1. How you guys doin? How did the show at Mojo 13 go?

We are doing ok. Trying to get up and running again. Mojo 13 was good. Always is a good time. Chuck from Bulldog Pro (who puts on the shows) always takes good care of us.

2. How is the new material coming along? Can we see a release date soon?

Well, we are currently in the process of moving to a new rehearsal studio so we haven't been writing. It was going to be finished in 1 month, it's now on month 3. As soon as we get in there and settle in, the songs will come. we all have some good ideas to work on. Real brutal stuff is all i can say. As far as recording goes, probably wont be until next year sometime.

3. You guys have gone through hardships as a band, what keeps you still fighting on to have your music heard?

Well with our band, this is more about fun for us then a job. We are all older and have full time jobs so this band is more of an outlet for us to hang out and have fun. We do have our hardships and arguments but its not as serious as some other bands because this really isn't our livelihood you know.

4. Any crazy show stories?

hahahaha no not really, we are all old and the crazy times are behind us -hahahaha. every show is just alot of fun hanging out with everyone really.

5. What are some of your influences?

Me personally...Iron Maiden. Hands down greatest band ever. I like Testament too. Basically, we all collectively like the older metal bands...some newer bands though as well.

6. If you could tour with three bands who would they be?

Easy...Iron Maiden, Testament, and Metallica from like '84.

7. What are your thoughts on illegal music downloading?

Well, I can see why artists who make a living off of playing music would be pissed at downloading music because really its taking away from them making a living. For us though, if people did it, it wouldn't bother me at all. I mean, if they liked it enough to do that and say tell their friends about us and we get more exposure, then do it.

8. What is your favorite song to play live and why?

A Loss Of Blood and Then Some. Song kicks you in the face right from the first note. Has some really cool guitar parts too.

9. What are you currently listening to?

Man I listen to so much music its sick-hahahaha. Right now I'm listening to the new Acacia Strain, Slipknot, Dragonforce, Agraceful, and Underoath.

10. What's next for Witness To The End?

Well, we just were on a compilation cd for Broken Hope Productions. Awesome cd with a lot of killer bands from the PA area. Other then that, finally move into our new rehearsal room and start writing new songs and record. Also, we are really looking to play more shows. The places to play are really becoming few and far between now a days unless you want to sell 50 tickets in like east bumble fuck PA where we've never been-hahahahaha.

11. Any shoutouts?

Any one who supports our band thank you. All our freinds bands out there and Mike thanks for doing this interview with us. We really appreciate it. Take care. - Nick
