Following the release of their second album Ours Is Chrome and their first ever U.S. headlining tour, Pennsylvania’s Superheaven are currently touring the UK supporting Every Time I Die. They play The Fleece in Bristol on November 8.
Taylor Madison from the band recently answered questions from Andy Howells.
How did the band first get together?
Pretty much the same way any band gets together. We all played in bands, and wanted to start something new. So we write some songs and recorded a demo. Then we just started playing shows.
Who or what has inspired you most on your musical journey?
I don’t think anything specific. I think everyone in the band started playing at different times and for different reasons. But after playing music for 10 plus years now, I can definitely say that there is a need to create, and that’s probably why we continue writing new music.
Can you give us some background about your latest album?
It’s our second LP. I don’t think there’s much background to give. It was a little more difficult to write a second record, but only because there’s a desire to make it better, or at least as good as the first record.
You’re touring shortly are you looking forward to that?
Yeah. It’s been a little over a year since we’ve been to the UK.
What can people expect from your forthcoming Bristol gig?
We have played Bristol more than once. It will probably be loud.
What are you enjoying listening to at the moment?
The new Kurt Vile record is pretty good.
