-Interview- (1/25/24)
1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name "Someday Saturday" and is there any meaning behind it?

Most of us in the band started music at a young age getting the love of music from our families or music instructors through school. Someday Saturday was started through mutual friends and we developed our sound by combining some of our favorite music genres. We landed on the name “Someday Saturday,” after brain storming some ideas. The two finalists were “Monday Night Bar Fight,” which became the name of our first single and “Someday Saturn.” But after a few jokes were made about not being able to get our schedules to line up we said “maybe we’ll get to practice someday Saturday,” and we never looked back.

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

We want people to be able to use our music as an escape from the daily grind. Hoping they are able to forget about the bullshit we all go through with our lyrics and music.

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

You can definitely hear pop punk, especially in our lyrics, with a flare of metal core in our rhythms and break downs.

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

A Day to Remember, Beartooth, and Sum 41.

5. How has Covid affected what you do?

Covid really presented us with two problems. The first being when everything shut down because we were in the middle of recording our first EP “Harbor Shift.” We were able to finish once the studio reopened but it pushed our release date back a good bit. The second problem, which affected all artists, was that all venues were closed making it so we weren’t able to book shows.

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

We are pumped that there has been a rise in popularity recently! For a few years it seemed that pop punk was on its way out but with many artists, especially the genres founders, releasing new albums it gives us hope that there are still plenty of people who love to rock out to pop punk.

7. What's the current music scene like there in Ohio?

Being from the small city of Steubenville, OH there really isn’t much of a music scene. Thankfully, we have made some great connections with some local bars and music venues that give us most of shows, especially, down towards Wheeling, WV. Our closest big city is Pittsburgh, PA but we haven’t had any luck getting anything booked up that way just yet.

8. What’s your take on the royalties that streaming services pay out to artists?

Our take on royalties from streaming services is that artists don’t make enough money to sustain music production, unless you are able to make it big. This is why live shows are so important because all the money we earn goes towards recording new music.

9. What's next for Someday Saturday?

We are currently working on our next EP, hoping to start recording in late spring. Once we have new music, we will be working on releasing all new merch along with our favorite part of new material, new music videos.

10. Any shoutouts?
