Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life are pleased to bring you an interview with multi-faceted emo/rock/metal band, Wishing Wolf.
1. How did you get started as a band?
The band actually started as a solo project of Danny Ray Holmes, after taking inspiration from such artists as The Used and My Chemical Romance he decided to make Wishing Wolf a full band project. The band all came together through a social media post however Danny, Bessie and Moodie all met through college.
2. How would you describe your sound?
We would all say we are directly inspired by Mid 2000’s emo bands such as Taking Back Sunday, The Used and My Chemical Romance, having said this we do all like to add other genres to the mix for example Metal, Prog Rock, Pop Punk and pretty much whatever is on our minds at the time of songwriting.
3. What bands/artists would you say inspired you?
The Used. Polyphia, Lydia, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance.
4. Has the rise of YouTube & music streaming helped or hindered you as a band?
I’d say in our case it has definitely helped us. Most of the band have experience with social media promotion anyway so promoting the band came natural. Having said this with so many amazing bands in the scene it can be quite difficult to stand out amongst the rest.
5. What do you enjoy doing when you’re not making music?
Gaming, photography, skating.
6. What are your future plans musically? Tours?
Musically Danny and Bessie have been working on something new, we think its something that’s really going to set as apart in the scene. In terms of tours we may have something in the works for late august. so keep your eyes open!
