Southern Inc Q&A

Your name: 
Chad Thompson- Guitar (Twitter @OchosTSI).

Where are you from? 
Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.

Name of band: 
Southern Inc.

Who else is in your band? 
Kurt Russelle (Guitar/Vocals), Kyle Harding (Bass) and Blair Ellis (Drums).

How would you describe yourselves? 
Four passionate individuals with varying musical interests who seek solace in heavy grooving metal. We work hard/play hard and try to love those around us.

Who are your main influences musically? 
I personally hate this question you always leave things/people out. The band have many greats as mutual influences. Pantera came to our town in the early 90's with Skid Row and I know that sound was a game changer for me. Anything with a metal undertone influences our songs; that's nice thing about music, a sea of endless influences.

What do you hope to achieve in music? 

Right now we are focusing on solid recordings and shows that we would want to listen to.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 

By far teaming with Bonegrinder Records ( to record our first EP Crushing All and the hopefully the good and exciting things that come from doing the work.

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 

The ice cold jam shack! Lol. We are big time with heat now.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why? 

Probably At Ya. It's just a song of a lot of "firsts" in relation to the recording process and our set list. It also contains the lyric "No pride No glory my friend" which speaks volumes about us I think. 

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music? 
@southernincband on Twitter
Website TBA at those links as well as Itunes links etc..

Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask? 

Not much more to add yet. We will aim to please with music as it has done with us.
