dig two graves interview main

Heavy rock ‘n’ roll 4-piece from Somerville, New Jersey that combines visual kei and western metalcore. Here’s a chat with guitarist Jaybee and drummer Kenny…

How did you get the title of your latest single ‘Wick’, and what does it mean to you?
Jaybee: I thought it sounded edgy, like something Shadow the Hedgehog would say.

What was the hardest part about putting this release together, and why?
Kenny: Getting Mike to stop screaming so loud.
J: Digestive issues.

Who produced the release, and how would you say they helped shape it?
J: King Bryce Kariger of Rigorous Recordings. Homie trapped it out and made it thick.
K: He really trapped out ‘As Above’ though.

What do you want the listener to take away from hearing your music?
K: I want them to be like, “Damn, that was cool and nice.”
J: I hope they hate it.

How does a track normally come together for the band? Can you tell us a bit about that process?
K: Josh usually writes most of it and then we all add our parts on top.
J: Ya, that’s me.

How would you say that the sound of your band has changed over the last year?
J: We care even less now poggers.
K: We decided to go in a more rock and roll direction instead of metal.

What bands/artists have influenced you the most since you started your own band/project, and why?
J: Kero Kero Bonito and Dir En Grey are the primary influences for our future material. We’re going in a more chungus direction.
K: We just want to sound like Kanye West meets 100 Gecs.

When the world is back to normal, where would you really like to tour, and why?
J: I want to go to Sweden so I can see Kerbera and my E-Friends.
K: Europe sounds sick.

If you could only pick one track for our reader to listen to, to get a taster of your music, which one would you go for, and why?
J: Listen to ‘As Above’ – it really gets the juices flowing.
K: I would say ‘Wick’. It hits different.

Where do you see your band in five years’ time?
J: Half of us dead and forgotten, the other two, legends. No idea who is which.
K: Having way more money than we know what to do with.

The single ‘Wick (Son of Michel Remix)’ by Dig Two Graves is out now.
