Con Etiquette took some time to answer questions about their latest EP, what comes next for the band, and more. You can check out the interview below and listen to The Company We Keep over at Bandcamp.
When the band first started, what were the expectations?
Consistently write good songs and fun. We lucked out, Antonino had an ep that was released a few months prior to the original lineup. We used that as a platform and sculpted our sound from there.
You released The Company We Keep in December 2017. How was the EP received?
TCWK has been getting overwhelming positive feedback. Excluding ourselves, there have been approximately 8 people who have listened to it, 7 are direct relatives. Some of the responses have been, “cool”, “aight” and “not bad!”.
Who did you work with on the EP?
We worked with Greg Thomas and Chris Yeti at Silver Bullet Studios in Burlington,CT.
You’re playing a show with Fossil Youth in February. How did that opportunity arise?
One part internet and one part luck, we got an email and we’re stoked, that entire bill fucking shreds. We’re also playing with Have Mercy and Household March 12th at the Webster Underground in Hartford.
What are some of the band’s goals for 2018 now that the EP is out?
Play as many shows as possible.
What’s the favorite show that the band has played so far?
Probably our record release show last December with Such Gold and Wess Meets West. Every band had a ton of energy, and we all thrive off that, it gets us high, with the assistance of marijuana of course.
Do you have any hobbies outside of the band?
Yes! Vin enjoys meatball subs. Antonino paints pictures of cats in outer space. Wes enjoys fantasy basketball leagues. Dan excels at enjoying the San Diego sun while we answer these.
Thanks for your time! Where can our readers keep up with the band?
