The Nightmare Police have a new album out this Friday. Check out our interview with them on the album, their future plans, and more.
When the band started in 2014, did you have any idea of where it would go?
None at all, we just wanted to write music that people could relate to and hope that we could exorcise some demons.
Losing The Light is out on June 9th. What was the writing process like for the EP? Who did you record it with?
The writing process was actually the best I’ve ever been a part of. The 3 of us just blend so well together when we write it’s almost an infinite flow of ideas. We wrote 12 songs for this EP and picked 5 to record. We recorded the drums with Brett Romnes and Frank Bones, the remainder was all done with Frank Bones.
How would you say the band has progresses since if only I could…?
We have become more personal and raw. This is us shouting out. Can you hear us?
What do you have planned after the EP is out? Going on tour?
Lots of local shows for now, we just did a short Northeast run but expect us down the East Coast and the Midwest soon.
Are there plans to work on a full-length next?
Maybe, but you didn’t hear that from us!
Do any of you have hobbies outside of the band? And if so, what are they?
Jesus is a tattoo artist and does amazing work. Joe is a handy man, give him something and he’ll fix it or build it for you. I’m a gamer but a bad one, I should probably stick to music.
Any local bands that you think everyone should be checking out?
Our favorite local band right now is MJT. There are so many great ones on Long Island right now though it’s hard to name them all.
