Joel Answers my questions
1.how did the band form?
The ashes of tenpin, and so many ways,…
basically these two bands played a show togteher once, and i (joel) saw daz
singing for so many ways, i approached him after the show, saying i wanted
to start another band, and he was super keen, so we started writing,…
then karl and sean(both ex-tenpin) heard the stuff we were doing and
thought it was cool, so they were in!!!
2.who are your major influnces?
Ummm, definitely the juliana thoery, and
saves the day. Sean and karl listen to alot of 311, and incubus… and we
can’t helped but be inspired by glassjaw as a whole. Not in a musical
influence way, we don’t write anything like them, but listening to them
just makes you wanna be in a band!

Rock, derived from a punk sort of
background… but still Rock
5. where do you think you will be in 10 years?

7. what made you want to go out and play music?

9. who would most like to record a song with?
woah, thats a weird question,
since i had this dream last night, where we did like this benifit single
for some cause, and we were playing the music, and we had guest appearences
from chris(saves the day) daryl(glassjaw) Rob(joshwinsagain) and this girl
that we met a little while ago who was an amazing
songwriter/singer/guiatist!!, so i think that song would be pretty rad!!!

Yeah, we’re going to have an
album out during summer, we’re going into the studio late october for 6
weeks, can’t wait!!!
thanks for your time
