His Masters Voice - Family of Strangers Tour - His Masters Voice Interview

24 Apr 2017 // An interview by jdiddynz

With the Family of Strangers NZ tour kicking off next Friday the 28th of April at the Darkroom in Christchurch, it was high time I caught up with various members of These Four Walls, Armed in Advance, and His Masters Voice to talk music, pockets, spirit animals and sausages. Here’s what went down with His Masters Voice.

His Masters Voice - Brandon Bott

Hi. How you guys doing?

Pretty good. We’ve been busy finishing off our latest EP and gearing up for the release in the next couple of months. 

You guys seem to be out on the road a bit, how does it feel to be on tour again? 

It’s great, we always have a mean time playing out of Auckland. We’ve met so many good people over the last few years. It’s always cool to go to new places we haven’t played before too. More recently we’ve been playing weekends here and there and not really blocks of touring so that is a bit different for us this time.

What are you looking forward to most on the tour? 

Playing with bands we haven’t played with before is always cool. I think we may have played with Armed in Advance before, but that was a while ago. Also a couple of venues we haven’t played before, the Darkroom in Christchurch and Totara Street in Tauranga, so we’re really looking forward to that.

What can punters expect from the shows? 

I think it’ll be a pretty good mix of a few different facets of Rock and Roll. Something for everyone as P.T. Barnum would say.

How do you think the more bluesy sound of HMV will go down with the audiences? 

Hopefully quite well, I guess it depends on the audiences on the night. Hopefully there will be a few faces from gigs gone by at the shows, and we’re always looking to win over some new punters. We always put everything into our set and try to entertain the crowd as best we can, in our own way. We really enjoy playing live, probably more than anything else, and I think that comes across in our performances.

Which of the other bands are you looking forward to playing with/seeing the most? 

That’s a really hard question because I haven’t seen any of the other bands recently, so I’m looking forward to seeing all of them. I’ve never had the chance to see These Four Walls live before so that will be good.

If you were a sausage what flavour would you be? 

Dolphin.

Friday April 28th – Darkroom, Christchurch
Saturday April 29th – Valhalla, Wellington

About His Masters Voice

Formed late 2012, His Masters Voice are inspired by legends like Buddy Guy, BB King and Black Sabbath.

Their sound evokes the Classic-Rock greats such as Deep Purple, the Doors and Led Zeppelin, mashed together with a sprinkling of Motown and icons such as the Beatles.

Musically, the band identifies with a new wave of progressive rock/blues such as Graveyard, Blues Pills, Orchid and Heart Attack Alley.

Imagine the love child of Foreigner and Fall Out Boy raised by a pack of wolves with a penchant for 80’s metal riffs the TRM sound is uncompromisingly rock.
