Junkie Joker


1. How did you get your band name?

When I was a kid in school I never paid attention to class, I would just draw band names and logos in my notebook.

2. How did this band get started?

In 2009, after being in many bands, I decided to create my own, so I went back to my high school notebook and found the name and logo there.

3. What bands are you influenced by?

Accidental Superhero, Alien Ant Farm, Eve 6, Over It, Green Day, Yellowcard

4. If you could tour with any bands, past or present, who would they be and why?

Yellowcard, Over It, Four Year Strong. Bands that bring it live. Bands that put on a good gig.

5. Best food to eat on tour?

Pizza Hut Super Supreme

6. Why should people listen to your band?

We believe music done honestly can be relatable to people. It comes down to taste, but those who like our style may find something nice to listen to.

Joe Montana. Love the game, amazing plays.

8. If you won a Grammy, who would you thank?

The fans, if we had some.

9. If you could change something about the music industry, what would it be?
The industry is always changing itself. No matter what time or changes happen to the scene, having a band will always be about working hard.

18. What is your assessment of the current state of radio? Do you think it's a place where your band could flourish?

Radio friendly is a good term to describe us, but I don't think people still listen to radio as they used to. People don't need a DJ to tell them what to listen to.

19. What do you like to do in your spare time?

Xbox, swimming.

20. What kind of hidden talents do you have?

I'm an awful cook, but I like to cook.
