We hope to achieve what those who have come before us have achieved. The legacy they have created, the mark they have left on Rock music and the world. Generation after generation people have been inspired to continue playing and enjoying rock music and the culture that comes with it. A friend of ours recently posted a cover of the solo from our song Promised Land, and it’s hard to describe how happy that made us. Creating something that will inspire others to pick up an instrument and continue the Rock legacy, that’s what we want to achieve.
We’ve always said amongst ourselves how awesome it would be if we could work on a song or even an album with Rick Rubin, but I guess that’s a given, the man's a genius. Really we wouldn’t say no if we had the opportunity to work with any single one of our musical heroes, Guns and Roses, AC/DC, Nick Jonas.
Don’t forget what it is you’re doing. It’s very easy for bands or artists to get caught up in their scene either just hanging out all the time or playing the part and not actually creating any music. You’ve got to practice, you’ve got to write songs, you have to work hard but if it’s truly what you want to do you’ll love every second of it.
Simply being in the music industry is a success. It’s something that we sometimes take for granted. If you’re a creative person you just can’t live a monotonous life, it’ll kill you. Being active in the music industry gives you a lifestyle where you live day to day, there’s always something new to work on, new people to meet, new places to go. In that sense, I guess you could say to be successful in this industry is to be active.
At the moment we’re taking things as they come. We’re in a position where there are a lot of great opportunities just waiting around the corner, and we honestly don’t know where we will be months from now. For now we’ve got a few gigs lined up but we’re also focusing on writing some more material.
To play every major rock/metal festival in the world. To sell out Wembley twice, though once would be good too. To open for the bands that we idolise. Hearing one of our songs played on a major radio station was on our Bucket List until we recently got to strike it off!
