Things that will change our lives! Sadly we can’t say what it is yet but you guys will love it. Thank you all so much for the constant love and support you guys give us!
