The U.K has a long tradition of breaking new bands, particularly rock music. Why do you think that is?


The UK has a long history of great rock bands; the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, etc. that everyone grows up listening to, so its guaranteed people will be influenced by them in one way or another. This in turn creates more great rocks bands to influence others. The UK rock music scene, it’s a beautiful thing.



What can fans of your last album expect from your new project? How is it different from your previous work?


Future Architects is the E.P we wanted to make when we were recording We Can Build Astronauts but we were a little too green to materialize all of our ideas. We changed around how we recorded the tracks, recording in a live situation so each track has that feeling that you get when playing together. We’ve also dipped our toes into different genres and influences that fans should be able to hear coming through. I think overall the record is more dynamic and features loads more interesting sounds. I hope everyone loves it as much as we do.



Your latest release shows more introspective lyrics than your first EP. What is your songwriting process? IS there a songwriting process?


In regards to lyrics, they are spawned from whatever is going on in Joes head at the time, be it personal or political. Ryan and I drop in occasionally to fill in the blanks. The music has always been a very collaborative process. Joe will come to us with a lick or riff and we will just jam it out until we have a fully-fledged song.


The music industry has changed a lot in the past 10-15 years. What is your theory on the future state of music?


I think that popular music tastes are cyclic. Grunge is starting to make its way back into the public’s eye, with bands like Darlia and Tigercub heading up the revival, I think soon enough the market will be completely saturated by Grunge. Despite this, there are still loads of bands/musicians out there making all kinds of music due to bedroom producers and the like. Anyone can make any kind of music they like and do it for fairly cheap.




What other new projects do you have on tap for 2015?


We are currently doing a lot of work behind the scenes trying to organize tours in the UK and Europe, nothing is set in stone yet but we are working on it. We are also in talks with a big producer and are looking to head back into the studio toward the end of this year.


Who are your greatest musical influences?


Lostprophets, Biffy Clyro, 65daysofstatic, to name a few



Who would you like to collaborate with, any genre?


Most definitely 65daysofstatic, they make outrageous music and if we could get involved with that I have no doubt we would create something that would crack the earth.
