Ask me anything
I have gotten a few asks in the past regarding touring advice so, this is something I have been working on for a bit today. I’m not sure who is going to care or whatever, but I think it might be found useful or at least interesting. I’d like to thank wallyedge , justinmilwaukee , and John Caution for their additions to the whole thing.
Most of this I am writing from first hand experience, as will be noted with: ** , for both a source and comedic relief. Although we don’t tour constantly and do spend a lot of time at home, that’s most likely exactly where you are if you’re just starting out. I am writing this for bands that may be looking to book their first tour or maybe just a weekend, if you’re full-time you’ve probably got this and much more already figured out.
If you have something to add, PLEASE comment or reblog with your addition and I will add it to the actual post when I can if it fits. I would love to take other input and add it in.
This is our summer.
This is huge
Mad to see iron mind getting on a massive tour, best australian band out atm
-Whats your thoughts on the local scene?
Sydney’s local hc scene is quite small, but we have so many great bands, and such a dedicated bunch of people who are always going to shows and supporting each other’s bands. It’s a great scene, which I’m quite new to.
INTERVIEW - MAX FROM IMPRISONED
Well, I played in bands with Morgan (Distant Wreck) and Bailey (Lovers Grave) in the past. When those bands fizzled out I had an “itch” to do something that I could be 100% proud of. We met Josh (the original drummer who recently moved back to NZ) through other bands etc. The rest is history.
FROM TEARS TO GLORY- THORNS
Thorns have been Australia’s top heavy hardcore bands for the last few years, with there demo and ep being nothing less than pit classics, but this album has separated them from any other “mosh” band out.
Thorns have matured and evolved into a sound of there own, as much crowbar as bury your dead. The sludge element makes it incredibly interesting, with lots of tension and release, such as the end of “angel eyes” which breaks down into a low and slow melodic riff with close to sung vocals on it. The album has a raw aggressive vibe throughout, weather its sludge riff, or driving groove, but the last track reveals the most interesting parts of the album. When “burn” starts its a delayed soaked clean riff with clean vocals, serious 90’s vibe, then at about 2:30 in it give you a serious punch in the face, a fitting end to such a heavy album
In my opinion From Tears To Glory is a great album for anyone loves there heavy riffs low and slow, dont sleep on it, and make sure you catch them on there release tour with downside, imprisoned and born free in april
Get From tears to glory on itunes or off the washed up records big cartel
