1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?
Just wanted to get our "new sound" out I guess. We have a new line up since our singer quit. Izzi and I (Barnum) do vocals now while playing drums and guitar.
2.You have a new album coming out, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?
Junkies and Addictions
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Homewrecker'?
It's not because of the Converge song. It's not about a person ruining a relationship or family. We were teenagers and the dude that would tattoo us was like oh you should name your band Homewrecker and we thought it was sick.
5.What are some of the best shows that the band ha splayed over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
We played two really cool fests, Rain Fest in Seattle and Heart Fest in Quebec. The response we got at those two shows was some of the best we've ever had.
I don't really know how to describe our stage performance. We are a 4 piece with no front man. We play tight and we don't talk a bunch in between songs.
6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?
Yeah we are actually out on a 43 day North American run with Pharaoh from New Jersey who are also supporting their new release on A389.
7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of crust and grind?
It's been great. It seems like it's always steadily getting more and more spread out.
8.Are any of the band members involved with any other musical projects or bands these days?
Izzi and myself play in another band called Vice (from Ohio, obviously) but we don't play much. We have several smaller bands that's just fun to jam when we are bored.
9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
We'd like to start doing some metal tours and show that we don't need to stay in the "hardcore" scene.
10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
We grew up on punk, and rock so that's what influences us. Izzi is driving right now listening to Motörhead.
11.What are some of your non musical interests?
Personally, I like being out doors doing anything. Or just chilling with my dogs when I'm home. Skateboarding is cool but I suck at it so I'll just cruise around town.
12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Thanks for hitting us up. Sorry for being so bland haha. We aren't used to doing interviews.
