I, what made you decide on the band’s name?
NEVER I is the title of a song by THE CHARIOT that we interpreted as
being synonymous with selflessness. A perspective we strive to hold
true in our lives and the music we make together.
Can you tell me a bit
about yourself and each member of the band, what do you bring to the
CLINT thumps. HAYDEN jams. CONNOR is a wiz. KOTA funks. Anonymous
are your biggest influences both musically and personally?
we’d have to go with bands like NORMA JEAN, UNDEROATH, and THE
CHARIOT. Personal influences include LEONARDO, DONATELLO,
MICHAELANGELO, RAPHAEL, and of course MASTER SPLINTER.
many releases do you currently have out and where can people find
them to buy/listen?
We have one EP, “SPEAK” (2016), and a single we released back in March
called, “HOPELESSNESS IN HOPING FOR THE BEST.” // “SPEAK” is available
on ITUNES, SPOTIFY, & GOOGLE PLAY MUSIC. Both the EP and
“HOPELESSNESS…” are on YOUTUBE & BANDCAMP.
the band announced that you are playing WARPED TOUR, what do you hope
for out of playing there?
just excited to play. It’s an incredible opportunity that we never
thought we would have.
have been touring all over the country, how is your band able to keep
up with the demands of travel and where have been your favourite
cities to play?
work our asses off when we’re at home. Moving from job to job just
to pay bills and still be able to tour. We do everything we can to
make touring go as smoothly as possible. Charlotte, NC; Spartanburg,
SC; Lynchburg, VA; Orlando, FL; Bloomington, IL; Chicago, IL; Grand
Junction, CO. All of those are fantastic.
is next for NEVER I?
We recorded an EP with MATT McCLELLAN that will come out later this
year. We have a new singer so we’re excited to hit the studio with him.
We have a couple more tours coming up this year with some awesome
bands. There is a lot of cool stuff we’re just really excited to share
Do you have any fans that
you'd like to give a shout out to? I'd like to send some love to MIKE
Our friends CAMERON AUCH, DEAN STURGILL, TRENTON WORSHAM, HANNAH JONES,
and KARI WHIE. Those are only a few on a long list of everyone that has
supported us and helped us get where we are today. We consider
ourselves very fortunate to have the support that we do.
In 20 years, where you do
you see yourselves as a band?
