Interviews: Miles From Home

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Metalcore band, Miles From Home 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?

So, we kind of came up with a bunch of band names we liked and narrowed it down to one. Although, Miles From Home was one that stood out to me, mainly because the narrative of the first few songs we released was more based on how sad it can be to never feel comfortable, to never feel at home.

2. Why did you decide to play this genre?

I think each member of our band would definitely say that metalcore is our favourite genre. Not only that but all of our favourite bands are metalcore and every musician wants to follow the bands that inspired them but put their own tang to it, right?

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

A few of us knew each other through school years back, but no one was close. We all sort of found each other through nights out and realised we had the same music taste and everything sort of clicked from there.

4. Each band member's favourite band?

Matt – Adept

Owen – Currents

Ethan – Currents

Tom – Bring me the Horizon

TJ – Wage War.

5. Who or what inspires you to write?

Mainly personal experience in my opinion. Usually, when you’re at a certain point in your life and feel like getting your emotions out, it’s always helpful to use the bad to make a positive and make some material. Not only that but I think people have moments of inspiration randomly. Sometimes I randomly feel super inspired to write, and that’s when the best songs are made.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was actually last month in a place called The Roof in our hometown. It has to have been one of my favourite gigs we’ve played. Free entry, all of our friends and we headlined, it was an awesome experience.

7. Where would you like to play?

I think I can speak for all of us when I say we really want to play Download Festival, I feel like that’s our ultimate goal. Though, touring Europe would be a huge step for us.

8. Who would you like to support?

I think Wage War would be surreal for us. Purely because they were who inspired the style of music we play. They’re kind of pioneers for modern metalcore so that would be insane.

9. Who not?

I’m not sure if there’s particularly a band we wouldn’t want to support. However, we definitely wouldn’t want to support a band that ignores us or doesn’t at least have a decent chat with us. We’ve played a few shows before with bands that just set up, play the show and then leave.

10. Any of you suffered from stage fright? Tips for beginners?

I think all of us have been super nervous before some shows. It can be absolutely terrifying, to begin with but once you get through the first track it becomes super fun. I think the best advice I could give is to own it, just get up there and enjoy what you do, and appreciate the fact that you get the chance to.

11. Bands that have inspired you the most?

Wage War as a whole. They’re the band that really set our style and set us in motion in terms of writing. Vocally for myself, I think Papa Roach and Ice Nine Kills were huge inspirations for me as Jacoby and Spencer were the vocalists that made me realise what I want to do in music. The rest of the band, they’re all super obsessed with Currents so they’ve become a big inspiration for the band itself.

12. What Weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

I’ve never really had an odd request. I suppose the weirdest thing would probably be when a girl asked me to wear her tiara through the show. So, I did it, of course. Why not?

13. What do we think of your fans?

We have some super cool fans from around the world. Specifically, Canada and USA. They like to interact with us which we enjoy as it's nice knowing people appreciate our music. We’re starting to grow a bigger fan base now. I feel like it’s super important for bands to really appreciate the fans, as, without them, there wouldn’t be any music.

14. What do we think of our site?

I think your site is super cool. I really like the aspect of bands from different countries. It allows you to discover new bands from different areas. The best part for me is the genre page. It’s really awesome to see how easy it would be to find a band of a really niche genre.

15. Something to add?

Thanks for having us on your awesome site.
