Interview: The Worshiper
So today, you get to hear from The Worshiper about their upcoming EP, Reveal Us! They are located in North Carolina, so if you live over that way, go see a show!
TBD: Who am I Speaking to? (For the readers)
The Worshiper: You are speaking to the terrible, trying to make music, loud and obnoxious band called The Worshiper.
TBD: Could you give a quick background on the band?
The Worshiper: We are a Christian Metalcore band from the Mountains of NC. We all came together to pursue our passion for music. In that pursuit, we also wanted our music to have an impact on people's lives. To shed light and hope to those who need it most and reach out to broken people.
TBD: You guys have the song "Voidless" and the upcoming Reveal Us correct?
The Worshiper: That is correct!
TBD: "Voidless" is on Reveal Us right?
The Worshiper: Yes! We had such an amazing reaction from our awesome fans, it's only fair to give them the song on our EP!
TBD: "Voidless" made it on a sampler put out by some idiot (me). The sampler has received a lot of good feedback. People said that they loved all the bands, including yourself, were amazing! Hopefully you guys got some followers from that! How has that been on your side? Has anyone contacted you guys about the sampler?
The Worshiper: Thank you and we are glad people digged us! We have been getting a lot of attention lately. The sampler ( we wouldn'tdoubt) has probably played a good role in our following. No one specifically has contacted us in regards to the sampler or on its behalf but again there are probably people who have checked us out from the sampler.
TBD: I believe I read that they artwork on Reveal Us was done by Sean McCulloch of Phinehas. Is that correct?
The Worshiper: You don't need glasses! HAHA! Sean from Phinehas did do the artwork for our EP! We are so honored and blessed for that.
TBD: How did you get that worked out?
The Worshiper: It was actually a pretty easy process as far as reaching out to him. He posted an awesome picture on his Instagram with a caption telling people message him for artwork. So we did, we sent him an email, he responded very quickly. He was very nice and eager to help us. He is one of the nicest dudes in the industry and Phinehas is one of our favorite bands. Everything worked out perfect!
TBD: Is there any plans to release the EP on a label? Maybe with your connection with Sean of Phinehas, maybe Artery would put it out....?
The Worshiper: We are going to Independently Release "Reveal Us". Most labels are looking full length albums because of the cost to release an EP or Full Length is near the same. Once we release this EP, we do plan to start shopping some labels.
TBD: What other Christian heavy bands are in your area? You guys are located in North Carolina right? If I'm right wasn't Blessed By The Broken (RIP 2016) over that way?
The Worshiper: Blessed By The Broken is over this way. We actually played a show with them on the I The Breather farewell tour with Forevermore. They are amazing dudes and have such a great sound! Awesome band!!! There are a few Christian Metal bands in surrounding areas. Check out our boys in Bought X Blood and Pathway Home. They are two unbelievable bands from VA!
TBD: What have you guys been listening to?
The Worshiper: The new Silent Planet album of course! That and of course Phinehas, Darkness Divided, Convictions, August Burns Red, and Forevermore! All of these amazing bands have just released the best albums the metal industry has ever heard of! We are also waiting for Fit for a King to release their new album in October.
TBD: Is there anything else you would like to say?
The Worshiper: First we thank God for His amazing love and blessings He has bestowed upon us and our endeavors. We would like to say thank you for doing this interview. Thank you to all of our fans from the bottom of our hearts for the support and sticking by us. We are beyond excited to release this EP and give back to those who have given so much to us. We love all of you and none of this is possible without the amazing support we have received.
So that was The Worshiper! They are an amazing Metalcore band and could be the next big thing! Go support those guys! And download that sampler! (Go to Home Page)
