Interview with Destination Morgue!

Genre(s): Metalcore
Location: Cadillac
PSAB: Where does the band name "Destination Morgue" come from exactly? 

DM: The band name is the name of a murder mystery book by James Elroy. I (Evan) have read multiple books by this author and we also have a song named after his book Killer On The Road. 
PSAB: What are your plans for the upcoming new year? 

DM: Our local scene is very dedicated for how small of an area we are from in northern Michigan and all of the main cities are within a couple hours drive.
PSAB: If you had the choice to have a musician featured on one of your tracks. Which musician would that be and why? 

DM: If we could have any musician featured on a track it would be narrowed down to either  Landon from The Plot In You or Alex from Chelsea Grin. Both have very unique vocal style and intense lyrical content.
PSAB: How's the metal scene in your area? 

DM: Our plan for the New year is getting back to playing shows as soon as we enlist a new drummer as well as record New tracks that I have been writing on our time off.

PSAB: What has played the most influence on your music? 
DM: Some of most important influences are bands we listen to and connect with. As we started off as a two piece with electronic drums, bands like The Browning and Isetmyfriendsonfire come to mind when using electro sounds. As we progressed and filled all empty spots in the line up, bands like Miss May I and the always classic Haste The Day played big influence on guitar riffs and song writing.
PSAB: Any shout outs to give? 

DM: Shout outs to anyone who ever listened to us or came to a show and of course Damien at Volunteer Records and Josh Schroeder at Random Awesome Studios. No matter the journey, we all end up in the morgue!

Interview questions answered by Evan Day, guitarist/electronics of the band.

Interview with One Breath Less!

Genre(s): Hardcore/Metal
Location: Wilmington, NC

PSAB: Where does the band name "One Breath Less" come from?

Aaron: There is honestly not an incredible back story behind our name. We knew we wanted to include a number and that we wanted to avoid commonly words used words in metal band names (pretty much anything with "Death" or "Dying" haha). It could be a metaphor for saying too much or not saying enough. Listener's choice.

PSAB: You released a single about two weeks ago titled "Moments Spent Trembling." How has the feedback been for that? What can we expect in the future?

Aaron: The feedback has been wonderful so far! Our friends and fans think that our ominous new sound is definitely a step in the right direction for One Breath Less.

Tanner: You can expect to see tighter pants and more facial hair from us in the future. oh, and "Drag the Lake", our new EP that this fresh single is from.

PSAB: How's the metal scene in Wilmington, NC?

Aaron: We are fortunate enough to have a couple of great venues that constantly book national acts like Whitechapel or Miss May I. On the right night, you can catch 150-200 metalheads standing in line to support their favorite bands. I just wish there was more love for the talented locals in the area!

PSAB: If you could tour with any three bands, which three bands would you choose?

Aaron: I would probably have to go with Despised Icon, Aversion's Crown and The Black Dahlia Murder on this one.

Tanner: Megadeth, "Kerplunk" era Green Day, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

PSAB: Any plans for the new year? New music? Play shows? Write?

Tanner: (chuckles) All of the above. Plus more beard.

Aaron: Yeah, we are releasing the title track off of our upcoming EP, "Drag the Lake", as a lyric video to kick off 2015. We plan on hitting the road in March or April with some new merch and physical copies of the EP to promote its release! Hopefully next year will be big and busy for us.

PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to the readers out there? 

We always have to give a shout out to the 336 crew who always put us on and spread the word. Without you guys' support from our humble beginnings, we would be nothing! You know who you are! A big thank you to Pig Squeals and Breakdowns for giving bands like us the opportunity to increase exposure and for maintaining interest in the success of metal. Every listener counts.
