Hi everyone. I got the chance to sit down with Josh, from the rock band Foreign Sons, to talk about their debut full length and latest single!
Hello Foreign Sons! Thanks for doing this interview with us! Could you introduce yourselves and tell us about how the band first formed? We are Foreign Sons from Las Vegas Nevada. The band consists of Chris Bundra (vocals/guitar), David Weaver (guitar), Josh Bundra (bass), Kyle Bundra (drums). The band was formed when Chris moved back from college to start playing with Josh and Kyle. We met David in California shortly there after and he moved out to Las Vegas to play with us.
How would you describe your band to someone who has never heard your songs before? We are an American Rock band that blends the lyrical styling of Thrice and 30 Seconds To Mars with the musical flavors of Citizen and Brand New.
You released last month your debut full length named ‘Transference’. How did you approach the writing process for this one? Our approach in the writing process was for the flow of the record to move from dark to light and the lyrical and musical themes to reflect that. Whenever we write songs we get together and work on an idea that someone comes up with and we play on it until we love it or hate it.
How have your fans and the media responded to it so far? We have had a lot of good response from everyone that has heard the record so far.
Do you have a personal favorite song on the record? Any particular reason? I’m personally a huge fan of Fracture! Awesome! Glad you love Fracture. That was a fun song to write and record. Our favorite song as a band would have to Wonder. We all love the creativity and uniqueness of the song and feel that it is the best reflection of our writing on the record.
I’m sure you guys have at least one funny story to tell us from your recording sessions! We were headed back from dinner one night and Chris was driving. As soon as we got onto the country roads our buddy Wetzel insisted on driving from the passenger seat saying he had received military training in the event of an incapacitated driver. He threw his left leg over the center console onto the gas, put his left hand on the wheel and flawlessly drove the rest of the way back.
You released a music video for ‘Good Things’ as a preview of this record. How was the shooting experience? It was a lot of fun! Working with kids is a different experience all together. There was quite a bit of negotiation with cookies for pulling off the perfect shot. Cannot say enough about our buddy Josh Harris, he did an amazing job directing the video.
According to you, did this single best reflect the spirit of this record? Definitely ! Good Things is great reflection of the hope that resolves the story told through the record.
And to finish… What’s up next for your band? We’ve got some tours in the works and are currently working on another music video that we will be releasing this month.
