Axis and Seraph the Light as one

Axis and Seraph the Light as one

Axis and Seraph The Light have announced a joint EP and tour where the two bands will take the stage and play as one. The EP will come out sometime in 2017 on Good Fight Music and was produced by Torche's Jon Nunez and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Author & Punisher).

Tommy Cantwell of Axis adds the following statement:

We wanted to bring a lot of different influences into the songs since we all listen to very different types of music. The obvious influences are bands like Cult of Luna, Neurosis, Isis, and stuff like that. But also some not-so-obvious bands like Queens of the Stone Age and Chelsea Wolfe... Having eight people onstage all at once was pretty wild and definitely different than our regular set. We're really looking forward to this tour in December.

In December the two bands will hit the road, performing the new songs together onstage.

Bands 1QI: Drunk Couples, Holy White Hounds, Karen Haglof

Posted Aug. 29, 2016, 2:03 p.m. in Bands by Cheryl

1QI: Drunk Couples, Holy White Hounds, Karen Haglof

Welcome to our almost daily quickie Q&A feature: One Question Interviews. Follow us at facebook & twitter and we'll post an interview three days ...

Andrew Barnes (Drunk Couples – drums)
SPB: Drunk Couples is a departure in sound from your previous project. Do you find it challenging to separate the different styles or associations that come with changing bands?
Andrew: It all came pretty naturally to totally shift musical gears when CJ and I started Drunk Couples. Not only is this band a different setup as far as who plays what instrument, but we also felt like we took our old band Gifts From Enola as far as we wanted to go with the sound that we established and tinkered with over the years. Ever since that band broke up, it's been pretty easy for all four band members to hit the reset button on what kind of musical outlets we wanted to explore. In the case of Drunk Couples we just wanted to write no-frills songs that were loud, fun, gritty, and a little sassy. Who knows what it'll turn into as long as we keep the band going and things evolve, but it's a vibe that feels right for now.
James Manson (Holy White Hounds)
SPB: How do you find out about new bands or music that you enjoy?
James: I think that the first bands that made an impact on my life left a bread crumb trail of artists and records that I ended up diving into because of the admiration I had for those first bands. My music discovery seems to have manifested because of a few different but similar platforms (iTunes Genius, Spotify, Pandora, etc) some more effective and/or enjoyable than others.
Music consumption has evolved and so has my overall taste in music. I think the two go hand in hand. Being a touring musician, I've definitely learned to trust my friends and fans taste in music. I listen to their suggestions whenever I get the chance. Being a fan of rock music my whole life, I know what I like and what I don't like. Staying open-minded has made music much more enjoyable as a whole for me. Sometimes, I'll even go to whatever record store is close by and buy whatever looks cool. 
Karen Haglof
SPB: After much time away from music, you've released 2 records in 3 years. Why the rush of new material after such a delay?
Karen: Yes, I did spent years away from music, going to school and entering a different career. But once the bug to play hit again, and I climbed the fairly steep learning curve of doing all my own material and current day recording, I didn't see any reason not to continue making songs and putting them out. I hope to go on that way for some time...No specific timeframe, though. The next focus is to play live.

Bands 1QI: Atoms and Void, Peter Case, Pkew Pkew Pkew

1QI: Atoms and Void, Peter Case, Pkew Pkew Pkew

Welcome to our almost daily quickie Q&A feature: One Question Interviews. Follow us at facebook & twitter and we'll post an interview three days ...

Eric Fisher and Arlie Carstons (Atoms and Void)
SPB: When collaborating with so many artists, how do you draw the determine when to allow a “guest improv” vs pre-composed music?
Eric & Arlie: Our approach to recording is both guided and spontaneous, and our reasons for working with a specific musician (or combination of musicians) are always very intentional. There are really no “guest improv” moments. Rather, in some ways we sort of work like conductors. We always have an idea of what we want the mood, tempo and arrangement of a song to be— often writing and recording the song’s basic structure and then talking with each other about which session player(s) would be best for additional instrumentation on certain songs and in specific spots. Each musician approaches his/her instrument differently, which makes it possible for our songs to sidestep easy categorizations of genre or style. We strive to record with folks that can interpret our ideas in ways that allow for spontaneity and stylistic nuances. Basically, it’s all about trust and communication. We’re blessed to have these people and their creative minds in our lives. 
Peter Case
SPB: I just finished reading the book you released in 2006, As Far As You Can Get Without A Passport, loved it and your stories of your youth as you made your way to California. Any chance you will be adding to it or writing a complete autobiography in the future?
Peter: Well, yes, I did write hundreds of pages of stories from that time, about finding my way in the music world, and I DO hope to see it published. And I even have some interest from the people who did the first one, but we'll just have to see. I need some time to finish it, and being a musician is pretty demanding time-wise, so I'll just say ASAP! If there was some way I could be freed up for a month or two to get the manuscript in shape, and write some more etc... could happen sooner rather than later. A lot of people have been asking. I'll do it as soon as I can!
Emmett (Pkew Pkew Pkew – bass/vocals)
SPB: Winter touring in Canada: yes or no?
Emmett: Definitely tour in the winter in Canada. Sure you have to take it easy on the roads, but you can just leave all your beers in the van the entire time and they stay cold!
