Languish Interview

 1.Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

Languish has been on a bit of a hiatus, Matt (guitars) suffered a shoulder injury on tour with North in November that lead to us cancelling shows. Now Matt and I are currently again with North and hoping to get back into things for April/May.

> 2.In April you have a new split coming out, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

It's our debut record Extinction but now on vinyl. So it's the same music bu I would describe it as filthy grindcore smothered in crusty doom.

> 3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?

Hatred of mankind, the impending fall of our species.

> 4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'languish'?

Matt and I started the group and wanted a name that represented the angst and existential pointlessness of existence.

> 5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

Fast and fucked. Sleep at the Rialto Theatre in Ocober 2015 was amazing.

> 6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

Nothing concrete as North is crazy busy with tour this year, as is Sean's (vox) group Gatecreeper and Ryan's (bass) studio Homewrecker Studios is busier than ever.

> 7.In April you have a split coming out with Oryx, what are your thoughts on the other band that had participated on the recording?

We love Oryx, Matt and I have done a tour and multiple shows with them. We wouldn't have accepted the split if it wasn't Oryx as they are the two sweetest people in the world.

> 8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your recordings by fans of extreme music?

People dig it that we know of. We're not out selling a fuck load of records but we're not getting death threats.

> 9.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are part of?

North is on tour right this second as I type this, Matt and I are on a full North American tour with Intronaut followed by a European tour in June. Gatecreeper just had a very successful tour and have a 4 way split coming out, along with a record store day release with YAITW and I think an impending full length. Territory has a few shows coming up too.

> 10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

More and more heaviness. A cloud of excrement rolling through broken glass.

> 11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

Lots of hip hop, neoclassical, ambient. Everything influences us. Not just music. Just look at the fucking world.

> 12.What are some of your non musical interests?

Reading, tv,  the other guys do shit, music is pretty much most of what we do.

> 13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Fuck Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. Bernie 2016.
