Interviews: COUNTERPOINT

Share:


In this new occasion we have had the opportunity to interview the  Alternative Rock band COUNTERPOINT, 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?

We have had polls, votes, arguments, names in a hat, all for a band name. I said Counterpoint one day and it was like, right, done! haha

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

Honestly, it’s just the only way we know how to write, moody sounds with some nice bits of kicking off!

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

For the most part yeah, Ted, Michael and I (Dom) all went to the same college before going our separate ways. We met Ed through a mutual friend Cameron (Lotus Eater) who stepped in on drums for us during our early days.

4. Each band member favourite band?

Dom: I always dread this question! Hahaha, I’m a massive Lostprophets fan which for obvious reasons have not been hugely popular lately. But mate, early 2000’s they absolutely dominated the UK alt metal scene.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Often times it’s just a good way to clear out some of the noise in your head, I know personally I’ll just sit down and write words until I stumble across something I didn’t even know was on my mind.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was Halloween with a Goth horror band called The Dead XIII in Factory251, they’re from Manchester and they’re absolutely brilliant. We were just coming down from playing with Crazy Town so it was a great way to end the year.

7. Where would you like to Play?

See I’m (Dom) a small venue guy, I’ve seen LetLive in Sound Control which I think is what 300 cap? As a music lover I can’t really compare arena venues to smaller ones cos the atmosphere in a smaller venue is amazing. Give me Sound Control or Rebellion over any Arena.

8. Who would you like to play with?

Papa Roach. They’ve always been huge with us and it’d be a proper fanboy moment haha.

9. Who not?

No one, we will play with anyone. Napalm Death to Little Mix.

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Just fake it, If you’re not confident singing or playing guitar then for the next 30 mins just pretend you are. It sounds like utter bullshit but this is the only reason I can get on stage!

Fake it til you make it man

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Thrice, While She Sleeps, Fightstar, Spineshank, Saosin, Madina Lake, Loads really, just go on spotify and type in 2003 hahaha

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

We’ve not been asked for anything yet! We’ve had a couple of stalkers though! Haha waiting for the death threats to roll in, you know you’ve made it when people want you dead.

13. What do you think of your fans?

They have solid taste in music! We usually hang about after shows and it’s really humbling to have people approach you who’ve seen you before or only just finding us and they have nice things to say, awesome.

14. What do you think of our site?

We’ve spoken to you guys a couple of times! Doing solid work man!
