Shadow People – Interview
Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)
PD: What type of artist are you?
SP: A shitty one.
PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.
SP: It was a warm hot night in the winter of 2013 in New York City where I attended Harvard. I remember that night specifically as I was painting a portrait twisting my mustache reminiscing old romance. And I did a lot of meth and stayed up for weeks and saw Shadow People. So I named the band that and it’s completely a drug reference.
PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
SP: A lot of screamo, sludge, punk bands.
EyehateGod, Portraits of Past, 400 years, Crowbar, Electric Wizard, ISIS, The Germs, Void, The Chariot, Violent Femmes, Saetia, to name a few.
PD: What are your dreams and goals?
SP: I guess the fuckin apocalypse. I’ve always looked forward to that. Other than that, I guess tour around the country for months out of the year.
PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?
SP: I write the lyrics. My names Matt. This EP is mainly about bullshit social norms and watching the fuckin world burn. Giving up the desire to live with fake motherfuckers.
PD: How do you promote your band and shows?
PD: What do you think about downloading music online?
SP: I think it’s fucking amazing and I hope people steal our music <3
PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?
SP: I would never wish I wrote someone else’s songs.
PD: What are some of your pet peeves?
SP: The word pet peeve is a pet peeve.
PD: What is your proudest moment in music?
SP: I’m not proud of what I do.
PD: So what are you working on at the moment?
SP: New songs for our new EP.
PD: What music have you available online and where can we buy it from?
