After a short conference call with the band that established a) I suck at interviews and b) the band are not fire-breathing madmen that live in caves and paint song lyrics in blood, I sent them some follow up questions. The following are THOSE questions.
Where do you see yourselves as a band in 5 years?
Writing songs and playing shows, a little more handsome.
What do you do to overcome boredom on the road?
I like podcasts, Angel reads a lot, Justin Sleeps and Trent gets far out. Usually I’m driving so podcasts keep me entertained. I’m subscribed to about 15 of them.
What makes a great music scene?
People who care about music, and bands, and like to come out to the shows and support their friends and spread the word. Bands that care about the scene and the fans, that want to put out good music and stand out in their own way.
What kind of person is going to love Hudu Akil?
Basically anyone who grew up on hard rock/heavy metal and all the great subgenres of the two like we did. We got into playing music because we loved what we listened to growing up and we make the kind of music we want to hear so it’s like taking the baton and running your leg of the relay.
Who are you looking forward to seeing at Blood Nasty 5?
Definitely The Boleys, Naga Brujo, DayEater, Holy Death Trio and The Dogwood People, Those are all friends of ours and we love playing shows with them when we can.
There is an ongoing joke between my friend Gary and I. Gary believes that you can tell how good a band is by their shoes. So the question is what kind of shoes are you wearing? And what will that tell about your band?
The shoes we’re wearing are made for walking, and this band is gonna walk off the earth!
Do you have a special message for all those attending Blood Nasty 5?
Just want everyone to come out and have a good time. This is going to be an awesome show, the property is beautiful, the bands are great! It’s going to be a special night!
If you could jam with one Blood Nasty 5 band who would it be?
Holy Death Trio
If your band dissolved and you could join any Blood Nasty 5 band on tour for a month who would it be?
Holy Death Trio
How would you feel if you learned Darth Vader was your dad?
Favorite breed of dog?
I’ve always had Pit Bulls. They’re very loyal. My girl is 6 years old now. We love her to death.
