1) Who are your top 3 influences?
2) How did you get your band name?
It’s an expression of how we feel towards ourselves and backs up the belief that no matter what you do in life there’s always hope and a way to express yourself.
3) How did you all meet?
We met via craigslist around July of 2018 and the rest is history…
4) What is your song writing process?
We usually sit down and just mess around playing random chords/drum beats until something comes up. Then we record a rough demo and let Austen (singer) listen to it about a million times and jam it again and it all comes together.
5) Plans for a year from now?
We’re working on an EP right now. So a year from now we hope to have nearly completed our debut album.
6) First gig experience?
Our first gig was awesome! Although at that time we only had 3 original songs so we were basically a cover band but the crowd loved it!
7) Biggest challenge?
Deciding which songs to put on our EP. We have about 10 songs total and selecting 5 is such a challenge.
8) Your dream tour to star on?
If warped tour ever made national comeback, definitely that!
9) Favourite thing about performing?
We all really just enjoy playing our music and feeling the energy of the crowd.
10) Favourite song to play live?
As we don’t have too many of our own songs yet, Dammit by blink-182. We always get the crowd to sing and dance along. So. Much. Fun.
11) What inspired you to your recent songs?
Heartbreak. We’re basically the Taylor swift of pop punk now.
12) What do you do when you’re not musically involved?
We typically just hang out and go to local shows when we aren’t jamming out. Apart from the 9-5 grind called life.
13) What gear do you use?
Dylan has a Papa Roach signature guitar he runs through a peavy, Garrett uses a Pearl drumset, and Mike uses a Ibanez bass run through a fender amp.
14) In your opinion, what’s your best song?
We just started recording a new song we put together called ‘I Just Want To Die’. It’s like if My Chemical Romance and Silverstein has a baby. It has an awesome riff, a sick breakdown, and it’s so easy to get it stuck in your head!
15) Who has the worst dress sense?
We can’t even tell you how many times Dylan has turned up to a show in his work uniform.
16) Funniest show story?
Just last month we headlined at a show and somebody yelled encore and none of us were prepared so we all named off a blink song. After the 4 count into it everyone ended up playing different songs. Super embarrassing but definitely unforgettable!
17) Pizza! What do you have?
Our producer/former rhythm guitarist is actually the head management trainer at Little Caesers so it’s definitely a Hot n Ready pepperoni night when we do pizza.
18) Who has the worst tattoo?
Austen for sure. He has an off brand avenged sevenfold tattoo across his back.
19) Most annoying member?
Garrett. Always talking at 100 mph, if you didn’t know him you’d think he was always on drugs.
20) Fast forward and you’re all millionaires. What do you do with the money?
I think it’s safe to say we’d make sure our families were taken care of before we spent it on ourselves. But after that, we’d definitely travel more!
