An Interview with Vic Fuentes of Pierce the Veil

Formed in 2006, Pierce The Veil quietly built up a fanbase with their first two albums, before suddenly bursting into the limelight with their third release, Collide with the Sky. Reaching #12 on the Billboard Top 200 and giving the band their first Gold-certified single in “King For A Day (ft. Kellin Quinn)”, the band headlined Warped Tour 2015 and performed sold-out tours all year. In order to keep up with their success, Pierce The Veil was determined to deliver a follow-up album that exceeded everyone’s expectations. Misadventures did just that, receiving critical acclaim and being the band’s best-performing album so far. We had a chance to ask the band about their evolving sound, Comic Con, and being in Rock Band VR. Read more

An Interview with Jack Metcalfe and The Hunna!

A relatively new band, The Hunna was formed fewer than two years ago in October 2015. Not the kind of band to rest, they sold out a headlining UK tour right after releasing their first single, “Bonfire”. Announcing a debut album for summer 2016, less than a year after formation, paid off, as 100 reached #13 on the UK Official Charts and became a huge success on Spotify. Endlessly touring, the band has now sold out four consecutive UK tours and begun to tour internationally. Their third single, “You & Me”, reaching #28 on the US Alternative Songs chart, fueling sold-out shows in America. We talked to the band about their formation, life on the road, and even virtual reality. Read more

An Interview with Taylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless

Formed in 2009, The Pretty Reckless has been a force to be reckoned with since releasing their debut album, Light Me Up, in 2010. Focusing on deep lyrics that show into the band’s soul has earned them a passionate and ever-growing fanbase, leading to their sophomore album, Going to Hell, debuting in the Top 5 of the Billboard Top 200, later going on to feature three chart-topping singles. “Heaven Knows”, off Going to Hell, was 2014’s most successful Mainstream Rock single, spending 18 weeks in the top spot. After touring for two straight years, the band immediately began work on their third album, Who You Selling For. With songs showcasing a range of sonic emotions, Who You Selling For was met with critical and commercial success and has led to a string of sold out shows and high profile festival appearances. We asked lead singer Taylor Momsen to talk about musical influences, touring, and an enduring love of sleep. Read more
