Thank you again Fail to Act for doing this for not only DSN Promotions but for the fans as well...
Q: I know you say the name, Fail to Act, was inspired by Da Vinci's quote... but what exactly is fail to act, acting upon?
A: Fail To Act is acting upon alot from the politics of war to the survival of our planet, our freedoms constantly at stake.
Q: What is the Metal scene like in Southwestern Ontario?
A: The metal scene in our region is quite sectioned. Cities branching off in directions of metal really, each having a sort of sub genre typically. Fail To Act is different in a sense, we travel to different cities and find we mesh in a different way and use this to spread the music across many styles of fans and artists alike.
Q: What can fans expect with the upcoming EP, Concept of Freedom?
A: We think fans will see more of the puzzle in this EP. We love to play a variety and show that we cannot be labeled to just a sub genre in the background.
Q: What would you say is the biggest struggle with being a fairly new Metal band to the scene?
A: The early struggle in the metal scene is normally finding a fitting sound for the artists without compromise of style. It can be hard to get into the scene and we found struggle as we had no target audience for where we would best be fit. We struggled with costs of traveling a lot and had to push ourselves showing we could do it and had what it takes.
Q: If FTA was to share the stage with one big name, who would it be and why?
A: As a band the one group we want to share the stage with is Stone Sour. Their sound is a great mesh to ours in many ways without being alike and it would be an amazing experience.
Q: Where do you guys draw your inspiration from for the lyrics of your songs?
A: We see inspiration in everyday things, from politics to the struggle of loss and anger to any person. It is just about the way we percieve things...what they feel or see may be a new experience to another.
Q: What do you hope fans take away from hearing your music, lesson wise?
A: We hope to open our fans minds with our music, to look at things a little differently, to create a curiosity.
Q: What do you hope the future holds for FTA?
A: I hope the future holds bright with us. The fans true and strong, they have always been there supporting us. We hope to continue doing what we love and never to have our message censored.
Q: What kind of advice would you give to the up and coming generations of Metal bands?
A: Our advice to those is to always be true to your music. If you focus on what you think is right others will soon see it too. Never give up on yourselves.
Q: You guys are known for your live shows... Where was your most memorable performance? And why was that one so meaningful?
A: Its hard to pick just one show as they were all amazing. But to pick one would have to be our first. We had an amazing first show, the lights, sounds and fans were just inspiring. The night was just adrenaline pumping and the pit was jumping. The night was a double bill for Cody and Rob who had played in the opening act "And Then" with Rob on bass. The show went well with each artist working together as a team and it was a great spark to the start of our gigging.
