INTERVIEW: Brightside Play ‘Would You Rather’

It’s been less than a year since I was first introduced to Brightside, and the time I’ve spent getting to know them is even shorter. But these are two facts that I tend to forget quite often.

The best way to describe them is “approachable.” They will have a conversation with anyone who walks up to them. Literally anyone. The amount of interruptions that will occur during…

Thanks so much for taking the time to speak with me! Let’s dive right into it—what is the proudest accomplishment of your band’s career this far? A: My pleasure! There are actually two answers to that – I’d say the largest tangible accomplishment we’ve had so far was being chosen for Substream Magazine’s “Substream Approved” section earlier this year, especially so soon into our existence as a band. Eva and I are both super proud of that. However, on the more personal side of things – the thing I’m proudest…

Warped Tour 2017 Interview: Lions Lions

How’s it going?! How’d you enjoy your Warped Tour experience this year in Mansfield? It seems to rain every year, but this year was intense! Joshua Herzer (Vocals): It’s always an honor to join Warped Tour, even for just a day.
