Today, we sat down with the members of Call of the Void to see what they’ve been up to recently. The band has seen moderate success since they’ve been signed, and fans have been wondering what their plans for the future are like. Here’s what they had to say.
Lincoln: For real though, it’s been such a cool experience! I’m pretty sure the owner’s trying to screw us over, but I guess that’s the music industry for you.
Randy: Don’t worry, they try to screw everyone over. I only get paid a pack of cigs for this interview. Anyways, in the time you’ve been here, you’ve reached two Bronze Stars! How does it feel?
Park: Pretty good! They’re no platinum stars, but I guess they’ll do for now.
Chris: Hey, I’m just happy people are listening to them at all. When we released Still Standing, I didn’t really expect anyone would want to listen to it. So to get any kind of certification was great news to me.
Randy: How do you feel about your releases so far? Is there anything in particular that stands out to you? Anything you wish you could change?
Dennis: I’d say we all kind of have varying feelings about things, but I think we all more or less agree that Break Away has been a great creative success for all of us.
*The band all nods their heads*
Chris: Personally, I really like my performance on “The Badlands”, but overall I think our latest album has been a huge upgrade in terms of sound.
Lincoln: One thing in particular I really liked was the transition from “Break Away” to “Taking a Stand”. It plays out as one long song, and I really like that kind of shit.
Park: I just like Break Away because I get to play more lead guitar parts.
*The rest of the band chuckles*
Park: No, seriously! It’s so much more fun to play. Especially just the opening song, where we play harmonies together? That’s my favourite part of the album.
Randy: Are there any changes going on with the band that we should know about?
Chris: Not really. I have been experimenting with my hair style, but other than that the band’s stayed pretty consistent. I’m probably going to change it back, red’s not really my colour to be honest.
Park: We have been looking for a vocalist, though. We want to add vocals to our song, but can’t seem to find any fits for the band. It turns out almost all vocalists are assholes, and we’ve only got room for one of those in our band.
Dennis: And I’ll have you know that I happily fill that spot!
Park: I was actually referring to Chris, but that works too.
Chris: I’m gonna pretend I didn’t hear that. Anyways, as of right now there’s been nothing to really write home about. I might end up singing if the search goes on long enough, as I used to do lead vocals when we played covers, but I don’t really want to. I guess we’ll see how things go.
Randy: Do you have any plans for 2024? Any new music for us?
Chris: We have some big plans for our next album. Most of it’s already done, so it won’t be much longer until it comes out. And I think it’s safe to say this is our best one yet.
Park: Oh, absolutely. It’s going to be an ambitious album with little experiments in a wide variety of genres; some pop-punk, heavy metal, emo, even a ska song at some point.
Chris: We were trying to think of a name for it, but nothing we could come up with felt like it would fit with the album. So we just decided to make it a self-titled album instead. Waaay easier than coming up with a meaningful name.
Dennis: And to the members of Plain Front, we had that idea before you announced your album, okay?
Chris: But yeah, it’s almost ready for release. We even have the album cover ready, which I emailed you if you want to put it in the blog post.
Randy: Well I guess I should try and find the password to that then. Thanks to Call of the Void for being here, and be sure to keep an eye out for their next release! ...time for me to chain smoke that pack of cigs and ruminate about my life choices. Bye all.
