Interviews: THE WOLF HOWLS WHEN I SCREAM YOUR NAME


In this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Alternative Rock band THE WOLF HOWLS WHEN I SCREAM YOUR NAME from the UK. Check out the interview and follow the 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? 

Well, i was singing a song once in my bedroom whilst I had been writing and my dog came in and started howling, it kind of took me back a little, like 'does he think that's what I'm doing' and I was just thinking about all of the reasons I believe good music comes into fruition and that generally either comes from pain or a general confusion about life, it certainly comes with loss of any sort, you can lose a lot of things along the way in life, even parts of yourself, and I was just thinking about all of the similarities that howling kind of has to music as mental as that sounds, like howling is mournful in a way and I think our music is too for sure, I'm just a miserable git really! 

2. Why did you want to play this genre? 

Well with this band it's really strange, I genuinely started it planning on making a record by myself like Julien Baker & The National & Bon Iver, like really ethereal stuff, but I was kind of busy in another band at the time, so it kind of sat there for a while, then I think it evolved naturally into a like an old emo kind of vibe in a sense when me Sam and Harry decided to make it a band, like using some quite dark intervals, and like that's also not too far to the original idea it was just But I think on this record we've kind of found a much more glued together different sound to all of that, like I hear a lot of Radiohead in this record and Thrice, and that's more down my ally, it's definitely rock music, and our next record I'm writing is shaping up in an even darker way which I didn't picture, it seems to be getting further and further away from what it started like, I like to view this band as, like an ever changing thing, I don't know what we are really any more. 

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

Yes. I studied an HND with Sam for a year then he dropped out so we vaguely became friends through that, we still knew who each other were before that but we got to know each other through that, Sam left a year before I did because the course let's say wasn't perfect and we had an insufferable tutor and two truly amazing ones, I think that was either 2015 or 2016 I can't remember exactly my memory is awful. But we stayed in contact a bit after, then for reasons I won't go into I went off the rails and I'd started spending a lot of time with Sam as he'd drive around and talk about records with me and that just became a really close friends as it developed he's one of the few people in life I truly trust and respect completely and I'm a big cynic in that sense, I don't hold many people up in that regard so it's strange we only came to make a band together last year. I'm only really getting to know Harry now we're doing little runs of shows and are doing more with the band, we've been having a laugh recently, but, I've known who Harry is since I was about 17 as he's just been a mutual friend and we've both pondered around our local music community, so yeah we all knew of each other to a level.

4. Each band member favorite band? 

Matty: Failure

Sam: Angels & Airwaves

Harry: Idles

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

Just great bands firstly, a lot of what inspires me isn't exactly what we do, and some of it is, The Brian Jonestown Massacre move me in a strange powerful way but obviously we sound nothing like that, Radiohead always inspire me, a lot of The Smashing Pumpkins stuff but not like the typical Siamese Dream influence everyone seems to have at the moment, like I love tracks like 'To Sheila' and the broader, grander stuff off Melancholy & The Infinite Sadness, I've started listening to a lot of music that's kind of more in depth and I think we take on approaches similar to those bands, like looking for a bigger picture than just rock music, not all of the time, but a lot of the time I think with us that's the case, a real cinematic almost story like projection. 

Life inspires me, the question mark to it, the pain, the joy, and the uncertainty everyone has, some I think more than others, but deep thinking people inspire me. People bum me out who find life dead easy all of the time, they're often emotionally kind more disconnected I think, and are fucking boring, people who think status or looks are important to zap it right out of me, i love being around lunatics, they inspire me, they're usually nicer people too!

6. Where was your last gig? 

We played our e.p release show in our hometown Northwich last night at a really cool punk kind of pub called The Salty Dog and we played the night before at our friends release show Clay Lake in Stoke at a place called The Exchange.

7. Where would you like to act? 

I wouldn't

8. Whom would you like to feature with? 

Thom Yorke would probably be the dream or Anton Newcombe

9. Whom not? 

Aggressive people, I can't work with overly forceful people

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

Not really, my first gig when I was 13 I was nervous as hell, but after that rush as a kid I kind of got over it, I can't sit here and say now it isn't at all an ego thing, but the older I've got I've just tried to get further and further away from that, and it just feels like nothing to me now, it's hard to fully explain, I generally don't get too bummed out by other peoples often jealous opinions(which doesn't really happen)I know I'm good at what I do internally and that's enough for me to get up there with confidence and express myself. 

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

All the bands I have spoken about really, Alice In Chains inspire me largely too, but like Idles inspire me too, I just love great music. Failure, Radiohead & The Brian Jonestown Massacre though I have a connection with personally more than any other bands really, for different reasons, I just think they all hit the nail on the head.

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

Really just the typical can I have a picture or autograph has been strange for me because we're a small band. 

13. What do you think of your fans? 

Geezers.

14. What do you think of our site?

It's cool, you seem to be getting some traction on social media and present yourselves well

15. Something add?


Do you
