Stellar3716: well we are going to keep talkin to them and hopefully something good will come out of it! With the next 5 songs we do we will have a better idea of what will happen!

Stellar3716: umm no we havent really talked to any other labels right now but we are going to start shopping to a bunch of labels soon and hopefully we can start some buzz with the tour we are doing this summer. We want to keep our options open.
Stellar3716: so if your an owner of a label and reading this….sign my fucking band
inebrios3: haha, right on!
inebrios3: so what are you guys up to in your spare time besides getting backstage betty’s and whatnot
Stellar3716: well we all work and stuff and we all go to school so we are mostly real busy with that. And we just go out and have fun hanging out with our buddies in Wide of the mark who we are putting that Split EP out with.
Stellar3716: they are our close friends
inebrios3: awesome man, so letÃƒ¯Ã‚¿Ã‚½s rewind a bit
inebrios3: who are some of your biggest influences musically
Stellar3716: umm like who we kind of like get inspiration to write music from?
inebrios3: and who do you guys listen to
Stellar3716: well we all like Spitalfield who we played with a few times, Punchline who are amazing,ya know old school blink and green day! CanÃƒ¯Ã‚¿Ã‚½t be a pop punk band without that! And i listen to alot of Alt Rock like the Smashing Pumpkins and stuff but we dont song Alt rock in any way shape or form! Haha
inebrios3: true enough my friend. These new songs sound amazing, anything you want to say about them?
Stellar3716: well it took us a few months to write those songs because we wanted to make them the best we could and this time around we wanted to sing about something other than the vagina and the women so we wrote the songs based on personal conflict and every day situtations that people go through. We try and keep it real!
inebrios3: smells like progress to me
inebrios3: what kind of gear are you guys playing with?
Stellar3716: I use Gibson Les Paul Studio guitat with Mesa Boogie Single Rectifier and Marshall 1960A Cab
Dan uses a Marshall JCM 900 and a Marshall 1960A Cab with a Gibson SG
Joe uses a Ampeg 6X10 with an MXR Pedal
And Ryan our Drummer uses an old Vintage 1969 Ludwig set
