Interviews: Last On The List

In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the  Metal/Rock band Last On The List from USA. 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?

Cast: It was kind of unexpected more than anything else. I was talking with one of my friends when we were in high school about how he was always at the end of the attendance list because his last name started with a V. Then I thought that it would be a good name for a band, which is why we’re called what we are.

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

Originally, we began as a cover band for songs/artists of the 2000’s, it wasn’t until we were introduced to bands like The Devil Wears Prada, Miss may I, and Parkway Drive that made us fall in love with this style of music. Our intent is to use this genre as our most significant influence and to have bits and pieces of other subgenres of metal all placed in one.

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

Not at all, in fact aside from Ethan and I, we’ve only all been together for about 8 months. We’ve gotten as recent as our latest member joining only a few months ago.

4. Each band member favourite band?

Cast: I don’t have a favorite new band but Kiss, Guns n’ Roses, and Ozzy Osbourne for the music and showmanship.

Ethan: I would go with Chelsea Grin, Phinehas, and Born of Osiris because I love the energy and vibe I get from their music.

Tom: Avenged Sevenfold, Chelsea Grin, and Arch Enemy.

Alfredo: I have a few: Slayer, Lamb of God, Death, Phineas, Slipknot, System of a Down, Avenged Sevenfold, Chelsea Grin, and Bob Dylan.

Quincy: My “favorite” band changes all the time, I’m all over the place. A few main influences of mine however are Slipknot, Beartooth, A Day to Remember, Muse, John Mayer, and probably most importantly The 1975. That’s also just to name a few, the list is never ending for me.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Cast: As far as lyrics go, I probably pull from the darker areas of where my mind goes, seeing how the world reacts to recent events of the last few years, the more of each side [liberal and conservative] I see go about different situations and problem solving, etc. Not all of our songs are political, some hit on topics like self-worth, war, religion, and society as a whole. As far as musically, everyone brings stuff to the table, and that’s how we, personally, like to write our songs. We don’t have anything like an “order of operations”, it’s more-so someone pitches an idea they have and we see where we can go with it or where it takes us. It’s much more organic and we like doing what we do this way best.

6. Where was your last gig?

The last show we’ve played was at Goldsounds Bar out in Brooklyn, the show was fantastic and we loved the environment and people who’ve come out to see everyone play.

7. Where would you like to act?

There’s a ton of places we’d be delighted to come play at, a few places in particular though are venues such as Gramercy Theater, Webster Hall, Dingbatz out in New Jersey, Irving Plaza, and many, many more.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

We haven’t been looking to have anyone feature with us necessarily, at least as of right now.

We’re working on finding our sound and what we like to do or what we can bring to the table ourselves, and given that in itself we’re trying to see where our abilities bring us before it makes sense to bring in others. We aren’t opposed to the idea by any means, it’s just not something we’re paying too much attention to just yet. What matters more is when the time is right and if we’re able to contact the right person for the job.

9. Whom not?

I don’t think anybody would be off the list as far as who we’d work with. We’re very open and welcoming, we don’t see there being anybody who we wouldn’t want to work with at all.

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

I don’t think any of us have had any form of stage fright, given we’ve all done some forms of performances growing up. The only real tip there is to give is to go out confident in yourself and your performance, and if you aren’t confident for any reason then at the very least don’t show it. Not many people will notice when something goes wrong unless they see it in your face or actions. Put on the best show you can and learn how to roll with the punches.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

There’s no one band that collectively inspired us all, we all have our own influences that got us where we are today.

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

Nothing out there yet, so far everything’s been pretty tame.

13. What do you think of your fans?

We like to consider them more than just fans. Anybody who supports us whether it be day one of us being a band or if today was their day one of discovering us, we greatly appreciate anyone and everyone who’s willing to support us.

14. What do you think of our site?

Everything you do is wonderful, it’s great that people who are just starting out can go to someone such as yourselves to try and get their name out there to the best they can. Even from us personally, we greatly appreciate you giving us this opportunity to talk and show who we are on and off the stage.

15. Something add?

We’ve just recently released our second single, Bloody Reflection. As well as be on the lookout for an EP in early 2019.

Our Instagram where we post all our updates as far as new music, show, and more is @lastonthelistband. We also have our music up on platforms such as Youtube, Apple Music, Spotify, etc.
