60 Seconds With... The Devil Rides Out
Define your genre in five words or less:
What do you love about making music?
Creating something for no other reason than personal expression and pure joy of it.
What do you hate about the music industry?
The dominance of commerce over art.
What do you think a band has to do these days to succeed?
It depends on your definition of success. Based on our definition – forget what anyone else is doing and play from the heart.
Describe the best gig you have ever played.
Supporting Clutch was special. A big inspiration to us so to get to share the stage with them was one of those great moments as both a fan and a musician.
Describe the worst gig you have ever played.
Maroochydore. Shut down after one song for being too loud and heavy. Something good to have in the CV though I guess.
What's the strangest place you've ever played a gig, or made a recording?
A woman asked her boyfriend what he would want for his birthday if he could have anything. He said us playing at his house. So she hired us to play at his backyard birthday party. Strange in the best possible way.
If someone made a movie about your life, who would play you?
I’m not sure but they’d be incredibly handsome.
If your music was a chocolate bar, which one would it be, and why?
Scorched Peanut Bar. Hard and full of nuts.
When’s the gig and with who?
Friday June 15 at The Espy supporting the Mammoth Mammoth album launch. Saturday June 16 at The Old Bar with The Wardens and My Left Boot… followed by a late Pony appearance. Ouch.
