Interviews: Infirm Of Purpose


In this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the  Metalcore band Infirm Of Purpose 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?

The full quote is ‘Infirm Of Purpose, give me the daggers, the sleeping and the dead are but as pictures’ It’s from the Shakespearean play Macbeth.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We all love metalcore and the genres we mix with it, it’s something different from your standard metalcore band. We really enjoy trying to make something different to the standard, single genre sound, we love a genre mix.

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

Matt and Nathan have been friends since secondary school, they then met Josh and Oliver through friends they had in common and Nathan and Josh met Harrison through their previous band Buried And Forgotten. We’ve all known each-other for quite a while.

4. Each band member favorite band?

Josh: Issues

Nathan: Starset

Matt: Behind Blue Eyes

Oli: Enter Shikari

Harrison: Deftones

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

It’s either we hear some amazing and inspiring music in a genre that isn’t metalcore and that influences how we write a metalcore tune or Josh holds the rest of the band hostage until we write a banger.

6. Where was your last gig?

July 20th in Leicester raising money for Rage Against Cancer, it was a mental gig, loads of really cool bands on that bill.

7. Where would you like to play?

A festival like Rock AM Ring or download would be cool because of our metalcore influences but honestly something like Reading/Leads or even Glastonbury would be nice because of our diversity, we’re obviously not a straight metal band.

8. Who would you like to support?

Bands like Enter Shikari, Sylar, Starset or even solo artists like Scarlxrd or Sullivan King. It would be interesting to support an artist on a tour instead of bands like we’re used to.

9. Who not?

Honestly, anyone that has a bad reputation, we’d take up a tour with Ariana Grande if we were offered.

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

Some of us get stage fright slightly before every show, more like pre-show anxiety to be fair. A good way for us to beat it is a couple of JD and cokes or if you’re like Josh, a can of monster. Not overthinking anything is another thing, the main reason for being a musician is because you find it fun.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

The artists that have influenced our sound the most are Enter Shikari, Issues, I See Stars, Scarlxrd and Beyond All Recognition. We find that we’re one of the only band’s at our size that is specifically influenced by an artist as well as bands.

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

We’ve never really been asked by a fan for anything, but we had one fan pick up a can of Monster Josh had finished and carry it round the venue for a while, that was interesting.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Honestly, we appreciate everyone who supports us, we don’t expect anything from anyone so the fact that people actually support us is crazy.

14. What do you think of our site?

It's sick, we love anything that supports smaller bands like us. Love it!

15. Something to add?

Support your local bands and artists, your favourite artist was once local.
