Interviews: Break Out Day

In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the  Alternative Rock/Pop Punk band Break Out Day, from USA. 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?

Jason got the idea while listening to All Time Low and the song “Break Out! Break Out!” came on. Andrew then added the word “Day” to the end of it.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We got into this genre through bands such as blink-182, Fall Out Boy, All Time Low, Yellowcard, Green Day, and many more. The songs are high energy, have catchy melodies, and can have heartfelt or angsty lyrics that are relatable. Another cool element of Pop Punk/Alternative is that the genre allows for bands to evolve and go in many different directions. It’s a great genre for someone finding their own voice.

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

Andrew and Jason: We’ll we’re identical twins so we’ve always known each other, but we knew Perry from little league baseball in 5th or 6th grade. He’s a year younger than us and had some classes with us in high school.

The first time we met Brandon was when him and Perry drove to our house for our first practice after Brandon had joined the band. We had skyped and spoken with him once before, but it’s definitely an odd way to be introduced to your band member. However, we’ve embraced our weird/complex band history and have fun with it. It’s worked out so far!

4. Each band member favourite band?

Andrew and Jason: blink-182
Brandon: Saosin
Perry: Rush

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

We all take inspiration from personal experiences, relationships, thoughts on life, etc. We use those sources of inspiration to create overarching themes that we then write about.

6. Where was your last gig?

It was at the Amityville Music Hall on May 10th. We always have a great time playing there.

7. Where would you like to act?

We would like to perform all across the United States and eventually make our way to Europe. There are so many cool venues and rock festivals in Europe that our favorite bands have played multiple times.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Playing shows with any of our favorite bands would be a dream come true. Bands such as blink-182, All Time Low, Sum 41, and others would be awesome.

9. Whom not?

The WalMart yodeling kid or the “Cash Me Outside” girl.

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

Jason: I was pretty nervous when we played at a school event our Junior year of high school. That was the first time Andrew and I had performed as a band in front of a live audience. I remember my amp was turning on and I had no clue as to why it wasn’t, so I asked my friend David who was working tech for the show and I could barely speak/get the words out. But besides that first time, I don’t get nervous for shows. I just get anxious to play.

Andrew: I was really nervous before our first show, which was at an event my high school was having. My hands were shaking before we started playing. Since then, I usually just get anxious, not nervous.

Always rehearse and put a lot of effort in beforehand because you’ll be able to have more fun if you’re comfortable.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Jason: Angels & Airwaves were the first band that truly pulled me into the world of music and made me think about music differently. A lot of their songs make you want to go conquer the world and that was a feeling that music had never given me before. After that, I started listening to blink-182, +44, Fall Out Boy, and many more. 

Each band had a pretty profound impact on the way I look at music in terms of what it means to be in a band, playing live, recording, etc. The more immersed I was in that world, the more I wanted to be part of it.

Andrew: Angels and Airwaves was the first band that really inspired me and had a profound impact on my life. I listened to their first record “We Don’t Need to Whisper” and it changed the way I thought about music and it was the first time music made me feel something. Shortly after I listened to blink-182, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, and many more, each inspiring me a lot in different ways.

Perry: I usually get into bands by listening to their drummers. Growing up, my parents listened to bands like Genesis, Styx, Spyro Gyra, and U2 so that’s mostly what I listened to as well as the bands that were on the radio like blink-182, Green Day, Good Charlotte, and Simple Plan. In middle school, when I started really exploring music on my own for the first time, I listened to a lot of classic rock, which got me into bands like Led Zeppelin, The Who, Pink Floyd, Rush, and Black Sabbath. As I got older and had been drumming for a number of years, I started listening to bands that were more advanced rhythmically, including Dream Theater, Mastodon, Slayer, Dethklok, Opeth, Gojira, and Meshuggah.

Brandon: I’ve drawn inspiration from a wide variety of bands in different genres. Sum 41 has probably has probably been the band that has inspired me the most throughout the years, but I also listen to a lot of post-hardcore and death metal. I enjoy trying to take all of the genres I love and mix them together into something different.

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

Perry: Someone asked me for the lyrics to our song “Your Halo,” which is weird because I’m the only member
who doesn’t sing.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Our fans are great. They inspire us to keep making music, playing shows, and doing what we love to do. We enjoy interacting with them on our social media pages as well as at our shows.

14. What do you think of our site?

Your website is great. The design and layout are awesome. The interviews you’ve conducted with other bands were fun to read as well.

15. Something to add?

Our new EP - Echoes Of The Past is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Play, and other various services. We’re going to continue playing shows this summer to promote the new EP. Our website is You can follow the band on our social media accounts:
