Interview – Doc Holliday Takes The Shotgun

dhtts fav
Who are you and what are you doing here??
My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.

How did your music career start?
5 friends that decided to use “band practice” as an excuse to get away from our girlfriends. Eventually we became so entangled in our web of lies we were obliged to write some songs and play some gigs.

How would you describe your music?
We have been described by friends as Horror-surf / Zombie-luau (we especially dig this one (thanks B!).

If you had to choose one song you’ve written that best defines your sound which one would it be?
Our latest single ‘King Of The Moon’ probably doesn’t apply to this question. But it’s our latest single. So, ‘King Of The Moon’ probably.

In this day and age where anyone is pretty much able to pick up an instrument, what would you say sets your band apart from the rest?
Our band name is a full sentence; it includes a subject, verb and an object. Not many other bands are able to handle this. Oh and our live show gets hectic too.

Where are people able to hear your songs?
Come to our website, bandcamp, or soundcloud and you can get our tracks for free!
