The following is a mini interview of generic questions that we posed to all bands that wanted to answer:
This Is a Movement
1. How did you get your band name?

We all met in high school and came from different bands.
3. What bands are you influenced by?
We all come from different influences mainly bands like Hot Water Music, Minus The Bear and Explosions in the Sky
4. If you could tour with any bands, past or present, who would they be and why?
Probably Motley Crue in the '80s. I mean they totally suck. but god damn we would have a good time.
5. Best food to eat on tour?

Our best memories are probably not that interesting to others. One of the funniest times was having rap battles while sleeping at rest stops and Wal Mart parking lots. Its the little things that make it fun.

Our guitar player is English.
16. What is your assessment of the current state of radio? Do you think it's a place where your band could flourish?
If your referring to standard FM radio, then no. Radio stations for some reason think rock died after Nickleback. The only "Rock" stations out there only play Butt-Rock and Classic oldies. I see internet Radio as an awesome tool but thanks to Clear Channel, modern FM radio is not a valid source for anyone to find new music.

My stare time is mostly spent booking shows or designing something new for the band.

I can throw a pig skin a quarter mile!
