Interviews: Dead Ground

Share:

In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the  Alternative Rock band Dead Ground 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? 

Ollie: Jake and I were looking for words that created an image of the genre and style we had in our head for the band. A family member made a joke about my insatiable coffee habit at some point and we ended up messing around with the word "Grind" and came to this.

2.Why did you want to play this genre? 

The ability to jump from one dynamic to the other is brilliant. Heavy riffs, whisper quiet chords, melodies, shouting, it's so flexible.

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

Jake and I studied the same course at college but Ed was introduced to us as a potential bass player from the off.

4. Each band member favourite band? 

Ollie: - If I had to choose - Incubus.
Ed:  - Radiohead, probably.
Jake: - Bombay Bicycle Club will always be up there.


5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

Personalities and stories.

6. Where was your last gig? 

Torquay with The Kaizens and Such Creatures!

7. Where would you like to play? 

I'd love to play a show in Omera in London soon.

8. Who would you like to support? 

Can we go back in time and support Queen?

9. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright?

Ollie: I can worry about something irrelevant at the gig if someone I
know well is watching.

Jake: I used to have my own little singer/songwriter thing before this band. The last gig I ever played, I almost collapsed due to stage fright. That’s when I decided that being a front man wasn’t for me, so I went to the back instead.   

10. Any tip for beginners on how to beat that? 

Keep playing your instrument live, surround yourself with people who encourage and connect with you. Always remind yourself why you're doing what you do.

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

More recently, Black Peaks, Black Foxxes, Theo Katzman and Joey Landreth.

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

Our fans aren’t that weird…Yet.


13. What do you think of your fans? 

They're solid! You never meet the same type of person twice.
