In this new occasion we have had the opportunity to interview the Emo/Pop Punk band EVERTIM, from UK. 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?
When we first threw around the idea of starting a band, we thought how hilarious it would be to name ourselves after an old meme (‘Lyk if u cry evertim’). 2 years later, I think the joke’s worn off completely now.
2.Why did you want to play this genre?
Alex: When I first came to Brighton, all I knew of emo and pop-punk were American Football and The Wonder Years. I think seeing a lot of bands in these genres come to Brighton over the past 5 years gave us a lot of inspiration in terms of songwriting, and whilst our name is a bit tongue-in-cheek in terms of the genre, the music tends to be a bit more serious.
3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?
We met each other through a bunch of chance encounters at gigs, on joinmyband and Tinder. When it came to our first practice, we were still mere aquaintances but 2 years on we’ve become the best of friends.
4. Each band member favourite band?
Ben: The Story So Far
5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?
Alex: Most of our lyrics are very biographical, which means I kinda lay out all my cards on the table in terms of my personal life. With the upcoming EP, all 4 songs were written during a very difficult time of my life after the end of a relationship and having to move back home. Whilst the circumstances did seem negative from the surface, the EP has probably the most uplifting lyrics I’ve ever written, so there’s a lot of silver-lining talk in this one.
6. Where was your last gig?
Our final shows of the year are on: -Thursday 30th November at Sticky Mike’s, Brighton (supporting Daisyhead and Sibling alongside I Feel Fine)
December 7th at the Moustache Bar, London (supporting Luke Rainsford alongside Night Swimming, Pessimist and Treehouse).
7. Where would you like to act?
Phoebe: We want to tour anywhere we haven’t been yet! Slam Dunk and 2000 Trees festivals are at the top of our bucket list. We’d love to play Reading & Leeds festivals one day too. We’d also love to branch out abroad, including mainland Europe, North America and Australia.
8. Whom would you like to tour with?
The Early November would probably be a great fit for our sound, however State Champs sound like they’d be a right laugh to hang out with between shows.
9. Whom not?
I think we’d struggle to gel with Piers Morgan.
10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?
A few of us at the beginning felt a bit nervous during our first shows, but the best way to deal with stage fright is simply keep playing shows, you soon adapt to the surroundings. Also, communication with bandmates is paramount, with an understanding group of mates on stage with you, the fear just kind of fades away.
11. What bands have inspired you the most?
In terms of ‘Your Heaven Held Me Well’ the songs were inspired by bands like The Early November, Pentimento, Counterparts and Have Mercy. When it came to first picking up our instruments and playing we have bands like Paramore, My Chemical Romance and Frank Turner to thank.
12. What do you think of your fans?
We are super appreciative of anyone who comes to watch us, whether they come as a friend or complete stranger, to have a little mosh or just want to chill and enjoy what they hear. It’s all great to see
13. What do you think of our site?
Breathing the Core is a fantastic webzine that gives exposure to hard-working bands in and around the hxc scene. Supporting each other is the way forward and the scene itself represents equality and mutual respect amongst everyone which is something we firmly stand for.
