Reach The Sky Interview

Question: What has the Boston Warped Tour done for you?

Reach The Sky: Allowed us to play in front of hundreds of kids who haven't ever heard of us before. A lot of kids who have checked us out there have come out and checked us and other bands out later. Plus it gives us a chance to play outside, which is always cool.

Question: What has been your most memorable experience on tour?

Reach The Sky:Too many to name, but mostly they have to do with making new friends all over the world, seeing awesome bands and travelling to places I never would have been to otherwise. .

Question: What do you think of your new album compared to past releases?

Reach The Sky: I think its our best music to date. Its a bit different, but a logical progression. Its a change, but nothing drastic.

Question: What are some bands that you like to tour with?

Reach The Sky:Blood for Blood, Madball, Buried Alive, Boy Sets Fire, Dropkick Murphys, Ignite, 7 Seconds, Kill Your Idols, All Out War, Bane, Converge.

Question: Is there anywhere you would like to tour that you have not gotten the chance to yet?

Reach The Sky: Japan and Australia.

Question: How did you all meet?

Reach The Sky: I met Chris when we started the band. I knew Brendan and Bob from earlier bands.

Question: Where do you like to tour?

Reach The Sky: Anywhere they will let us play.

Question: What do you think the Warped Tour and other large tours do for up and coming bands?

Reach The Sky: Expose them to new crowds, ones that normally won't ever bother to check you out, but do like your music.

Question: Explain the process that you went through in recording your newest album? Do you put music to lyrics, or lyrics to music?

Reach The Sky: The songs are written over time and the lyrics come after that. Mostly the lyrics are fit to the music, but sometimes we change the song to fit the lyrics.
