ROZU INTERVIEW 10.11.19
MM: Which two tracks would you play me to introduce us to your Band
To really show our super fun heavy sides I would say ‘Faceless’ and ‘Anchor’
MM: Can you give us details on tours/festivals for the rest of the year and going into 2020
R:Right not we are focusing on 2020 and finishing our album. We are looking to hit the road hard come late January.
MM: What can we expect from (band name) live
R:Energy. We really make it our goal to give every single performance 100% of our energy and leave it all up there.
MM: Can u tell me what do you like best about touring And worst?
R:The worst part is driving but the best part is just getting out there and seeing new things and meeting new people.
MM: Who would be your ultimate bands to tour with
R:Oceans Ate Alaska, Thousand Below, Dayseeker, and the ultimate being Underoath.
MM: With so many Bands out there..How do you intend to stand out from the others?
R:Great content done consistently over time. We just have to continue to release something new every few months
and continue to work our asses off.
MM: When did you first realise you had such a musical talent and do you remember your first ever performance
I realized it at my first show. I (Tim) was just tour managing a band when they needed a new vocalist, took a big
chance on me, and in the end worked out very well and finally could believe in my abilities to do this professionally.
MM: What's the most memorable concert you've been to (other than your own) and why?
R:Taste of Chaos in 2006 I believe. That was the first time I ever saw Underoath live and it changed me. From that
show on I always wanted to be a frontman in a band and bring that same energy to my stages.
MM: What do you feel has been your biggest accomplishment so far with (Band Name)
R:This album by far. For being our debut album, we have really put ourselves through the ringer and it truly is our best
work and we have really found our sound for years to come with Rozu.
MM: Which are your Two favourite albums of all time and what they have meant to you personally
R:Always is the hardest question. Underoath’s ‘Define the Great Line’ is for sure my favourite album of all time. I
connected with that album on such a personal level and really developed my scream trying to mimic Spencer. The
other one would have to be Chiodos’ ‘Bone Palace’ because simply it never gets old to me and is in a constant
rotation on commutes.
MM: Where would you like to see yourselfs in 5 years time ?
R:Hopefully still out here grinding away and creating art with my best friends.
MM: Four words to describe Rozu
R:Aggressive, Passionate, Sad, and Hope
MM: Can you tell me why we should check out Rozu
R: I feel like the easiest way to put it is that yes, we are very heavy but, we put so much emotion into every
song that there just might be a little something for everyone within our music.
