Soapbox Army Q&A

Your name:
Dan Tucker.

Where are you from?
New York City, USA. 

Name of band:
Soapbox Army.

Who else is in your band?
Matt Basile – Bass
Simon Fishburn – Drums, Samples, Background Vocals

How would you describe yourselves?
Rock with some atmospheric and electronic moments. Constantly evolving.

Who are your main influences musically?
Jeff Buckley, dredg, Radiohead, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin. Although we’ve been compared to bands like Foo Fighters, The Gaslight Anthem, Silverchair, The Replacements.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
Most importantly, to create work that we’re consistently proud of and keep striving for more. To make a living playing music and perhaps become a household name someday.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
I think we’re still waiting for that one true “highlight.” So far, it’s been the fact that we’ve recorded two well-received albums and been able to play at some really prestigious venues around NYC.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Personally, having to cut a show short because I lost my voice. Not my proudest moment.

If you could choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
The Tower. I think it’s a good representation of what we do best – unconventional melodies that are still accessible and catchy.

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say about your band that I forgot to ask?
Right now, we’re working on a video for a song from our latest album, ‘Reactor,’ as well as songs for a new EP. Hope to have some new tunes out in the world by late 2013.
We recently became a trio. Looking to give Rush, The Police, and The Fat Boys a run for their money.
