The Myrrors Interview

It's really nice when i interview bands that i have them on my youtube and radio show playlists. One of those bands that my friend Gro Tesque showed to me, is the Myrrors. So, for this one Nik and Grant will answer our questions.First of all, welcome to our music world called Full Throttle (Radio Show). This is your first time here in Greece, how do you feel about that?

Nik & Grant: We're all really excited to be playing in Greece. From what we've heard the people there are extremely welcoming and enthusiastic and we look forward to being able to spend what little free time we have exploring the country!



For the people that don’t know you, how your music trip started as a band?

The two of us formed the band back in high school and recorded our first album "Burning Circles in the Sky" around then, released as handmade CDrs. Since then people seem to have caught onto that record and after a brief hiatus we reformed the band with a sort of rotating lineup several years ago and eventually released some new.

Five-piece band means different influences. Upon which bands are your influences crossed?

Yeah, we're all into different styles of music (that's probably what helps keep things from getting stale) but there are definitely things we all tend to agree on, such as krautrock and Swedish progg like Trad Gras och Stenar or Algarnas Tradgard.

You are from Tucson, Az in U.S.A. how is the local scene there?

Well, very diverse! There's a tight-knit community of artists, writers and musicians back in Tucson that tend to cross-pollinate. It's much more cooperative than it is competitive (Tucson has a very laid back spirit), which I think has helped make some great things happen across the board.

Are there serious opportunities for bands of your genre?

I'm not really sure how the opportunities for whatever genre we fit into might differ from the rest, though we are certainly grateful for whatever opportunities have arisen...things have seemed to mostly happen outside of our control so far, which has been rather incredible.

What inspires you to do what you do?

All sorts of things. Music is really just what we do, and everything in our lives necessarilly has some sort of impact on that, whether it's discovering a new musician, watching a great film, or simply visiting a new place. Hopefully we have a whole new set of inspirations once we're back from two months on the road over here!

In about less than a month your huge European Tour is getting started from Croatia, it’s 2 months tour, try to describe us all the preparations, fears, excitement etc. to make this happen.

It's been pretty crazy preparing for everything and getting everything set up, though from where we are now at the time of writing (having just arrived and en route to our first show in Zagreb) we're feeling a little more rested and comfortable. At this point I think we're all just excited to visit and play in all these new places to all these new faces.


Any plans to record new material after your European Tour?

We're more or less always working on writing and recording new ideas or improvisations at Nik's home studio - we'llactually be premiering some brand new tunes on the road these coming months. We don't have any concrete plans as far as recording anything specific when we get back but I'm certain it will not be long before we get in there and start laying things down.

How you know that is time for a new record?

Well, like I said before it's a constant process of writing, jamming and recording so things tend to naturally evolve and fall into place. Usually things begin either with a rough idea of something we'd like to do, or else we simply accumulate a batch of recordings that we think would make a good LP, single, what have you.

This is our famous “Free Mode” section say whatever you want to finish this interview. We are looking forward for your 3 live performances in Athens at Death Disco 15/10 and Thessaloniki at Rover Bar 14/10 & 16/10 Katerini at Don Kixoths. See you there!

Solidarity with the Greek people struggling to break the chains of  European austerity! We look forward to playing for you, meeting you, and talking with you. Cheers!
