These Four Walls - These Four Walls Newsletter Interview

06 May 2007 // An interview by Shade
Thanks to Chris for these answers:

1) What is your greatest achievement?

Being in a band with 4 other guys who are all as committed as myself and chasing the same dream.

2) What do you think could be done to make NZ music even better?

Have councils provide venues to harbour music, instead of shutting down venues who are only trying to help out bands by giving them a place to play.

3) Where do you see yourselves in 5 years?

Being recognised as one of the most hard working bands in New Zealand, and overseas showing the world what bands from lil' ol' New Zealand can do?

4) What is the best thing about making music?

Being able to provide an outlet for any creativeness you foster, and knowing that most things you put out there people can relate too. Or just getting up on stage and playing to a crowd of people who enjoy the sound that you've crafted.

5) What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

Always have your game face on, and be as professional as possible! Have fun while you're doing what you love, and don't do it because someone else tells you too! Don't let someone with tall poppy syndrome deter you from making music.
 

About These Four Walls

These Four Walls have achieved a lot in the last two and a half years. Since releasing their debut album Down Falls An Empire in September 2009, they have had two songs reach the Top 10 on the Rock Charts (Sweet December, Lay it Out), the album itself reached #22 on the Album charts, and also set a record for pre-orders on www.amplifier.co.nz, beating the previous record set by Fat Freddy’s Drop.

The band has supported international acts such as Disturbed, Nickelback, Karnivool and The Butterfly Effect; they’ve toured Australia and undertaken multiple headlining tours of New Zealand, consistently growing their fanbase.

And most impressively, they’ve done all of this as an unsigned, independent act. Their successes to date have been the result of hard work, a dedication to crafting great rock songs, and an impressive live show that incorporates their powerful, heavy riffing with soaring melodies and a tight, energetic performance.
