Traitors Q&A

Your name: 
Ben Davies (Vocals).

Where are you from? 
Hitchin/Stevenage, Hertfordshire, UK.

Name of band:

Who else is in your band? 
Rosie Allen (Bass/Vox), Jason Haggerty (Guitar), Danny Clayton (Drums) and Chris Hollis (Guitar/Vox).

How would you describe yourselves?
A five-piece pop-punk band with harmonies galore.

Who are your main influences musically?
The pop punk we grew up on - NOFX, The Movielife, The Get Up Kids, New Found Glory, Millencolin etc and a bit of Say Anything, Against Me and The Gaslight Anthem.

What do you hope to achieve in music? 
Just to get some songs out that people like really! We've all been in various bands for WELL over a decade so any dreams of rock stardom are long gone, but if we can write a song that means something to someone that would be mindblowing. We'd also like to revitalise the punk scene in our area, which used to be amazing, by putting some bands on and getting the buzz going again.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 
Well we are very new! As in our first gig is next week! But just getting to know the guys better and writing some proper back to basics rock songs has been amazing.

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 
Um none yet! Hopefully we can keep it that way!

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why? 
I guess We Will Build Towers, our first single, is a fair representation. Poppy, punky and harmonies galore!

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/music that I forgot to ask?
Not really, you've been very thorough! People can pre-order our EP 'Boys Of The Double Cross' on the bandcamp page, as well as listening to a couple of songs - and we'd appreciate people letting us know if they're digging it!
