 How much have your influences affected the music you make ?
Video games affect our melodies BIG TIME! Also because of listening to a wide range of genres, our songs/albums end up sounding like a major mash up of many things, or just "Hybrid" as we like to call it.

How long have you been playing your instruments?
Pyro = 6-7 years,

Apes = 4-5 years

What does making music do to you?/ what is the best/worse parts about being a working musician?
Making music kicks all the ass on planet earth so I always get that mega lift/boost when creating something new. I don't see it as work, it’s just another form of expressing one’s self.


What do you think the world would be like without music ?
Forking disgusting.

What do you think about illegal downloading?
I think musicians should be happy that people bother to listen, like, love, and crave it that badly to illegally download it.

What are your thoughts about the music industry in its current state and what do you think would be detrimental to the way it works/what do you think would make it better?
I personally just think that the "industry" is one messy piece of sketchy bullS***. Nothing more to say on that…

Do you have any planned gigs and tours coming up ?
We don’t really do gigs; we're more of an online/visual content type of band. Basically we’re the anime duo that pop up on your internet doing fun things every now and then.
