Faded Definition Q&A

Your name:

Where are you from?
Denver, Colorado.

Name of band:
Faded Definition.

Who else is in your band?
Currently, I'm the only member, but my producer and I have some things in the works, and FD should be playing shows by early 2014.

How would you describe yourselves?
FD is a mix of djenty progressive metal and classical orchestral music.

Who are your main influences musically?
My influences are all over the place, I listen to everything from Job For a Cowboy to the Rat Pack. For the most part, metal bands draw influence from other metal bands, which is great. But I feel that this has lead to most of our scene sounding very similar, and it makes it a lot harder to distinguish between bands. Personally, I'd say I get most of my influences from film soundtracks, and I feel like that brings a unique element to my music.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
In my music career, I hope to I hope to achieve a platinum album. I honestly cant remember the last time a metal band made a platinum record, so I'd say it's about time!

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
So far, the highlight of my career has probably been the release of my last EP "Onward to Dawn". When most bands put out a second release, they usually receive a ton of negative feedback from their fans, (Which is what I was prepared for due to the sound of OtD being heavily different than that of its predecessor As The City Burns). But I really haven't gotten anything other than positive feedback, which is great! Now my only hope is that I can live up to all their expectations for the full length!

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Don't have one!

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
That's a hard one. But I would probably say "The Deceiver". It exhibits a lot of FD's heavier and less heavy stylization, and it's probably also my personal favorite as well.

Where can we listen to it?
You can find links to everything I've done at 
YouTube videos, download links for both Onward to Dawn, and As The City Burns, and even pre production teasers for the new full length.

Where can we find out more about your music?
To find out more about FD, you can follow us on really any social network. For the most straightforward information, Facebook is definitely the best place. I'm also on Twitter @Faded_Def. The Twitter is mostly just a bunch of trolling and jokes, but you can still learn more about the band there as well.
Were also on Reverbnation, Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes, eMusic, and a bunch of other online retailers.

Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask?
I'm currently working on a new full length, which will be a concept album concluding the story which began in Onward to Dawn. Keep your eyes open for it early next year!
