Bit late posting this up…but what the hell! Had a rad old time at Slam Dunk this year, Ben “The Dunk” Ray (the man behind the festival) exceeded himself once more and brought an array of huge names and (more importantly in my eyes) some of the most exciting newcomers in alternative music to the stages. From PVRIS to Roam, While She Sleeps to Architects, Lower Than Atlantis, Bury Tomorrow, Knuckle Puck, As It Is, Rob Lynch, SHVPES, Set It Off, Don Broco and everyone in between…it truly was a weekend of awesomeness!!
I went along with Monster Energy and Kerrang! Radio to do some interviews and have a giggle. Now, I just hate doing interviews at festivals…the whole vibe is wrong…the bands have like an hour to do 30 interviews with 30 different journalists who are all going to ask:
1) How are you?
2) What’s it like playing Slam Dunk?
3) How was the recording process for you?
4) So what’s next for you guys?
*SHOOTS SELF IN HEAD*
Honestly, does anybody care!? Nooope!! I’d much rather find out what Deez Nuts think about Disney, or find out that PVRIS almost exclusively use Air B&B when touring…you know, ACTUAL LIFE STUFF.
So this is what I did…
