I’m really excited for Skinhead Rob’s (The Transplants) new punk band Bury The Hatchet and what kickass music will be created. Bury The Hatchet recently release their first single “Cyanide Serenade” which takes you back to good ol’ OG punk music. Stay dialed in as more music will be available 12/13/11!! For now get your free download of “Cyanide Serenade.”
Pop-Punk, thrash…whatever you want to classify their music as, So Many Ways is delivering a melodic aggressive punk sound that will surely catch your attention and keep you engaged. Colin Corley (vocals), Jason Mibank (guitar/vocals), Murphy Welch (guitar/vocals), Keith Dow (drums), and Chris Catterson (bass) have just released their self titled EP “So Many Ways” on Mightier Than Sword Records. I had the pleasure to throw a few questions out to lead singer Colin Corley!
Joey: Fellas what’s happening? Please introduce yourselves and tell us how long the current line-up has been together?
Colin: Hey man! My name is Colin and I sing/yell for So Many Ways. Our lineup has gone through a few members changes over the near-three year existance of the band, but the current lineup has been together since last June. Our bass player Chris was in the band for a while, moved back to his home state of Florida, but finally returned to us around May. And I must say that we are incredibly happy that he’s back. I don’t believe our lineup could be any more solid then it is now.
Joey: I was stoked to listen to your recently release self title album So Many Ways! I’m a huge fan of punk and your music is so on point! Tell us more about the album and what inspired the song writing?
Colin: Thank you so much man! We’re so glad you dig it. With this EP, we really wanted to evolve and push ourselves musically. We wanted to move in a different direction and I think we accomplished that. When we start writing our full length soon, we’re going to try to push ourselves even further and try even more new things.
Joey: What bands have been most influential in your music?
Colin: If you asked this question to each member of the band, you would get five completely different answers. For me, the vocalists that have had the most influence on me are Tim Armstrong, Keith Buckley, Toby Morse, Jordan Pundik, Jason Shevchuk, Greg Puciato and Pat Flyn.
Joey: What three words best describe your live show?
Colin: Destroy. Chaos. Pizza.
Joey: What two bands would be on your dream tour?
Colin: For me personally, I would love to tour with Rancid and New Found Glory, two of my favorite bands ever.
Joey: Thanks so much fellas? Any final words or shout outs?
Colin: Thank you for wanting to talk to us! I would definitely like to shout out some incredible bands that I think everyone should check out: Late In The Playoffs, Bayonet, Cave Bear, Stay Ahead Of The Weather, and Revocation.
