EVERY HOUR KILLS INTERVIEW
Can you describe Doug Cook’s mad scientist glorious bearded genius visions he had for the Almost Human video?
Every Hour Kills - I wish I could but I imagine the inside of Doug's brain like some kind of bad 70s acid trip. Nonetheless you can see the results for yourselves and I think the video turned out awesome! Doug is a great guy and a super hard working old drill sergeant.
You did a few collaborations on your album, who did you collaborate with and what did they bring to the music of Every Hour Kills?
Every Hour Kills - Yeah we were lucky enough to get in touch with a few producers I really respect, as well as some friends in other bands etc. They each brought their own little twists and tweaks to make the songs that little bit better, like a great collab should. They didn't totally change anything major; just a bit of outside perspective to level things up for that final push!
When you collaborate you often learn new things musically from the collaboration, what did you learn?
Every Hour Kills - Definitely, I'm constantly learning with each new song and each new production. I don't know that I can name anything specific. You should always be trying to top yourself. You have to set your standards really high I think; aim for the best thing out there and try and match it. There's no difference between them and you, just the amount of work you put in really innit.
You did 6 instrumental tracks on your album, with vocals you can tell a story. How did you manage to paint a wonderful musical picture and what story does the music tell in these instrumentals?
Every Hour Kills - I think they are interesting for the music geeks and musicians like me out there, that's why we included them! There's a ton going on in the instrumentals, sometimes hundreds of tracks of synths and things like that, they are easy to miss when you listen to the full song with the vocals.
You are a relatively new band, what hopes for the future do you have for Every Hour Kills?
Every Hour Kills - The same as any band really: make better music, play bigger shows, have fun, get a Fleshlight sponsorship.
You are not really a road dog type of band but you all have done the touring thing before, what do you enjoy and what do you hate about touring?
Every Hour Kills - Personally I hate a lot of things about it, I like playing good shows but the tours I've been on that has been about 5% of the experience. There are good things too of course, I don't want to be all negative Nancy over here.
We all have dreams and some people are lucky enough to live those dreams, so what do you all dream about when you lay your head to sleep and what is the most bizarre dream you have ever had?
Every Hour Kills - I imagine we all dream about lasagna. I once had a bizarre dream where I fucked a lasagna and everyone watched.
Sacha I notice you have a rather wicked sense of humour as well as being a great musician, so tell us a joke
Every Hour Kills - Bass Players.
As a fellow musician there are elements we work hard on that in a way we hope get noticed in our music, what elements do you hope people pick up on in the music of Every Hour Kills?
Every Hour Kills - I hope people notice the goat bleating hidden in every track.
OK so Every Hour Kills decide to cover a song, what is the most obscure track you would cover and what spin would Every Hour Kills put on the song?
Every Hour Kills - We're already doing a cover, so stay tuned, neeheeheeeeee
You all have wonderful music histories, so who approached who and what lessons have you learned from previous bands that won’t happen in Every Hour Kills?
Every Hour Kills - Rob approached me actually; we've always wanted to do something together and it was finally time. We've learned not to take things too seriously or go into too much debt.
So I’m learning a new language, invent a new one for me to learn and teach me a couple of words from this language now please.
Every Hour Kills - This question is above my pay grade.
Thank you so much for giving Vampire Freaks this interview, is there anything you would like to add?
Every Hour Kills - Keep your sticks on the ice and your dicks somewhere nice!
