PSAB: What does the band name "Pangaea" mean exactly?
PG: Pangaea is the supercontinent that formed around 300 million years ago. All of the continents today were once all connected as one giant land mass. Due to continental drift we have the continents in their current locations. The name Pangaea is derived from Ancient Greek with PAN meaning “entire”, and GAIA meaning “Mother Earth.”
PSAB: How has the feedback been for your recently released EP Unified?
PG: The feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive. We are humbled by all of the kind words we have received so far from people who have downloaded Unified and from those who have seen us live.
PSAB: If you could share the stage with any band, which band would it be and why?
PG: Between the Buried and Me. It would be a huge honor since they've been playing for so many years in a style that is truly their own. They have never conformed or stopped creating music that is meaningful to them.
PSAB: What are your plans for this upcoming summer? Tour? Record?
PG: We have a couple of tours in the works for this spring/summer. We are heading to the east coast with our Wisconsin brothers in Ocellus in May. Keep an eye open on our Facebook page for the tour dates. No plans to record at the moment with Unified just coming out but we are always writing new music.
PSAB: Which bands play the most influence on your music?
PG: The Contortionist, Sikth, Veil of Maya, Mastodon, and Between the Buried and Me to name a few.
PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to the readers out there?
PG: We would just like to thank everyone who has taken the time to listen to our music, see us play live, read this interview, and picked up merch. Some people have even sent donations while downloading our EP (which is free on our Bandcamp). We can’t thank them enough for that. Also, all of the bands we’ve had the chance to share the stage with have been awesome. No egos, no BS, just local bands that support each other. We definitely want to give our dudes in Ocellus a shout out for taking us on the road this May! And thank you, Micah, for supporting us and doing this interview!
