In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the Alternative Rock band OXBLOODS from UK. Check out the interview and this band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that? 

Alex: "We know it came from the colour of Chris' Doc Marten's, but I can't remember whether we originally said it as Oxbloods or Oxblood."

2.Why did you want to play this genre? 

Matt L: "For me personally, it's more natural progression. I've always been in alternative rock genred bands, so typically it's easy to get into writing for that style. With Oxbloods, it's more varied. Which makes it more interesting and Challenging to write for, there's more thought needed. In a live scenario, what's there not to enjoy? It's pure energy."

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

Matty A: "Me, Matt and Chris we're in a band together back when we was 17, so we had known each others bands before this one. Me and Matt also knew Alex from university, which is where we decided to start this project."

4. Each band member favourite band? 

Chris: "Metallica"
Alex: "Muse"
Charlie: "Don Broco"
Matt L: "Paramore"
Matty A: "Jeff Buckley"

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

7. Where would you like to act?

9. Whom not? 

Matty: "No one in particular!"
