MM: Can you tell us about your Band and who your biggest influences are?
DD:Well, I’ve been calling myself a Theater Rock band but it might be more like a Dark Fantasy Rock band. Genres are weird. I want to make meaningful lyrics that actually help someone understand more about life. Some big influences are The Used, Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, The Killers.. Phil Collins, Queen, Bowie, Danny Elfman.
MM: Where do you draw your inspirations and ideas from
DD:When Im doing whatever activity during the day I just instinctively make a beat to it so I use beats from my voice notes. I listen to great songs and start with similar chord progressions. The rest of the song kinda writes itself if I listen to it enough times!
MM: What would you say is your Bands favourite song ?
DD:I’ve said Imogen Heap. It kinda changes. Maybe Please Please Please let me get what I want by the Smiths.
MM: Plans tour and festival wise for 2020
DD:That’s the hope!
MM: What can we expect from (Band Name) live
DD:You can expect a hyper-theatrical in your face performance. I try to be as immersive as I can with the audience. You can expect to go into character with me.
MM: What do you like best and worst about touring
DD:The obvious best part is connecting with fans who come out through performance and talking to them. You get more time to think on the road so thats good. But the health habits are worse because you somehow end up eating worse and getting worse sleep.
MM: Which three Bands would be your ultimate touring buddies
DD:IDKHOW. Twenty one pilots. Yungblud.
MM: What's the most memorable concert you've been to (other than your own) and why
DDlSeeing the Used. I’m just a superfan. I kept trying to make eye contact with him.
MM: What do you feel has been your biggest accomplishment so far with music.
It’s been connecting with more fans through the songs and socials. It shows it’s growing and it makes it worthwhile to know I can help.
MM: Which are your Two favourite Albums of all time
DD:Lies for the Liars and American Idiot.
MM: Can you remember the first time you ever played live and how it felt to have people watching you?
DD:Yes, it was humiliating. We got practically booed off the stage, AND, I messed up the opening song so bad that we stopped and restarted AND my singer singled me out for it!
MM: Growing up which Bands posters did you have on your bedroom wall.
DD:Oh man I think there might have been a 311 one…
MM - Who do you think influenced the world of Metal / Rock more than any other person
DD:Metallica, and Avenged Sevenfold.
MM - What's the most important thing to the band right now?
DD:Standing for something consistently, making the best music, and holding anyones hand who feels rejected.
MM:If you could do a cover of any song which one would it be and why?
DD:Umbrella Beach by Owl City cause there are enormous memories associated with it.
MM: Tell us why we should buy and listen to your Band
DD:Because you will be missing out on something so precious and meaningful !
MM: Four words to describe (band Name)
DD:Twisted. Substantial. Theatric. Beautiful.
MM:Final Words for your fans and our readers
DD:THANKS FOR LISTENING TO ME TALK
