Twinmusix got to speak to Jayden from Stepson about there upcoming show and more.
TM- What can fans expect from your shows?
J-Lots of energy and big sing a longs, friendly faces and lots of smiles.
TM- How have you picked your set this for this tour?
J - We are going to do songs from our whole discography, earlier in the year we recorded our full length album and we are probably going to play. A few cheeky songs, that no one's heard before and songs from our first 2 EPS.
TM- What was the writing and recording process for your new album?
J- It is a bit tricky because we live in different spots, our drummer Jordan is in Melbourne our, two guitarists live together in Brisbane and our singer Brock is on the Gold Coast and I live in a little country town in northern New South Wales. Our writing process is not as easy because we don't get in the same room.
One of the boys writes a riff and then sends it to the rest of us and we elaborate on that, so we get the best structure of the song Down. Then Brock I will play around with lyrics and then we usually record a demo after that we listen to it finished and decide if it sounds good, if it sounds good we got a recorder properly.
TM- That's interesting, how did you all meet if you all live in different locations?
J- We meet at gigs over time and then we all left our bands and formed one together.
TM- Sweet, I interview quite a few different bands and a few of them the members are in different states and they have a similar writing process as you.
J- that's cool
TM- Can you tell us a story that's happened on tour?
J- We have this thing called stepson, like that is pretty synopsis with bad luck and it seems no matter what tour we went on from 2015 onwards something bad would happen to us. In 2016 we were touring with a band called Dream On Dreamer and we were travelling down the highway at 100 km an hour. One of our trailer Wheels ripped off the trailer and dropped down onto the ground. It was grinding and pulling the car all over the road, thankfully all was ok and we pulled over. We were stranded on the side of the road with a trailer full of gear and no way to transport it. We got a tow truck to the nearest city and they said they would fix it, but it will take 3 or 4 days. We needed to be in Adelaide for a show that night so we got a hire car and jammed as much as we could in the boot rang friends in Adelaide. We called our my mates and said Hey can we borrow some gear for a show tonight and they said yes sure so we went on the tour and on the way back we picked up a trailer with all that stuff.
TM- That is awesome that you made your show on time and your fans got to see you. I think it is a real testament to you guys that you made it work.
J- Thank You
TM- If you could play One festival what would it be and why?
J - Definitely reading and Leeds that would be my perfect festival
TM- If you could have any band play one of your song's which band would it be which song would it be and would be in your style there Style?
J- Johnny Cash doing any of our songs in his style.
TM- If you could choose any song title as a biography title for your band what would it be and why?
J- This Is How It Feels.
TM- What's your favourite memory of watching a different band performs live?
J- Parkway Drive and The Ghost Inside at Byron Bay High School. I remember one of The Ghost Inside songs had the biggest bass drop, the sound hit me and vibrated through me. I felt like it just pushed me back and I remember thinking holy s*** that's the coolest thing ever.
