Days To Come – Interview
Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)
Q: What type of artist are you?
A: Brandon – We’re continually developing and working towards what “Days To Come” sounds like, but I want to be able to say that we have pop styled, catchy vocal melodies layered with intricate music supporting it. Basically pop-prog.
Q: Tell us the brief history of yourself.
A: Justin – Days To Come officially formed in 2014. I met Brandon at a local music store one afternoon before a gig and we hit it off pretty quickly. Jalen joined us in early 2018. We’ve had a few lineup changes over the years but we feel pretty confident in the team we currently have.
Q: Who are your musical and non musical influences?
A: Brandon – Musical influences: Steve Vai, Devin Townsend, Ashe O’hara, and Plini. Non musical influences: I dunno, Kirby?
Q: What are your dreams and goals?
A: Jalen – I would love to be able to provide for myself and my family through playing music.
Q: Who writes your songs? What are they about?
A: Justin – Typically, Brandon and I will get together with a few acoustic guitars and work out the skeleton of the song. I’ll either have lyrics already written or will write some to go with the music. Sometimes they come really quickly and other times they’ll take weeks to finish.
The lyrics are typically about the struggle of choice and doing the right thing in any given situation. Lyrically, I seem to continue to run back to that theme. I enjoy not necessarily having a definitive resolution in the story of the lyrics. I feel like this gives the listener the freedom to come up with his or her own conclusion and it’ll make the song more personal for them.
Q: How do you promote your band and shows?
A: Justin – We’re pretty active on social media (@daystocomemusic). It’s such a wonderful tool to engage with your fans and continue to build those relationships. We have a mailing list and exclusive Facebook group for our core supporters.
We’ve recently started doing a lot of giveaways. This has been a great way to engage with our fanbase, give them free stuff, and introduce ourselves to new people.
Q: What do you think about downloading music online?
A: Jalen – If it lets us reach more people, in fine with it.
Q: What song do you wish you’d written and why?
A: Brandon – Death Of Music by Devin Townsend. It’s such an emotional roller coaster. It’s practically a linear climb to its own mini orchestra. The vocals are haunting and the music backing it up is mesmerizing.
Q: What are some of your pet peeves?
A: Jalen – People not being on time *cough* Justin *cough*.
Q: What is your proudest moment in music?
A: Justin – One of my proudest moments with Days was our very first show back in 2014. We had been working on the material for months and the feelings I had performing in my first “real band” are some that I’ll never forget. It’ll always be a great memory.
Q: So what are you working on at the moment?
A: Brandon – We’re excited to release and promote our new single Siren (out January 25th). We’re currently in the studio tracking our next single (tentative release date in March). We’ve got a few tours lined up and we’re ready for a big 2019.
Q: Tell us about your next shows and why we should be there.
A: Jalen – We always strive to give 110% and we hope the audience feels all of the energy we bring. We’re doing a mini tour in Florida in February with our friends in 7 Stone Riot and House Of Curses. It’s gonna be a great time connecting with them and seeing our fans on the road.
