Allow us to introduce you to the guys from Forever Came Calling.
Whether you’re into the Warped Tour Scene, or you’ve been catching yourself falling into the new resurgence of pop-punk that’s been taking over- Forever Came Calling should be on your radar.
DHN-Tv had the chance to chat with the band at So What!? Music Fest and like their music, they did not disappoint.
Walking into the interview with the guys from Forever Came Calling, I could tell that these were guys who didn’t take life, or themselves seriously. Cracking jokes about me acting as a stenographer instead of just recording them, I knew I was in store for a real personality-packed hang out session with them, not some stiff Q & A session.
When asked how living in California is, (hey I’m a Florida girl jealous of the west coast ok…) bassist John Swaba had 3 words to sum it up : Weather, Women and Weed. Or as he paraphrased, www.com. (I was told to make sure that made it in this article. So there you go John.) Currently, these west-coast dudes can be found on tour with Major League and Sudden Suspension. So What?! Music Fest was just a stop among many on their tour, and they couldn’t stop mentioning how one of the best parts of being in a band was how many friends they got to share a stage with. Many of these friends shared the stage the day before at The Noise Showcase at South by Southwest, including Knuckle Puck, State Champs and Neck Deep, which the band described as an incredible, while insane, opportunity. Not only was the band stoked to see their friends perform for the rest of the day, they were most stoked to be a part of a festival where pop-punkers New Found Glory were headlining.
2 days prior to the festival, the band dropped it’s newest music video for Wish You Well, which was shot during their run at Vans Warped Tour U.K. Lead vocalist, Joe Candelaria described it best as “it’s just us, being our goofy selves.” And honestly, those make the best music videos anyways.
Gearing up to support Man Overboard on their farewell tour, Joe expressed that it’s going to be a bittersweet tour. “They’re our friends so it’ll be awesome to play with them, but at the same time knowing it’s the last time sucks.”
45 minutes later, we found ourselves laughing a lot more than interviewing when John so eloquently said “Let’s turn the heat up on this BBQ. Time to turn the tables…” and tried to interview me. That one didn’t last long before a story of how all of them contemplated risking their life to save a rough M&M earlier that day.
When I tell you that these dudes should be on your radar, I mean like right now. Go check them out, and follow their Twitter, because they’re almost as funny on the Internet as they are in person. If they’re coming to a town near you, try and make it out because these boys are sure to blow up soon. (The jokes they tell aren’t a bad plus either.)
