Latest Bandcamp Release

Interviews: Tradmrkd

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Rock band, Tradmrkd, 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? 

We were originally called Trademark. No reason behind it other than we thought it was a cool name. As we started to kick the band off we discovered that there are a few artists with that name so we had to come up with something new. Because we liked the name Trademark we decide to just add an ED at the end but realised it was too long so we took out the vowels and came up with Tradmrkd.

2. Why did you want to play this genre? 

All of us are big fans of punk. As well as classic rock but we felt that punk was the best genre for us to start with as it is one of the purest forms of rock. You can sing about everything and anything and just enjoy yourself. Who cares if you suck.

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

So the band was originally Eddie and Finlay with their mate back in 2014. They went to school together. When they decided they wanted to try the band thing in 2018 they knew Corey through school as well and knew James by Finlay going to college together.

4. Each band member favorite band?

Corey's fav band is The Smiths. James’ is blink 182. Finlay is Kiss and Eddie’ is Green Day

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Eddie is the main songwriter right now and his main and biggest influence is Green Day. They were the band that got him into music and it is how he perceives writing songs.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was at Drummonds in Aberdeen. That was back in February. We were suppose to be playing tunnels a few weeks after that but unfortunately corona took its toll. 

7. Where would you like to perform?

As a band we would love to perform any major festival. Playing at Glastonbury would be the ultimate dream. Playing around Europe and America would be great but Glastonbury would be amazing

8. Whom would you like to perform with? 

I think all of our influences are who we would love to play with. Green Day, Guns N Roses, Foo Fighters. Well of the ones that are still alive

9. Whom not?

There aren’t any bands are artists we could say that we wouldn’t want to play with as we have not met many so we can’t judge anyone.

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

Eddie hasn't been that affected by it , his tip is to just keep your breathing fine and trust in your abilities. You know your stuff and just go out and enjoy . Have a few beers aswell that always helps

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

A lot of bands have influenced us personally and together. From Green day and Blink 182 to Guns N Roses to the Smiths. We take a lot of things from other bands

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

I remember one fan asked us to sign an apple for them. I don’t get why an apple but sure enough it was an apple. If it was half eaten that would of made it even weirder

13. What do you think of your fans? 

We love all our fans. We are nothing without you guys, the band would not exist without fans

14. What do you think of our site? 

Your sites amazing it is doing a great job for up and coming bands. Gives them a great platform.

15. Something to add?
