Death By Stereo arrive in town this week to commence their national tour supporting Strung Out, a few of their own headline shows and a slot on the sold out Come Together Festival. They are a band punters have been crying out to tour for years now, so anticipation is high. Shaun Scanlan caught up with the band for a quick interview. Read More to check it out.

Tell me a little about how where you guys come from and how the band started.
We live in the Los Angeles/Orange County area in California. We started in 98 and it was just a group of friends getting together

What music/bands made you want to start a band?
We love everything from Bad Religion to Sick of it  All and I would have to say AFI was a pretty big inspiration at the time.

You’re supporting Strung Out on this tour and I know those boys love a party in their hotel room; will there be much debauchery on tour?
There will be tons of it, we like to get a good amount of booze in our systems and let loose. The Strung Out guys will be good partners in crime.

I was speaking to Chris from Strung Out last week and he said that he went to school with Tyler, how does it feel to still be playing shows with mates from back then?
Tyler is really excited about this tour since he gets to tour with one of his best friends.

Great to see you’re playing your own headline shows in Sydney & Melbourne is this something that you feel is important?
It’s not so much important as just an opportunity to do our own shows. We are looking forward to all the shows on this tour.

How was your Mexican & Dominican Republic tour, do you have a big fan base in those places?
We had a great time in both places. The kids there are very passionate about the music and we had great turnouts in both places.

How much of international touring is work and how much is a holiday?
It’s only work when you don’t get much sleep, otherwise it’s a total blast. It’s a lot more fun than touring the US. That’s real work.

You’re in Europe at the moment with Himsa & The Banner, are they bands that you’ve selected for the tour?
Yeah we are great friends with Himsa and now The Banner are our friends as well. We like touring with our friends rather than just doing tours for exposure or whatever. It’s way more fun that way.

What other up and coming bands should we be looking out for?
You should check out The Video Dead, Side 67, The Banner, and Cry Havoc.

I got your new record “Death For Life” the week it came out and I think it’s fucking sweet, how has the live response been to the new songs?
The live response has been great, kids are very receptive to the new songs. They mix up quite nicely with the old ones.

How does it feel to be a true punk rock band on Epitaph when so much stuff on their label is changing? Do you hang out much with Mr Brett?
It’s a little strange i must admit. We definitely don’t fit in musically with the bands on the label but they still have great bands on the label. We don’t hang out with Mr Brett or any of our friends much anymore since we tour all the fucking time.

I noticed on your forum you have an “Ask The Bean” section where the fans can ask Efrem whatever they like, is this interaction something that’s important to you guys, how often do you guys get a chance to reply?
It’s always important to keep in contact on a personal level with the people that support us.
