Music Junkie Press: Thank you for taking the time out to talk with us here at Music Junkie Press. First we would like to get a bit of history on ReVerbed, How and when did you guys form?

ReVerbed: We’ve been a band for just over 5 years now, myself, George and Josh met during secondary school and college. After being in other bands previously we decided to form one together. Then during University we met Joe and he joined us on bass about 18 months ago, and we’ve been going strong together ever since.

Music Junkie Press:  ReVerbed has a great energetic sound and we are glad to see more pop punk bands making their presence known! What are some of the most influential artists that inspired you with your music?

ReVerbed: Thank you very much! We all grew up listening to bands such as Blink-182, Sum 41, Taking Back Sunday, so we are influenced by them greatly. We love energetic and passionate sounding music so we hope to include that in our songs too.

Music Junkie Press: What are you currently working on and do you have an album or EP out as of yet? (if so, send us links on where our audience can purchase)

ReVerbed: We released our latest mini album ‘This Machine’ in November last year which you can download it from the usual places, iTunes, Spotify etc. and purchase physical copies from reverbed.co.uk We are now already working on our next release, and will be recording over the Summer, and it’s set to be released at the end of the year.

Music Junkie Press: We have seen that you have completed several tours in your area, what can we expect from a live show of ReVerbed?

ReVerbed: Lots of energy, aggression, passion and a lot of sweat! We always pride ourselves on our live performance’s, giving 110% every show, we want our audience to know we’re enjoying it just as much as they are.

Music Junkie Press:  Do you have any plans for coming to the US or do you have any tour announcements that you would like for us to share?

ReVerbed: We would love to come to the States eventually and hopefully it won’t be too long! For now though we’re sticking to the UK and hopefully be visiting more of Europe again this Summer, you can keep up to date with our shows on our website and social networking pages.

Music Junkie Press: Do you all collaborate on the writing or do you have a particular songwriting process?

ReVerbed: George is the main songwriter in the band. He comes to us with the main ideas of a song and then we all work together and add our own individual parts. Myself and George often collaborate during the lyric writing process and then we all work on the finishing touches of the songs as a band.

Music Junkie Press:  You have a song that I checked out that I really enjoy, called Shine A Light, can you tell me more about it?

ReVerbed: Great to hear you like it, thank you! It was written during an interesting time for us, we were definitely finding our sound and the direction we wished to take. It was the first time we released a single independently and that’s what the song is about. It represents finding ourselves, our independence and a place we feel like we finally belong to.

Music Junkie Press: If you could put your dream lineup together for ReVerbed, what three bands would you put on the bill with you?

ReVerbed: Very difficult question as we all love some many different bands. If I was pick though I would say : Biffy Clyro, Blink-182 & Foo Fighters. They’re 3 bands we all collectively enjoy.

Music Junkie Press: We at Music Junkie Press are very strong believers on how music can help, heal or inspire us, can you recall a particular time where music was most there for you and can you share a bit about?

ReVerbed: Music is pretty much everything to all of us in ReVerbed. It brought us together in the first place and made all of us family. For me personally it has helped me through many times, there’s always a song or band for every mood I’m in and it has been more comforting than anything else I’ve ever experienced.

Music Junkie Press:  Lastly, what would ReVerbed like to share with our audience?

ReVerbed: Our gratitude and appreciation for checking us out and hopefully we will see some of you in the future. Also you can check out a recent cover we did of ‘Maneater’ by Nelly Furtado –

 

 

Thank you for your time and we look forward to spreading the word about your album and your music!

ReVerbed: Thanks very much guys!
