Interviews: Before There Was Rosalyn

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Post-Hardcore/Metalcore band Before There Was Rosalyn 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 come out just like that?

The name comes from William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. Rosalyn is briefly mentioned at the beginning of the play. She’s the recipient of Romeo’s affection until the moment he lays eyes on Juliet. The band name is an ode to the road not taken and the weight of our choices.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

I think there’s something inherently beautiful in punk rock/metalcore/post-hardcore that makes it special in ways that transcend genres. There’s something in it that leads to moments where I've felt truly alive.

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


4. Each band member's favorite band?

Collectively, Limp Bizkit. They’re a band everyone in our band can jam and love.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

The intrinsic nature of being alive. Music is an extension of an insatiable need to create and share a part of our soul with another human being.

6. Where was your last gig?

It was back in January at The Merry Widow in Mobile, Alabama. We loved it.

7. Where would you like to act?

We’d love to play festivals like Furnace Fest, Rockville, and Capulet Fest.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Would love to tour with Limp Bizkit, Creed, and Nickelback. Would love to feature with Norma Jean and Deftones.

9. Whom not?

We’re open to anyone.

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

Every single time I take the stage, for about five minutes before the first note hits. The only advice I have is to wait for that first note and never look back.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

For me, it was bands like Norma Jean, The Chariot, Underoath, August Burns Red, ZAO, and Maylene 7 The Sons of Disaster.

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

I honestly don’t think I've ever been asked for anything too weird.

13. What do you think of your fans?

I'm grateful to anyone who listens to our music or comes to a show. It means the world.

14. What do you think of our site?

I think it’s awesome that you cover such a wide variety of bands.

15. Something to add?

Thanks for doing this and, to anyone who reads this, hope to see you at a show. Make sure you say hi.
