In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the Metalcore band Wage War, from USA. Check out this band and give them a like on their FACEBOOK PAGE.
1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?
Long story, short. We wanted a band name that had 2 W's in it because we had just dropped some money on scrims for a previous name and we wanted to salvage them. I actually think someone's mom came up with it and it was the first name we didn't hate. Haha
2.Why did you want to play this genre?
I think to this day the reason I heavy music is for the energy and passion. Especially in a live scenario. There's nothing else quite like it.
3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?
Seth and I started the band with Briton in mind, and Stephen and Chris came a few years later via other local bands.
4. Each band member favourite band?
Cody: As I Lay Dying
Seth: Bring Me the Horizon
Chris: New Found Glory
5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?
All of our songs are personal experiences, Especially on our new record 'Deadweight.' You're essentially reading an in depth diary.
6. Where was your last gig?
Santa Cruz, California!
7. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?
I really don't think we have. The first day of any tour is always a little anxious just because it's new and you're getting in the swing of things. I'd say just rock out and have a good time. People can notice nervousness. However if they see you're having a great time, they're way more inclined to get involved.
8. What bands have inspired you the most?
As I Lay Dying is the reason I got into this music and the reason I learned how to riff. I sat in front of my CD player and learned their records front to back on guitar and from that, I learned how to write Wage War songs. Underoath and Slipknot
are also big ones for us.
9. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?
I honestly can't think of anything too crazy! I'm sure there are some weird ones, but nothing off the top of my head.
10. What do you think of your fans?
Love them to death. We couldn't do this without them, and we're overwhelmed on a daily basis on the amount of love and support we receive.
