It appears that 2013 is the year for promo videos with parental advisory notices. Or at least January will be known for them. Lower Than Atlantis‘ latest video for ‘Go On Strike’ fits in this category. Part performance, part schoolkid gesture laden, watch it below in all its third finger glory.

Interview: Dec Hart and Eddy Thrower of Lower Than Atlantis at Reading 2012

 
By on Tuesday, 4th September 2012 at 11:00 am
 

Just to confirm it, this band are not gay. They spent half of our interview stressing the fact that while they enjoy a good bit of male company, they are not in any way homosexuals. No, really, they aren’t. But were any of us thinking that?

No, when you saw Lower Than Atlantis in the title, you though that these fellas are one of the rising stars of 2012.

But still, they want me to tell you they’re NOT GAY. Members of the band Eddy Thrower and Dec Hart stressed this, while telling me where there musical influences lie and having a bit of a general bro down together.

Drummer Eddy, whose eloquence shone through, said, “you know that guy Conor Maynard, we get a lot of our influences from him. LOVE THAT GUY.” (Before he bursts into a rendition of ‘Can’t Say No’…) The band are just chilling at Reading when we caught up with them, trying to find their bearings. “I’ve never been here before, so it’s pretty cool just being on the site.”

On the other hand, the band’s bassist Dec Hart is a bit of a Reading vet: “I’ve been here loads of times before, so it’s cool to be on the other side of the fence.”

At Reading, their set goes down an absolute storm. Guitars roar above the seething mass of adolescents arrayed before the band. Eddy and Dec provide the engine room to a juggernaut of a performance. Afterwards, the crowd leave the stage, with only a few words on their tongues. Like “I might download them at home”. (And possibly that they aren’t gay.)

The plans for the future are shaping up well for the band and with as they begin to gain a huge fanbase, one has a feeling that what happens next could make or break this outfit. “The record’s going to come out in a few months, then there’s a headline tour. We’re gonna record a new video, have another tour and get ourselves on Radio 1 and then we’re gonna get loads of chicks not dicks.” (See, they aren’t gay.)

“We appreciate everyone who loves our band and who cares about our band, who buys our CDs, has bought a t-shirt or who’s going to come and see us play live.

“Anyone can do anything, just get a band together and you can play amazing festivals like this.”

Special thanks to Dec and Eddy for their time and Libby for sorting this interview.
