Dylan Walters, Guitar (D)

Luke Dyde, Guitar (L)

Miles Case-Watson, Vocals (M)


When did you decide that a career in music was for you?


L: I've always found music interesting and had a deep love for it that resonates with me, I watch a live performance and look around the room and find it beautiful that it's something that creates unity and emotion. Becoming an adult and realizing the 9-5 grind was melting me down, I needed more in my life.


Who are your musical inspirations and why?


L: I draw inspiration from bands that can convey emotions in their songs in a way that makes me feel emotion, for me Avenged Sevenfold’s self titled album always resonated with me for this reason.


Can you tell me 3 things about yourself that people might not already know?


M: - I'm originally from Brighton.

- I'm autistic 

- I love cheese


What song of yours best describes you and why?


D: Tough one this, but I’m going to go for ‘Path of Destruction’. I think its just a really good song (not to toot my own horn too much), with great lyrics done by Miles, and is a mix of catchy and heavy that we strive with our songwriting. 


What has been the best gig you have done to date and why?


L: Bloodstock, it's our first and only to date major festival appearance and it felt like 5 years of hard work paid off and seeing strangers vibing to the music we've worked  so hard to craft made me feel happy and left me craving doing it again


If you could perform a gig at any venue where would it be and why?


M: This isn't a venue in the same sense I guess, but I've always dreamed of touring the metal festival circuit finishing with Wacken OA


What has been your best achievement to date and what would you like to achieve in the future?


D: Keeping a band fairly stable for 6ish years seems to be a good achievement in itself, especially with a global pandemic in the middle of that! But I would definitely say playing Bloodstock last year was our best achievement. It was always a dream of mine to play that festival so getting to play it was unbelievable! As for what I would like to achieve in the future, just keep on playing more shows and festivals, and eventually play in another country that is on my bucket list.


Tell me a story from backstage or after a gig?


M: I once worked backstage at a large venue in Manchester, and I met all sorts of celebrities such as, Rick Astley and Flatbush Zombies. I once spent an evening drinking with Dev from Idles after he played in the venue I worked at. Pretty cool guy.


What do you like best about being a musician and why?


D: Being able to play at venues and festivals that I could only dream about when I was younger. Plus writing music is just so fun, when we all come together and finish a song that we are really happy with there’s no better feeling


If you were not in the job you are now what would you be doing?


M: Touring. Touring. Touring.


What has been the best gig you have been to as a fan and can you tell us about it?


D: This answer seems to change every time I am asked it, but I’m going to go Malevolence at Bloodstock 2022. They played Karma with Will Ramos from Lorna Shore which came out of nowehere and I even crowd surfed for the first time in my life it was that good! Closely followed by Gojira at Bloodstock 2018, or Rammstein every time I see them


What would your ideal festival line up be and why?


M: Something with a good mix of all my fave, currently alive(if we're following that rule) artists across the genres I listen to. So, of course, we'd have to have a metal section featuring artists like Knocked Loose, Kublai Khan, Paleface Swiss, Gatecreeper, Malevolence, Loathe, Spiritbox, Thrown e.t.c. Then you'd have the sections covering all of the other genres/artists I listen to.


What would you say is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?


M: Never chew a pickle with a little slap and tickle


What things make you happy and what things annoy you?


D: Make me happy- Leeds United winning, annoy me- Leeds United losing


What things do you like to do when you are away from music?


M: I'm very big into movies and watching history docs.


Do you think social media and the internet are a good thing in the music industry?


L: Yes and no, they make getting attention to your art a lot easier and break down a lot of boundaries and give you a lot of artistic freedom to write whatever you want but streaming has definitely killed a revenue stream for artists making touring and merch sales your only sources of income.


How important do you think your look and image is when it comes to being in the music industry?


M: I think we all know the only response to this is that image certainly needs to mot be neglected if you're trying to portray yourself/band effectively.


Can you tell us about any tattoos you have and the significance of them to you?


M: A few of them are Norse mythology related


If you run the country for a day what would you change about it and why?


D: Firstly, id ban the last 5 Tory leaders from having anything to do with politics again. Id abolish the First Past the Post system in favour of Proportional Representation. Closer alignment with the EU, but not fully rejoining as the country isn’t ready for that again yet. Bring in Universal Basic Income and the 4 day working week. I would then offer more support to local music venues as they are really struggling at the minute. I would do this by making big companies like Ticket Master and Live Nation pay a tax that would go into supporting these. Finally, I would change the National Anthem to our song ‘Solace’.


What would your ideal day consist of?


L: Wake up (optional), wife brings me breakfast in bed (breakfast has some incredily crispy smoked bacon, good sausage and a slice or two of spam), she watches me owning some kids on Halo and loudly reflects how cool her husband is and how lucky she is to have a MLG husband and I agree with her, we then go out for beer and food and then we go to a metal gig. That's a perfect day.


If you could say one thing to your fans what would it be and why?


L: Thank you, we're grateful for every bit of support you've given us and we want to continue creating memories with you


What was the first record or song you purchased and why?


D: I could be wrong here, but the first CD I remember buying was Nirvana’s Greatest hits album as my mum got me into them at a young age and always liked them. And for first song I remember buying Welcome to the Black Parade by My Chemical Romance when Coca-Cola were giving away free songs with cans of Coke on iTunes when I was in year 6. I remember hearing it on the radio for the first time and I just became obsessed with it,


What would say to someone thinking about becoming a musician and getting into the music industry?


L: Believe in yourself and write what you want to hear and not what you think will sell, audiences are like horses and can tell when you don't believe in what you write.


If you could collaborate with any other band/singer or musician who would you choose and why?


D: Rob Halford from Judas Priest, one of the best vocalists in metal and just a absolute god 


If you could have written one song from history which would it have been and why?


D: Deep in the Willow by Knocked Loose, its just perfect and everything I would want in a song


What things make you uncomfortable?


L: Reflecting on how doomed society is


If you wrote a book about yourself what would it have in it?


M: "How to alienate people: a guide"


What has the rest of the year got in store for you? 


L: We have the EP launch in April, as many shows as we can fit in, hopefully we'll start recording new material around July/August time and create a release plan for that and if the stars align we'll plan some shows outside of the UK
