Interviewed via email Ty Brooks of Minnesotan melodic hardcore band, and new Victory Records’ signee, Conveyer. It will release “When Given Time To Grow” on Sept. 4.
TSR: You told HM the band is definitely Christian. Is everyone in the band a Christian?
TB: Yes, we are all Christians.
TSR: Different Christian faith bands do it differently. Do you guys share your faith from the stage or just let the lyrics and music do it?
TB: It really depends on the show, we never have a thought out message that we have ready to say every night, if something is said from stage it’s because God laid it on our hearts to say at that very moment.
TSR: How has signing with Victory changed your work load? Still main jobs back home for everyone?
TB: It has been awesome, we’ve definitely been busier than ever getting everything together for this new record. We all work full time when we’re not on tour, so we are always busy!
TSR: What’s next, tour-wise and what are your hopes for “When Given Time To Grow?”
TB: We’re doing a headliner in September for our record release tour with Ghost Key, Dwell & Until We Are Ghosts. And then we will be touring in October and November as well, we can’t announce the tours just yet, but we’re looking forward to being back on the road. We’ve been home for less than a week and we’re already counting down the days until September.
TSR: Lastly, do you know anything about this Conveyor – https://www.facebook.com/therealconveyor/app_182222305144028 – and can we expect a cover anytime soon?
TB: Can’t say that I’ve ever heard of them. I saw something on their page about using 2 drummers though, so that’s cool. But probably not likely that we’d cover each other’s songs.
And here is the new release of “Haven.”
