FACE TO FACE EXCLUSIVE
We are here with Trevor from the punk rock band FACE TO FACE. Thank you for taking the time to do an interview with us.
1: Could you tell us about your new album Protection?
It's a record with one foot rooted firmly in the past of the band with our early sound and the other in the present which is a culmination of our 25 years experience as a band
2: On Protection, you worked with Bill Stevenson and Jason Livermore, what was it like working with them and what did they bring to the table to help you record?
Bill brought a lot of great arrangement and melody ideas and Jason just made it look easy to get a great sounding mix. They are both really talented
3: You guys recorded the new album at the Blasting Room in Fort Collins, Colorado. Can you walk us through a day in the studio and any challenges you might have come across?
Wake up drink a gallon of coffee, Bill shows up usually super hyper because he had already had a gallon of coffee and then get right down to the work. We had a lot of fun, but we were all very focused on our work
4: What made you guys decide to go back to Fat Wreck Records
It's the best punk rock label
5: How did you like working with Fat Mike and Fat Wreck Chords?
Mike gave us the ability to make out re or show we wanted to, but he also had just enough involvement for us to know he cared about it
6: The band has been around since 1991, did you ever think that Face To Face would ever be around for this long?
Not really no
7: It is noted that you guys broke up in 2005 to pursue different projects/interests. Did you know you guys would get back together 3 years later?
Absolutely not but life is unpredictable
8: Do you remember fondly of the fans reaction when you played that reunion show?
Yeah it was pretty amazing. Nothing else like it
9: Do you find there is a resurgence in the punk scene?
I have know idea
10: You've done a little bit of touring in Europe and obviously North America. Where are some of the places you would like to tour that you haven’t played yet?
China, Russia, Cuba
