It feels like it's been forever since we've done a good old fashioned chat interview here on Hearts Bleed Radio. In my defense, I've been doing a shit ton of booking (May has 5 friggin' Fridays!). This week we have a showcase on Friday at Matchless and Saturday at Pet Rescue. You should probably come to both of them, because, whoever you are, I don't seen you enough and we need to hang out more. So... Friday's lineup is great. Opening up is me, Stephen Otto Perry, playing solo, like I never do. Second we have White Like Fire, all the way from Pittsburgh, PA (they are awesome!) and Shelter Dogs (Brian LaRue's other other band, which he fronts). Next is Let's Be Loveless, and closing out the night is The Black Black. I can't say enough about this lineup, it's diverse but it works. Anyway, we had some chat action with Abby and Eric from Let's Be Loveless. Here's the transcript:
Hearts Bleed Radio: You guys have been busy in the studio. You have a single and a B-side dropping this week and an EP on the way?
Eric: Well, we just mixed/mastered 2 songs out of about 7 tunes we've been painstakingly writing/recording. It's been a year process. We get a little obsessive when recording. We are hoping to drop one of them this week, and maybe another in May to keep people interested.
Abby: We are super excited to release these songs.
HBR: Which one is dropping this week?
Eric: Well, not sure. Which one do you think works. Stephen, You are like the 3rd person to hear them. Ha.
Abby: We'll get back to you on which single we're releasing, but it will either be "Hostages" or "A Boy's Irrational Bedtime Fear" or "Death to the Moon."
HBR: Do you enjoy recording?
Abby: Recording is actually my favorite part of the process. Liquor helps a lot when doing vocals.
HBR: Really? Haha, it's my least favorite.
Eric: Yeah, I'm a fan of writing/recording. It's when I feel like I'm actually creating something.
Abby: Yes, it's like giving birth.
|Abby and Eric, I'm not even going to describe this picture, it's too perfect.|
HBR: I think "A Boy's Irrational Bedtime Fear" is the first single.
Eric: I think so too. It's a rocker, and has awesome Smiths'y title.
