Scene Point Blank:What are your thoughts and expectations on MACRoCk, as this is the first year it is being completely student run?

Cory Bise: We're pretty excited about the city taking part and it getting out of the school's hands. Having all these new places as venues sounds incredible. I think we're playing at an Ethiopian restaurant??!? That's rad; much better than a gymnasium.

Scene Point Blank:What bands are you most looking forward to seeing at this year's event?

Cory Bise: All of our friends! The Catalyst especially, they always bring a great energy to a show. Also Pygmy Lush, we've played with them a couple of times and they are just great.

Scene Point Blank:Besides the music, what are you most looking forward to?

Cory Bise: Meeting people. We always enjoy talking to new folks. Some good Ethiopian food will be nice, too.

Scene Point Blank:Antlers and most of its members are no strangers to Harrisonburg's music scene. What are your thoughts on the local independent/punk community?

Cory Bise: A ton of good bands have come out of Harrisonburg in the past and we know some friends that are up to some awesome things right now. There are obviously still a lot of cool kids there putting on house shows and embracing the arts.

Scene Point Blank:What can we expect from Antlers after MACRoCk? Any new releases or tours?

Cory Bise: We're going to start recording some new stuff in April for a 10", play some weekends in June and July and we're embarking on our first lengthy tour with The Catalyst in August. Lots of good things happening.
