If you’re expecting an Attack Attack! interview discussing their latest album Someday Came Suddenly or their awesome Katy Perry cover of “I Kissed a Girl” from Punk Goes Pop 2…this isn’t it. I interviewed all six of these guys at Warped Tour in Ventura and they were in high spirits and enjoying the living daylight out of being on Warped Tour. Read on and see what I mean…
Attack Attack!, Warped Tour, Day Three. How’s it going so far, boys?
[Cheering] Awesome! Everything’s going good actually, going awesome. Can we cuss? F**k yeah. F**k. That was funny!
Okay, so you guys had a pretty successful tour with Escape the Fate. How was that?
Awesome, great, they’re good dudes. I had fun. They’re a great band. I’m rocking their merch. Rock and roll!
So would you guys rather do a tour like that or a festival like Warped, Bamboozle, etc?
Warped. More people, more people to meet. It’s crazy. Craziness.
If you had the chance to play ONE song to somebody that’s never heard of you guys in hopes of gaining them as a fan, which song would it be and why?
Michael’s Jackson’s Beat It. Because John likes to beat it. John’s got the beat. Oh, holy shit! That was funny again.
Stereotypical question here. Who are you guys most excited to see?
Underoath. Or Dance Gavin Dance. Oh, Millionaires and BrokeNCYDE, too.
I was kidding about Millionaires and BrokeNCYDE by the way.
So, a lot of bands play at the same time, besides your obvious sense of humor, why should fans comes see you guys?
Cause we suck. We’re crab-core, motha f**k! Don’t f**k with crab-core! You should come see us because apparently we look like crabs when we’re onstage when we play. We’re crustacean metal.
Anything else to add?
See you on the road!
