Interviews: Die Tired

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Rock band, Die Tired 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 planned it or came out just like that?

Originally derived from the old Marines adage: “You can run, but you’ll just die tired,” one might assume that their music has ominous undertones and potentially dark themes. Well, to Die Tired it is a punk rock way of saying, “Carpe diem!”

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We love the dynamics, energy, and emotions this genre hits. It allows for so much range and creativity in songwriting. The genre is also full of so many talented artists and musicians that you can’t help but be motivated to bring your best and keep grinding at your craft.

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

Jim (bass), Sean (guitar), and Matt (guitar/vocals) had been friends and working on songs for about a year together. Once they hit their momentum and realized the material was worth expanding, they found Brandon (drums) via a local social media musicians group. They reached out and scheduled a jam; the rest is history.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Jim – Manchester Orchestra

Brandon – Silverchair

Matt – Deftones

Sean – Alice in Chains

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Inspiration comes from all around us. A cool riff during practice that catches our ear, reflecting on everyday life, or current events. We consume a lot of information such as new books, music, and film. How these are internalized ends up being the foundation for the beginning of a riff or a lyrical theme.

6. Where was your last gig?

Willow Creek Brewery

7. Where would you like to perform?

We’d love to hop on a festival or two in the near future. The Franklin Music Hall in Philly would be big a bucket list place (for the singer, Matt). Of course, you have to say playing in any big arena would just be incredible.

8. Whom would you like to perform with?

Alice in Chains or Manchester Orchestra would be sick. 9. Whom not? We’re fairly open to playing with any act if the bill is right and the opportunity is worth it.

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

We tend to get a little nervous (or maybe excited which feels like nerves) before any show. However, once that first note hits we sit in the pocket fairly quickly. We are a big believer in visualization. At practice, we will take about visualizing being on the stage of our next show and performing like we are there to prepare for the gig. You also cannot take practice for granted. We all take the time to work on our craft individually and during band practices.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Alice in Chains, Deftones, Manchester Orchestra, Silverchair, Cave In, Tool, Jimmy Eat World, Pink Floyd, Katatonia, Devin Townsend (SYL, Ocean Machine in particular), Teenage Wrist, Ghost, Refused, Pantera, and many more.

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

Nothing too crazy as of yet, but the shows are picking up and I’m sure we’re due for something wild soon!

13. What do you think of your fans?

We know this is biased, but they are the best around. They support us in everything we do and come to everything. Our fans buy and rep our merch and spread the word all over about the band. We wouldn’t be here without them and extremely thankful for their support. They are our extended family.

14. What do you think of our site?

The site is awesome! Giving a spotlight to so many great acts and artists. We particularly dig the blend of media such as podcasts, interviews, videos, and discussions on artwork.

15. Something to add?

Our single “Play” just hit #17 on the Top 50 Rock Global Airplay Chart and hit #141 on the DRT Global Top 150 Independent Airplay Chart! We also have a huge show coming up on 12/10 at Nitro Bar in West Reading, PA. If you’re in the area you gotta come to check it out!
