Prowler - Prowler Newsletter Interview

01 Apr 2013 // An interview by Shade

Greg answered the following questions for muzic.net.nz:

What inspired you to start Prowler?

Rahhpz, Dave and I started jamming mainly because all of our previous bands had split and we needed to keep playing music. Then one day Everdt came to jam and drink beers, he screamed into a mic and we busted out three tracks in one night that blew us away. A year later we convinced Geoff to play bass for us and it’s been dick jokes ever since.

Which one of your songs are you most proud of, and why?

I think every new track we write is my favourite, but we definitely have a few standouts that I can’t wait to hear recorded. We have a track that has been in progress for a while now that gives me goose bumps every time we play it. But that is all I can say about that track. It’s a secret.

What NZ musicians or bands would you like to see more of, and why?

Suckafish, Blacklick and Not OK. Check them out, you will see why.

How would you describe Prowler’s music in one sentence?

Black Sabbath Vs The Bronx.

Tell us about Prowler’s next release.

We are currently finishing tracks for our first release on Deadboy Records that will hopefully be out mid year..... All killer, no filler. Nah but seriously, it’s going to be good.

What can we expect to see from Prowler over the next year?

2013 is shaping up to be a busy year. We supported The Bouncing Souls in February and have been working on the record since which we will be recording with Chazz Hill-Hayr in early April. We have a few shows coming up in Auckland and will hopefully make it to Wellington sometime soon as well. After the record is tracked we will book an NZ/Aus tour which will most likely be around August. Watch this space...

 

About Prowler

Prowler formed in early 2011 from the blood of a hundred dead dreams. Collectively, Prowler has power, passion and hooks. Having shed the skin of their humble beginnings, Prowler has moved from a four to a five pronged attack. They have become a heavier, meaner beast; yet still retain the speed and urgency of their original vision.

2013 has been a productive year for Prowler with the release of their debut full length album Enter The Night in September, a handful of Australian shows, international acts under their belt - supporting Bring Me the Horizon to sold out crowds at the Powerstation (amongst others) and comprehensive gigs within New Zealand.

2014 was also an impressive year for Prowler, supporting The Misfits in Auckland and opening The Big Day Out.
