Interviews: Bad Heritage

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Rock band Bad Heritage 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 plan it, or came out just like that?

AMELIA: The band name took us throwing stuff out until something stuck. Bad Heritage resonated with us as it’s a little nod to all the bad things our ancestors did and how unhappy we are regarding the climate crisis. That said, we’re not a political band at all, we just like to note that we’re aware.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

AMELIA: This genre is one I love listening to, all of us love listening to and there isn’t enough of it around in the mainstream fields. So, I was like how do we bring it back? We have to bring it back ourselves - drag it back to the mainstream. The mainstream has been lacking huge riffs and catchy vocals melodies.

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

AMELIA: Nope. I and Lauren met on Join My Band which is basically a website where you can find other musicians. I think we found Jonny on there, too, and Tom was through a Facebook music group!

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Jonny - Thin Lizzy

Amelia - Rival Sons & The Beatles

Lauren - Rival Sons & Don Broco

Tom - Slipknot & TesseracT

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

AMELIA: So, I usually write lyrics from my personal experiences or problems I have with my identity. Most, if not all, of our lyrics, are something I’ve personally experienced. 

LAUREN: For me, when I write songs, I’m usually just inspired by the last gig I went to or a new album that’s been released. Hearing other people's music sets off a fire in my belly and it makes me wanna write!

6. Where was your last gig? 

JONNY: Peer Hat, Manchester. It’s a kooky little pub in the Northern Quarter. 

7. Where would you like to play? 

JONNY: Anywhere that will take us. Eventually, it would be nice to branch out from Manchester, though!

8. Who would you like to support?

LAUREN: Rival Sons, The Last Internationale, Greta Van Fleet... The Darkness, Black Stone Cherry. If you’ve got great riffs, we wanna support you basically!

9. Who not? 

LAUREN: Ooft, this is a spicy one. I don’t think we’d wanna support bands like The 1975 or like The Kooks and stuff. I do actually like those bands, but I just don’t think we’d fit the bill.

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

LAUREN: I definitely have. The Academy was a big challenge.., Jonny and Amelia suffered with that one. Amazing experience, but all three of us were a bit shaky on that one. I personally was taking CBD that day, all day, to try and chill me out. Best advice I can give to a newbie is probably to see the stage as just another rehearsal!

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

LAUREN: Rival Sons, Don Broco, Vukovi, The Last Internationale.. Stand Atlantic. Some are heavy rock with like synths and some in that list are heavy blues rock and stuff. They all are very riff led and they make you move when you see them live. That’s the energy I want to capture.

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

LAUREN: The name of my brand of toothpaste.

13. What do you think of your fans?

LAUREN: Bloody lovely. Half our fanbase is Amelia’s family haha! But, really, everyone’s lovely. Super supportive and genuine. Especially gentleman Joe who’s been to nearly every show of ours!

14. What do you think of our site?

We love that the site is dedicated to lesser-known bands and think it opens to a section of the music world that, perhaps, you wouldn’t have come across before. 

15. Something to add?

We just wanna plug the single, give it a spin, watch the video and get down to a show. We love playing live and think our songs hit differently in a live performance! Keep in touch -
