Interviews: BATHER


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Metal band BATHER from the USA. 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? 

The band name came from a series of four paintings from the 1800’s by William Etty. We were searching for a name that would fit us and I had stumbled on it while looking up controversial art.

2. Why did you want to play this genre? 

We have all been fans of extreme music our whole lives so it just came natural to us.

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

Yes. Bather is a continuation of a previous band we were in together.

4. Each band member favorite band? 

Josh- Deftones

Nicky- The Cranberries

Jon- Metallica

John- Radiohead

Mike- AFI 

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

When it comes to lyrics I’m usually inspired by what’s going on in my life currently. I write a lot about love, romance, and mental illness.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last show was in Columbus Ohio with these two killer bands First Bite who’s from Columbus Ohio, and Malevich from Atlanta GA.

7. Where would you like to act? 

Somewhere in another country would be rad.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

As play with? Deftones for sure. If you mean feature as in have someone on a song of ours, Chino from Deftones. I like the Deftones a lot.

9. Whom not?

Ethan Martin 

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

I think we all have at some point. Especially early on. I still get nervous before every show but I shake it off right before it’s time to play. A few tips would be to breathe and just remember you’re there to have fun.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Deftones, Pantera, Cattle Decapitation, Danzig, Cryptopsy, AC/DC, W.A.S.P. , 36 Crazyfists, Black Sabbath, and The Red Chord. I know it sounds like I just threw a bunch of band names in there but every one of these I mentioned has inspired me greatly. Whether it be my writing style, my vocal style, or my stage presence.

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

We haven’t reached the weird request stage of our career yet haha. I hope we get there soon though. That’s when you know you’ve really made it!

13. What do you think of your fans?

The people that dig us and get what we are doing are awesome. We are a required taste in the extreme music scene so everyone that is down for what we are about and who aren’t afraid of something different we respect and appreciate you greatly. Thank you for caring.

14. What do you think of our site? 

It’s sick! We highly recommend it. Thank you for the interview.

15. Something add?
