What is the best thing about being in Fingerprint?

mostly through myspace and email and talking to people at gigs before and after we've played
What rumour would you like to start about yourselves?
rumours are bad

Have a certain element of seriousness to practices and recordings but don't stop having fun. also make sure that everyone in the band is heading towards the same goal what ever it may be

Also played at Canterburys Creation bar with support of four other bands, also played at the Dux De Lux, Esplanade Tavern and The Jetset Lounge. Our biggest gig to date was opening for Elemno P and The Heavy Jones Trio at our orientation week at Canterbury uni we have also opened for an international act at the esplanade called Nashville pussy. We have had an interview on New Zealands newest music channel ALT TV trying to promote our new E.P, the Identity.
Our music is best described as alternative rock consisting of some up beat songs with some edgy guitar skills and some and energetic drumming all combined with catchy vocals. As each of the members stems from different types of musical background, it has allowed fingerprint to create something different and diverse.
