1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name “Before It's Too Late” and is there any meaning behind it?
We had all been in past projects with someone else from our current band. We all kept in touch after those projects came to an end and eventually this lead to us all getting together one day, which resulted in Before It’s Too Late. We all have different influences in music that helped to create our current sound. Our sound is influenced pop punk, grudge, metal, and pop.
The name "Before It’s Too Late" was brought to the band by Nick. He got the name idea from someone in his psychology class. During a class discussion on suicide prevention, someone had said that they wanted to help others Before It’s Too Late.
2. What do you want listeners to take away from the "Miscommunication" EP?
Each of the songs tells a unique story of coming face to face with different problems. The two key points we want listeners to take away from our EP would be “hope” and “you are not alone.” Music has helped each of us come to terms with different aspects of our lives, so we would like to be able to give that back to others.
3. What can people expect from your live show?
You can bet that at least one thing will go wrong, but we always manage to deliver a high energy, emotion filled performance.
4. What's your favorite track to play live?
Kelli - “No Name”.
Chai- “Hurricane in Me”.
Nick- “No Name”.
Mike- “Message From Below”.
Bailey- “Go To Hell”.
5. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?
State Champs, Mayday Parade and Neck Deep.
6. Any crazy show stories?
During a circle pit at one of our shows, a man dressed up in a shark suit and did a spin kick off the stage.
7. What’s your take on the current state of pop punk?
New Jersey has a thriving pop punk scene. The amount of energy and raw talent here is unreal. However, there could be more support for the local music scene. Nationally, we feel that pop punk is growing at a fast rate. There are more bands, more shows, and fans. It’s really a great time to be in a band.
8. What’s the current music scene like there in New Jersey both locally and state wide?
We feel that our local music scene is growing, but the music scene up in North Jersey is much more popular.
9. What’s your take on legal/illegal music downloading?
We as a band are against illegally downloading music. We believe that people should support all artists.
10. What’s next for Before It's Too Late?
We hope to play more shows than ever in 2017, expand our fan base, and hopefully release a new record later in the year.
11. Any shoutouts?
Thank you to our families and friends for their constant love and support. Also, thank you to any venue and booking agent for any shows they have helped us get. Lastly, thank you to From the Depths for giving us this opportunity.
