Interview: Satyr

Atlanta experimentalists Satyr launched their debut EP "Neutrino!" earlier this year, and the band answered our questions about it. Read more below.
Alright, first thing is first. Before we dive into all the music stuff, how's life?
Life is good. We are enjoying the band and touring life. Kind of hard to work around work and school schedules but all in all everything is going well. 
Speaking of new music, you have an EP. What can people expect from “Neutrino!”?
Neutrino has a good mix of emotion, technicality, and tenacity, that we think is similar to music we all love to listen to. 

What was it like working on the release?
Recording the ep was a very fun experience. Working with our engineer corey led to a lot of creativity and teamwork that really helped the record shine. We felt comfortable and happy while tracking which all helped ideas flow. 

Are there any touring plans in support to “Neutrino!”?
We have been playing as many out of state shows as possible to help promote this EP. People have been responding well to it.

While we are on the subject of touring, what countries would you love to tour?
We’d love to continue touring America and hopefully make it up to Canada and Europe some day.

Who and what inspires you the most?
We are inspired mainly by major post hardcore and progressive rock/metal bands like Dance Gavin Dance, Meshuggah, Hail the Sun, The Fall of Troy, Periphery, Animals as Leaders, etc. 

What other genres of music do you listen to? Have any of the other genres you listen to had any impact on your playing?
We listen to a lot of post hardcore and Prog rock/metal as well as math rock and emo among other things. We’ve all been listening to heavier music lately, lots of Prog metal and metalcore, so the new stuff we’ve been writing has been drifting to the heavier side. 

I really appreciate you giving us your time today. Is there anything else you would like to tell us and the fans before we wrap things up?

Be on the lookout for a full length sometime in 2019.

"Neutrino!" is available from Bandcamp.
