Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)
PD: What type of artist are you?
TWUFTM: They Watch Us From The Moon is a Psychedelic Space Doom Metal Project.
We fit firmly in the Doom, Stoner, Sludge genre of Metal. But we call
it Cosmic Doom Opera.
PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.
TWUFTM: Band formed in 2017. First EP Moon Doom Released March 2020 on
Bandcamp. Several articles were done on us in 2020 in high profile
music pages such as this..
Entered at number 30 on the Doom Charts March 2020.
“They Watch Us From The Moon is now set to release a new single
“Return To Earth” 12/10 off of the upcoming Album Due in the spring.
Now booking dates for spring and summer.
PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
TWUFTM: First saw Sleep and played shows with Kyuss and Clutch in the 90’s. I
was hooked on it since. I love Stoner and Doom Metal, but I cut my
teeth in the punk rock scene of the 80’s and 90’s.
PD: What are your dreams and goals
TWUFTM: To tour the world and play music.
PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?
TWUFTM: Shane Thirteen is the primary song writer. Everyone in the band
contributes to the final product. The band follows a concept that
there is an evil alien that watches us from the moon. The band concept
follows the idea that the alien must be stopped.
PD: How do you promote your band and shows?
TWUFTM: For home town and regional shows we plaster the area with posters as
much as we can. We also utilize social media and exploit that as much
as we can. You can follow us at..
PD: What do you think about downloading music online?
TWUFTM: I think when a band or artist offers their work for free then that is
great. But stealing is still wrong.
PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?
TWUFTM: Oh I wish I had wrote Ziggy Stardust. This was the first song I ever
heard that was about a space alien. I loved it and fell in love with
the work of David Bowie. I love the whole album to this day. From
there I got way into Glam Rock.
PD: What are some of your pet peeves?
TWUFTM: I wish people now days would take live music more seriously. People
are more apt to stay home and play video games than go out and see
PD: What is your proudest moment in music?
TWUFTM: Our proudest moment was being on the Doom Charts. We had no idea we
had that kind of impact on our first release.
PD: So what are you working on at the moment?
TWUFTM: Right now we are working on our first full length album. The first
single “Return To Earth will be released on 12/10.. We are also in
pre-production for videos. This release cycle will also see a reboot
of our comic under the same title.
PD: What music have you available online and where can we buy it from?
TWUFTM: Moon Doom is currently available at..
Follow us on bandcamp to hear Return To Earth 12/10/21!!!
