Interviews About Albums: WILL THE THRILL - Take It Sleazy (2023)

In this new interview, we sat down with the American Melodic Rock band WILL THE THRILL to ask some questions about their album "Take It Sleazy"

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

"Take It Sleazy" was a chance to dig deep and really pull out the best of what I have to offer as a musician and songwriter. Some songs are lighthearted and fun, some are mindlessly horny, a couple are nostalgic, and one or two are downright pissed off and fired up!

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

The title is from the time I moved to Hollywood in 2002. I was getting a bank account set up and when I was done, the bank representative said, "take it sleazy!" instead of "take it easy". I thought it was cool and I finally had a chance to use that line!

3. Which one is the composer of the CD/EP?

I (Will) wrote everything and played everything on the album except for bass and drums. My mom and sister did backing vocals on two songs as well, which was fun.

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

"The More I Lose, The More I Win". The beat is slamming, the choruses are big, the solo is crazy, and the lyrics are twisted, yet clever.

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

The message isn't very special, heh heh! Just never lose sight of who you are, stay focused on your goals, and hold on to your dreams. Also, get out there and screw your brains out--have some fun!

6. Are there some lyrics that you'd love to share?

In Always Be Number Two, I say "just behind rock and roll, is how much I love you". If I love somebody almost as much as I love rock and roll, then that's a bigger love than most people ever have. That's why they should still be happy, even if they come in second to music.

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

Judas Priest's music saved my life when I was going through some hard times as a kid, so I am thankful to them. My mixer/producer Joel Wanasek helped me improve musically by many levels over almost two decades of friendship and partnership. Mojoe Murphy and the late Tony "Doctor" Pepper were the guys who helped me get this album together, and finishing it is a great record of the time I got to play with them in my band. Lastly, I have to thank Kristina for being supportive while I do what I was put on Earth to do.

8. Something to add?

Yes. I stopped drinking alcohol in July of 2000 and my life is a lot better for it. If you have a substance abuse problem, get some help so you can quit. Part of "I Don't Like Your Shitty Band" is about a musician who thought it was cool to take drugs, and then they died before they turned 30 years old. We've been losing musicians to drug addiction for over half a century, and it would be nice if we learned from that history instead of repeating it. Sorry to end on a serious note, but I wanted more records with Jimi Hendrix, Andrew Wood, Robbin Crosby, Steve Clark, Layne Staley, Bon Scott, and too many more to mention. Thank you for the questions, and I hope you like "Take It Sleazy"! --Will The Thrill, 10/13/23
