The ice is breaking up, and the Canadian invasion is on in earnest. Or, you know, record sales. Grab your passport and ride with us on the horses we got from the Mounties barn Vesuvius - My Place Of Solace And Rest you enjoy this piece.
Vesuvius Website Facebook Twitter. Home Interviews. Ben Cooligan : Our pleasure! Right now, the boys and I are working on orchestrating our live performance for our Canadian run in support of our debut Vesuvius - My Place Of Solace And Rest , My Place of Solace and Rest! The bio was graphed out by Kathleen, who runs PR at Tragic Hero, I just reworded and added content to give it a little more spice.
I also wrote the lyrics for the first record. NRR : When band first formed, was it always meant to be the unique five piece configured outfit that you are currently? Ben Cooligan : The band was originally the brainchild of myself and my co-frontman Billy Melsness. Our original plan was to create something emotional that we can translate and perform to a live audience, so we wanted to form the best possible lineup to communicate that.
The current layout is definitely the best and most dedicated performance lineup we could imagine, and we cannot wait for their contribution on our upcoming music. What makes this album good enough to be the banner of the Vesuvius sound?
We wanted to create something relatable with a lot of substance, but something that can translate into an enjoyable live set. I personally love to write songs with huge choruses and structure songs that have parts of emotional climax that serve as the centerpiece of the song. Billy and I completely co-wrote the album, and his contribution of large orchestras and minimal overlays are what brings together what we are hoping to trademark as our band as our career unfolds. Ben Cooligan : has definitely been a year of deaths that have occurred much too soon.
May they all rest in peace and be remembered for their contribution to what we all love. Ben Cooligan : Although the Ottawa scene can be very competitive, the majority of our counterparts we have grown up playing music alongside are very supportive!
How important are these things for you not just as Coronation March - The Band Of The Grenadier Guards - Coronation March revenue stream but as a way to interact with your fans?
And how would you do your most memorable merch item no holds barred? Having a strong visual component to compliment the auditory experience is always a plus, and promotion-wise a sound Ma Baker - Blonde On Blonde - Blonde On Blonde. Same with the VIP experience; the more inclusive artists are with Vesuvius - My Place Of Solace And Rest fans, the more actively supportive their fans will be.
As someone Undeclared - Matchbox - Matchbox worked as an independent artist for years before developing a strong partnership with Tragic, the reactionary bonus of fans being able to personally explain the importance of your art is a feeling like no other. Being able to write something that makes somebody else, for me without a doubt exemplifies surrealism.
For myself personally, I really like physical merchandise that exploits the emotion of what I try to write. I love hand-written merchandise, such as lyric books or visual art that coincide with the story line of an album.
I remember when my first band, Of Burning Empires, was gearing up to record our first single, out of pre-celebratory excitement I cleaned off a whole bottle of whiskey the night before the drive up. Ben Cooligan : Festival season is certainly exciting this year, especially for us up in the great white north.
In our hometown of Ottawa, we throw a huge Bluesfest every summer. European festivals are always huge also; would be awesome to do a club tour with some festivals mixed in once we can arrange something with some European bands.
Why did you Wheres One? - Ray-d8 - Eclectomaniac go that route for your freshman effort? Peace and love.
