Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Answer: We are good thank you! Thanks for having us.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Beast”?
Answer: Ahhh yes “Beast”, it becoming true to its name. “BEAST is a fast paced, aggressive song which motivates submerged human emotion, and deals with the dark subject of inner demons that we can all face.”
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Answer: No. We as a band have always had good inspiration for our songs. Our inspiration for our songs has always been “us” as in Human beings and the world we live in. We are fascinating creatures and actually quite complex. So as a song subject we are ideal. our main focus is on actions and consequences of peoples actions.
Any plans to release any sort of video for the track?
Answer: We released a lyric video for this track, which is currently streaming on our Youtube Channel and on Hardcore World Wide’s Youtube channel. With the current Covid situation it has not been possible for us to shoot a live video.
How was the recording and writing process?
Answer: Slightly more difficult than usual, because of the Covid pandemic, so a lot of it was done remotely with a lot of video calls between members, and we had to dive into a studio as and when we were allowed to do. but it was a good challenge and despite the difficulties it has come out really well.
What role does Isle of Wight play in your music?
Answer: The Isle of Wight is our home town, and the birth place of our band, so it has a special place in our hearts as its where this crazy journey began!!
How has Dillinger Escape Plan and Terror influenced your writing?
Answer: Terror has very much influenced us in our sound and style of music, and we add our own twists and personal influences also which inevitably means we have a very current tone to the song. we never duplicate or imitate our influences. Dillinger has influenced us more on the balls out approach to our music and the intensity of the songs on record and in our live performances.
Does the new single mean we can expect new material – how’s that coming along?
Answer: Ahhhhh a group of gents such as ourselves must never reveal our intentions. you will have to wait and see…….
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Answer: Lips are sealed.
What else is happening next in HOUNDS’ world?
