Interviews: Sudden Deaf


This is a new interview with the Hard Rock band Sudden Deaf 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 plan it or came out just like that?

We were going over several names, none of which we liked and we were playing a bunch of house shows and dive bars and our friends would say “y’all were really good but it was super loud, so everyone would listen from the next room.” Which was hilarious and that sparked the name and it just came to life from that.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

The music kinda chooses you, It just feels right. We’ve always been fans of heavy music and it feels good to play your fucking heart out, wail on your instrument and scream into a microphone.

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

Yes, we’re all pretty close and have definitely known each other for a long time. We all for the most part grew up in the same neighborhood in Austin. We went to school together and all just generally hang out together and fish at the lake

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Alex “iron maiden” they are a day 1 inspiration

Drew “Thin Lizzy”

Phil lynott is a bass icon

Max “Pantera” for that GROOVE. Nasty Texas riffs save lives

Dylan “Judas Priest”

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Normally our songs are inspired topics or media we are Interested in and think are cool; it could be anything and everything from literature to history to cinema; things like Poe, Lovecraft, the Celtic genocide, Kursawa and Kubrick movies, and at times real life situations depending on who’s leading the writing process for that song.

6. Where was your last gig?

We played Swan Dive on Red River in Austin. It was definitely one of our favorite gigs we’ve played. The energy was alive, great turn out, and both the other bands were amazing. It was an Austin Independent Music event, and they delivered a great show.

7. Where would you like to act?

Outside stage at Mohawk. The craziest shows we’ve been to and a lot of our musical heroes have performed there. We all grew up in Austin and that’s a place we’ve had some of our best live music memories

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Buckethead, he freaking rips and does kung fu on stage. What’s not to love!?

9. Who not?

I don’t know, I think in an ideal world where we could do anything, there really wouldn’t be anyone we wouldn’t want to jam or play a song with or record something. But if we had to pick someone maybe not GG Allin just cause none of us are a big fan of feces in the face

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

No, we were ready to get on stage and get loud! Throughout each set you get more comfortable on stage, once we all lock in and the music starts flowing, the band and the audience all become part of this trance like experience that’s so soul freeing and real. For advice, excessive drinking while great for the nerves will always be you worst enemy on stage

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Max: Alex says “‘the sword’ cause their hometown heroes. Age of winters came out when we were kids and it was so cool to see this awesome band that’s from your home town playing music that speaks to your soul the way it did for me and seeing them play Mohawk as a a teenager is something I’ll never forget” “The Melvins man. They always stuck out to me. Big fat drum beats on top of a wall of weight. Dale Crovers techniques definitely got me to my drum style today. That band will never disappoint you live”

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

Drew: “Yeah nothing really pops off the mind right away. We’ll get people that offer some kind of service and pitch it to us like right after getting on stage or during sound check which doesn’t really go over well haha. But mostly you’ll just have someone approach you who’s had a little to much to drink, which happens to all of us once in a while (well at least it does to us) but you’ll basically have no idea what they’re saying and we definitely don’t like to be rude, so we usually just laugh, smile, and give a good “hell yeah!” and that can just be a weird situation.” 

13. What do you think of your fans?

Fans are what keep the music going, we love the fans when you're on stage and you see all of your friends and a bunch of familiar faces moshing and headbanging and having an awesome time it really pushes you to put on one hell of a show and just gets you amped in general

14. What do you think of our site?

It’s awesome to be here, thank you for doing what y’all do; supporting us and all the other bands on your site and bringing music to the people.

15. Something to add?

Just that we thank you and everyone out there that’s given us support and shown us, love. Thanks for listening, we’ve got more music coming out this year so look out for that.
