LOMM: Can you give a little biographical and historical info; who is involved in the band, and how did you guys meet up?
Josh: We’re from central New Jersey. We’re composed of Mike, Josh, Jesse, and Kenny. We met up because we’re all cute and play instruments real well.
LOMM: Ahaha, great J
Pandemic has taken an emotional toll on everyone yet the arts have been hit especially hard. The musicians are vulnerable to financial upheaval. How have you guys been holding up?
Kenny: It’s been kinda rough but not too bad at the same time. We’ve been able to use the time to work on new music that we should be able to finish up shortly.
LOMM: On the other hand you seem to have had a productive time. Is that right?
Kenny: Yes we have new stuff in the works that is nearly finished. A couple songs are just about in the mixing/mastering stage.
LOMM: How did the initial musical and thematic elements evolve?
Kenny: We wanted to combine heavy with pretty. I think we did pretty well.
LOMM: Are you happy with your product? What aspects of it do you think you guys nailed, and what parts do you think you could improve upon?
Josh: We’re pretty cash money all-around. Main focus right now for the band is physical cultivation. We’re all getting massive.
Kenny: I think our first EP Deathwish came out pretty well for the most part. This time around we want to take a little longer getting everything mixed how we want to get the best sound possible.
LOMM: How has the overall reception been?
Kenny: The people can honestly just not get enough. We get Dm’s almost every day asking when we will have new material out. We always tell them: Your patience will be rewarded soon.
LOMM: Have you ever been on a tour? Given live performances? Is it tough for you not to be able to do so now?
Kenny: Not yet. We were planning on trying to tour potentially last summer but we see how that worked out. Once the world opens back up we will try and get out there.
LOMM: Could you tell us about the lyrics / themes /concepts you focus on or plan to focus on? How did the ideas come about, and how do they influence the writing process? Who is writing the lyrics?
Josh: Mike writes all the lyrics. They’re usually pretty sad.
LOMM: Who is composing the songs?
Kenny: Josh writes everything to start out but we all add our own parts and other ideas in the mix to get the final product.
LOMM: What bands do you draw your inspiration from?
Josh: Mostly Kero Kero Bonito, Death Grips, and Viper.
LOMM: Which is more exciting? Being on the road or studio?
Josh: I hate recording. Being on the road is the mood.
Kenny: I like both. Recording is cash money now since I bought recording equipment and can do it on my own time now.
LOMM: What first got you into music?
Josh: I thought my cousin Greg looked cool playing guitar, so I asked for one for Christmas.
LOMM: What do you like the best about being a musician? And what is it that you do not like much?
Kenny: I love the creative process of it. It’s fun to watch a song go from its initial form to what it ends up being. I don’t like how little it pays.
Josh: I like playing shows and looking cool. I don’t like recording or any of the hard stuff.
LOMM: If you weren’t musicians, what would you be doing?
Josh: Watching One Piece in my mom’s basement.
LOMM: If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?
Josh: More blast beats.
LOMM: What’s more important to you? Catering to the audience or music for its own sake?
Josh: Music I guess. I just make whatever I want.
LOMM: What is the most memorable gig that you have played to date?
Josh: We played in the basement of a bar in Trenton. It was cash money.
LOMM: Who would you like to go on a tour with?
Kenny: Make Them Suffer and KKB.
LOMM: Name some of your all-time favorite albums? Include controversial ones.
Kenny: Infinity on High – Fall Out Boy, Worlds Apart – Make Them Suffer
Josh: “Bonito Generation” is the best album ever. I also love “Mother” by Luna Sea and also “darker than darkness style 93” by Buck Tick is very good.
LOMM: What does your collection look like? Mostly Vinyl, Cassettes, CDs, Digital? A bit of everything? A total mess?
Kenny: Only vinyls and a digital for convenience
Josh: I use Spotify lmao.
LOMM: What Country/Region are you from and what is the Metal/Rock scene like there?
Kenny: We’re from central NJ and the scene is pretty lame here to be honest. The only good shows are in NY, Philly, or Asbury.
LOMM: What is your weirdest memory in your music career?
Kenny: Probably when some dude picked up a table and ran into the crowd with it in the middle of a band’s set.
LOMM: If you had one message to your fans, what would it be?
LOMM: Thank you for taking the time.
