    “I think the thing is about The Bay City Rollers and the kind of thing that we did was such a brilliant thing, it was like a crazy thing we stopped traffic over there in Australia, we had hundreds of thousands of fans follow us regularly and they’re special memories for me that’s for sure…” From Release: Scotland’s greatest pop […]

    “I didn’t have anything to lose and wasn’t holding a gun to anybody’s head, so I thought fuck man I’ll give it a crack and it’ll be a cool experience at the very least and at the most come back with a cool record that people want to listen to and that I’m really proud of and a cool story […]

    “I’ll actually do my best to play all of the songs that I feel people have heard before because as much as I want to expose people to new music and want to act artsy and stuff like that I think it’s my first job as an artist to play my fans the music that they’re here to hear first […]

    “… it’s just a place to release emotions and deal with all the negative stuff going on in your life and celebrating all the good stuff you’ve got going on in your life, and that’s what our shows are all about. I’ll say it’s a big release you know, release of tension and just taking the power back in your […]

    “So having that kind of team behind us gives us a bigger platform to stand on, and for me the whole point of being on this label is to get our music and get us in front of more people that have maybe never heard of us before. I say this all the time, we have a million fans out […]

    “I think that it was always in the back of our minds that we wanted something different and new and fresh, I don’t think we really knew what that meant, I don’t think we knew that it would be a darker moodier album per se, but yeah from the beginning we knew we didn’t want to do a straight through […]

    “…we’ve got so much history and the ego thing’s kind of been left behind we just want to get out there and showcase the fact that great Australian pub rock didn’t end in the mid to late ‘80’s, we came along and kicked it in the butt in the early 90’s and hopefully we were able to fly the flag […]

    “…I’m always struggling with myself to try and define those new ideas, those fresh things that happen spontaneously in the spirit of inspiration which is what I’m into on the drums, it’s not all about the written parts or the composed parts it’s about what you can bring to it, what energy you can bring to it, your expressive purpose.” […]

    “So we don’t play it note for note the way the guys did back in the day or sort of try to mimic it or anything like that, we just really get inside of it and make it our own at the same time respecting it as part of the tradition of popular music I guess.” From Release: The Music […]

    “Filter is a band that looks at the worst things in society and says why and what is that and let’s talk about this strange phenomenon that is humanity. You know, a guy holds a press conference and blows his head off I want to understand that and I want to sing it from a perspective of his perspective.” From […]

    “I mean it’s a lot more musical freedom and we’re building something from the ground up and it’s a whole different group of friends and a different kind of vibe, it’s a whole new experience of building a band again from the jump and for me that’s the fun part it’s the chase…” From release: Hell or Highwater, featuring Atreyu […]

    “Brother Firetribe it’s all about positive vibes, it’s melodic rock music to the max, I mean what we’re always after is to put out a song that makes you do push ups *laughs*, makes you want to go running, I don’t know. It’s all about the hooks, the big sound and good vibes and if you put on a Brother […]

    “What hasn’t changed is that it’s still very melodic, atmospheric and still very heavy and it’s got something for progressive metal fans, it’s got something for rock fans, and something possibly for electronic and pop fans as well. I think it just continues that symbiosis of melody and heaviness that I think Voyager is so renowned for.” From Release: VOYAGER’S […]
