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 Everyday Dogs.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
EVERYDAY DOGS: We like to call ourselves a High-Octane Rock ‘N’ Roll Band. When we play, it’s fast, heavy, and energetic. Our music is defined by loud guitar riffs, heavy drums, and big guitar solos.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
EVERYDAY DOGS: Grunge music has had a huge influence on our sound, bands like Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, and Pearl Jam. There’s plenty of other rock bands that we pull from too, like Foo Fighters and Thrice.
METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
EVERYDAY DOGS: Our newest song is called “Black Fire”, and it’s our heaviest song to date. I [Jesse Inglima, lead guitarist and backing vocals] wrote the lyrics to the song after reading Dracula for the first time, and I wanted to inject this sense of menace into a song about vampires. So the song definitely falls into the Headbanger Halloween category.
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
EVERYDAY DOGS: When we play a show, we go hard. We give it everything we’ve got, headbanging, jumping around [sometimes off the stage], and making sure the crowd knows they came to see a rock ‘n’ roll band.
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
EVERYDAY DOGS: It would be great to have grown our audience and fanbase outside of Athens, GA, and expanded across the Southeast and other parts of the country. I think that will come from extensive touring and growing our audience naturally from the ground up over time.
