1. Who are your top 3 influences?

Our top three influences are The Menzingers, PUP, and all our friends bands.

2. You’re on the bill for Kill The Clock’s last show. What was it like getting the call?

Super stoked. They’ve been around for such a long time. We’ve played many shows together and it’s gonna be really special to send them off.

3. You haven’t released anything for a while… are we getting anything new soon?

Fun jams are in the works…

4. What is your song writing process?

Our songwriting process is different from song to song. Sometimes it starts with a riff, sometimes it starts with a melody. In short, we drink a lot of chocolate milk and listen to Phil Collins for inspiration.

5. What do you hope to achieve a year from now?

A year from now we’d like to have multiple tours with our friends and to finish up the batch of songs we’re working on. Maybe make my dad proud for once.

6. First gig experience as Ghostpool?

We wanted to be as prepared as possible for our first show so we waited forever to play. We ended up playing the 5 songs we had at Stamps, so it was brief.

7. Biggest challenge so far?

Our biggest challenge is money. It’s hard to come by and we don’t have enough of it to do the things we’d like to do. But we do what we can and try to keep good spirits.

8. What’s your favourite thing about performing?

The coolest thing about playing shows is getting to see our friends that come out and the 30 minutes that we can all get away from the stresses of life, and focus on the thing we love.

9. Dream place to tour?

Europe would be an absolute dream. There’s so much history there. Visiting Europe is on all of our bucket lists.

10. What inspired your previous songs, and songs to come?

I feel like our musical growth inspires all of our songs. Be the band you wanna hear.

11. What do you do when you’re not musically involved?

Jake’s been enjoying shooting on film a lot. It’s extremely satisfying to focus on getting a shot and so rewarding once you get it back. Aaron does amazing collage work. We all like to hang out and sleep.

12. In your opinion, what’s your best song?

The ones you haven’t heard yet…

13. Who has the worst dress sense?

Stoph. He’s not in our band but he won’t take off his crocs.

14. Funniest show story?

One time we played a show in the basement of a hoola hoop shop and that was pretty funny.

15. Pizza! What do you all have?

The genesis of this band was to fight against pizza shaming. True story.

16. Most annoying member?

Our broken ass van. By far.

17. Who has the worst tattoo?

Jake has a poorly aged barcode tattoo with his guitars serial number on his wrist. He still plays the guitar but deeply regrets the tattoo.

18. Fast forward and you’re millionaires. What do you do with the money?

Start a label and sign all our friends.
