Have any of you played in other bands? Absolutely. We have all been in and out off different bands since we have start. All sorts of genres as well.

Ryan Flett- Vocals

Have you had other previous members? We have had one guitarist about 3 years ago before we really found our sound. It has mostly been Jon and Brendon for the most of it.

What inspires you? New sounds and watching people enjoy our music

How often and where do you reherse? About two weeks at our house.

How have you developed since you started with the music? Both talent and personalities have expanded. We all know our instruments more and each other. 

Do you have other interests of work outside the band? We all have our side jobs. Jon works in sales, Ryan works as a city garbage man and Brendon does high rise window washing. 

Are you looking for a booking agency, and what are your thoughts around that? We are always willing to work with booking agencies. We feel they help bands out a lot with shows and getting their names out there. Lots of time we are too busy will our work in and out of a band so an agency helps a lot. It can be tough to find a good one from time to time though so we always have to be careful.

Are you looking for a label, and what are your thoughts around that? Pretty well the same answer as before. If a label is willing to work hard for us we will work hard for them. 

What made you decide to make this music? I think for all of use it is the energy. Being able to bring an art to life and share it with as many people as possible. 

What are your songs about? They very. You will just have to listen and find out :)

Who does the composing and writes the lyrics? Most of the music is composed by Jon and Brendon. The lyrics are mostly Ryans contribution.

Do you start with the music or the lyrics? Music

Do you compose in a certain inviroment? Generally no. But a certain environment triggers the creativity 

Have you done any covers live? No, we have considered it but we have a lot of original material we would rather share

What language do you sing in? English

What are the least and most people to attend one of your gigs? We have had 1-100. Metal shows are always interesting with outcome.

What ages are most of your concert attendants? from 20-35

Do you always play the same songs live, or do you vary? They vary….a lot. We will never play the same set list twice.

What was your first gig like? Small. Completely different from what we are like now. 

What was your latest gig? We played at a venue called La Petit Chicago. It was a lot of fun.

Where have you played live this year? Various locations. Ottawa, Toronto, Kitchener, and more to com.

Where do you plan to gig the comming year? We have lots of shows lined up in Ottawa, the GTA, Montreal and quebec city. 

When did you start to sell merchandise, and what do you have for sale? This year we have opened our mercy table. We have muscle shirts, CD’s, Stickers, and hot sauce! 

Where can people buy your merchandise? Our shows!

What do you think about people downloading music instead of buying records now a days? What ever helps our music get heard. As much as we would love to make money the main reason we do this is to share our music. 

How do you think the music industry have changed because of this? I think a lot of great talent gets hidden in all of this. You have to search more and more through the masses to find what really speaks to you. 

What do you think of my work? I love it. You are doing a great service for a lot of the underground bands. We need more support like this to help get our names out. 

Is it easier to find inspiration from older bands, or bands that are more active today? It is hard to tell when inspiration will strike. whether it is listening to classics or new songs. I find most of my inspiration often comes during live performances.

What have been your biggest obstacles? Time. It has taken us a long time to really find our sound. It was frustrating at first but we stuck to it and now have a truly unique sound. 

What advice would you give other bands or artists? Stick to it and stay true. Never give up your creativity. 

How do you get psyched for a gig? Pizza and beer Hahaha. 

Do you have any new material? Always. We are hoping to get into the studio soon to start tracking.
