Happy Thieves In Paradise Q&A

Name of band:
Happy Thieves in Paradise.

Where are you from?
We are from Binghamton, New York, USA.
Who else is in your band?
Tyler Durden: Vocals, Guitar
Brian Kowalski: Bass
Andrew: Vocals, Drums
Ryan: Keys, Percussion

How would you describe yourselves?
We are a bunch of guys from varying musical backgrounds. We take in these different influences, melt them, mash them together and we don't forget to enjoy the creative process while doing this 

Who are your main influences musically?
We have a ton so I will go with genres here; 70s rock, psychedelic, early metal, indie, film scores and a healthy dose of quality pop.  

What do you hope to achieve in music?
We want to create good sounds that get people's attention and make them tap their feet and bob their heads when listening to our music.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Playing more than two people.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Playing for two people ;-)

If you could choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
It would be El Padre or Mathematics of War because they have the major ingredients that we are looking for in our music such as being explosive-like as well as showing different sides of the band with mellow keyboard passages or acoustic-y sounds. 
Where can we listen to it?
You can listen to El Padre as well as all other songs from our EP on our FaceBook page : 

Where can we find out more about your music?
People could get all the informatoin about the band such as new songs, upcoming second EP updates, tour schedule, how we look like :) , etc. from our official FB page:
They can also follow us on twitter as we sync and update it on regular basis;
We are also on YouTube and ReverbNation ;
If anybody wants to support the band, we have our first EP on iTunes and BandCamp:
At least, stream our music on Spotify if you don't want to pay for it ;)
Spotify: Just search for our band name and you will find us :)

Anything else you’d like to say about your band that I forgot to ask?
It is really tough times for everybody not only in USA but across the globe. So, I understand people have priorities. and they don't want to pay couple of dollars for independent musicians music when it takes hundreds of dollars to record them when they can pay top dollar for things that they possible won't ever use or wear but without your help, local music cannot and will not survive. Remember, all of those big names you see on TV were local artists once. 
So please do your best and support your local artists, this includes all forms of art. Show up on their gigs, buy a CD, a t-shirt, buy their art. 
We can only get better "together", not alone. 
Thanks for the opportunity and check Happy Thieves in Paradise on the web, give us a listen, give us a feedback. Let us know what you think.
