INTERVIEW: Meet The Storm

1. Tell us who you are and where you’re from.: We are Meet the Storm, a hardcore/punk band from the bowels of Rotterdam, the Netherlands

2. Describe your music.: Dirty, fast hardcore/punk with a twist of southernrock.

3. Tell us how the band formed in three sentences.: With Joe, Ash and Matt’s former band splitting up, Joe and Matt wanted to do something new. They started Meet the Storm, with Joe bringing in a drummer and second guitar player, and immediately started writing songs and playing gigs, with friends filling in on bass.

4. What did you do before you were in a band?: Mostly play in other bands. Music has been in our life for a very long time, even when we where kids.


5. List the first CDs/records each of you bought.: Matt: Guns n Roses, Use your illusion 1
Joe: Dog Eat Dog, All Boro Kings
Ash: Fear Factory, Demanufacture

6. What’s the band up to over the next few months?: First we are shooting our new videoclip for the song “Can’t plan regret”. Then there are a few tours coming up thru the UK, Belgium and then Germany. And then start the pre-production for our debut album

7. Best item of fan mail you’ve ever received?: Most of the time it’s fan pictures, with us in the picture.

8. What music do you have on repeat in the tourbus? : Cancer Bats’s Hail destroyer, Alexisonfire’s Old crows young cardinals, ETID’s The big dirty. But the rule in the van is the driver is the DJ, so most of the time nothing is on repeat. But these records are played very often.

10. What’s your best on-tour story?: After a show on tour in the UK, we went back to the place we were staying for a midnight BBQ, it all started normal, but when some girls, a hypnotist and some more friends started to come over, it quickly became a full on Motley Crue style after party.

11. What do you demand on your rider?: Most of the time it’s just normal stuff, like some drinks, some beers, something to eat, a few towels and a parrot with a Mexican mustache that can sing “My heart will go on” by Celine Dion

12. What’s your website?:
