Created by a group of friends, the group consist of past and present members of Bullets and Octane, Unwritten Law, Lit, The exposed, Longway, Rufio and more. Individually the members have toured the world and have spent time performing on stages at some of music's largest festivals including Warped Tour, SoundWave, etc. and have toured alongside bands such as the Buzzcocks. Suicidal Tendencies, Sugar Ray, Zebrahead, Alkaline Trio, Horrorpops, Bad Religion, and The Flatliners. Together, they bring an old familiarity that is missing in today's music industry and prove once and for all that Rock and Roll, in fact, NOT dead. R360 caught up with the lads direct from LA to chat with them about their newly released album.
R. Thanks for taking the time out to chat with us here at R360. Your first full length album is about to explode on June 17th and no doubt with make a lot of noise. Tell us a little about the making of the album from a lyrical and production perspective. What can the audience expect to hear?
R. When it comes to recording music, do you consider yourselves to be ritualist? Do you feel a certain way when you are about to begin a project?
R. PUNK music has evolved and changed over the decades. What's your view on where it stands today? Do you think its as revolutionary as it was in the past?
R. Dead Weight is the first official lyric video from the upcoming album. Tell us a little about the song and the message behind it?
R. How would you describe your music/art/entertainment for the public audience if they have never seen seen you before?
R. What do you you think your "biggest break" or "greatest opportunity" has been so far in your musical career?
Last but not least...
R. Just for fun... fill in the blanks!
Without music, we would be... Janitors, waiters, light guys.
Music is... Life.
Our music makes us feel... United.
We write the songs because... It's therapy.
Support music because... You believe in it.
