This is a new interview with the Progressive Metal band THE PULSE ESCAPE METHOD from Canada. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you plan it or came out just like that?

When Blair was writing the first few tracks he was looking for something that was representative of our intentions. Starts and stops, playing around the beat, grooves and the like. "The Pulse-Escape Method" came from here: and it works as a tongue-in-cheek way to describe the beat and feel of a lot of the tunes.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

J: The "progressive" space allows for essentially free-form creation. Metal in itself is already has a tendency to allow for a "no rules" approach, so it's a great genre for innovation.

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

J: Luke and Blair knew each other from TDL, and Brian is an old friend of Blair's. I met them through Vampr, which is essential "Tinder for bands"

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Josh: Erra

Blair: Tesseract

Luke: Architects

Brian: Tool

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

J: I take a lot of inspiration from the things that get me frustrated. I find it to be a constructive way to manage my frustration and emotions when I can turn it into a representational message. It's cathartic to me to write about issues like prison reform or social injustice.

Blair: it's a very private and personal experience for me. I start with a subject or a feeling from my experience and try to convey my thoughts and feelings through the song

6. Where was your last gig?

Mavericks - Ottawa

7. Where would you like to act?

J: Montreal. The greatest shows I've ever been to have been in Montreal, the energy there is unmatched. Our analytics also suggest we have a following out that way, so it would be nice to show the Quebecois what we are all about in a live setting.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

J: Kyle from Brand of Sacrifice. It's a bit of a genre mismatch but there are some hard-hitting sections in Pulse songs that could really crank up a notch or 3 with someone like him.

Blair: anyone from The Contortionist or Tesseract

Brian: Nas. Or Chino from Deftones.

9. Whom not?

J: Atilla. literally anyone else

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

J: Remember that music should be a selfish experience. When I get on stage, I am there because I love making and sharing music, not to impress people. The focus of your set should be to enjoy your time with your bandmates - and if you can turn some heads in the crowd, then that's a bonus.

Blair: Used to get extraordinarily nervous, and hype me up through anxiety and stress. More recently I have spent more time dialing in on myself leading up to the show for a more calming and positive experience on stage.

Brian: I'm a grownup and I don't get nervous.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Tool, Deftones, Limp Bizkit (3 song demo ONLY), Poison the Well, The Contortionist

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

J: I used to have a Pepe the Frog guitar strap, and I got a lot of offers to buy it. 

Blair: We also got a request to play a Tragically Hip song once.

13. What do you think of your fans?

J: great taste in music, terrible taste in denim

Blair: the world

14. What do you think of our site? 

It slaps/slays/is lit/is on fleek/dope

15. Something to add?

Stay safe, and stay tuned ❤️
