Interviews: Devitalized

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Deathcore band, Devitalized, from the USA. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

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

The name Devitalized was originally a small side project I had with two of my friends, but it faded away as one of my good friends committed to photography full-time (shoutout to Sydney), and the other joined the navy (shoutout to Luke). 

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Surprisingly, growing up, I listened to a lot of butt rock, rap, or radio pop, but as I got a little older, I resonated a lot more with hardcore and deathcore because emotions that I never got to express were finally coming out, and I was like, “this is fire, I’m finally me.”

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

So, I met my brother, Jojo; I met Dawson through high school, Tay and Tommy we met through mutual friends! All around, I love those guys; they bring the best out in me.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

For me, my favorite band is definitely Chelsea Grin; I’m obsessed haha. It’s one of the first deathcore bands I ever found, and I’ve always loved what they’ve done and how they’ve done it.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Surprisingly, a lot of video games, life events, or rap songs have helped me/inspired me to write music. Like, I’ll listen to a Kodak Black song and be like, "Yeah, that’s hard," and it’ll inspire me for another track.

6. Where was your last gig?

The last show we played was at the Webster Theater in Connecticut!

7. Where would you like to perform?

I’d love to play Red Rocks one day! That would be a beautiful experience or Wembley.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Hot take, I thought it would always be fire to have a rap artist on one of our songs. Imagine how brutal the track would be if it went all deathcore, stopped, had a tempo change, and Kodak Black or 21 Savage dropped a disgusting verse. Honestly, something I’ve dreamt of.

9. Whom not?

My thing is, if they can spit on a Devitalized track, I’m down for whoever, as long as they get the message.

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

100% Literally every time I step on a stage, I’m nervous, but then I take a few deep breaths before we walk on, the squad gets hyped, and we tear that shit up. We just become different people on the stage for real.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

For me, it’s been Chelsea Grin, Sunami, Darko US, Kublai Khan, and even Boundaries, just bands I’ve resonated with a ton.

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

I wouldn’t consider this weird, but one dude came to our show in New Hampshire one of the first days of our mini-tour and had me write the setlist on a dollar bill for him; that shit was awesome. The weirdest thing was probably the dude that asked me to spit in his mouth in Boston. That shit was wild; bro definitely had some balls!

13. What do you think of your fans?

For me, I consider my fans family, and that’s what I mention them as too. But I’m thankful for our family; without any of our listeners, we’re just a couple of dudes with instruments and lyrics. We’re nothing without them, so they are our everything, and I’m thankful they find comfort in our music, sound, or style.

14. What do you think of our site?

Badass! Everyone should peep it.

15. Something to add?

Be kind to everyone. As someone who grew up and never knew how to formulate emotions, I’ve realized that I’ve made a lot of mistakes doing so and lost a lot of people not realizing my attitude. I’ve worked on it a lot. Kindness is free, and you never know what someone is going through! I’m thankful to have met so many amazing people and become the person I am today because of them.
