What can the WA Taste of Chaos crowd expect when you hit the stage?
Who knows what to expect, we don't know ourselves what's instore!! Playing fast melodic hardcore is always a bit of a challenge, especially in front of a festival size crowd! Expect heavy, melodic, energetic music and four guys having the time of their short lives entertaining the W.A home town.
Taste of Chaos has a pretty impressive line-up. Who are you most excited about sharing the stage with?
Definately Thursday and Anti Flag are bands that really inspire us, but a line up this insane we couldn't possibly narrow it down to just two bands. It's a real honour to be playing with Taking Back Sunday and Parkway Drive. We look up to those guys.
Tell us about the local Perth punk scene that you are part of.
Perth punk and hardcore scene is getting bigger and bigger all the time. In our last 3 years as a band we have seen and played with some really killer punk/hardcore & metal bands and we are proud to be doing it for our isolated town of Perth and W.A.
What's the best thing about being in The Restless Words?
Doing what ya love and gigging with your best mates. Who could ask for more?
...and the worst?
No real worsts yet!! Coming up with new material can be a challenge but our song writing is improving all the time!
What's on the cards for the future?
We have an E.p set for release very soon, we are currently chasing up labels and gearing up for release shows and wanting to tour early 2007 if possible. We'll definately have to wait and see, who knows what the future holds!!
Australian music is...
Awesome! For such a small country, aussie music always manages be up there with the best. I hope that continues.
