Q&A: Summer Blood




Define your genre in five words or less:

Just listen to it.

When are you playing live/releasing your album/EP/single/etc.?

We released a demo CD at the end of last year and are currently working on an EP due for release this year. 

Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?

Old school punk/surf melodies that we turn into our own brand of music, think Ramones, Wavves, Dinosaur Jr. 

How long have you been gigging and writing?

All of us have come from various other past bands and played/play in other bands. My brother Adam writes the riffs and we’ve always jammed together since we were kids. Summer Blood formed in 2012. 

What inspires or has influenced your music the most?

The need to vent our frustration of music these days.  

If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who

would it be and why?

Robert Johnson would be ultimate but we wouldn’t dream of showing him our stuff. Black Flag or The Stooges would be rad.
