Interviews: Dig Two Graves


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Progressive Metalcore band Dig Two Graves 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? 

Kenny: We were trying to come up with one for a while when we were starting the project. I forget the context but Josh said “Dig Two Graves” in a sentence one day and it sounded perfect.

2. Why did you want to play this genre? 

Jaybee: Well I wrote some pretty piano stuff one time, and then played chonky guitar on top and now we play that pretty much.

Kenny: I’ll play anything that I can add blast beats to. 3. Did you know each other before the band was formed? 

Kenny: Known Josh since we had class together in the 3rd grade. Met Mike and Jesse through the band.

Jaybee: Yeah me and Kenny have known each other for a minute. I met Mike in a philosophy class in college. 4. Each band member favourite band? 

Jaybee: Hard to narrow it down, but probably Kero Kero Bonito.

Kenny: Fall Out Boy, not even close

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

Jaybee: I write all the songs instrumentally, then hand them off to Mike to write lyrics and everything. I never tell Mike what I had in mind though. A lot of what I write is based on happy experiences in life or cool books I read.

6. Where was your last gig? 

Kenny: Crossroads in Garwood, New Jersey

Jaybee: Yeah it was really cool. It’s a nice place. Kinda tiny stage though I almost smacked Mike like 10 times with my guitar.

7. Where would you like to perform? 

Jaybee: I wanna play at big festivals, and at pretty ballrooms. But at the moment we’re trying to get out of NJ more, stretch into NYC and Philly a little more.

8. Whom would you like to perform with? 

Kenny: Make Them Suffer, Fall Out Boy, 100 gecs.

Jaybee: The Gazette, Make Them Suffer, Code Orange.

9. Whom not?

Kenny: Don’t know if there is anyone.

Jaybee: I wouldn’t want to play with Chris Brown because I have long hair and he might hit me.

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

Jaybee: I did a little starting out. It was less about being in front of people more just scared of if it’s too dark to see my fret markers or I forget my parts or something. Part of getting over that is just the experience, you get more used to the process. But one of the things that helped me starting out was thinking about the fact that people just want to have fun. No one is hoping you suck, they’re hoping for a good show, and they’ll be pretty forgiving if you mess up or something, so it’s no big deal.

Kenny: Never been too nervous but occasionally will be worried about messing up particular parts that are more difficult. Focusing on just enjoying the show and having fun will definitely make you less nervous.

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

Kenny: Avenged Sevenfold, Make Them Suffer, Thy Art is Murder, Asking Alexandria

Jaybee: Moi Dix Moi, Kero Kero Bonito, Anti-Feminism. Anything that conveys a lot of big vibes. A lot of visual kei, hardcore punk, future pop.

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

Jaybee: One time I was asked to sign a cheese omelette, and I obliged.

Kenny: Pretty sure that omelette had onions and peppers too.

13. What do you think of your fans? 

Jaybee: They’re all really cool, and rich, and have big weiners. If you’re not a fan, you have none of these, sorry coach.

Kenny: Big Agree

14. What do you think of our site? 

Jaybee: It’s really great! I love that it gives a lot of opportunities for smaller bands to get some reach. Definitely suggest it to anyone looking to find some new stuff to listen to.

15. Something to add?

Jaybee: Thanks so much for reaching out to do an interview! We appreciate the support, and hope to reconnect with you guys sometime in the future!
