Interviews: Slaves To Humanity


This is a new interview with the Grunge Rock band Slaves To Humanity 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?

The band name just kind of happened. The name was from the old iteration of the band and had been thought of by a bunch of 12-13-year-olds, and when the lineup changed and I met the incredible musicians that I play with now, we just decided not to change it!

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Ya know, the genre was also just something that I had been playing with previously, and it was working! So as a band we decided that this "Sunset Grunge" thing that we were doing was just fun and hard-hitting. I have always been a HUGE fan of hard rock, and grunge, I mean, I grew up on Guns n Roses and Soundgarden, so to me this genre just made the most sense!

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

We actually all met about a week before our first show! It was extremely hectic, because basically, my last band had a falling out a few weeks before 2 big shows for us, so for the first one at the house of blues, I had a few of my friends sub in for me while I was searching for new members. So I went onto a website called Bandmix and put out an ad for STH, and immediately I got matches with Shane and Nathan, and from there, Shane brought Pierce in, and our former Rhythm guitarist Max had also joined through a band mix, and the next week, we were at the Whisky a Go-Go opening up for alien ant farm!

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Currently, the list is as follows

Aidan: Linkin Park

Shane: Ice Nine Kills

Nate: The Decemberists

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

There can be a song in anything. Any human, any experience, and any story. My job is to find and write about the ones that not only mean a lot to me, but the ones that mean a lot to others, and turn those into songs that people can relate to and see themselves in. Recently my songs have been about heartbreak and isolation, mostly because that's the stuff in my life that I feel is important to write about because people can relate to heartbreak and isolation, and to me, that's the most important thing you can get out of a song.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last show was at a place called Club 1900, in Norco California! It was SO much fun, and we played with our good friends in Speed of light, Black Rock candy, and S8nt Electric, as well as a band called Blue Sun who was from Coachella, which was rad!

7. Where would you like to act?

I'm not too sure what this question means... but if it refers to acting in a movie... then you can consider this to be my submission to audition for the role of Remy LeBeau... or Gambit from the Xmen...

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

I'd love to feature with literally ANYBODY. I absolutely love all types of music and would love to work with all kinds of artists. if I had to choose some big names, i'd love to work with Gavin Rossdale on a song, just because I think he is an incredible writer and I feel like I can learn a great deal from him and his writing style

9. Who not?

I wouldn't be able to choose. There are so many musicians out there and so many different genres and ways of writing, and id be stupid if i refused to learn and experience any of ti!

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

I know Nathan did for the first few shows. if you wanna beat it, you just kinda have to force yourself to. It's definitely not something that's easy to overcome, but the more you perform, the easier it'll all be to handle!

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Probably, Guns n Roses, and Soundgarden. These bands aren't just legendary but filled with incredibly talented artists. Guys like Slash and Cornell, kind of just take the sound of the band to a whole other level

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

One of the beauties of being in a smaller band is that we don't get very many weird requests. So far our fans have been nothing but Extremely kind and respectful to us and everybody who comes to the shows

13. What do you think of your fans?

I adore our fans. A lot of them started out by hearing us on the radio, or seeing us at a show, and became fans through those outlets. Seeing the familiar faces of people who came to the shows purely just to support us and the music is just an incredible feeling.

14. What do you think of our site?

I love it. Giving an outlet to small and big bands alike to share their music and personalities is always a plus in my book

15. Something add?
