From: Forestville, CT
Sounds like: Metal

1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name “Disease Party” and is there any meaning behind it?

So I'm pretty sure most all of our dads started us up on the guitar, and fast forward a decade or two and we all ended up in the right place at the right time on Facebook and just added each other and started jammin. Disease Party was one of our guitarists kinda side projects and we just kinda figured that was us now, an infectious ball drop.

2. What do you want people to take away from your "Tales From The Slimehole" EP?

Fun and that raw can still be polished and that it's just what you can get from what we created, whether it be a little of nothing or a lot of something.

3. What's your favorite track to play live?

We're all pretty different on this, some tracks or more challenging live cause they're more in depth or more fun cause they're easier but all in all "Wayne vs The Fly" is pretty mid range for fun and a challenge.

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

Locally? definitely Intercourse, Gadgets, and Imperium Mortis, as for big bands, though we may not entirely fit their style, Converge, The Red Chord, and Rings of Saturn, we got the chunk topping.

5. What are your three desert island albums that you'd never get tired of listening to?

Maudlin of the Well, Gorguts, Steely Dan, Cryptopsy, Dillinger Escape Plan, and Between The Buried And Me.

6. What’s your take on the current state of Metal?

You really have to dig deep to find bands that are inspired and aren't just up all on that doo dada doo doo shiz.

7. What’s the current music scene like there in Connecticut both locally and state wide?

CT needs more all ages shows (bars are fun to play but a lot of people who are 7 shots in don't remember any bands) and there's a lot of real talent but people need to step out of their comfort zones.

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

There are worse crimes that do nothing except negative consequences for people, it may be a crime but the positive side of downloading illegally is that people get to hear someones music, that's worth it we think.

9. What’s next for Disease Party?

What's next? Maybe a Slim Jim/Lil Chubs sponsorship. other than that, writing, recording, walking our pets, and getting sticky.

10. Any shoutouts?

Wayne, Aron, our Moms and Dads, Jeff Goldblum, Jess, Angie, Mike Lackey, Roma Pizza, all of our friends an family, anyone we missed, Chauncey, The Sliz and Crispo.
