Interview: Wait For the Day
This week I spoke to Christian Metalcore band, Wait for the Day! I'd like to thank them for taking the time to do the interview and I'd like to thank Luke Weeks (you remember him) for bringing the band to my attention! Excited to share this one! It's been awhile since we've gotten an interview on here. So enjoy!
TBD: Could you give a quick background on the band?
WFTD: We started writing music back around the beginning of 2014, and at that time, it was just Chase, and me (Nick) and we didn't really do much besides get together on weekends, and write every once in a while, and then after that, Chase said he had a friend named Kovy who could sing for us, so we played a few shows at our church later that year, with another friend filling in on bass. Not long after that Kovy met Doug, and he joined in on vocals, and Kovy switched to guitar!
WFTD: We have one EP that we release in September called Admit Change, it's 4 songs long, and it's up on all major music outlets, like iTunes, Spotify, etc. We just finished up a new single last week, that's being mixed and mastered right now. We haven't set a release date yet, but we will soon!
TBD: Can we get the name of that?
WFTD: Let me get back to you on the name of it once Doug gets here because he hasn't thought of a name yet haha.
TBD: Ok lol. So you guys are from Ohio correct?
WFTD: Yes! From the Columbus area
TBD: Cool, I'm from Indiana. About an hour or 2 away from there. There seems to be a great scene out there, like Convictions or Before Their Eyes. I hear Settle the Sky is reuniting. Have you guys played with any of these bands, and if not would you want to?
WFTD: Nice! And yeah, we have! Convictions is definitely one of my personal favorite bands, I've liked them for a while before they signed to InVogue!
TBD: Oh yeah Convictions is pretty awesome. What are some other Christian metal and hardcore bands in your area?
WFTD: In the local scene? not really, besides Luke Week's band :/
TBD: Really? You guys and As Earth Fades are the only two?
WFTD: That are Christian, and I'm aware of. there's a ton of other hardcore, and a few other metalcore bands, but as far as i know, we're the only Christian ones haha.
TBD: Luke seems really enjoy you guys. Have you guys played a show with them or did you play at a show he booked?
WFTD: Yeah we've played one show with them!
TBD: Ok. I read an article about you guys today and it said y'all were in high school. Now this article was written in 2013, so nowadays you guys are probably college age. How old are you guys?
WFTD: I'm the only one out of high school. the rest of them are all a senior or juniors!
TBD: Oh ok. What bands / artists have you been listening to lately?
WFTD: A lot of us have been listening to the new Architects, Fit For A King, and Invent, Animate records, along with Beartooth and Redeem/Revive!
TBD: Oh yeah? Speaking of Fit for a King and Invent Animate, you guys are playing a show with then soon right?
WFTD: Yeah we are! It's march 15th! We sooo excited for it!
TBD: Sounds awesome! That'd be pretty awesome to witness. Do guys think of the band as a ministry or just a band?
WFTD: Definitely as a ministry. Doug makes a point to talk about Jesus every show we play!
TBD: Is there anything else you'd like to say?
WFTD: I think that's everything!
TBD: Alright! Thanks for talking to me guys! I appreciate you taking the time.
WFTD: No problem man! Thanks for hitting us up! :)
That was Wait for the Day! Go follow these guys. And if you're in the Indianapolis/Ohio area go to that show with Wait for the Day, Invent Animate, Fit for a King, Fit for a Autopsy, Emmure, and After the Burial. Bring the house down!
