21 Jun 2006 // An interview by Sailor
So the tour's coming to an end, looking forward to it or wishing it could go on longer?

Yea for sure, it's been so amazing out on the road playing tonnes of shows, yeah I wish we could just tour constantly, it's totally fun.

Gratz on the single 'Seasons', how do you feel about having a single

It's been real good aye, it's what we all want to do, be musicians and play music for people. So it's a good feeling.

Any plans on a new song coming out soon or even an album?

Um a new single is in the works at the moment. Plans for an album, yes but when, we're not sure, hopefully not too far away.

5Star Fallout isn't your typical pop-punk band, yous play a wicked set and it's just full of energy, who are some of your influences?

The Lost Prophets, Foo Fighters, Story Of The Year, The Beatles, Sum41, Yellowcard, Finch, Alkaline Trio, Led Zepplin, Queen, U2, The Living End, Coldplay, AFI, Goldfinger, Millencolin, Frank Sinatra, The Ataris, Jimi Hendrix, Shihad, Nirvana, Blink 182, Greenday, Guns N Roses, NOFX just to name a few!!

Who's in charge of the lyrics? Do you have a set pattern to how you write a song?

Um no a pattern really, it just happens if someone has an idea and we just do it.

How did you come up with the name of the band? Some people often wonder this, as it's a real rad name.

Well the 5 of us, we all wanna be big stars one day and be so famous that we have a massive fight and sue eachother, so that will be the 5Star Fallout

About 5star Fallout

One band culminating in one amazing act of love and lust, the climax of which is a spectacle not to be missed. Much like two trains on a collision course, 5star Fallout has been the result of two forces coming together and instead of ending in destruction, has grown into what will prove to be a great New Zealand rock act.

With thoughtfully arranged guitar riffs, dynamic vocal harmonies, and a raw energy and sound, 5star Fallout aims to write songs that everyone can draw meaning from and relate to.

The five members of 5star Fallout have come from different areas of the country and have different musical backgrounds. Four of our members, John McCaffrey, Peter Williams, Andrew Kerr and Michael Murphy have all been high school friends from Taupo and have been in various bands. Adam Stevenson hails from Greytown and has also been involved in bands throughout school.
