Have any of you played in other bands? Yes we have all been in other bands, our vocalist and bassist currently play in a tech death band called Ending Tyranny, as well as our guitarist and drummer were formerly in a metalcore band called Great White Shark.
How is it that you started playing music? The band was originally just a bunch of songs written by our guitarist, Ian, and he decided he would like to play these for his friends, so he got together with his old band mate and expanded his ideas. 
What are your names? / Who plays what? / How old are you?

Ian Wilson- Guitar

Callum Clark- Vocals

Alec McRae- Bass

Zack Crossley- Drums
Did you make music even when you were young? We have all been making music for a long time in a bunch of different bands. Weve all grown up in and around the same music scene.
Where are you from? The band is based out of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
What year did the band form? We formed originally in 2015, but we didnt really become a band until late 2016.
What's your style of genre? We play fast punk/hardcore music.
What inspires you? We are pissed off about alot that goes on in the world, we speak up about what we feel needs to be said.
How have you developed since you started with the music? We have gotten faster and grown into a more oldschool hardcore sound as the music is progressing
Are you looking for a booking agency, and what are your thoughts around that? We arent looking for a booking agency. We are a very DIY band and we handle everything ourselves, from booking shows, to releasing our music and merch, we want it done right and we dont want any outside say as to where our band goes.
What made you decide to make this music? We are pissed off about alot of things that are happening around us, and the only way we can say we are pissed off without being seen as assholes is by making hardcore music.
What are your songs about? Doing right to people. If you are a dick we will call you out. Our songs are politically charged and we go after whatever trouble we see in the world.
Who does the composing and writes the lyrics? Our guitarist and vocalist work together on writing everything.
Do you start with the music or the lyrics? Music always comes first, we just write cool riffs and build from that.
Have you done any covers live? Yep, we cover old school hardcore songs, like Madball and stuff. The stuff that inspires us.

What do you think about people downloading music instead of buying records now a days? We absolutely support downloading music, we want to be heard, we dont care about the money. You can grab our album for free off of bandcamp!
How do you think the music industry have changed because of this? Bands are losing money, but they are getting a larger fanbase i think. We dont have to go and spend 10$ on a CD of a band we know, we can hop online and download whatever we want and if it sucks who cares, delete it, but if its good you found something you wouldnt have heard otherwise.
