What inspired the name of the band? What are your influences and are they the same as when you started out?

David: The band started before I joined, but it was more of a Def Leppard, pop-metal type band. I come from a heavier background, so have somewhat influenced the band in that direction. We’ve moved the key down slightly. Our fan base has started growing as well.

How do you approach songwriting?

It is somewhat a subconscious thing. I’ve saved myself a lot of money and time using music as therapy. I keep an eye on my feelings and for instance a song on the record ‘Star’ was me telling myself ‘Everything’s going to be okay David.’ I try and translate what I write into what others might feel as well. I’ve written about politics, religion, life.

How do you decide what to perform live?

We decide about an hour before we go on stage. We peek around the curtain, get a sense of what the audience’s mood is. How they’re acting and feeling. Demographics is another one. For instance if we were playing in Birmingham, the setlist would be heavier as it’s a darker city. We’ve got 2 albums worth of material so we’re not stuck for things to play. We can change things up.

What plans do you have for the future?

We’re definitely looking to expand the tour, want to take the guys to Europe, to the Far East. Play as many places as we can. In regards to album number three, we did write about 15-20 songs when writing the current record, so some of those songs may end up on album number three. But we’ll see.
