PROPHETS OF ADDICTION are a band that I had no clue whatsoever even existed until I was sent their promo. Now I just had to interview them. Anders Ekdahl ©2016
Could you please introduce the band to us?
-The band consists of myself Lesli Sanders on lead vocals and bass guitar, Jimmy Mess drums, G.G. Guitar and Brandon Barger Guitar
When you form how easy is it to pick up a thread as to where your sound is going??
-The band was formed in 2012, and I have just continued to do what I have always done and that is to write raw unapologetic songs about real life.
How do you explain the meaning of the band name?
-Everyone is addicted to something in life, and there are things one should be doing instead of those things. The songs are about real life and hence the appropriately titled band name.
How important is image to the band? What impression do you want the fans to get of the band?
-Well I have always been a fan of the whole package, killer songs, killer looks, killer tones, I aim to mesmerize or why do it. I want people to walk away and say “what the fuck was that, that was amazing.”
I am a huge fan of LP art work. How important is it to have the right art work for your album?
-I think it sets the tone right off the bat, yes it is very important.
How do you avoid being affected by the hype likes on youtube and facebook can create on social media?
-I just don’t really care, why would I, I love to do what I do.
How important is it to be signed to label today? What can they do
that you cannot so on your own?
-Well it is different today that is for sure, lets’s see what happens, ask me that again in 6 months…HAHA
How much of a touring band are you guys? How hard is it to get gigs outside of your borders?
-The band is always touring, and we have played Europe, Autralia, as well as several USA Tours.
What will the future bring?
-I wish I knew, but I do know I will continue to do music as I know it.
