The last time Alice Cooper played Colorado Springs was 2010, and he brought with him his usual armory of ghouls and guillotines. Six years later, we don’t quite get Alice, but we get something so close you swear you’re in Alice’s big top of terror. DragonTown Dan kicked off Halloween weekend at Stargazers Theatre in beautiful Colorado Springs. Continue reading
The date was September 10, 2016. I awoke from a sleepless night. Not from heartache or drama, but from anticipation. You know, a night rocking out to music, memorizing that last verse of your favorite song, looking up YouTube videos of opening acts. That utterly restless night lost in the imagination of the next days adventure. That’s right, that night before the big show. For me it is the ‘High Elevation Rock Festival’ at Fiddlers Green Amphitheater in Denver, CO sponsored by Monster Energy.
Only a few ears since forming near Leeds UK, electro-rockers Deadaudiosaints have been turning on ears with their eclectic mix of catchy rock anthems, hummable chorus and riffs. Vincent Renn of Ghost Cult caught up with Danny Jones to learn more about this up and coming band.
You guys formed in 2013, and seem to be touring non-stop. What’s that like?
We love playing live, it’s what it’s all about. You can’t replicate a crowd connection anywhere but in that environment. Plus it’s always good fun travelling in a van then arguing on who is sleeping where.
What bands inspired your sound and inspired you to be musicians?
We all have a few different influences but share common ground with bands such as Marilyn Manson, Placebo, Papa Roach, Deftones, Rob Zombie. The musicianship and stage shows from these in particular are big influences.
Would you say that it’s all the different influences that give you guys the sound which is clearly your own?
For sure. Because we all have our own spin on each others ideas it gives us a very diverse catalogue to bring things from. Which is where our sound comes from.
‘Forever’ is one of those songs that sounds familiar, yet fresh and brand new. Can you tell us how the single came together?
Forever actually started off as a synth line idea then musically things developed over that pretty quick. With regards to the lyrics and stuff. I riffed around with the melody then began playing around with the lyrics. It’s kind of my twist on the ‘He fucked me over in Love’ scenario. I flipped it round to ‘She fucked me over in Love’. The track means a lot to me so it was cool that the end product turned out pretty sweet. Plus we had Tyler ‘Scout’ Acord (formerly of Issues) mix and master the track to get that big sound which was really cool.
How does the writing process work for you guys? Is it a studio process or are you always writing?
It just depends on the mood to be honest. A lot of ideas are thrown around outside the studio then we all get together to put it all together and iron out the creases to put the Deadaudiosaints sound to it.
What else do you guys have planned as far as releasing new music?
We are busy writing and filtering through stuff and we are hoping to get our debut album out this year. There will no doubt be a new video soon too.
Who’s on your bucket list to tour with?
This list could be huge but definitely Marilyn Manson, Placebo, Papa Roach, Rob Zombie, Korn, 30 Seconds To Mars.
What’s one piece of advice you would give to someone whom you inspired to become a musician?
‘Make your music for yourself, enjoy it, do your own thing’ If you believe in what you do and people can see the passion then they will connect with it.
How soon can your fans in the United States expect to see you?
We are hoping to be over in States this summer but if the opportunity arrises sooner then we will be there straight away.
Addams Family or The Munster’s and why?
Addams Family but not entirely sure why ……….. but the Munsters had The Dragula.
