AP.net Interview: Obey The Brave

Posted by: Jake Denning (02/12/13)
You can check out our interview with Obey The Brave, here.
Everyone in Despised Icon was jumping on a new train, trying something else - trying out the family life, trying out new career opportunities, and I kind of felt pressured at my age nearing 30 to do what the rest of my boys were doing, and so I did; I got an awesome marketing job for a clothing retailer, was working the office job 9 to 5, a steady paycheck and great team, but I wasn't happy because I felt like I was stepping on my own toes with something that I wasn't ready to do. And it really came down to me questioning what I had to do to become happy in life, and the answer was simple - play music. So I quit everything and put everything on the line - stability, security, etc. So I started a new band, called it Obey The Brave, and here we are, and I'm happy I took that chance, because it wasn't necessarily a done deal.

Great guy, awful music. Seems it's a requirement for Montreal hardcore to totally blow.

Dude isn't that a bit harsh? I mean I kinda feel what you're saying you're just a bit over generalizing... perhaps it's because I'm in a hardcore myself you know heh.

Shit I should probably watch what I say when I'm using my real name and stuff haha
I stand by I said. Maybe there are some good bands from here, I don't now. I've actually never heard your band though (I think I have you on facebook)

Ah yes, that's what I thought. I remember the Gallows show, it was the night before a midterm or something, and I decided last minute to stay in or something. I heard the Cancer Bats show was wild though
