Interviews: One More Weekend


In this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Rock band One More Weekend from Australia. 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?

Connor: Actually we had HUGE lists of very average names and one day at home I was going through some CD’s to get some inspiration. “The Academy Is...” are a big influence of mine and they have a song called “One More Weekend”, despite being far from one of my favorite song’s of theirs I wrote it down. On the way to practice that night I mentioned it and bones (Tim) was kind of like “yeah that’s good” and I specifically remember Paul saying “Yeah that’s actually good”. So at that point we’d been practicing for around 3-4 months and finally we got it, some things just take time.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Connor: Every other genre sucked so we thought we’d make our own little pigeon hole.

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

Tim: No thank Christ!

Leith: Well I and Connor are brothers so you know, we kind of did.

4. Each band member favorite band?

Paul: The Maine

Connor: Rose Avenue mixed with Words of Elizabeth featuring The Great Emu War on stage with Orion Haze.

Leith: Can I put One More Weekend here?

Tim: Coheed In Cambria, always Coheed, forever Cambria, the second love of my life.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Connor: Everything, everything wrong, right, happy, sad, moments, how we talk to each, how we don’t. From getting screwed over by advertising to going out with your friends. On the rare occasion it’s something stupid he does though points at Wheelie Healey. If you’re pumping “We Used To...” right now though it’s centered around all aspects of communication.

6. Where was your last gig?

Connor: The suburb of Sunbury at a venue called Sound System Studio’s Bar. Why you ask? A rockin joint where the stage has access to the bar and your just never gonna complain about that.

7. Where would you like to act?

Connor: Centrefold lounge for sure, the place is always packed and they have a huge stage.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Connor: Preferably we want to start being associated with bands in our alt/rock genre. From the medium-sized acts like The Maine, all the way up to bands the size of The Foo Fighters.

9. Whom not?

Connor: No one really, we’ve played with every genre under the sun and would do so again. I must admit we do reach different audiences when doing so and I’m sure we’ve added some passengers to our bandwagon.

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

Leith: I did, my advice don’t picture everyone naked, it puts you off way more than you think.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Connor: The Maine are probably the biggest contenders at this point in time but I am pumping Allday’s latest at the moment.

Paul: Please don’t ever ask Connor to rap.

Connor: Yeah I’d say Powderfinger, Catfish and the bottlemen, Jet, BMTH, Nothing But Thieves and Ball Park Music are probably the most relatable besides The Maine.

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

Connor: Drugs and that’s stupid cause we’d never give them away.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Connor- They should probably stop asking us for drugs. Nah seriously our fans are fuckin sick! They sing, they dance, they get involved and our live performances thrive off of involvement.

Tim: Like yeah you don’t just get to see us, you get to be a part of it all and thanks to our fans it’s that extra bit we never thought we’d have. Without them we’re really nothing.

14. What do you think of our site?

Connor: It's good! I dig it! A bit on the metal side but hey. I actually had no idea there were so many sub genres, like post shoegaze? That’s the direction we’re going in next. Maybe throw a little zombie death metal in there too hey hahaha.

15. Something add?

Connor: Have you guys asked wheelie how to smoke a salmon yet?
