2009 Rumble Questions:
Are you excited to be participating in the 31st WBCN Rock ‘n’ Roll Rumble?
Yes. We’ve been fairly reclusive and underground until now… Except for being in Guitar Hero and Rock Band…
Are you afraid of the Rumble curse?
It’s bad luck to be superstitious
Do you plan on doing anything special or different for your set?
No, unless you consider setting ourselves on fire while fighting with swords to be special…
How far do you think you’ll progress in the competition?
We’ll go until we’re done.
What’s your bet on who will make it to the finals?
The list is too big to make any predictions just yet, and
playing it cocky is just bad form. Conceit leads to nothing but bruised egos.
Are there any bands you would have picked for the line up this year that didn’t get in?
Death of the Cool, Razors in the Night, Vagiant, The Main Drag, and Breaking Wheel
What band is your favorite past winner?
What past competitor do you think was most robbed?
Getting in means you’re popular. Winning just means you’re lucky.
Any final words or smacktalk before the battle begins?
“It is only one who is thoroughly acquainted with the evils of war that can thoroughly understand the profitable way of carrying it on”- Sun Tzu
