POM RECORDS is going through a content overhaul currently. We've been on a bit of a hiatus but there's a bunch of new stuff coming up including some design changes. Thanks for checking us out!
Randy (POM Records): What exactly is your logic in releasing the band's next album, The Blue Lodge, so soon after your previous effort?
Leslie Kincaid (bassist): The Red Lodge was, in a lot of ways, a very flawed album. Simply put: we rushed it out and then later found that it was... um... I don't know, man - it was just missing something. It was missing that sort of energy that made The White Lodge work. I mean, don't get me wrong - it's a great record, but it's really one-sided. It was a bit boring and the only energy it had was this tense, sort of nervous energy. It was an interesting record, but it was also a very unlistenable record, if you know what I mean. It had no accessibility. The Blue Lodge is an effort to fill in what was missing and create a worthy follow-up to The White Lodge. The Blue Lodge is like the other side of the coin. It was something that needed to be created.
Randy: So you didn't feel entirely comfortable with The Red Lodge?
Leslie: There were a lot of unrefined ideas. Good ideas, definitely, but way unrefined. The Blue Lodge tones back the complexity a bit. It's a much more spacious album, which isn't to say that it's slow-paced - it's probably our "punkiest" record yet. it just... inhabits its time significantly better. It's our shortest record, but it's strong from one side to the other.
Randy: You worked with three artists on this album - Agent Ohoolahan, Chester, and The Random Factor. How was it working with them?
Leslie: It was a breeze. I mean, with Agent's song ("What Happened?") being the single, obviously we feel quite strongly about it. Chester and The Random Factor are also absolutely fantastic artists. "109," is quite possibly my favorite track; it's definitely the one with the most ambition and "meat."
Randy: You dropped the Progressive part of, "Progressive Hard Rock." What's your reasoning behind that move? Marketing?
Leslie: It's just unnecessary. The word, "Progressive," has certain connotations to it that we feel like we've never quite fit under. And even if we did, we aren't going in that direction anymore.
Randy: Why is this Lodge blue?
Leslie: Beyond Blue being on the opposite end of the spectrum to red; it's also because this album has a feeling of "airiness" to it. Red is an erratic colour. Blue is a more relaxed, more focused colour. It also probably has something to do with my favorite colour being Blue.
Randy: Correct me if I'm wrong, but the track, "Nunc Anima Mea," is an older track from before even The White Lodge, correct?
Leslie: Correct. It's one of the best things we've done, honestly. Obviously it's been reworked slightly, but it was a surprisingly good fit regardless. It's a pattern really, on every release we tend to have one or two refitted songs from our past. Reworking old songs is a great way to find direction.
Randy: To wrap up, what are the band's immediate plans for the future?
Leslie: Probably another Lodge, among other things. We've finished three albums this year, imperfect though they may be. We aren't planning on stopping any time soon. Probably take a bit of a break, though. Don't want to die and such.
There you have it, ladies and gentlemen. This Band is Full of Spiders will be dropping their third album later this year on POM Records. Be on the look out!
Zenester: So I heard you're going to be making a documentary. What's your documentary going to cover?
FC: It's going to cover the whole story of the band from when it started up until today, stuff from the band that people don't know about, how it all started. Basically just letting all FC info out.
Zenester: What are some things to look out for?
FC: So far, look out for somethings that are going to be teased in the credits, album stuff, a lot. But we are going to leave a surprise for FC fans at the end.
Zenester: For a refresher, can you explain the history of Faceless Culture?
FC: You'll have to find out about that when the movie comes out around Summer 2014.
Zenester: Haha, alright. Now, what was the band's greatest accomplishment?
FC: It had to be between 80+ downloads from Untamed on POM Records or making this film.
Zenester: And would you say that Untamed would be the album that FC is the most proud of?
FC: Somewhat yes, but later on an album is going to top that.
Zenester: What is your new album going to be like?
FC: It's going to bring both FC and Redemption back in one, 8 new FC tracks, 8 re-made Redemption tracks, and 3 bonus tracks.
Zenester: So many surprises! When will it be released or is that yet to be announced?
FC: It is yet to be announced but we'll go ahead and tell y'all, THIS MONTH.
Zenester: Can't wait! Next question. How has your touring been?
FC: The Road to Redemption tour? We haven't got to it yet, we need more bands.
Zenester: How many more bands?
FC: As many as we can get, we're going across the world!
Zenester: I hope that gets accomplished? Now, you have a strong reputation ever since you got signed. When you were first signed to POM records, how did you feel or what was it like to be on a record label?
FC: We felt stoked! POM Records was the first record we ever got our music out there. Also, our first FC album was posted on there. And to see the downloads stacking up, we felt we made an impact so early in our career. It puts your name out there, it build up fans, confidence, and dedication.
Zenester: What's your favorite thing about being in a band?
FC: We get to bring more metal to metal fans, and get fans. We also love to interact with them, share stuff and get ideas from them.
Zenester: That's great! As for Faceless Culture, what are your plans for the future?
FC: A lot, more on that later on.
Zenester: Like, any new music videos?
FC: Yes, planning on one right now.
Zenester: What song is it going to be for?
FC: We're keeping it a secret but it's coming out soon!
Zenester: Neat! I'm gonna conclude the interview and here's the last question, is there anything else we should know?
FC: 3, just think about it.
Zenester: 3 years? 3 albums? 3 seems vague to me but it sure seems to be worth the wait! Thanks for the interview!
FC: You're welcome!
