Where can people see you? Mainly in Southern California but we are open about traveling to farther locations if there is a request ;) 
Do you have a web-site? Yes! we have a Facebook its www.facebook.com/apathymetal , a Twitter @apathychall , and youtube apathychall
 What is the name of your best song? its hard to say but we would have to say "The Benthic Depths" that songs just brings major energy to the fans with is fast and diverse parts. crowd favorite and it being fun to play is a plus too. 
Who plays what? Trevor plays a 4 string Fender jazz bass , Jimmy has a custom 8 string Agile, Wes has a Custom 8 sting Agile and an 8 string Schecter and Josh plays a double bass tama with axis pedals. 
What kind of music are you into?  we all love death metal, prog and some black metal. We all have different tastes in music though.
Have you been on tour this summer? No.
Do you have a planned tour anytime soon? We want to, we just need to find a full-time singer. 
Who came up with the band name? We use to be called Apathy In Discord and we decided lets cut it short and just call it Apathy. Locally, a lot of people were already calling us Apathy so we said fuck it let's do it!
Who writes the songs? We write the songs collectively, Wes writes a lot of demo material for possible new songs. We also have our own studio so it helps to just jam new stuff and leave it for the next member to find and jam along to. It also helps us make the studio recording sessions go faster.
what song do you play the most? Well it's hard to say, we play our whole EP when we play so we play everything. hahaha
Do you play the same songs each performance? Every performance we'll play the whole Desolate Terra EP in it's entirety, but we also demo new material live. We have another song we play live if we have enough time left in the set we'll play an old song called "Consequences".
Have you released an album or single? We released the song "Immolation" as a teaser before we put out the Desolate  Terra EP out for free on our Bandcamp. 
Are you working on any new songs?We currently have two songs we're working on for a possible split or another EP release. They don't have any working titles yet but we're pretty much 100% done on one and about 80% done with the other song. Be on the lookout for a new release from us in the Fall.

What is the name of your band? No Way To Escape
Name of the band-members? Nathan Gros Corentin Wicht Jonathan Hohl Patrick Mendes (bassist missing)
Where did you grow up? We all grew up in the same city, Bulle in Switzerland.
How old are you? We all are around 22 years old 
Who started the band? Me (Corentin Wicht) and my dear drummer (Nathan Gros) started the band in 2008 in Nathan's room. Than Jonathan Hohl, our best friend joined the best as the second guitar player, and was followed by Patrick Mendes as the vocalist. We had three different bass player and are looking for another one at the moment.
Where have you played 2012/2013? We have played an average of 40 shows around Switzerland (french-german-italian parts) to promote our first selftitled EP. We also did a small european tour with our dear lads in Actions to Onslaught (UK) during july 2012 in Belgium, Germany and Switzerland again.
Where can people se you? Mostly in Switzerland, even if we're planing shows all around Europe from september to december 2013 to promote our first full length CD hoping that it will be out before the end of the year. 
What is the name of your best song? Probably one song from our EP called Un Avenir Proche that represents really well the kind of tune we like in our music. But it's really hard to answer as we're recording a new album in which we tried to give a different direction to our music.
Who plays what? Nathan Gros - Drum Corentin Wicht - Guitar, backing vocal Jonathan Hohl - Guitar, backing vocal Patrick Mendes - Lead vocal
What kind of music are you into? It goes from Veil of Maya to Heart in Hand. Every musician in the band prefer a different kind of music that helps us to compose various riffs. We also love post-rock songs, that's why we mix clean and more dirty parts in our music.
Have you been on tour this summer? Last summer as i already told you, but not this summer. We prefer to concentrate on the album.
Do you have a planed tour anytime soon? Not for the moment, but we're planing some weekenders all around Europe and will probably hit the UK in October.
Who came up with the band name? No one, No Way To Escape was a part of our Old EP's lyrics. At this time, our band was called Origins of fear, that was a pretty bad name for a band i find.
Who writes the songs? Me (Corentin Wicht) and Jo (jonathan Hohl). I prefer melodic hardcore tunes and he prefers heavy technical ones, and we try to mix our influences with post-rock and clean tunes.
What song do you play the most? For sure, Stay Free. This is the only song we made a video clip of. It's probably the one that we dislike now, because we played it too much and it's getting pretty old.
Do you play the same songs each performance? Yes we do, but we will probably change a bit our setlist when the CD will be out.
Have you realesed a album or single? Yes we've released our first EP homemade recorded and mix/mastered by Christoph Noth in Ebullition, Bulle on 27th of january 2012. That was probably one of the most amazing show we ever did. We shared the stage with the two most incredible bands in Switzerland, called Promethee and Breakdown of Sanity.
Are you working on any new songs? Yes we are, and you'll soon be able to hear more about it.We plan to release a first song really soon.
