Dead and Divine recently started their European tour together with Norma Jean, The Chariot and Admiral’s Arms. In support of this tour we are running a competition to give away two copies of Antimacy. Check the bottom of this article to see what you need to do to win this!
The guys of the band were kind enough to find the time to answer some of our questions.
Can you think of a comparison to express your excitement for the upcoming tour?
Hmm, I’m about as excited as I was for the Christmas of ’94.
How do you guys combine the touring and writing?
We don’t generally combine the two. We occasionally come up with little parts here and there, but it’s usually by accident. Our writing process usually consists of us locking ourselves in our homes/basements/jam space/studio.
What is the weirdest thing to happen to you guys on tour?
Far too many things! I think most bands who have been touring for 5+ years begin to lose track of weird shit after the first little while. We’ve had experiences with crazy people, drug addicts, glass dildos, vomit, pee, poop, sharks, and a lot of fire.
What can we expect from you guys in the near future?
Well we’re in the middle of the Evil Tiger Vulture European tour with Norma Jean, The Chariot and Admirals Arms right now. Once we’re done this, we’re heading home and hopefully going out East in Canada for some headline dates. We’ll be playing summer festivals in Canada and hopefully following that with a Canadian headline late summer/early fall. After that we’ll probably head into the studio and start working on a new record.
What keeps you busy besides Dead & Divine?
Matty designs merch for a ton of clothing companies/bands when he is at home. Everyone else keeps busy with small side projects, family and girlfriends. You know, the regular stuff.
If you were to break your musical bones tomorrow, which band would you want to play your last show with and where?
Probably bands like Foo Fighters, Deftones or Smashing Pumpkins. Where? Hmm, either in a garage or Wembley, one of the two.
If you want to win the Dead and Divine’s latest album Antimacy, head over to the Legends Arising Facebook-page and find the image of the Norma Jean tour poster (see image above). Tag yourself or anyone you want to enter for the competition. The winner will be announced this Sunday.
