Latest Bandcamp Release

Interviews: Sectlinefor


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Industrial Metal band, 
Sectlinefor 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?

Piton named the band. It's something to do with a "section line", the markings placed on the body before surgery. I try not to ask him too many questions because I'm afraid of the answers.

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

We didn't choose the genre; the genre chose us. What genre are we, anyway? I come from a more art-rock background, but I'm an abysmal singer, hence why I fell into the metal-ish scene by default. Metal is a forgiving artform because I can simply scream when the note isn't available. It's also very therapeutic, which saves me money. As a kid, I grew up listening to heavy music, so even though I'd rather be in a Smiths cover band now, my younger self would be immensely proud of my current path.

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

Nope! Welcome to the modern world! We connected online. I was scouted then lured into Sectlinefor via many false promises. We were initially a four-piece band with a manager and label interest, or so they told me. However, one by one, each individual turned out to be full of it, so Piton fired everyone until we were a duo without anything else. It's much better now. We're totally independent, we record on our own, we make all the creative decisions, we maintain complete control. We also like to move fast, which other people have struggled with before.

4. Each band member favourite band?

It's a difficult question. For me, The Beatles, David Bowie, Radiohead, Sonic Youth, and Nirvana all played monumental roles in my musical upbringing. Piton has no favourite bands. He just listens to washing machines and power drills.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Creative expression is both a gift and a curse, like a delicious poison that requires regularly purging or it will kill you. It's less of an inspiration and more of an exorcism of demons. The fear of mediocrity and monotony keeps me running. That said, Kissing Strangers During an Outbreak was very much influenced by the ominous atmosphere that clouded our planet during the COVID pandemic. I also like girls a lot.

6. Where was your last gig?

We did a one-off album release show in 2019 at The Unicorn Camden for our second record, Don't Make This About You. And then I went travelling. Corona ruined everything soon after that, but we're ready to go again!

7. Where would you like to act?

Act? Like, perform? Primavera Festival. Or in a space station. Maybe one day we can do a hologram tour like ABBA and get money for nothing. But, for now, even kid's parties are fine.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

I'd love to do an album where each song features a prominent female voice to balance us out. So in case they're reading, shout-out to Regina Spektor, Alanis Morissette, Kim Gordon, Taylor Swift, PJ Harvey, Mary Timony, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Lana Del Rey, Rosalía, Jessica Lea Mayfield, and Charli XCX. Hit us up!

9. Whom not?

I'd be open to a conversation with anyone.

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

Oh yes. I've had out of body anxiety attacks before shows. It kills me. I only have bad advice, but I drink four beers and one Jägerbomb. That seems to be the sweet spot for me. My vocal performance probably suffers, but I jump around a lot, so everyone is happy. Another trick is to look at photos of David Bowie just before I go on. That helps.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Besides the names I said previously, Mike Patton is my #1 vocal inspiration. Any rock singer who doesn't cite Patton as an influence probably sucks.

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

My DNA.

13. What do you think of your fans?

We are endlessly grateful to those who come to our shows because it's less embarrassing for us.

14. What do you think of our site?

It's a great site that deserves lots of love, and we thank you for gifting us with some space in it!

15. Something to add?

Yes, please watch our video on YouTube for The Saddest Face in All of Existence. Everyone who sees it freaks out. Our third album, Kissing Strangers During an Outbreak is dropping on 28th May 2021, available on all streaming platforms. Guaranteed good time for all!
