Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Say Never.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
SAY NEVER: Jonathan: Paul and I were involved in separate musical projects that were fizzling out around the same time so we decided to start something new.
Paul: One of our mutual friends told us that we should think about writing some songs together, so we met at a local Steak ‘n Shake in Woodstock Ga. and that’s when Say Never was born.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
SAY NEVER: Jonathan: Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Cold, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Silverchair.
Paul: Guns N’ Roses, Mötley Crüe, The Charlie Daniels Band, Alice In Chains.
METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
SAY NEVER: Jonathan: Our latest and debut release is called “Giving Up”. This song is about that emotional roller coaster of life we can all relate to, when you’re in a toxic situation beaten and broken and finally feel fed up, then when you come out of that situation and realize that tomorrow is a new day and anything can change but only if you try to make your life the best it can be.
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
SAY NEVER: Jonathan: When you attend a Say Never show, you should expect a show that is in your face from a high energy rock band. A party and just a good time like you wanna have.
Paul: Everyone wants to have a good time when they go to a rock show and that’s what we strive to deliver.
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
SAY NEVER: Jonathan: I think in five years we’re gonna be surprised at where we’re at.
Paul: I agree, if we continue to release good material, who knows where it will end up.
Jonathan: We are shooting for music placements in TV, movies and video games.
