What´s the name of your band? Tripping The Mechanism

What made you call the band "Tripping The Mechanism"? It sounds metal and leaves room for us to go any direction musically.

How was the band formed? We met each other and realized we all loved music. So why not play music.

Can you tell about us about your band? Were just music junkies that wanted to have a sanctuary from the madness called life.

Where are all the band members from?/Who does what in the band? We all come from the deep south. Legion is the guitarist/vocalist, Paisley is the bassist/vocalist, Cutter is the asshole, I mean drummer/vocalist.      

What was the ambitions of the band when you started? To have fun and travel.

Could you explain your music to someone that haven't heard you? No. What we think and what other people think is always different.

Who writes your songs?/ who writes the music who writes lyrics? We all write the material, it just kinda happens and were glad that it does.

Have you made any albums?/If yes what are they? We currently have one album called "Start The Evolution". In September 2014 we will be doing a live album for a vinyl release and in November 2014 we will be in the studio pumping out more jams.

Do you have any clips on YouTube? Yes we do. We also have videos on our web page www.trippingthemechanism.com  as well as www.reverbnation.com/trippingthemechanism

What year was the band started? 2005. We are all still the original members.

What places will you be playing in in the imidate future? Keep your eye on our web page or our face book page. We are always doing something.

Is it always the same songs live? No. We have 25 songs and we are always writing more. So we always change it up.

How big crowds do you usually play for? 55 or 65 people. Just depends.

What are the plans for the rest of the year? Keep spreading terror thru the music.

What are your goals with your music? To make music that we want to hear and always be thankful that we have fans that like it as well.

When did you decide to go all in for the music? When we formed the band.

What are your sources of inspiration? Walking down the street, reading a book, traveling.

When you are on stage, what do you fear most then? I can't speak for Paisley or Legion but my (Cutter) fear is spilling my beer!

What do you work with outside of the band and the music? Just being a slave for the tax man like every one else. We have day jobs to pay for our music life.

How important are your fans? We make music for our own piece of mind but we have and always will  respect and appreciate any fan that is interested in what we are doing.

Name 2 of your own songs you like at the moment? Eyes To The Sky and Unspeakable. Both of those songs will be available later this year (2014)

Do you have any webpages? We have several: www.trippingthemechanism.com  also  www.reverbnation.com/trippingthemechanism  and of course Face Book. 

Any pearls of wisdom for all other bands out there? First and foremost, love and respect your band mates. Secondly, there is NO MONEY in metal music. Do it because you love it.

Describe your show, visually and musically  If you have ever read anything by Clive Barker, thats us.

How do you view the music industry of today? When you get off the toliet in the morning and turn around and look down, its like that. Steamy and stinky.
