Interview with Resolve And Reside!

Genre(s): Metalcore
Location: Tacoma, Washington
PSAB: Why did you choose the name “Resolve and Reside” for your band?
RAR: Well as with many bands, you sort of just start coming up with names
that sound nice a stick in your head. Once someone thought of the name
Resolve & Reside for our band, we sort of attached our own different
meanings to it as we went on.
PSAB: You released a single titled “Arrogance” back in July. How has the feedback been for that?
RAR: The initial response to Arrogance was really good. The response while
playing this song live was amazing. Seeing people pitting and going nuts
at a venue is something we like to see, so we attempted to make this
song as well as a lot of our other songs something that you can go wild
PSAB: If you could share the stage with any band, which band would that be?
RAR: August Burns Red, definitely. I’m sure I speak for most of our band when
I say that all of us have a serious respect for their technique and
skill as musicians. August Burns Red is one of the bigger influences of
our bands style and we definitely hope to share the stage with them
someday really soon.
PSAB: How’s the metal scene in Tacoma, Washington?
RAR: The scene is small but really close, most venues locally have shut down
unless you travel to Seattle so we hope to bring back some of the
hardcore scene to Tacoma, and it’s surrounding areas.
PSAB: What are the top three bands that play an influence on your music?
RAR: August Burns Red, Texas In July, and Fit for a King (Who we play with in Seattle on 10/4!).
PSAB: Any shout outs to give to the readers out there?
RAR: Shout out Redeem the Exile, those dudes are great and really fun to play
with. Shout out to our manager Sebastian. And most of all a shout out
to our small loyal fan base for supporting us by listening to our music,
buying our merch, and coming out to shows; couldn’t be where we are
without you, so thanks.Also be sure to come see us play Studio 7
on 10/4 w/ Being as an Ocean / Fit for a King / Gideon / Wolves at the

Interview with Virulent!

Genre(s): Metalcore
Location: Phoenix, AZ
PSAB: Where does the band name “Virulent” come from?
Virulent: The band name
Virulent was spawned by Guitarist Matt Nisbet to describe the sound.
Bitterly, hostile, and highly infectious. It was fitting to what sound
we were shooting for.
PSAB: Your album “Empire” is coming out on the 27th of this month. Are you excited for this release?
Virulent: That is correct, Sept. 27th is the release date for “Empire”. We are very excited to share our new record with everyone..
you had the choice to tour another country with three other bands.
Which country would that be and which three bands would you choose?
Virulent: We hear Germany or Sweden is really big on metal. So possibly either
one of those two countries. As for bands to tour with we would have to
say, Acacia Strain, Lamb of God, and Emmure would be our top 3.
PSAB: How’s the local scene in Phoenix, AZ?
Virulent: The local scene on Phoenix is absolutely amazing. There is a lot of
great talents here. Everyone is really friendly. We all like to support
each others shows and hang out drinking beer. Its a very supportive
scene in Phoenix.
PSAB: What are your hobbies outside of the band and creating music?
Virulent: Hot rods, video games, music gear and drinking beer.
PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans, and the readers out there?
Virulent: We would have to give shouts out to our record label, Sullen Musik. Our
sponsors, Impact Studio’s, Sullen Artist Collective, Big Time Threads,
Bestin Case Road Cases, and to everyone who has shown us support and
love. Huge “Thanks” to all.

Interview with Street To The Ocean!

Genre(s): Metalcore
Location: Wien
PSAB: Why did you choose the name “Street to the Ocean” for your band?
STTO: When we were looking for a name one of our guitar players came up with
“Street to the Ocean” . We’ve chosen it because it’s an easy name to
remember and it’s very neutral. It doesn’t sound negative but also not
really positive and you can’t have any prejudices in regard to our
lyrics, playing style etc. when you’re hearing our name. Oh and of course it sounds good in our opinion haha!PSAB: What are your plans for this Fall season?
STTO: In July and August we’ve recorded our new EP called “Mirror” and shot a
music video for one of the tracks. So we’re planning to release both in
early Fall. Apart from playing a few shows we will begin writing new songs for our first full length album.PSAB: If you had the chance to tour any country. Which country would that be?
STTO: We’d love to tour everywhere outside of Europe because it would be a
new experience  but  we all agree that a dream would become true for us
if we ever could tour in the USA.PSAB: How is the metal scene in your area?
STTO: We have a lot of fans of this genre and also a lot of talented upcoming
metal bands. Luckily there are enough promoters and locations which are
very interested in pushing the scene forwards so it can stay alive!PSAB: What are the top five bands that have played the most influence on your music?
STTO: Bands like Parkway Drive, The Ghost Inside and Bury Tomorrow have a
huge influence on our instrument playing style. Our vocalist is mostly
influenced by bands like Heaven Shall Burn or All That Remains.PSAB: Have any shout outs to give?
STTO: We’re glad that pages like this are existing which are promoting underground bands and not only the well-known. We
also really want to thank our fans, families and friends for supporting
us. Without them we wouldn’t be there,  where we are today.

Interview with State of Awakening!

Genre(s): Progressive/Metalcore
Location: Ghent, Belgium

PSAB: Why did you choose the name “State of Awakening” for your band?SOA: Our
singer had this idea for a band name since he was a teenager. He
suggested this name and it immediately stuck in our minds. Also SoA is a
Dutch abbreviation for STD. We also were thinking to change SoA to
“Seals Throwing Dookie”. Now, thinking of it, there is much more to the
name than initially came to mind. That is why we stick by it.

PSAB: How was the feedback when you released Ruin To Rebuild? Are you still receiving feedback now?
SOA: The
feedback has been somewhat limited up to this point. However, most of
the feedback and reviews are still on their way. Our friends and loyal
fan base are very excited and so are several other sources. Each stage
performance we gain enthusiasm. The less positive feedback criticized
our divergent songwriting. Which is exactly the way in which we try to
stand apart. Still, we cherish every piece of advice and feedback we
get, be it positive or negative.
PSAB: What is the local metal scene like in Ghent, Belgium?
Ghent, but also more generally in Belgium, we have a lot of little
scenes dedicated to a specific subgenre. Sadly, these scenes never have
contact with each other. Even small booking agencies almost never work
together or go to each others’ shows. The bands need to take initiative
to cross the borders of their scene. And mostly, this only has limited
PSAB: What one band has played the most influence on your music?
SOA: Every
member of State of Awakening has their influence, our bassist is mostly
influenced by Tool and our singer by the genius ABBA. But if we have to
choose one band, we could say Avenged Sevenfold has had the most impact
on us.
PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans, and the readers out there?
SOA: We are no strangers to love, you know the rules and so do we. In other words, we are never going to give you up, never going to let you down. We are never going to run around and desert you.Peace out.
