Inside with “Pillar of Autumn”

As I said before “Pillar of Autumn” is a unbelievable band, this guys are kicken ass all over Detroit. They’ve taken off with some out standing songs like “Asthma” which took #1 Detroit City.com Also make sure to check out “Miles Away” and “Carpe Diem” on myspace. We had the chance to talk these guys and learn a little more about them and there history. Check it out.

“Pillar of Autumn” is an awesome name, does is stand for anything?

The name came from the name of a spaceship in the video game Halo. We decided to use the name because of the influence the game has had on the creative process of the band. When we find ourselves stuck in a song, playing each other in first person shooters is something that helps us clear our heads. Except for when Rob cheats. He always knows where to hide and find the good weapons. Alright, maybe he’s just really good… but we’ll still call it cheating.

Spencer: “Rob Wishes he was as good at me at Halo.”

Rob (replying to Spencer): “Spencer wishes he was as good as me at anything.”

Know how your working on a six song ep, when can we look forward to its release?

We are currently in pre-production and are finalizing dates to get back in the studio to record the final tracks. So we’re shooting for late summer but we haven’t settled on the year yet.

You guys come up with some amazing lyrics, what’s the writing process like?

Our writing process is quite crazy. We usually begin by jamming out melodies or rhythms that the band members have written that have caught our attention. Rob brings most of the musical elements to the table in the beginning, then we try to take the mess of parts and make it better. We repeat that until we find something that inspires us. Once we find that inspiration the song takes off. If we get lost, we look to each other to help out. Every member in the band can play all of the instruments we play enough to help with any part; it’s a team effort to the fullest. Then when Frankie says it sucks, we try it all over again.

Meet Good Luck Varsity

Adam already told you all about Good Luck Varsity. Now I’m here to get up close and personal with them. Enjoy the interview and be sure to check out Good Luck Varsity!

First off i just want to say thanks for doing the interview and best of luck with everything in the future.

Thank you for asking us! I think your website is a really awesome idea!

How’d you all meet?

The origin of Good Luck Varsity is a really long and twisting story but I’ll try to keep it short. Essentially my brother Evan and I both played in a band called The Rising Tide. When all was said and done at the end of TRT we we’re actually pretty relieved to be done with it because it had strayed so far from what we really wanted to be doing. At first we recorded a couple demos in our basement and put them online and then we eventually recorded our EP Head High Heavy Hearted. We used the EP to get potential band mates interested in joining us and put an application up online. Richie and Tim we’re already our good friends and they we’re an easy choice.
Drew and Dan both responded to our search online and after hearing both of them play we canceled all of our other auditions because we knew that this was going to be our line up

Jordan, those are some rad YouTube videos! Anything out there that people MUST see if they haven’t yet?

Haha thank you! I guess besides music editing and directing videos has always been something I’ve loved to do.
Everybody should definitely check out “No, Frankenstein” I did the editing on that video and actually won an award for it

7 Members, wow, thats pretty amazing. What’s your writing process like?

Well we actually only play with 6 members live. Our good friend Jeriah is filling in on Guitar and vocals while Tim is away taking care of some things.

We’ve just recently started to write new music for a new EP that we’re planning to record and release sometime this year. Generally somebody brings the shell of a song to practice and we all work together to fill it out.We just recorded our first real song as a full band on Sunday and we’ll be posting it sometime soon Continue reading

“Pillar of Autumn” stands above the crowd

Pillar of Autumn

When most people think of Michigan they think of a broke, lazy, and very cold state. What they don’t see is the enormous amount of talent in the mist. We know of a group that stands above the crowd. A band like this is a true diamond in the ruff. You’d expect to see these guys in New York, or maybe California. We found them in good old Detroit, Michigan. The band “Pillar of Autumn” has some serious kick ass songs and got more on the way. Make sure you listen to “Carpe Diem”. Click Here to check them out.

Woah!

Introducing….SORRY-OK-YES

Sorry-Ok-Yes

SORRY-OK-YES  hails from Italy and is about to go take on the world with there kick ass music, but before they do we had a chance to chat with them. Enjoy!

How’d you guys meet and how long have you been together?

Well, me (Davide Materazzi, lead singer and guitar) and Thomas (drums) first met because we had a common friend while playing a football match. I think we were 16 or 17. So we formed a punk/blues duo with rockabilly ingfluences. That was cool. Then we met Marco (bass) in September 2006 and we started this project. I think is going pretty good. But we always knew that we had great potential. It’s just a matter of perseverance and knowledge.

Are you excited to tour in the States?

Of course. It has always been our dream. ALWAYS. Last summer we played a dozen of shows in London. Then we played again in London in October 2007. And we’re playing in the UK about once every two months. The same will happen with the U.S. : if we’ll play 16 dates this year, next year they’ll be 40.
We have fixed ideas. Also, playing in Chicago and Detroit will be probably the best experience of my own life. Continue reading
