Interview with Lost Without Direction!

Genre(s): Progressive Metalcore/Djent
Location: Ingelheim am Rhein, Germany

PSAB: Why did you choose the name "Lost Without Direction" for your band?

LWD: Because we have been "lost without direction". We founded the band and had no idea in which direction this project will go. The name really fits, we even need google maps in our hometownarea!

PSAB: You're currently working on a new EP, titled Fragile. When can we expect that EP to release?

LWD: We are going to release it this summer, the recordings are done and we are just working on a new video and some organization. An accurate date will follow in the next days /weeks

PSAB: If you had the chance to create a metal festival, which featured five bands; which five bands would those be?

LWD: For myself it would be BTBAM, Born Of Osiris, The Safety Fire, After The Burial and Periphery. But this is hard, there are too many bands i would love to see.

PSAB: What is the local metal scene like in Ingelheim am Rhein?

LWD: I would love to say that a local scene in Ingelheim really exists. Ingelheim is just a small city in the Rhein-Main area, the local scene in Mainz, Wiesbaden or Frankfurt is really nice, there are lots of people who are having fun with our music, supporting shows and also many other talented bands like "Unprocessed" from Wiesbaden.

You can visit a local Show almost every weekend. The kids are buying merch, even CD´s and are happy if there is a possibility to see their friends on stage. It´s like a big family. But unfortunately there are also many guys hating on some bands, or people who are not into anything else than Beatdown or Hardcore music and leaving the stage when a band is playing some progressive music or clean parts, what is a shame. I feel sorry for every affected band, because i know for myself how it feels.

PSAB: What one band has played the most influence on your music?

LWD: Definitely Between The Buried And Me. Their Songwriting , especially their diversity has blown me away since the first time i listened to them, but Born of Osiris are also a very big influence on our music.

PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans?

LWD: We are grateful for every single one of you, and are happy to present our new EP "Fragile" soon. It will be on Bandcamp for "name your price" as our debut album is, so stay tuned and expect a music video and another new LP in 2015, it is already written ;)
