Interviews: CARRIER

In this new occasion we have had the opportunity to interview the  Hardcore band CARRIER, from UK. Check out this band and give them a like on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?   

The name "Carrier" was just kind of picked out of nowhere by Olly our bassist. We started off under a completely different name that we didn't like so when it came to picking a new one Carrier was just said at complete random, but we all really liked it so that's what we went with.  

2.Why did you want to play this genre?   

I love the combination of aggression and melody it creates. A song can be fast and heavy one minute and then calm and beautiful the next. It’s a rare opportunity to play two drastically different styles within the space of 2 minutes and it be coherent and cathartic.  

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

Kris, Olly and I all knew each other for a couple of years prior and I had known of Totti from his previous bands, albeit not necessarily very well.  

4. Each band member favourite band?   

Mine is probably August Burns Red. They have a brilliant blend of metalcore and just about any non-metal genre you can think of. Their instrumental prowess is incredible and inspiring, and it’s always exciting to see a band stick to what they’re good at by expanding their sound in strange and unique ways.    

Kris's favourite band is between Counterparts and As I Lay Dying, He has taken huge inspiration lyrically from Counterparts and musically from As I Lay Dying.  

Olly's favourite band is between Gallows and Conveyer.  

And Totti's favourite band is Bleeding Through, we're all very into that old school metalcore crossed with modern day hardcore.  

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?   

I get a lot of inspiration from life, the ups and downs are a natural process of existence and I try to reflect that in our music. Some times it’s fast paced and exciting, the next it’s calm and reflective.  

6. Where was your last gig?   

In our hometown playing For Evan Sake Festival.  

7. Where would you like to act?   

I’d love to play an O2 show. We’re quite far off it now but I think it would be amazing to be on a stage that renowned. We're basically happy with playing anywhere whenever we can, we love playing shows but to get to that higher level would be a huge achievement.  

8. Whom would you like to feature with?   

If Bleeding Through did any reunion shows I would love to have the opportunity to play with them. They were one of the first real metal bands I got into and blew my mind from an early age of how heavy and fast music could be.  

9. Whom not?   

I don’t think there any many if any bands we wouldn’t like to play alongside. We love music and we’re happy to share the stage with anyone who feels the same.  

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

Every time before I get on a stage. Usually I just like to make sure I’m prepared for the set and can play everything perfectly, and have a laugh with the rest of the guys. We’re in it together and if we all get on stage in a good head space and having fun, then we’ll have a great time. None of us really get stage fright unless is a very important/big show. The best thing to do is be calm and relax by having a laugh with your band mates or any mates. But i think being on the same mental wavelength with your band mates is key to preforming well together.   

11. What bands have inspired you the most?   

Probably Counterparts, lyrically and musically they were a big influence for our debut EP. Another example of a great combination of beauty and aggression in music.  

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

We haven't had any as of yet haha!  

13. What do you think of your fans?   

We love each and every person who is kind enough to call them self a fan of our band, they’re all amazing.  

14. What do you think of our site?  

I think it’s pretty sweet, I like how many bands both big and small are getting featured and having an opportunity to speak to the world.
