AP.net Interview: Five Iron Frenzy

Posted by - 10:53 AM on 12/30/11
My recent interview with Five Iron Frenzy can be read here.
QuoteWe grab inspiration from so many artists, from Jimmy Eat World to Weezer and NOFX. We have a lot of NOFX rip off songs. I think because we have roots in secular music that we feel inspired by it. In terms of lyrics, we've always felt we have a "voice", as in a responsibility to tell the truth and tell a story, especially for those who can't represent themselves. And I think there's always an aspect of social justice in our music, whether it's a "blue mix" that's unfair to an opening band, something about Native Americans, or the way we look at a child whose parents are divorced. Subjects like that we'll never stray away from. If anything, we'll be even more vocal because we've become even more adamant about speaking truths.

I'm happy these guys are back together. I don't really listen to Ska at all anymore but I'll go see them if they tour.
