Eric: to start this off, tell me the names of the members, and what they each play
Conor: well Nathan is vocals, Dave is guitar, Josh is guitar, Conor is drums and Tyler is bass
Eric: so were are you guys from?
Conor: Littleton, CO straight out of Denver coast?
Eric: hehe, awesome
Eric: so, how did Tryst form, and were did the name Tryst come from?
Conor: Well, I would say Tryst started in the Spring of 2003 as Suburban Heartache, We played a few shows and decided we didn’t like our style, name or anything. So we took a few months off, regrouped with all new songs and style and came up with the name Tryst. Tryst means the secret meeting between two lovers like Romeo and Juliet. We have been Tryst for about 6 months now and keep progressing everyday.
Eric: so how did you guys meet and start playing as suburban heartache?
Conor: Well, we all go to the same high school so we pretty much are with each other all the time. Josh and Dave started playing together and decided they wanted to form a band, so they got the Brigman brothers, Nathan and Tyler. So they were set all but without a drummer. They went through about 4 different drummers before they actually picked a drummer. ThatÃƒ¯Ã‚¿Ã‚½s where Conor comes in to fill the gap they’ve been missing.
Eric: so, under what genre of music would you put yourselves in?
Conor: You know thatÃƒ¯Ã‚¿Ã‚½s a toughy because we could classify our selves as so many different types of music. But if I would have to pick one it would probably under The screamo genre.
Eric: so, do you guys play a lot of shows?
Conor: so far this year has gone really slow, not that many shows but in march 2004 we have set up a lot of shows and are just going to keep doing that. We are planning on doing a mini-tour through the southwest
Eric: oh really, have you guys been on a tour before?
Conor: no but there is a first time for everything
Eric: that there is
Conor: we plan on going with a band that has gone on tour before to show us the ropes
Eric: good idea
Eric: so do you have any shows that stand out in your mind, maybe something funny happened?
Conor: oo haha when we were Suburban Heartache we were playing at Tim’s Net Guru and it was a bad night no one was having fun and to top it off Nathan was going crazy and he ripped the mic cord out of the plug-in and he ran to put it back in and tripped and fell flat on his face. it was hilarious
Eric: sounds funny
Eric: so were do you see tryst going in the future, musically. Do you plan to hit it big?
Conor: We are going to try really hard. We love the music we play and we love playing in front of people that enjoy it as well. ItÃƒ¯Ã‚¿Ã‚½s hard to hit it big as you’ve said but we are going to try to get as far as we can. and it’d really help if we could get help along the way.
Eric: so, how do you go about writing songs, lyrically, and Musically
Conor: musically, usually josh rights a part to the song or all the song. he writes both guitar parts and at practice we just play it, revise it along the way and make it a song. Lyrically Nathan just sings whatever he wants, he just lets it out or should you say “improvise” a lot for the first couple times so you add that together and you have a tryst song
Eric: so were do you get your lyrics from?
Conor: Nathan writes all the lyrics except for one song called “Georgia in the Colorado” josh wrote that, but Nathan gets his lyrics from the past with girls, friends, bad times, good times, anything he can think of he puts its into words
Eric: do you guys plan on hitting the studio anytime and getting maybe an EP out?
Conor: actually we are planning on going into the studio during the summer and putting out an EP if you’ve heard our demo, the EP is going to be a little more “harder” and deeper. We haven’t come up with a name with it yet
Eric: awesome, I can’t wait to hear some new stuff
Eric: well, I have been to many of your shows, and I would have to say I love you stage performance
Eric: what do you think about while youÃƒ¯Ã‚¿Ã‚½re up there?
Conor: well I would say our past stage performances have been horrible but the couple last shows have been really good and better. We think to have fun not to impress. I mean we want to have people like us but we like to have fun and mess around and just play in front of people.
Eric: while were on the subject, what would you say your best experience has been?
Conor: the best experience… hhmm there has been a lot of “the best ones,” one of them was we were playing at Grandpa’s music box and we were playing In your List and the crowd starts singing in on it as well. Nathan didn’t even have to sing because we could hear the crowd sing.. There is nothing like hearing other people sing your songs also in that same night some random person got up on stage and starting singing/screaming with Nathan.
Eric: I bet that was super cool
Eric: alright well before I let you go, is there anything else you would like to say?
Eric: ok, go for it
