So here's an interview with BoughtXBlood, the Christian metalcore band.
TBD: Who am I speaking to? (For the readers)
BXB: Alvin Triplett. Lead vocals from BoughtXBlood
TBD: Could you give a quick background on the band?
BXB: We started this band in 2013 as a ministry project and what do ya know, we got along enough to record a few EPs and play all over.
TBD: I read you have an EP called Restoration, other than that do you guys have any other releases? Maybe an upcoming release? (And if I may get the name of that release if you have it?)
BXB:Yes we have recently released our new single (40 Stripes) from our soon to be released EP Rebirth//Reanimate. Set for release September 13th
TBD: Have you guys been in any other projects people may have heard of?
BXB: Nothing anyone would recognize
TBD: Are there any other Christian metal or hardcore bands in your area?
BXB: Yes. Our good friends in Pathway Home rep the Hardcore genre. Honestly it's becoming harder and harder to find true Christian bands anymore. It seems like since it becoming less and less popular to love Jesus openly that more and more bands are beginning to hide their belief. I hope this isn't a trend to continues.
TBD: How would you guys describe your sound?
BXB: I would describe our sound as old school thrash with and new school metalcore sound. Kind of Killswitch Engage meets Sevendust meets Lamb of God.
TBD: Is there any plans to release anything on a label? Or are you guys already on a label?
BXB: We have shopped some labels. Honestly there aren't many labels nowadays that want to help a band like us. It seems like labels have became not much more than loan sharks waiting to pick the bones of bands trying to get heard.
TBD: What bands/artists have you been listening to lately?
BXB: I'm really digging Fit for a King and War of Ages. Two of my favorites. I honestly don't like change when it comes to what I listen to. I might listen to the same album for months before changing up.
TBD: Is anything else you would like to say?
BXB: As for saying anything else. If your reading this and have been searching for answers or feel like there's nothing left for you. Remember Jesus died for you and through him all things are possible. With him your never alone. Thanks to all of you who have supported us and to all our news fans welcome to the family and hope to see you on the road.
