Q & A: NEXT STOP OLYMPUS







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


We are 2/5 of Next Stop Olympus, Conor (Vocals) and Matt (Bass).


Conor: We are a metalcore/post-hardcore/rock ’n’ roll band from Salisbury and we are trying to get the style of music we enjoy playing to as many ears as possible!


TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR NEW ALBUM OR SINGLE?


Our new EP ‘Heart, Mind & Hell’ came out on 9th April, it has 5 tracks on which as a whole tell a story of someones downfall, from betrayal then anger to turning to alcohol and despair about the situation to finally just giving up.


WHAT INSPIRED THE ALBUM OR SINGLE?


All the lyrics are based on different situations we’ve been through personally and it wasn’t until we had written some of the songs that it comes together as a story so we chose the song order based on that.


CAN YOU SUM UP THE ALBUM IN A FEW WORDS?


It’s a very personal EP which all we poured a lot of ourselves into in a way we haven’t before and it’s a nice blend on heavy metal core / post hardcore with big rock ’n’ roll chorus’.


WHAT RECORD CHANGED YOUR LIFE AND WHY?


Matt: Asking Alexandria - Reckless and relentless just because after hearing that album was where I became really passionate about music.
