Hi Daniel! How are you doing today?
You all have been in Post Season for about four years now. What is one thing you have learned from each other over the years?
I’m not really sure if there’s one thing in particular but I think that being on the road with multiple view points on issues or just opinions on things as simple as food choices helps you grow as a person and expand your horizons. I feel like there’s tons of things we’ve learned from each other over the years.
You have played some shows with State Champs, Knuckle Puck, and Head North for example. Is there anything you have learned from playing with them in the past?
Every time you play a show with a band that’s grinding you learn a lot… I met the dudes of Head North while I was following Warped Tour and selling CDs to purchase our first van and they were following it as well doing the same to raise money for recording I believe. It’s just cool to talk to people going through the same process as you. I feel like it helps work out the issues you may run into on the road and or may save you from a headache because you exchanged a story that maybe you or the other hand went through before. We’re all just out here doing the same thing ya know.
Your self-titled upcoming record will be released on July 13th. What can you tell us about it?
We spent around a year working on the album before we hit the studio. We wanted to work with Paul Leavitt again because we enjoyed working with him on the split we did with Such A Mess. A close friend of ours got us in touch with Know Hope Records. We hit it off right away and decided to release through them. From there we brought in our friend Justin Graziano on graphic design and put together the art work. It was a project we spent a lot of time on with close friends and we couldn’t be happier with the results.
What made you decide to make this record self-titled instead of having another name?
The current lineup of Post Season has been together for around 4 years now. We work very well together and all offer up an important roll. This is the first full length album we wrote with this lineup. We made it a self title because we feel that this album is Post Season.
How does this upcoming record differ from your previous releases?
I think the main things is the time we put into it. We never rushed previous releases but we always set a date in our heads and stuck to it as close as we could. Normally when you do that a few things end up not exactly how you’d want it. This time we just said lets make sure it’s 100 percent how we want everything.
Before you release music, do you ever get anxious before the release date or are you super confident that your fans will love the sound?
It’s always nerve racking, but we feel very confident people will enjoy this album as much as we did making it.
You all will be touring this summer in honor of the new album. What is one thing you must bring on the road with you?
We will be performing the album in the fall. More details on that soon! But lately, I’ve been playing a lot of Pokemon… so I’m gonna say my Gameboy.
Do you have any final words before your record releases?
You are never alone with music.
