Interview With "Outpost 79"!

Bookmark and Share
1-How long have you been and how's your path until now in the Music Industry???

- We've been together about two and a half years now, which was broken up slightly with a couple of member changes last year. But we replaced our original guitarist
and drummer with guys who are maybe even better players! So no loss. For the record, the original two left because they moved away, to Colorado and Michigan.
But they were both kind enough to give me ample noticeof their departure, so there are no hard feelings whatsoever. In fact, our original drummer
showed up unexpectedly at a show we played last weekend on Long Island for a very nice surprise!

2- What are your biggest achievements???

- We are one of the bands interviewed in Fireworks Magazine in the UK this month, which is the first time we've gotten press overseas. I am still waiting for
Japan to come calling en masse, but short of that I'll take any publicity they would like to give us! We've been the opening band in NYC for a couple of national touring acts like Pretty Boy Floyd and Sponge, also.

3- What's your latest release(s) and project(s) and what can you tell us about them???

- First Stage is our EP that we are still promoting, and it's been picked up by numerous internet radio stations all over. This was a set of three songs we recorded with the original members, plus a cover of Psycho Killer by the Talking Heads taken from a live performance. David Byrne still
hasn't gotten back to m with his opinion of it, but from what I understand he's a very busy man these days. The CD was produced by Kyle Paas,
who is making quite a name for himself as a producer - he's really quite excellent at what he does, so the quality of the recording is impeccable.

4- What are your future plans???

- We're getting ready to go into the studio to produce a full-length LP this fall, which looks like it will be 10 or 11 songs, all new stuff not on the EP. As much as I'd like to re-record the older songs with the new guys, there's no need; we're not lacking for new material, some of which has been quite popular at our recent shows. Hopefully that will be completed and ready to go in spring of 2019.

5- What do you like to tell to your supporters out there???

- Keep coming to our shows! But don't just see us: the New York music scene has a lot of great bands these days, and it's a shame that
there isn't more publicity for some of the other groups in the scene that I think are also worth listening to. You hear all the time that rock is dead, no one wants to listen to guitars, and then Guns N Roses sells out another worldwide tour and everyone goes to see Iron Maiden. The real answer is that it's a lot easier to produce pop and hip hop, and so with limited resources, that's what gets the attention. But there's a lot of us out
there rocking, and we certainly plan on doing it for a long time to come.
