LONDON to the USA
Thank you for being part of our zine. Tell us more about your beginnings in the industry!
All three of us learned instruments from an early age and played in rock bands prior to Everafter. We started this band in Autumn 2010 and spent the first few years gigging and crafting our set. In Summer 2013 we signed with indie label Hummdrumm Records and then headed into the studio in October to record our debut album ‘Everything Is One’.
Where are you located now and where are you originally from?
We were all born and raised in London, UK and are still based here.
Goals for 2019 and beyond?
Well we’ve just released our second album titled ‘Remember’, via Bandcamp, so we’re promoting the album and shows are getting booked for 2020. Goals are to get more exposure, build the fanbase and go on tour…
What have been the specific challenges in your career so far? What have been the greatest achievements so far?
After we recorded the first album our old drummer moved out of London down to the south coast and it became increasingly difficult for him to commit. Last year we had to ask another old friend of ours to step in on drums. Things also went quite slow for us between 2015 – 2018.
Achievements have been recording 2 studio albums now (first one was recorded with the late Grammy nominated Black Sabbath/Thin Lizzy producer Chris Tsangarides), playing to the inmates at Wormwood Scrubs prison and playing at the 2018 UK Adult Producer Awards with UK adult film star Michelle Thorne.
Where can our readers catch up with you out there soon?
We always post updates on our Facebook page and both our albums are now available for download on our Bandcamp page.
Please answer the following: "If my fans really knew us, they would know that... "
If our fans really knew us, they would know that as well as rocking everybody out, all three of love movies!... We are very committed and passionate about our career but at the same time we are easy going guys with silly British senses of humour.
Who are your top inspirations?
Green Day, Metallica and Nirvana.
Having accomplished so much in your career, are there more dreams you hope to conquer?
We definitely hope to conquer other territories (USA would be awesome) and we intend to record more albums further down the line.
Any words of wisdom for your fans out there?
Listen to your heart with all life choices, your heart will never betray you.
