Where are you from?
Deal, in Kent, England.
Name of band:
Who else is in your band?
James Wells, Rich Goodyear and Ross Gilbert.
How would you describe yourselves?
Alternative rock with a post hardcore edge.
Who are your main influences musically?
Nirvana, Biffy Clyro, Lower Than Atlantis, Don Broco, Smashing Pumpkins, Reuben
What do you hope to achieve in music?
To be able to play big festivals, do big tours, give up the day job and live comfortably as musicians. And for our songs to mean something to people.
What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Err, we've had a few 'moments'. Touring with I Divide towards the end of last year definitely. Headlining a sold out Barfly in Camden was also pretty cool. Amazing show with amazing memories, the crowd were awesome!
And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Err probably the early days playing to hardly anyone at The Garage in Highbury whilst having our tour van broken into at the same time :(
If you could choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
I think it has to be our new single 'Lights At Ten'. Not only cause its the only recording of our new line up but also that it most represents where we are at now musically. I think it encompasses all of our sound pretty much in one song.
