PISSING RAZORS INTERVIEW

PISSING RAZORS is an American groove-based heavy metal band that was formed in El Paso, Texas in the early 1990s as a means to counter the boom in standard pop-culture mainstream music at the time. The initial focus of the project was to create a cross-platform of elements to bridge 'Punk' ideals and messages with the hardcore musical aspects of high energy underground 'Metal' that listeners could still groove to and connect with. Pissing Razors current line up is Eddy Garcia on drums, Mat Lynch on guitar, Joe on vocals and Geo Gomez om bass.

We got to speak to Joe about his upcoming album and more.

TM - What can fans expect from your Australian tour?

 

J - honestly, since I have never been there and I don't know what to expect. I would love to be received well and with open arms. We have a lot of music to play and I am looking to playing for everyone, having a few drinks with everybody and having a good time.

TM - Are you going to go to Frankie's Pizza?

J - That is correct, some of my friends have been filling me in on some cool places to go. They have also been telling me the people in Australia are very friendly and outgoing.

 

TM - We are excited that you are coming to Australia. What can fans expect from your set list?

J - We are trying to be very selective to the first four records. We are going to try and play a couple of new songs from the new album. We are versing on and hopefully release it by the end of the year.

 

TM - You have a new single coming out, what can fans expect? 

J - It is going to be fast and in your face. It will be some groove metal that we have done and a touch of modern sound.

 

TM - If you could have any bands play one of your songs, which band would it be, which song would it be and would it be in your style or their Style?

J - I would have had Damageplan because of our Vinnie Paul and Dimebag Darrell connection. We knew them on a personal level and always had a good time with them. We always hung out with them.

 

TM - What can fans expect from your new album?

J - We do not have a working title at all. We have been concentrating on all the music and trying to get it right to make the best music possible. It is about personal issues and things that are going on in the world, we are trying to get a message out there.

 

TM - If you could collaborate with anyone, who would it be and why?

 

J - I would love to sit in a room with King Diamond and write a song with him that would be a dream come true.

 

TM - That would be amazing, I cannot wait to see him at Hellfest this year. 

 

TM - What is your favorite memory of watching someone else perform live?

 

J - Garth Brooks talk about the country rock. He is a KISS fan too, and watching him play was amazing. It brought out some emotions that I did not know existed inside of me.

 

TM - That is sweet. Is there anything else you want to say to your fans?

J - Thank You for all the years of dedication and standing by us. We look forward to seeing you all in Sydney. We have never had the opportunity to come out there and show you what we do. Thank You for standing by us and supporting our music for all these years.

 

TM - Thank You for this interview, we really appreciate it and cannot wait to see you in Sydney.
