60 Seconds With... We Built Atlantis
Define your genre in five words or less:
Electro post hardcore.
How long have you been gigging and writing?
We have been together for a bit over 12 months now.
How do you balance making and playing music with your other commitments?
It is quite hard juggling work, sports, family and other commitments with being musicians, but at the end of the day we love making and playing our music and we will make time to do so no matter what.
Describe the best gig you have ever played?
It would have to be GTM 2012. We played to an insane crowd of 600+ people and spent the whole day playing ping pong with our childhood heroes Parkway Drive, and met so many amazing people.
What do you think a band has to do these days to succeed?
Be persistent and never give up, as well as offer something to the music scene that no one else has or is trying to do.
If you could go on tour with any musician or band, who would it be?
I would have to say Parkway Drive as they are such killer dudes.
When are you doing your thing next?
After our tour promoting our new single Tidal Waves, we are hitting the studio to record our second upcoming release.
Do you have any record releases to date? What are they? Where can I get them?
We currently have our first release Empty Cities EP available on iTunes.
WE BUILT ATLANTIS play at Musicland this Saturday June 9.
