Dark Days: Your Demise Interview
The Dark Days festival, focusing on the hottest new talent around, will take place on April 11th and we caught up with Your Demise to see what they had to say about their slot! Get your tickets for Dark Days!
How is the London crowd for you? And how do you think you’ll go down with the all-agers crowd?
George Noble (vocals): “I would have to say that I really don’t know how we’ll go down here. It’ll be absolutely awesome but in honesty we’ve never played a matinee or all ages show in London. That doesn’t mean I’m not looking forward to it cos I’m bursting to play it! I can’t think of anything as positive as all ages shows. Hopefully a good lot of our usual crowd will be along which usually goes mental!”
What’s your career highlight?
George: “Probably all of it. I wouldn’t as such call this a career as I’m pretty sure I’d get thrown out my house if I did haha, but we’re making a go of it eh! I really can’t pick anything out in particular, but this has literally been all like a dream for me. I think from day one I hadn’t even expected a thing to come out of it… But I’ve made friends worldwide, Met my girlfriend, Played with heroes, played to crowds I can’t believe, seen some beautiful countries that I’d never have gone to otherwise. Most probably meeting my girlfriend was the best though haha.”
And career lowlight?
George: “Countless nervous breakdowns on one single tour or prison in Belgium… You fucking choose hahaha.”
What have you got in store for the mini-fest crowd? Anything special?
George: “It’s the first time we’ll be playing a LOT of new stuff… Most the new material off Ignorance Never Dies and I’m sure we’ll have to sort out some pyrotechnics or something haha. Obviously not but we’re gonna hopefully pull it the fuck out the bag after not playing for a fair long while. It’ll be a real good warm up for tour and we’re well on for having a fucking great time.”
What are you most looking forward to about the day?
George: “The fact it’s happening! The fact that anything like this has even materialized is just absolutely incredible. Not only giving some of the UKs best talent a chance to get to a new crowd… You’re giving the UKs younger crowd a chance to see and be part of a show that they wouldn’t get for at least another couple years or maybe even more in some cases! It’s these types of shows that make memories for kids to start bands and really get involved in hardcore/metal/punk real early on. Real positive day for me.”
