Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life are proud to bring you an interview with South Florida’s Fero Lux.
“We won’t suffer your dagger. We won’t suffer a noose.”
1. How did you get started as a band?
Hey! Well we got started when we were all conned by our guitarist, David, who said this would be a Beastie Boys cover band. At our first practice he busts out these crazy riffs and we were like…”why the hell not?”
The rest is history.
2. How would you describe your sound?
I, personally, always tell people it’s “mathy post-hardcore”. Some people get what that means, some people don’t. For those who I know won’t understand that, I say “we just make a bunch of fuckin’ noise, man!”
3. What bands/artists would you say have influenced your style of music?
At The Drive-In, Thursday, Glassjaw, Poison The Well, Botch, Dillinger Escape Plan, Meshuggah, and the like.
4. Has the rise of YouTube & music streaming helped or hindered you as a band?
A little of both honestly. The industry, at the moment, is certainly a stick with poo on both ends. It’s cool that people all over the world can check us out if they wish, but I also think with the amount of content on the net, it’s a lot harder for people to come across ours. There’s a lot to be said about the matter, but in short it’s great in a lot of ways, and horrendous in a lot of others.
5. What do you enjoy doing when you’re not making music?
Not eating animals.
6. What are your future plans musically? Tours?
Well, we have a few things we’ll be announcing in the coming weeks musically. So keep an eye out! And as far as touring, we’ll be traveling a bit in June and July. Hopefully with our friends Dead Empires if they get their shit together. 😉
We’d like to thank Fero Lux for taking the time to speak with us & Stencil PR for arranging it. You can find out more about the band on Facebook & Twitter. You can pick up some of their music on Bandcamp & check some of it out on YouTube.
