Accept all. Listening to your new songs, they have the same formula but beefed up. Thanks so much, Hutch! The songs just come out how they come out. I think Noi! It just depends on your perspective, but to answer your question in the longest possible Noi!se - The Scars We Hide (Vinyl I generally tell people we sound like Winger. I think that you are elevated among LP bands, one is the pure passion and ferocity — but also that melodic hook, you guys write taut emotional songs like Cock Sparrer, The GC5, Whiskey Rebels, also Bad Religion circa Against The Grainetc.
Those are some pretty incredible bands to be compared to, first of all. We have always tried to write songs about the world around us. We are trying to make sense of things just as much as the people who listen to our music. What we try to do is to present an objective viewpoint of what we see happening and encourage people to think.
Not to think a certain way, but to think a little bit about what is really happening versus what they are being fed on a daily basis. Looking forward to MidWest Fest in May? Looking for to highlights?
All of the bands on the bill are amazing and it is beyond an honor to have been asked to play! So you have a new album out, plus a Street Dogs split. Can you talk about how that came about?
I have been a fan of the Street Dogs for a decade. I found out about a year ago that they had gotten into Noi! We are very, very excited. Any new approach in these recordings? Jesse our guitar player has produced every Noi! Another change was us being able to take our time with the recording process all of our other records have been recorded in one to two days.
We were also fortunate enough to have our friends, Lars Frederiksen and Mike Erickson mix the record once we had finished recording. How was Rising Tide received?
Two re-dos there, what led to that decision? Rising Tide was received better than we could have possibly expected, Album). Our original intent was for Rising Tide to be a full length, but with me having just returned from Afghanistan and us finding out our guitar player at the time would be deploying in a month, we had 3 weeks to learn and record Rising Tide.
It is what it is. With families and jobs and being in the service — how much focus can you put on the band? I think the hardest part is balancing everything without doing anything half ass. My wife and LP come first, without exception. The Army obviously comes second and every minute left is devoted to the band.
Here is the answer: My son is three years old. I have spent a year and a half away from him because of my job. The Army just takes me away from my family too often to spend more than a few days out on the road with the band.
If Noi! Time management and Noi!se - The Scars We Hide (Vinyl able to have your priorities in order are imperative to attempting multiple endeavors.
The main reason is the same reason we do almost everything else differently than most bands: the Army. Since we never know when I may have to go somewhere, the priority becomes recording the material we have written so that while I am gone, the band has something to release. I recently found out that I will be moving to Korea for a year beginning in August.
