Interviews: Virgin Witch

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Deathcore band, Virgin Witch 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?

We never really planned our band name, one night Kendal (Guitars) was watching the horror channel and the 1972 film "Virgin Witch" came on and it gave him the idea to name the band after that film. At the time we didn't have any other idea for a name so we stuck with Virgin Witch.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

All of us collectively enjoy listening to and playing Deathcore so the choice was fairly obvious. The thrill of playing that type of music live is also why we love doing this, the energy from the crowd gives us this certain vibe that you just don't get from other genres.

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

Adam (Drums): I've known Kendal (Guitars) and Keiran (Bass) for around 5 - 7 years now and when I met them Virgin Witch was not a band yet. The three of us bonded over our taste in music which is why we started this band. We met Caleb (Vocals) after our second show as Virgin Witch and just like the other two, we clicked over our love for music and our general humour.

4. Each band member favourite band?

Adam (Drums): Ingested, Architects, Opeth, Juice Wrld Keiran (Bass): Alpha Wolf, Dir En Grey, Bitterwood

Kendal (Guitars): Bring Me The Horizon, Chelsea Grin, Pixies Left To Suffer, To The Grave

Caleb (Vocals): Knocked Loose, Jeff Buckley, Tallah, BROCKHAMPTON, Loathe

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Collectively as a band we are all inspired by bands in the Deathcore/Hardcore genre. We take inspiration from the music we listen to and with that comes an idea for a song in mind that we record or map out to show one another.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was at The Music Room in Ipswich (UK) supporting our friends in Pretty Addicted.

7. Where would you like to play?

As a band, we would definitely love to play Electric Ballroom, Brixton Academy, or the Roundhouse which are all in London. We've gone to see gigs there so many times that if given the chance to perform there would be an honor.

8. Who would you like to support?

We all love Knocked Loose and we've witnessed them live and it's super intense so we'd love to support them, our boys in Distant would also be a good shout since they are amazing dudes and great performers.

9. Who not?

There are bands we wouldn't wanna support but they will remain nameless.

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

Adam (Drums): When we did our first few shows as Virgin Witch I had stage fright because I was focusing on what could go wrong. Overtime I learned to take that negative energy and turn it into something I could get excited over and once it had reached the time where we had to go onstage to perform, I went onstage and performed the best I could, and by doing that my stage fright no longer scared me. It's focusing on the exciting bits rather than dwelling in that fright is the thing that helps you cope with it all.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

For this single especially it was Vulvodynia, they have so much sick slam riffs and they came to mind when writing this song. For the new material, we would say Knocked Loose and Loathe, we've gone down that Deathcore crossed with Nu-Metal sound for this upcoming release which we are very excited to show you once it's complete.

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

Adam (Drums): Not the weirdest but we did a show at Chinnerys in February of 2022 and a fan asked for the beanie and said they'd pay me if I signed it, so I did what anyone would do if they were in a band in that situation. I signed the beanie and gave it to them. That's the only thing I could think of that could be considered weird but in my mind it was just funny.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Since Virgin Witch started playing live the fans we have made along the way have been extremely dedicated to us. We've had people turn up to shows saying they've seen us like 4 - 5 times already and have continued to see us, it's crazy but at the same time it's extremely humbling that we have received this amount of support in a such a short time. We continue to thank everyone who supports us because without them we wouldn't be where we are right now.

14. What do you think of our site?

Breathing The Core is a great website that showcases great underground music to people that want to hear something different and new.
