Eagle Scout - 01.07.09

Interviewed by: Anton Djamoos (06/17/09)
The following is a mini interview of generic questions that we posed to all bands that wanted to answer. Below you will find answers from bands that replied.

Eagle Scout [myspace]

1. How did you get your band name?
We had to change our name from Cool Your Jets because a band from Utah already had it. We just stumbled upon the idea and all approved.

2. How did this band get started?
Met at Greenville College in Fall 06 and shared similar influences.

3. What bands are you influenced by?
Get Up Kids, At The Drive-In, Further Seems Forever, Side Walk Slam, and The Chariot

4. If you could tour with any bands, past or present, who would it be and why?
Present - Foals - because it'd be a dance party every night
Past - At the Drive In - because they just dominated

5. If you were a furry, what animal would you be? Why that animal?
Kyle - Polar Bear - because they rule
Brandon - Chinchilla - because they are fast as heck
Jeremiah - puppy - all the girls would love me
Ben - Grizzly Bear - because I have a bear tattoo
Robert - a sweatshirt - because I'd keep people warm

6. Why should people listen to your band?
We always get the most varied "you guys sound like _____", so I think everyone can find something about our music that they like. We appeal to hardcore kids, indie kids, and dancy kids...

7. If you were chosen to be in Guitar Hero/Rock Band, what song would you want in the game? How hard do you think it would be to five-star on expert?
Haha..Deathrays. Probably not too hard, we aren't Rush or anything.

8. If you won a Grammy, who would you thank?
People who listened to us, went to our shows, bought our merch, recorded us, or got us shows on tour when we were small.

9. If you could change something about the music industry, what would it be?
That talented and original bands are more successful than trendy bands who play the business game the best.

10. Memorable tour experience?
Ben getting locked in a grocery store bathroom because he was in the bathroom when they closed the store. He then left the store, setting off the alarms and we had to call the police and deal with some ridiculous store managers.

11. What does AP.net mean to you?
AP.net means a lot to us. It is what really got things going for us. After having a great review and being a self-promotion spotlight band, shows have been easier to get and we got signed to Cavity Records.

12. What is your favorite song to play?
Kyle - a new one we are finishing
Brandon - Kites
Jeremiah - nodevillivedon
Ben - Deathrays

13. What is your vacation spot of choice?
New Zealand

14. What music reminds you of your childhood?
Kyle - New Found Glory
Brandon - At the Drive In
Jeremiah - New Found Glory
Ben - WIPEOUT and Further Seems Forever
Robert - Every Time I Die

15. Do you feel that your band has "made it"?
We are stoked to be where we are right now. Sure we would like to be touring a bit more, but we are still in school. We are very happy so I would say we are successful in our minds.

17. What is something that most fans don't know about you?
We ONLY drink Vess grape soda

18. What's your favorite holiday?
Kyle - 4th of July
Brandon - Thanksgiving
Jeremiah - Thanksgiving
Ben - Christmas
Robert - Labor day

19. What do you like to do in your spare time?
Play mariokart or James Bond. www.freetetris.org. Longboard and bike. Hot tub!

20. What kind of hidden talents do you have?
Robert is way good at drawing. Brandon could have played soccer at a D2 school. Ben is a sweet hockey goalie. Jeremiah is really good at picking up chicks on accident. Kyle can out paddle-ball anyone anytime.
