INTERVIEW: Everything We Left Behind

1. Tell us who you are and where you’re from.: We are Everything We Left Behind, 4 guys who live in slightly
different parts of the South of the UK.
Josh Rees – guitar and vocals, Joel Rees – guitar, Sam Cureton – bass,
John Yard – drums

2. Describe your music.: To sum up, we sound like a British punk band that has toured the
warped tour through the mid-90’s. Our biggest influences are NOFX,
Captain Everything, and A Wilhelm Scream

3. Tell us how the band formed in three sentences.: Josh played guitar for a few years and formed a band with some people
in 2005. These people then either left or where asked to leave. In
2008 Josh re-structured the band with 3 new members;
Joel is his brother, John is a childhood friend, and Sam is good at bass.

4. What did you do before you were in a band?: School/College. We still work now we aren’t exactly living the dream
just yet. 2 of us are at Uni, one of us works in finance selling
mortgages and ISA’s and the other runs a pub.

10. What’s your best on-tour story?: Someone once spat at our drummer’s girlfriend whilst we were playing,
after we finished he then confronted the guy who then began to cry
infront of us all.

11. What do you demand on your rider?: As a band we have received one rider in our delicious 6 year career.
Think we had sandwiches and crisps. It was divine. We tend to play
shows for as little as possible but maybe one day we can get free shit
