Q & A: EVERYDAY DOGS


Everyday Dogs talk Audioslave, Halloween and changing direction


#newmusic #rock


PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF FOR US WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH YOU AND YOUR MUSIC AND TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF.


Hey this is Julian from Everyday Dogs. We’re a hard rock band from Athens, Georgia


TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR NEW SINGLE?


On October 23rd we’ll be releasing a single for the first time in over a year. This will be the first of about 6 songs we’ve been working on that will eventually be in an EP. The song is called Black Fire and is pretty spooky (hence the Halloween season release). But this song is the first step in a new direction we have going for the band in a heavier direction.


WHAT INSPIRED THE ALBUM OR SINGLE?


My brother Jesse came to the band with a crazy idea for a song about vampires (after reading Bram Stoker’s Dracula) and we were all about it. From there we matched the subject with some new riffs that supported the spooky theme.


CAN YOU SUM UP THE ALBUM IN A FEW WORDS?


It’s diabolical


WHAT RECORD CHANGED YOUR LIFE AND WHY?


The self-titled Audioslave album had a huge impact on me. When I was first starting to sing a few years ago, that album gave me something to strive towards. So whenever I would get in the car I would blast that album and scream my lungs out to try and figure out what Chris Cornell was doing.


DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE MUSIC VIDEO FILMED BY YOUR BAND OR ANOTHER ARTIST?


We only have made one official music video and it is currently still in the works so it’s still a mystery as of now. As for other artists music videos, I really love One Night Only’s- 'Say you don’t want it.' It’s a great story of 2 people falling in love doing weird things, but at the very end it shows that they were really dogs the whole time. Super sweet and Emma Watson is in it.


WHAT WOULD WE FIND YOU DOING WHEN YOU'RE NOT MAKING MUSIC?
