Reverse The Rules
From: Versailles, France
Sounds like: Hardcore


1. How did the band come together and form? Who thought of the name “Reverse The Rules” and is there any meaning behind it?

We knew each others for years in one way or another, on stage or on the road with our previous bands. We experienced both sides of what to be in a band means. So we decided to take profit of these experiences to our benefit: and then RTR was born, guided by both our passion for the music and for the stage. Concerning the name of the band, we choose it all together, it truly suits to our vision of music and the way we wanted to do it. We learned about the rules, now it's time to reverse them.

2. What do you want listeners to take away from your music?

We do it with our heart and soul, hope listeners will caption this. And if they don't, well nevermind.

3. How would you describe your music to the average listener?

Our music is meant to be simple, aggressive and motivating.

4. What can people expect from your live show?

Blood, sweat, tears.

5. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?

Madball, Lionheart, Merauder.

6. Any crazy show stories?

Every show is a crazy story. I'll keep these for my grandsons.

7. What’s your take on the current state of metalcore?

It's yours to say.

8. What’s the current music scene like there in France?

It's not what it was 10 or 15 years ago anymore. Still, there are a few bands known and recognized as national and international artists.

9. What’s your take on legal/illegal music downloading?

We download to discover and buy to listen further.

10. What’s next for Reverse The Rules?

Our first EP was realized in early 2013. What we want for now is taking stage to present our music.

11. Any shoutouts?

Haters gonna hate us.
