Interviews About Albums: Sic Waiting - A Fine Hill To Die On (2022)


In this new interview, we sat down with the American Punk band Sic Waiting to ask some questions about their new album "A Fine Hill To Die On"

1. What can you say about this new EP/CD?

It’s finally out. We recorded it during the pandemic, but the songs have been building up since Derailer. I’m really proud of it. As long as we keep releasing music that’s better than the last thing we released I’m happy, I think this is better than Derailer, and I love that record.

2. What is the meaning of the EP/CD name?

For 20-plus years we’ve stayed the same. We have gotten better at doing what we do, but we haven’t really evolved. And we have chosen to stay that way. The record title is about that conscious decision. We choose to die on this hill instead of going anywhere else.

3. Which band member is the main songwriter and how does the songwriting process in the band usually work?

I (Jared) write all the songs, then I bring them to musicians that are better than me and they make them better and worthy of recording. Then we take them to a producer who makes them even better. I have good ideas, but the real talent is knowing people like Daniel and Jason, and Cameron and having them take the songs from good to great.

4. If you had to pick one favorite song, which one would you pick?

My personal favorite on the new record is One Fell Swoop. At the end of the day, I love a good and simple punk rock song.

5. Is there a special message in this EP/CD? If there is what is it?

I’m not sure how special it is. We don’t make records to send a message, and we don’t make records with an idea in mind. We make what we’re good at, and that’s why it’s stayed the same for so long. A Fine Hill to Die On is only that.

6. What are your favorite lyrics from one of your songs?

I’m not going to touch that one. My lyrics are personal, for sure, and I love putting them out. I don’t love defining them in interviews. Any listen to a SW or a Dead Frets record should give enough insight into it.

7. Which inspirations have been important for this album? Like musically or friends, family, someone you'd love to thank especially?

The songs in this band are personal to me, but the influences are obvious. It’s all the bands that are still the reason we play. No Use For a Name, Lagwagon, Strung Out, etc. We are still trying to do them justice when we put out records.

8. Something to add?

A Fine Hill to Die On is the best thing we’ve done to date, I am jaded as fuck on this business but I really do appreciate everyone that has supported this record. Thanks for the interview!
