Posted 3 years ago by Joel Funk
Every week here on 36vultures, we try to sit down with some of our favorite bands for a quick and lighthearted interview. This week, we got to sit down with the guys from Choir Vandals. The guys have a new EP coming out on October 28th. Click through to hear two of their four new songs, while you find out their ten Flashback Friday moments. 

Band 5

  1. Where/When was your bands first show? How did that go?
  2. Our first show was at The Firebird in St. Louis with Everything Went Black. We had a really good response, considering the diversity of the bands we played with.
  3. Did you guys play any covers? If so, of what?
    No, we have never covered anything. We talk about it a lot, but it never happens.
  4. What was the first song you guys wrote as a band? Is it on any of your releases?
    An Honest Conversation. It’s on Darker Things.
  5. Did your band ever have a different name?
    We never had a different name, but we didn’t have a name at all until after we recorded our first EP.
  6. When did you decide that making music was something you really wanted to pursue?
    It was probably after the first song I ever wrote. That was in the sixth grade. It was such a cool feeling that I just kept writing more and more songs.

Personal 5

  1. What is the first band you remember getting really, really into
    It was probably Sum 41. I had a CD of All Killer No Filler that I listened to so much that it broke in my Walkman.
  2. What was the first album you bought?
    Juturna by Circa Survive. A friend sent me a couple of songs from the record, so I went out and bought it. Getting to see the album art and looking at the lyrics while I listen to it was really cool.
  3. What was the first show you went to?
    My brother in law took me to The Taste of Chaos tour in the fifth grade. It was Deftones, Thursday, Thrice, As I Lay Dying, and The Receiving End of Sirens.
  4. Favorite One Hit Wonder? If you don’t have one, then Favorite song not from this decade?
    Al Green’s ’How Can You Mend a Broken Heart.’ It’s not a one hit wonder, but it’s the only hit you’ll ever need.
  5. Favorite movie? If you can recall, favorite line?
    The Virgin Suicides. I don’t have a favorite line, but the scene where the boys and girls are calling each other and playing records over the phone is my favorite part.
