Evans Blue are an Canadian hard rock band who have just released their latest album Graveyard of Empires this year and it’s a cracker of an album. I talk to Parker from the band to find out more and why you need to hear this band.
1. Are you happy to response to the new album?
Definitely.. It’s been very awesome to see the fans singing to the new material. You never really know how it’s gonna go over live.. I mean everyone wants to hear the favorites at a concert, and we do those too.. But to see them singing every word to the new record is killer!
2. How has the internet and social media helped you as a band?
I think if you use it right, it can very well be your lifeline. Fans expect you to be in arms reach these days, and why shouldn’t they? They keep you going and deserve that respect. Everything is instantaneous these days.. It’s about ‘right now’.
3. How has traditional media and radio responded to the album?
It’s doing very well in the markets that spin it.
4. What have you learned from being in the music industry from when you started those years back?
Well it’s evolution to me.. I mean, things will always change and you have to evolve to stay alive. Everything I thought I knew before, changed.. I think it’s key to use what works but also keep in mind there are no rules.
5. What advice could you give to some one who wants to make a career in music?
Do it cause you love it.. Not because you want to be rich or even for glory. Make music you believe in and you will always be proud of it.
6. What has been your favorite band to tour with?
It’s always been great to share the stage with Sevendust. I’m a big fan and couldn’t better group of guys.
7. Has their been anybody you wanna work with that you haven’t worked with yet?
For sure.. I’d love to write or collaborate with a lot of people. For fun or to see what it becomes.. From Eminem to Jason Aldean to 10 Years..
8. If you could have any body in a video clip who would it be?
Hmm that’s tough. Lets go with Zack De La Rocha… Because we made a song together.
9. Have you had much response from overseas fans (outside of Canada and America) regarding your music?
We get a ton of awesome feedback from other countries! Really hoping to get out there soon.
10. What is next for the band?
Spread the word and have a blast playing our music to people.
