Latest Bandcamp Release

Interviews: Down The Void


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Hard Rock band, Down The Void from Canada. 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 come up with Down The Void one night at band practice. At the time we had just started jamming together and we were trying to come up with a name that had meaning to us. We decided to brainstorm and come up with some stuff that was all pretty much garbage. After a few hours of jamming and discussing we decided to call it quits for the night and headed out for a smoke before leaving. Lou and Niko started getting into a debate on life and as we finished our cigarettes Niko looked up and said “We all go down the void sometimes.” Lou jumped up with joy and exclaimed that was the new band name, and that is how Down The Void became, out of the dark and into the light.

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

We always loved the heavier side of music, when we first started out we actually were playing more indie rock, but it never felt right until we decided to crank up the fuzz and tune those guitars down.

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

Lou and Nick have known each other since they were 8 years old and have been in bands together with their whole lives. Lou met Niko through an ad for a band looking for a bassist when the two met Lou introduced Niko to Nick and we have been rocking together since 2015.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Lou’s is Black Sabbath, Nick’s is Pantera, and Niko’s is IDLES

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Most of our songs come from life experiences we have had, we all write the songs together and every member has an equal say in the song writing process. The lyrics we write always have occult meanings and noids to Lovecraft and his work as Lou is heavily invested in all things that have to do with the occult.

6. Where was your last gig?

The last gig for us was July 2020 an outdoor show at the Legendary Rockpile Night Club here in Toronto. Was a intimate show due to the covid restrictions, but was a blast and we cannot wait until the next one.

7. Where would you like to act?

We are really looking into a European tour, so as of now Europe is at the fore front.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Ozzy would be amazing to be featured with. 

9. Whom not?

No one, we’d tour with anyone who is up for a good time and ready to rock.

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

We used to suffer from stage fright, but our advice for any beginners out there looking to play their first show is to just do it. The more you play the more you will notice the nerves will disappear. Expose yourself to the fear and conquer it…or do what Lou does and stare at the ceiling in the back of the room.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Black Sabbath was a big inspiration for us at the beginning. We love how they craft unique songs and can make them stick on your head for days.

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for? If they could have a piggyback ride. 13. What do you think of your fans? They are simply the best, always up for a good time and they really know how to let loose. 14. What do you think of our site? Dopest dope we’ve ever smoked! No but seriously it’s awesome, we love the reviews and articles you guys put out and we love the fact that we can discover so many new amazing bands from your site. 15. Something add? We got our newest single “Groovy Wolf in the Sky” dropping on May 22, 2021 so follow us on all the socials @downthevoid and make you you pre-save the song from the link in our bio because this song is going to knock your socks off!
