From: New South Wales, Australia


1. What are your names and roles in the band?

Turner – vocals
Suspect – guitar/backing vocals
Gunner – guitar
Kesava – bass
Ben aka The Rig – percussion
Misztal – triangle/management

2. How did the band come about?

Me(Suspect) and Rig started jamming in yr 9 (2002) when we realized both of us played instruments,
It just kept growing from there. Gunner was a family friend of mine actually like a brother, he had started playing guitar around the same time as me and we had a couple jams with him he wasn’t too keen at first but then once turner jumped on board things took shape and everything started have more meaning.

3. The cover art for the CD is interesting, how did that come about?

The cover really in no way reflects the EP or who we are, it was simply rushed we just needed
Something so we could get the CD pressed asap. It has no religious meaning to us, some of us are even atheist.
But we were after something classy and not to gore/death themed as most bands are doing, so it worked out well

4. Where is your favorite place to play? Why?

Wollongong Youth Centre, just for the fact that everyone from everywhere comes out, it’s a free show and always has the best vibe/atmosphere. They shut the venue down because of shootings and we are yet to hear about it re opening.

5. The name of the band is very unique, does it mean something in particular?

To stick together; be united; hold fast, as parts of the same mass

6. Can we expect any new material soon?

Kohere is booking the studio for mid January and I think its safe to say you will be hearing some new tracks very soon.

7. What's your favorite song to play live and why?

Any of our new songs, we’ve grown apart from our EP I think "Big Dog" and "Vendetta" are the only 2 tracks that are similar to what we are writing and reflect what we are trying to.

8. I saw you are hooked up with EDGILLUSTRATIONS, how did you hook up with them?

Edgil is a good mate of mine and an awesome designer, he’s only 17. check out his work!

9. What are you currently listening to?

Emmure – Goodbye To The Gallows, August Burns Red – Messengers, Misery Signals.

10. What's next for Kohere?

Hopefully a national tour! In 08 after recording our new material.

11. Any shoutouts?

Out to all our local friends
