1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
were a bunch of dudes who like playing pissed off music and touring.
Theories started about 4 years ago and was started mainly to travel with, we wrote music and put recording on the back burner so we could just do what we loved, hit the road as much as possible. This past year we released a split 7 with our buddies in Wake on 7degrees records and Handshake inc., released a song for a local seattle comp called Seattle Noise and recorded a full length record that will come out in the future.
2.How would you describe your musical sound?
3.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Theories'/
Were all into conspiracy theories and wanted the name of the band to be nondescript so it didn't seem like a typical band name that you can tell what kind of music you were gonna hear by the sound of the name. This worked.
4.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
All shows are rad, we feel privileged to be able to play shows and tour as much as we do. But its definitely been awesome to be able to share the stage and road with so many rad bands that we look up to and respect.
5.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
Right now were taking a break from touring until our record comes out, we have a few local and northwest shows but besides that were just taking a break and doing our 'life at home' stuff.
6.The band was originally from Oregon but relocated to Washington, what was the decision behind the move and also how would you compare the scenes in both states?
Were actually all from Seattle wa, not sure where the Oregon part came from, but we love the portland scene.
7.According to the fb page you have signed to Metal Blade Records, can you tell us a little bit more about this deal?
Yep! just recently signed to Metal Blade Records, they will be releasing our full length sometime next year, theres not really much more that we can tell you about it until the announcement is made other than it grinds!
8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of grindcore?
Not too sure on the worldwide level, all the touring we have done has been in the states, but we plan on going overseas as much as we can next year.
9.When can we expect a full length album and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
Early next year.
10What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
This question always gets me, i dunno, it always seems to be the same rehashed answer for every band of every style to say the names of the big influential bands of the style they play that you knew they were gonna say and then add in a couple obscure bands to show they know about some underground stuff and end it with some bands that have nothing to do with the style of music they're playing to show you they have well rounded musical taste and don't stick to one thing. Blah Blah Blah.
We write music that we think sounds good to us, if it works we go with it, if it doesn't we don't. Im sure our influences show in what we play.
11.What are some of your non musical interests?
Cats and Dogs
12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
