Clyro and Boxer Rebellion @ Junction, Cambridge, October,
was a crazy night, my first interview after spending the summer
as Blast reporter and I got slight nerves again. I walked
to the amazing Junction and got through and went straight
backstage Im so lucky, however the security said
it would be best if I had the interview after the band's set.
So I got myself a great space at the front and was ready for
an eventful night.
The support bands were great and really got the atmosphere
going and as the night went on the crowd got bigger. Biffy
entered the stage with an amazing start and the crowd went
wild. Im sure Ive used this phrase before but
i'll say it again, "If you cant handle the mosh
get out of the pit" and I really had to, it was heavy
and I got scared! But Biffy managed to make the night fantastic
and really kept everyone entertained. There was such a mixture
of people there from male to female to 14-25+ the band played
a mixture of songs from past and the present album and all
went well with the night.
Towards the end of the evening I grabbed my recording equipment
and headed back stage were I was greeted by the support band's
manager. I really liked this band and they made a great impact
to the audience and recently just being signed meant that
they were ready to rock the stage with their awesome music.
We sat in their tour bus and began the interview; it went
a little something like this
do you think that gig went?
really enjoyed it, I thought it went well, some of them seemed
to know our stuff which is cool, I thought it was really good
because its more of our kind of audience and I thought
it was a great way to get more fans.
you definitely played a great set
I mean some of the songs were up and down but I think some
of the songs that I think maybe didnt get the same response
because the other songs are songs that you have to hear a
couple more times but no I thought it was really good.
piano piece was really nice, how is the touring going with
tonight was the first gig with them, we met all the guys today
and they are extremely nice guys and weve all had the
same producer which is weird but great, and our producer has
done our album and all of Biffys - so its great.
do you think the tour's going to go with Biffy?
Biffy and hearing Biffy has made me so excited. If the crowd
is going to be like this every night then Im so exited.
There a great band to be with and when someone loves their
music as much as they do its amazing.
advice would you give to bands trying to make it?
but also confidence in what your doing and have confidence
in your music and just be really patient.
a signed band yes?
we're a signed band, we signed our major deal in April to
wish you guys the very best, good luck with the tour.
how it went, all very good and I wish these guys the very
best and hope they achieve everything they want to achieve.
They're great guys and if you can make it to one of their
shows with Biffy I would truly recommend!
