Interview: Alex Kerns from Lemuria

A decade in the making, Lemuria is a band from Buffalo, NY that pumps out album after 7″ after album of emotionally charged indie-rock/pop music. Just over a year ago, Lemuria released their newest album, The Distance Is So Bigand followed it with nearly nonstop touring of the US, Asia, the UK and Australia. Their most recent US tour started off with The Menzingers, Cayetana and PUP. By the time the band got to Ferndale, Michigan, they were finishing out their run playing with Kind Of Like Spitting – a band form Portland, Oregon that happened to have taken Lemuria out on tour back in 2006.

I got to sit down with Lemuria’s drummer/vocalist, Alex Kerns, before their show at the Loving Touch in Ferndale on July 12th. Read More…

VIDEO PREMIERE: Tycho – Artist Feature

You might disagree, but Scott Hansen, better known by Tycho, is in our opinion quite the interesting musician. We had the chance to sit down with him before his show at The Crofoot back in April. Also, this video will definitely prep you or fill the empty spot left in your head that’s dedicated for Electric Forest this weekend.

Interview – Jon Simmons of Balance and Composure

2013 has been a busy year for the Doylestown, Pennsylvania natives in Balance and Composure. They’re in the spotlight of their scene, harnessing an honest and haunting sound that is hard to come by in today’s leading rock artists. Their newest full-length album, The Things We Think We’re Missing, reached number 51 on the Billboard charts when it was released in September, and that was followed up with a couple of tours of the country. They just finished a tour with another band from Pennsylvania called Title Fight, and they are heading towards the end of their run opening up for Coheed and Cambria. Before they opened up for Coheed in Grand Rapids on 10/26, I was able to sit down with their front man, Jon Simmons, to discuss some tour stories, the idea of emo music, their relationship with their producer Will Yip, Halloween and Breaking Bad.
