Greyhaven – Interview

High flying post-hardcorers GREYHAVEN return with their new video ‘Brother’, it lands in just a few weeks. We had a talk with the guys about their history and future plans:

What is the full band lineup, who plays what?

Sam Paterson – Vocals
Alex Hills – Guitar
Jim White – Guitar
Edd Kerton- Bass/Vocals
Connor Tate- Drums

How and when did the band form? Tell us anything interesting about your hometown.

Greyhaven was an on going project involving Alex Hills, Sam Paterson, and Jim White amongst other musicians. The band became fully formed in early 2015 with the addition of Edd Kerton and Connor Tate.

When and how did the band really start gelling and solidifying?  

That would probably be around the time that we started writing the latest EP “State of Mind”. We all definitely became a lot more in sync with each other and the sound really started to develop into what it is now,

What are your musical influences?

Our influences are quite varied from member to member though we are all united by our love of music. Some bands that we all have in common are Rise To Remain, Architects, Alexison Fire, and Underoath.

 

Where did the name of band come from?

The name “Greyhaven” is taken from Lord Of The Rings, Grey Havens is an elvish port city where the ships are built and sailed to their blessed realm where they live eternally. We’re a big bunch of nerds and we don’t care who knows it!

 

Where have you played or toured? Please name all countries / regions and recognised bands that you have played with.

At the moment we’ve only played around the UK with relatively mid level bands like Create To Inspire, The Afterparty, Faces Of Eve and Vera Grace. Maybe this year we’ll be getting out of the UK and maybe even some bigger support shows.

Name any and all advertising or promotion you have received up until now

First single “On & On” was featured several weeks in a row on Alex Baker’s Kerrang Radio show

Music Video for “On & On” was in rotation on Scuzz TV

In your opinion, how is your band different from all the other bands out there?

We genuinely love music, Not just listening to it but performing it. We also don’t take ourselves 100% seriously and always try our best to make our shows a good time for anyone attending.

If a deaf person were to ask you to describe the sound of your music, how would you describe it?

None of us are proficient in sign language but we like to think it’s alternative music with generous sprinklings of metal and arena style rock

Do you have a tour on the horizon?

We’re currently looking at booking a couple of runs around the UK this year which will be announced at a later date so keep your eyes on our Facebook page.
