Interviews: Rituals

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Post-Hardcore band, 
Rituals from the UK. 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?

The band name came from Ewan and it was just a case of the name felt right for the style of music we were writing.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Growing up metalcore was a genre we all loved listening to, so naturally the music we wrote contained influence from the genre.

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

Ewan and Lewis met at college, they were in the same year group, and bonded over their love of coffee. While Ewan went to BIMM London, Lewis continued college in Newcastle. Then at the end of 2020 we decided we needed a bass player, to free up Lewis as a frontman, and Ewan had previously been talking to Dom who he felt was a perfect fit for the band.

4. Each band member's favourite band?

Lewis – While She Sleeps

Ewan – Machine Head

Dom - Metallica

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

The majority of our inspiration for writing songs, comes from the energy from the crowd at live shows and the feeling we all get when we listen back to a song once its finished.

6. Where was your last gig?

Santiago Bar in Leeds in February 2020

7. Where would you like to play?

The one venue as a band collectively we have dreamed of playing is Brixton Academy, whether supporting or one day headlining, we just want to play that venue.

8. Who would you like to support?

Any of While She Sleeps, Bury Tomorrow, Bleed From Within and Malevolence 9. Who not? Gotta be honest can’t see us warming up a Lewis Capaldi crowd anytime soon!

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

None of us in the band suffer from stage fright, we rehearse a lot, so we are always confident before going on stage. Our advice to any beginners would be to practice as if you are on stage in front of a crowd in your own time as well as at band rehearsals.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

We are influenced by a variety of different music, from the metal scene it is bands like While She Sleeps, Architects, Bury Tomorrow and Bleed From Within but also artists outside of metal like Tom Misch, Depeche Mode and Oasis

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

Ask us after our EP release show on the 3rd of September in Newcastle, we intend to have a very energetic crowd, as we have not played our hometown in over a year!

13. What do you think of your fans?

The fans that we have amassed so far are extremely supportive and even let us live at home rent free!

14. What do you think of our site?

We love your site as it provides easy to access content about up and coming bands, which is a massive help to smaller bands in the genre.

15. Something to add?

Thank you for taking the time to feature us on your site and we can’t wait to release our debut EP ‘AWAKE” on the 3rd of September.
