Interviews: War Drum Syndicate


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Metal/Rock band, War Drum Syndicate, 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?

WDS: Guitarist Mike Laws and myself(Lead Vocals-Chieftain Hawks ) wanted to use something pertaining to rhythm, war and tribe. Mike threw out War Drum and I said good but needs another word and I threw out Syndicate, we agreed and the rest is becoming history.

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

WDS: We have a very wide range of listening and influences but rock/metal genre naturally fits how we express ourselves.

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

WDS: Yes. Guitarist Mike Laws and myself (ChieftainHawks) had a band previously and when that band fizzled out, we discussed a more serious project and after years of planning and writing, we are finally arriving with War Drum Syndicate

4. Each band member favorite band?

WDS: Chieftain

Hawks-(vocals) – tough for me to answer… Eagles

Mike Laws-(guitarist) – Killswitch Engage

Greg Yates(drummer) – All time: The Beatles Current: Jinjer

Rob Pain(bassist) – Rush

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

WDS: Positivity. Anything that involves someone overcoming adversities and never giving up.

6. Where was your last gig?

WDS: Shagnasty’s in Huntsville Al.

7. Where would you like to perform?

WDS: Any venue that has a crowd that wants to rock!! Huge festivals are our main goal but we love all size venues with people that want to throw down.

8. Whom would you like to perform with?

WDS: Sevendust, Killswitch Engage, Tool, Slipknot, Stone Sour, Jinjer and the list goes in and on…

9. Whom not?

WDS: Tell us about the latest release. WDS. It’s a laid back rocker with a huge catchy chorus, it’s about when people make up lies to burn you down but you always rise above the ashes like the Phoenix. 

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

WDS: Most definitely. Tip: Always prepare yourself before the gig; have all equipment and yourself organized and conditioned. Whenever nerves start to kick in, focus on breathing and shift focus on warming up voice or whatever instrument you perform. It works great because it takes your mind off nerves and builds confidence.

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

WDS: This list can go for a long way but will name a few-  Sevendust, Killswitch Engage, Pantera, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden,Faith No More, Incubus, Jinjer, Shinedown, Deftones, Linkin Park, Lamb of God, Bullet for my Valentine and so many many more . 

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

WDS: The shirt off my back, in which I obliged because it’s the kind of people we are.

13. What do you think of your fans? 

WDS: We absolutely love our fans! Our fans are the best and we will champion every single one through our music!

14. What do you think of our site: Breathing The Core? 

Your site is awesome and we highly recommend all fans follow [Breathing The Core] to keep up with new bands coming up!
