Interview with Laws of Interia!

Genre(s): Hardcore/Metal

Location: Hackettstown, NJ / Ogden, UT

PSAB: Why did you choose the name “Laws of Inertia” for your band?

LOI: Before Laws of Inertia was around, my friend Matt and I were in a band
called Sum of all Fears. We never did anything; we had like two songs
and never played anywhere so Matt proposed the idea to start a more
serious, more technical project called Laws of Inertia. I’m not positive
why he came up with it, but it sounds cool so it stuck. Matt also is no
longer a part of the band.

PSAB: You
haven’t released an EP or album since August of 2013, but have released
several singles over the course of 2014. When can we expect a new EP or
a full album?

LOI: Currently, Spencer and I are writing a full album that should be out
this summer. We released a few singles this year because we wanted to
show everyone our new vocalist and give a taste of what’s to come this
year. The EP that was out last August was totally done by me and was
rushed. In short, it sucks kinda. The new album, however, is having much
more work put into it so it should be pretty cool.

PSAB: If you had the chance to share the stage with any band, which band would that be?

David: I would really love to share the stage with Veil of Maya because
Marc has had a huge impact on how I play guitar.
Spencer: Oh man, I
would have to say The Contortionist. They are unlike any other band in
my opinion.

PSAB: What are the top five bands that play an influence on your music the most?

David: Veil of Maya, The Black Dahlia Murder, Parkway Drive, Lorna
Shore, and Whitechapel probably

Spencer: Between The Buried and Me, Veil
of Maya, Lorna Shore, The Contortionist, and Suicide Silence

PSAB: How is the local metal scene in Hackettstown, NJ and/or Ogden, UT?

David: The whole Northern Jersey scene is great. Lorna Shore and
Existence are both from here so it’s cool seeing them both blow up now
in the metal community. There are always shows to go to with tons of
really great bands with loads of potential.

Spencer: Ogden’s metal scene
really fucking blows in my opinion. There are some cool bands but the
last cool thing to come from my area was Chelsea Grin. Though they are
not from Ogden, they are from SLC which is just forty five minutes away
from Ogden. I really wish I could see this scene be where it used to be.
Back in 2004-2008 was a really booming time for Ogden but since then it
has severely slowed down.

PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to readers out there?

David: I know we’re not huge, but I’d like to thank anyone who has ever
listened to, downloaded, shared, or done anything else regarding our
music. Pig Squeals and Breakdowns has hugely helped us get our name out.
Daimien Hartranft of Get JIGGY With It and Shawn Rhude of Afflicted
Records are my dudes. Anyone else who has helped LOI and me, you know
who you are. Right now we don’t have anything super-cool out, but I can
assure you that our upcoming album will slay.

Spencer: I just wanna say
thanks to anyone who has ever taken the time to listen to our music. Rob
Donnelly who is the owner of Terror Tracks who has helped me since the
beginning. A HUGE thanks to Pig Squeals and Breakdowns for always
helping us out and exposing us to the music scene! And one last big
thanks to everyone who ever took the time out of their day to
listen/share/like us or support in any way, Big things are to come so be
sure to keep up to date!
