Interviews: GHOSTATIC


This is a new interview with the Electronic Rock/Industrial Rock band GHOSTATIC 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?

It was a typo, actually. I've always been a paranormal enthusiast. I was trying to explain to someone an experiment where you take an old camcorder, plug the RCA cable in an old analog TV, and turn the camcorder on while facing the TV. It creates a feedback loop of "Ghost static(Ghostatic)" that looks like it taps into another dimension. You sometimes see all sorts of shapes that look like people. So I rolled with it. It's not the first time I named a band after a paranormal-related subject.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

What genre are you speaking of? I can't even tell you exactly what genre Ghostatic is. I've heard Electronic Rock, New Industrial, and everything in between. I can tell you what it's not... Ca-ca

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

Todd and I knew each other from back in the Parma days. He was my neighbor. He knocked on my door with a turbo for a car in his hands and asked me and a friend how to put it on his car, no joke. He actually taught me to play some guitar riffs. Bailee popped up on my tinder a few years ago. We never actually went on a date. But I knew she was someone I needed to connect with. Turns out she meshed like one of the guys. We know all the dirt on each other. I actually credit a random date for meeting Gavin. This girl took me to a bar I'd never been to. Gavin was hosting a karaoke thing. He had a good voice and good vibes. It was a no-brainer when I saw his work ethic too.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Adamo: That's an evolving question. I get bored easily these days. This week it's Phealah

Gavin: Nekrogoblicon, Slipknot, and Panic At The Disco at the moment. Todd - Green Jelly and Weird Al

Bailee: Slipknot! We just saw them last night.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Literally anything. The drone of a power station. An ominous sky. Split-second snippets of a melody within a song from any genre or era. Sorry if you are looking for something specific.

6. Where was your last gig?

Winchester in Lakewood. As a new band, gearing up for the summer and heading out of the Cleveland area.

7. Where would you like to act?

We are trying to play any and everywhere. I, personally, was hoping for Inkarceration this year. two days too late. Mansfield Reformatory is my kind of location. Haunted asf. We are doing Metal in The Mountains this August so we can't complain of being a new band.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Creed. All jokes aside, Tremonti is a beast. But for real, Kill The Noise. I'm into new electronic music. It's the most innovative genre atm.

9. Who not?

Cardi B. Her "macaroni in a pot" makes me gag.

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

Adamo: Yup. It Feels like jumping out of a cold pool, naked. Until the show actually starts then it's like a hot tub with a glass of merlot. Alcohol helps

Bailee: Stage fright is for pussies. When I do I keep in mind that the crowd won't know 80% of your mistakes

Todd: Nah. Beer

Gavin: Every time The symptoms of being nervous are sweating, increased heartbeat, dilation of the eyes, and possible involuntary shaking The symptoms of being excited are sweating, increased heartbeat, dilation of the eyes, and possibly involuntary shaking. Whenever I get nervous I remember that my body physically is doing the same thing as if I'm excited and that being nervous is a mentality before I make the jump. I just have to remember how good it feels to make that jump before I get on stage. Then I go out there and enjoy the free-fall as I do my best on stage to entertain all those amazing people who came to support us.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Certain artists like Trent Reznor, Jerry Cantrell, and Chino are just a few in the rock world. Typical, I know.

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

Feet pics. Specifically the bottoms of my feet.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Terrible! They should stop listening to our music immediately!

14. What do you think of our site?

I was hoping for a MySpace link as that is where we conduct most of our business. But all and all, it's pretty dope!

15. Something you'd like to add?

46 and 2
