Eric: well first off, tell me your names, and the other band members names, and what you all play
Alex: Alex (me) and Ryan both play guitar and sing
Alex: Kevin plays bass, and tom plays drums
Eric: how long have you guys been a band?
Alex: since February of last year
Alex: so about 1 full year
Eric: did you have a few small bands before Adelphi?
Alex: we had a really crappy pop punk band called “fat Austin”
Eric: and how did that turn out
Alex: we played a really big battle of the bands
Alex: in DC
Alex: and we got second place out of 50 bands
Alex: so we started getting really serious
Eric: so how did Adelphi form?
Alex: adelphi formed in February of 2003 when our drummer quit
Alex: and we found tom
Alex: and started a whole new band
Eric: and, tell me what enthused productions is, a record label or?
Alex: it’s my brother’s company, he just loves music and really wants to help out local bands
Alex: the site is www.enthusedproductions.com, definitely go check it out
Alex: my brother’s heart is in the right place and he really loves to help out
Eric: so do you think being on his website gets your name out?
Eric: and, how has it helped you?
Alex: yeah definitely
Tom: yes it has helped
Tom: and right now that site is where everyone goes to buy our CD
Alex: my brother paid for the second pressing of our CD as well
Alex: so we could have CDs on tour last summer
Eric: so your CD “Don’t Pass Go” tell me a little bit about it, the message it sends to people, etc…
Alex: it’s really pop punk, we’ve grown a lot since then
Alex: I guess it’s mostly about girls Tom: the message is dont pass go
Tom: like seriously
Tom: in monopoly
Tom: dont pass go
Tom: greedy bastard
Alex: haha tom
Eric: so was that your first real CD?
Alex: yeah it was our first real CD
Eric: how long did it take to record it?
Tom: a month or so?
Tom: we werenÃƒ¯Ã‚¿Ã‚½t in the studio constantly though
Tom: because it was near DC at American University
Alex: it was free at American U
Alex: this guy Matt Thomas who still works with us a lot, he is the shit
Tom: so it was far away and we had to make sure there was time available
Eric: so if Adelphi isn’t as pop punk as it used to be, what would you say your music is now?
Alex: I wouldn’t really put ourselves in a specific genre
Tom: I hate that question personally
Tom: its 2 guitars
Tom: bass guitar
Alex: we just try to be different I guess
Tom: and 2 vocalists
Tom: if u like us
Tom: if u donÃƒ¯Ã‚¿Ã‚½t
Tom: oh well
Alex: Kevin says, “no dude we’re metal core”
Tom: but I hate people who make assumptions…
Tom: oh man their emo
Tom: I donÃƒ¯Ã‚¿Ã‚½t like emo blah blah
Alex: yeah we sing emotionally sometimes
Eric: how do you guys go about writing songs, and were do lyrics come from?
Alex: we usually write music in practice
Alex: and then go home and write lyrics
Alex: they’re always based off of personal experiences
Eric: awesome, have you guys been playing a lot shows lately?
Alex: actually no, we’ve been doing nothing but writing
Tom: and recording
Alex: but we have a secret barrage of shows booked
Tom: and promoting
Alex: and we’re going to release it soon

Alex: but I don’t think we’re going to put it out anytime soon
Tom: yeah demo
Alex: they’re all demos
Eric: how many songs will there be?
Tom: too many for your ears to handle
Tom: it will be an orgasm
Tom: none of this 10 second orgasm crap
Tom: a long one
Alex: when we finish the CD
Alex: it’s going to be the kind of thing you want to play straight through
Eric: I can’t wait!
Eric: were do you guys see yourselves going in the future, such as tour, music, etc?
Alex: touring really soon
Alex: putting out an EP
