Fathom Farewell 25/06/23
MM: Can you tell us about your Band and whos your biggest influences
We are a crushing tidal wave of love and affection. Aggressive, high energy, high intensity,
metal and rock music with a positive message about people and the earth.
MM: Where do you draw your inspirations and ideas from
Our experiences and the way we perceive the world around us. The Planet and people and the
consequences of mistreating the planet and/or ourselves. We as a species can do better and it
gets us all fired up.
MM: What would you say is your Bands favourite song ?
Not sure if you mean one of our songs or someone else’s but our favorite song of ours is either
our latest single “Vitriol” or one of our upcoming releases. Very hard to say what our favorite
song of someone else’s is given that we just all have very different music tastes that blend
together for what we write. Alex’s favorite band is A Perfect Circle. Dustin’s is Meshuggah. EJ’s
is Motley Crue. Alicia’s is All That Remains. So with such different music tastes picking one
song would be near impossible.
MM: Plans tour and festival wise for 2023
Well honestly, last winter we tried submitting to fests given that we have a very large regional
draw and a great deal of show and tour history. However, our online numbers weren’t
currently high enough at the time to get us onto the caliber of fest we were looking to play. So
this summer and fall we got some upcoming releases as well as our latest song “Vitriol” we will
be relentlessly pushing in order to raise our online numbers. Our spotify listeners already
increased by double within a week of dropping this song so we are very hopeful it’ll be a
different result this winter when we submit. That said, we do have 2 awesome shows this
Summer. Performing at the Bushwick House in Brooklyn NY for PRDGMS Album release
featuring Gannon, Null and What We Owe on July 16 th . The 2 nd show is a festival in Ashby MA at
the Fitchburg Rod and Gun Club called The Big Kahuna and the lineup is a ton of our New
England friends on August 5 th . We are super stoked for both.
MM: What can we expect from (Band Name) live
What you hear on the album plus a high energy, high intensity performance that will pulse
through the venue and into your veins.
MM: What do you like best and worst abt touring
We absolutely love meeting new people and seeing new places. We absolutely do not love
rising gas prices and inflation.
MM: Which three Bands would be your ultimate touring buddies
Nothing More, Sevendust and Currents.
MM: Whats the most memorable concert you've been to (other than your own)
I guess I’ll take this one (Alex). I got to see A Perfect Circle back in 2018 when they were touring
Eat the Elephant and the performance and stage setup were so spectacular. They also have a
strict not video policy so literally no one had their phones out in front of my face and it was
MM: What do you feel has been your biggest accomplishment so far with
Performing 4 times on the MA date of Warped Tour and opening Sevendusts 20 year
anniversary in the Worcester Palladium main room were some of our most integral moments as
a band but our biggest accomplishment is packing 400 people into the Worcester Palladium
upstairs for our first ever headliner there.
MM: Which are your Two favourite Albums of all time
Mer De Noms by A Perfect Circle and Meteora by Linkin Park
MM: Can you remember the first time you ever played live and how it felt to have
people watching you?
Yes. I was very nervous before hopping onstage but the second we started playing I felt
amazing and the show went great. Not counting the hundreds of open mics before that. First
open mic I was a mess.
MM: Growing up which Bands posters did you have on your bedroom wall.
Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, A Perfect Circle, Incubus, Nine Inch Nails
MM - Who do you think influenced the world of Metal / Rock more than any other
Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington for sure. Going way back Ozzy Osbourne for sure as
MM - What's the most important thing to the band right now?
Expanding our reach, signing a record deal, solidifying a great agent, touring the world.
MM:If you could do a cover of any song which one would it be and why?
That’s a tough one because we’ve covered many songs over the years just for fun. There are
only a few bands we all collectively love and I’d say System of a Down is one of those. We’ve
previously done Prison Song and Chop Suey. Personally would love to tackle I-E-A-I-A-I-O,
Sugar, X, Jet Pilot or Science.
MM: Tell us why we should buy and listen to your Band
We have worked at what we do for a very long time and will not disappoint. We feel we bring
something new to the genre table and are a worthy addition to any music fan’s playlist.
MM: Four words to describe your band
Watery Grave (or) Comprehending Goodbye
Final Words for your fans and our readers
We just dropped a new single a week ago called “Vitriol” and it would absolutely mean the
world to us if you’d go listen to it on your chosen streaming platform and give us a follow if you
dig it. LOVE YOU.
