How did you guys come up with this title?
Without getting too deep into it, it's the title of the song that we felt best described the overall feel of the ep.
Where do you get the inspiration to write the type of music you do?
Living in Michigan (or the midwest in general) can be real shitty sometimes, we come from a very beautiful place that has become littered with abandoned factories and disheartened people. We just take everything around us that makes us upset and we put it in our music. we're not always as depressed or angry as our songs make us out to be, we like to have fun.
I’m not really familiar with Prospect Records. Tell us what this label is about, what they have released so far etc?
Prospect is a pretty small label based out of Boston, besides us everything they've released has come from the east coast. We're grateful that they decided to work with us and put out our record, they did a great job with it.
‘I Give No Fucks’ has some nice footage from band’s live action. What’s the craziest stuff you’ve seen during your show?
That's a hard one for me, nothing's really sticking out right now but i know i'll think of something later and feel like an idiot for not remembering. Everytime we play flint things get pretty crazy.
And have you ever had a show which totally sucked? The type of gig when the crowd is not moving, the vibe is not there and you just want to get over with it and go home…
Haha yeah, I think everyone has those shows, you just have to learn how to have fun with it.
If you were on death row what would be your last meal?
Philly cheese steak from Pats. Hands down.
Should hipsters be allowed to enter hardcore shows?
Yes. Everyone should be allowed into hardcore shows. If you're there to start fights or be a dick you gotta go, but no one should be turned away for anything but behavior.
What are the next steps for the band?
We're getting ready to leave for a week of shows right now, immediately after that we're gonna go record our new ep, then we're going to be hitting the road again in may.
Before we wrap up, do you have any shout outs or anything that you would like to say?
The Michigan hardcore scene is the best it's ever been right now, do yourself a favor and check out Fisherking, Solid Snake, Ante Up, Out of Step, Smash Your Enemies, King of Monsters, Bearfoot, Traitor, Gateways, Grizzlies, Natural Disasters, Brains Out and Slaves to the Pavement.
