Interviews: A World Extinct

In this new occasion we have had the opportunity to interview the Metalcore  band A World Extinct from USA. Check out this band and give them a like on their FACEBOOK PAGE

1. What was the inspiration for the band name?

Honestly, there’s no real meaning behind the band name. It’s just something we all thought sounded cool, so we went with it.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

The versatility of heavy music is something that you can’t really find in any other genre. We consider ourselves a metalcore band. We could write a slower, softer song and it could still be metalcore. We could write a fast, high energy song and it would still be metalcore. We could write a heavy, low tuned song and it would still be metalcore.  How many other genres could you do that with?  Imagine if Beyonce came out with a song with breakdowns and screaming. No one would call that song pop or R&B. We really enjoy have the ability to write whatever we feel like and still be able to stay in the same genre.

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

Well we have a different line up than the one that we had when the band was first formed, but we were all connected somehow. David and Ian have been playing together in bands for years. Ian knew Damon and brought him into the band, and Damon was coworkers with Ryan. Chris and Ian knew each other from way back in the day, and they just happened to run into each other at a grocery store.

4. Each band members favourite band?

David – August Burns Red
Chris – Underoath
Damon – Green Day
Ryan – Motionless In White
Ian – Architects

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Mostly just life experiences. All of the songs off of our new EP Theodicy deal with things that we’ve gone through in life. Whether it being losing loved ones, depression, break ups, or just loss in general. Life imitates art.

6. Tell us about your last gig:

Our last gig was actually our EP release show. It was pretty cool to be surrounded by friends and family who all support us. It was one of our first few shows with our new line up, and so we’re still learning about each other and how we can feed off of each other. We played all the songs off of the EP, a couple of which we played live for the first time. No show is ever perfect, but we still had a lot of fun and we can’t wait for the next one.

7. Whom would you like to feature with?

Chris is a big fan of Underoath and Aaron Gillespie, so it would be pretty
cool to feature with him.

8. Any of you suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners?

None of us really suffer from stage fright, but unless you’re truly a natural, it’s always a scary experience standing in front of people and performing. The best advice we can give is just be prepared. Know your instruments and songs like the back of your hand, and you’ll have nothing to worry about. If you go up on stage already second guessing yourself, you’re not going to have a good time. Just worry about the things you can control. There’s always something that’s not going to go according to plan, but as long as you have a grasp on the things that you can control, you’ll be fine.

9. What bands have inspired you the most?

All of our favorite bands have inspired us in some way. Whether it be the style of lyrics, the music, the song structure, or something else, we’ve taken inspiration from a lot of different places. And not even just bands in our genre. We’ve taken influences from all different kinds of music and have used them in our songs.

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

We haven’t really been around long enough to have any wacky experiences with fans just yet. But we’re looking forward to them!

11. Tell us about your latest release and what it means to the band

We just released a six-song EP entitled “Theodicy.” This EP means a lot to the band because it was a way to express things that we haven’t been able to articulate. Not just the lyrics, but the feeling and the mood of the music too. The EP deals a lot with loss. The loss of family, friends, relationships, etc. It’s been an outlet for us, and we hope anyone who listens to it can relate to our words.
