In our next band spotlight, we chat to A Story Unwritten about music and inspirations.
S] What inspires your music?
Our music is mostly inspired by the things we see going wrong in the world. Whether it’s unnecessary violence, corruption of politics/media, or just about things that happen in our lives personally. As far as musically, we gain our inspiration from the grunge bands of the 90s. Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Foo Fighters, etc. We love how they conveyed their emotions with their music. Be it depression, or aggression, each song conveyed pure emotion, and that’s what we strive for with our sound as well.
S] What’s been a career highlight?
A career highlight would have been last year playing at Naperville’s Last Fling 2016. We got the chance to play our first big festival that day, and we played for somewhere around 500 people. It was an amazing feeling to be able to entertain at such an awesome event, so close to our hometown.
S] What are your plans for the future?
Well, we are currently gearing up for our ‘Just A Little Taste’ weekender tour this July. After that we will be immediately hitting the studio to record our first full length album. As of right now, were just hoping to get that stuff done and put all of our energy into making it an album that blows everyone away.
