Hello Grayhunter! Thank you for speaking with me today!
Tell us about your latest release! Our most recent single "Waves" came out February of this year. It is a song about the emotional roller coaster of substance abuse and addiction that aims to eliminate the stigma attached to them. We're very happy about how well it's been received so far.
What was the creative process like for it? We all collaborated on this single. David C. wrote the original arrangement, Reisha wrote the melody and lyrics, then Dave G. and Allen and Rich used their hard rock/metal influences to help give the song our signature dark and heavy sound.
Who are some of your biggest musical influences? Some of our biggest influences are Marianas Trench, Pat Metheny, Rush, The Replacements, and System of a Down.
What has been the most surreal moment of your career so far? To be honest, our entire journey as a band has been a surreal experience. From playing sold-out shows and outdoor concerts to working in top-quality recording studios, we are beyond proud of our accomplishments since we first got together in 2018.
How do you hope for your music to affect the world? Our songs are mainly about spreading mental health awareness. Our goal is normalize talking about mental illness and overcoming trauma by using catchy music and lyrics because it is a universal language that can translate even the most difficult concepts to grasp. So we hope that listeners will hear our messages, understand the importance of prioritizing mental health, and speak up about it more.
What is inspiring you right now? We are so inspired by the fact that music venues have started to reopen and book shows again. It shows the resilience of the music scene, and the fact that we can perform again and interact with our fans in person has lifted our spirits immensely after such a difficult year.
Are there any upcoming projects we should be on the lookout for? We have a special live acoustic single and video featuring a song from our EP Comeback Kid, and we have a show coming up at Arlene's Grocery on Friday, September 10th!
