Interviews: Everyday Dogs

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the  Alternative Rock band, Everyday Dogs, 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?

When we were first starting out as a group, we had a couple of different band names we experimented with, but never really liked. A few months in, Julian Inglima (lead singer/rhythm guitarist) was working on a song he’d written called “Everyday Dogs”, and we all really liked the idea of having that as our band name.  
2.Why did you want to play this genre?

For myself, [Jesse Inglima, lead guitarist/backing vocalist] I started to really like rock music when I was first learning how to play guitar. I listened to a lot of ‘70s and ‘80s hard rock and was obsessed with Slash, Randy Rhoads, and Tom Scholz [from Boston]. I loved their huge tones, big guitar riffs, and their skill as lead players. That’s something that has really never gone away in both how I play as well as how I contribute to the music of Everyday Dogs.

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

Julian is my brother, so I’ve known him a while. Everyone else we’ve known from different friend groups over the years that were also into the same kind of music we liked to play.

4. Each band member favourite band?

Jesse: Muse

Julian: Soundgarden

Tyler [bassist]: Thrice

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

The songs that either myself or Julian write usually stem from various guitar riffs and chord progressions first, and are then fleshed out when we as a band jam on those ideas. We’ll take something that’s going in our lives sometimes as the basis for the song and lyrics, but we’ve also recently taken steps in engaging with a song as creative writing and telling some kind of story too.

6. Where was your last gig?

We played at a spot just outside of Athens called Pappy’s Field, which is a covered stage out in a big farm field. Cool vibe and definitely a first for us.

7. Where would you like to perform?

Personally, I would love to do a show at Variety Playhouse in Atlanta. I got to see Royal Blood, one of my favourite bands there a few years ago, and it’d be cool to play that same stage.

8. Whom would you like to perform with?

Foo Fighters

9. Whom not?

Limp Bizkit

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

Sure, I know when I was first starting out, just being up in front of a bunch of people was terrifying. I think something that helped me was realizing, for the most part, the audience is on your side. Nobody shows up to the gig hoping the band sucks, so they’re naturally rooting for you to succeed. Taking away that confrontational barrier between you and the crowd I think helps a lot.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

I speak for the whole band when I say that we’re huge Rush fans (R.I.P. Neil Peart). Their music and song writing is truly on another level, but we’ve got so much respect for how they built their fanbase truly from the ground up, speaking to individuals through their shows and their music.

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

Signing someone’s forehead. Definitely a first.

13. What do you think of your fans?

They’re incredible. We love that we’re able to connect to people through what we do, and we’d literally not be able to do what we do without their support.

14. What do you think of our site?

It’s cool. Love how you guys take the time to recognize the nuance in different sub-genres of rock and metal.

15. Something to add?

We have a new single, “Black Fire”, available to stream and download October 23rd.
