I have recently been talking a lot about interviews I have coming up, and three of them are this month. The first for this month, was supposed to be yesterday (August 17) but sometimes life gets in the way.
The Ballyhoo! interview is still happening, but unfortunately, it will be over email now. Originally, the plan was to do this in person, at a show in Sarasota, Florida but Immortal Music had to change such plans. This is due to the fact that, our car decided to drop its axle and attempt to drag it around the mall parking lot for fun two nights before the show and while a new car will be in our possession soon, it was not yet. So, the questions were sent to their press person over email and I will post it as soon as possible.
I hate that this has happened, but it has, and at least they are understanding about it. Luckily, I think everyone understands car issues, because sadly, they are just part of life.
In other interview news, I have sent an email requesting an interview with ATTILA now. This will just be over email, but still pretty exciting. I have yet to receive a real answer, because their press person sent me an automated message saying they are out of the office and would get back to me soon. The message said they were only out of office until the 18 (the day this was posted) so hopefully, they answer me back with a proper answer in the next couple of days.
I also still am waiting on the answers from Adelitas Way and Bayside. I'm seriously getting worried that the questions will be lost in the shuffle of other things and never answered. That might sound like I'm just making things up in my head, but its actually happened before. Nobody is aware of this, but I actually had an interview in 2011 with Memphis May Fire. Don't go look for it, its not on the website. They never answered my questions. I think it was probably over looked, and I had forgotten about it until I was looking through old emails the other day. Its not a big deal with them, as at the time, I don't actually think I knew more than a song or two, but I really want the answers to at least Adelitas Way.
The questions I asked Adelitas Way revolved around the new album, Stuck, and I am genuinely curious as a fan of their music about what they'll say! So, hopefully, I'm not lost in the shuffle, because frankly, I really want the answers.
Uproar Festival 2014 is still happening! My best friend will be driving up with me, and I do plan on vlogging. There's going to be a lot to do with this festival. There'll be a ton of pictures, two interviews, a recap blog, and a vlog all about it. The recap will also be in video form, but the blog will come the very next day. So on August 31, you will get a ton of pictures, a recap blog, and probably one of the interviews. The vlog will be uploaded probably the following Tuesday, and who knows how long it will be. I'll be doing so many things, there's a good chance I will not film a ton, but I will try. I will also try and get Jeremy to vlog from time to time too. Though I cannot promise that he will do it, because I've never gotten him to vlog before, and frankly, most people think its weird. It is weird, but I'm used to it at this point where I just have to make myself do it and then its no big deal.
I probably do not need to tell you again, but just in case you haven't been around, I will do it anyways. The interviews I will be getting at Uproar are Within Reason and Escape The Fate. I am still holding some hope that I might get a last minute interview with someone else, but I'm not holding my breath. I only say I have some hope for it because in 2012, I got an offer for an interview the night before the show, so there might be a possibility. Only ones I have not heard one way or the other from yet are Seether, Redlight King, Godsmack, and Buckcherry. Personally, I am hoping for Redlight King, mostly to see if they remember me from 2012. I didn't interview them, but I did have an interesting encounter with two of the members. I told the story in a video, which you can watch here, if you're interested.
I'm also considering making a video about the "festival essentials" that I personally feel I have. If I do that, that'll be uploaded on the Thursday before Uproar, which is August 28.
So...that's what's going on with me. I will keep you guys posted and I hope you're all doing well. Let me know what you're up to, and if you have any questions for Within Reason or Escape The Fate, send them to me. You can also feel free to send me questions for ATTILA, or Pvris. Just send them to me on the Facebook page, preferably through a message and please make sure to state which band your question is for. I will try my best to ask as many of them as I can, but if I already know the answer or just don't feel its a suitable question, I will let you know. By that, I mean, please don't go, "Can you tell Fronz I love him and ask him how he got so badass?" I don't want to tell any band member anything for you, because it doesn't look good on my part and you should get to tell them yourself! It'll mean more coming from you anyways.
I'm going to go now. Thank you for reading and I seriously do hope you all are well!
