Interviews: The End Of Everything

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Hardcore band, The End Of Everything 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?

Scott (guitar) and I started writing some songs and wanted to sound like American Nightmare. As the songs started to come out, we realized we sounded nothing like them but liked the direction we were going. We got the name from the line "cause that would be the end of everything" from AM/PM off of Background Music.

2.Why did you want to play this genre? 

We all have been into hardcore for years. I first started going to shows in 1993 and have been hooked ever since. We all have our introduction stories and bands that got us into music and wanting to play in a hardcore band.

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

I have known Scott for close to 15 years. He introduced me to Chris (drums) from his previous band and Chris introduced us to Artie (bass).

4. Each band member favourite band?

This is going to get tough. How do you pick just one?? We'll try...

Scott: The Smiths - I was introduced to them as a teenager and something about Morrissey just spoke to me. They’ve had a huge impact on my life. One day when I was 17 I had the song “Meat is Murder” on repeat just because I loved how dark and melancholy it sounded and something just clicked in my head and I never ate meat again.

Joel: Goo Goo Dolls - They started off as a punk band in the late 80's and progressed into the band you know now. Them being from my hometown (Buffalo, NY), they have been an important part of my music life.

Chris: Nirvana - An ultra important band that molded me from a young impressionable kid to a person passionate about making music.

Artie: Fugazi - Because they're fucking awesome.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Musically, our songs are brought to the table by Scott and Chris and Artie add their input to get the core of all the songs. Lyrically, I have a notepad on my phone where I write lines or ideas I have bouncing around in my head. I usually write about things going on in my life or things that have happened to me in the past.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was in February of 2020 with Terror, Creeping Death, Dare and Suffer the Loss in Las Vegas. It was an awesome show and we can't wait to get back to it as soon as we can. We did play an Instagram live show in June with Hand of Doubt. It was fun, but it's not the same as a show with all of our friends hanging out.

7. Where would you like to act?

We love to play shows. We want to play everywhere we can. When we start playing out again, we'd love to play at places with an incredibly rich history of shows. First places that comes to mind would be Gilman Street (San Francisco) or Chain Reaction (Aneheim).

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

As in play shows with? Oh man, anyone who loves hardcore as much as we all do. Bands that we would love to see and play with in the future include: Knocked Loose, Jesus Piece, Terror, Year of the Knife, Vein, Rotting Out, Ortodox, Dying Wish, Restraining Order, Tuning, Madball, One Step Closer, and like a million other bands!

9. Whom not?

Anyone who wears a MAGA hat or anyone who treats anyone as "less than". That shit is not welcome in hardcore.

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

As mentioned previously, we have all been in the scene for many years and have all played in previous bands. At this point of our band career, it's more anxious excitement than "stage fright". The best way to beat stage fright (in my opinion) is to remember that nothing lasts. This moment, this band, this scene can all be gone tomorrow. Live each day, and play each show, to the fullest.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

People have asked us who we sound like and I honestly can't answer that question. I think the band's overall influences help us to have a unique type of sound. We all like bands ranging from American Nightmare and Turmoil to Converge and Hatebreed. Lyrically, I love mellow bands that have emotion in their lyrics. Of course I dig the aggression of Hatebreed's "Smash Your Enemies" but also can feel the passion of "Anna Begins" by Counting Crows and "Love Letter Typewriter" by Mineral. I think that well balanced palette allows us to be different enough to stand out.

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

I honestly can't think of anything weird a fan has asked for. I feel like we are all very approachable and friendly.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Not to sound cliche, but we don't think about our listeners as "fans". We are all on the same level. We all love hardcore and want to learn about people and bands that have similar interests as ours.

14. What do you think of our site?

Totally dig it. As much as I love hardcore and reading about hardcore, I also like to learn about different style bands. Any time you can read about "sci-fi metal", djent and beatdown is a cool place to find new music.

15. Something add?

Hardcore isn't just a band on a stage or a few people telling you what is cool. It's bigger than all of us and was here before all of us and will be here after we've all been gone. The people who love hardcore and don't scene jump or start trouble are the best kind of people. Let's hope for 2021 to be a great year for hardcore around the world!
