How did you guys meet?
We all me through different bands playing shows together. Some of those bands fell apart and we kind of pieced ourselves together.
How did you guys choose your band name?
The band originally came from a list of different band names that were just random ideas. But over time, as we all took in the band as an escape from all the other bullshit in our lives, we realized the band is something we all consider a home to us, therefore, Call It Home.
Who are you biggest influences?
Honestly we get influences from everywhere. The classic metal bands like Linkin Park, Korn, Slipknot. Newer bands as well and we do have a bit of a poppy side so we like to grab influences from pop artists as well like Katy Perry.
What’s one of the craziest things to happen on tour or at a show?
We've had a lot of crazy tour stories. Once we got stuck in a blizzard with another band and had to pull over to find a place to sleep. We ended up driving up an icy hill and both bands got stuck. We had to reverse both vans and trailers down the hill while cars where sliding into snow banks and crashing next to us. That was definitely one of the craziest.
What are you guys working on?
We've been working on releasing our full length album for awhile now. It's been a long process but making it perfect and being able to release it to as many people as possible is going to be well worth the wait.
What’s your favorite venue to play?
We love Thompson House in Newport, KY, Reverb in Reading, PA & one of our hometown venues Revolution in Amityville, NY is always an awesome time
What venues would you want to play in the future?
We'd love to play Chain Reaction in Anaheim. That's like THE venue everyone wants to play. Also the Masquerade in Georgia would be pretty tight and The Shelter in Michigan as well.
If you could tour with any bands who would it be?
There's a lot of bands we'd love to tour with. I think one band we can all agree on is Slipknot. Those dudes are crazy and their live show is mind blowing.
