CVLT Nation Artist to Artist Interview: Bloodiest Vs. Minsk
BLOODIEST Interviews MINSK
Like us, you’ve been through a shit ton of members (13 to our 14). How you feel about that?
Ha. At least it’s not 14…like some other band. Like you guys, we’ve been doing this for a long time. The number of years as a band is still higher than number of members, so that’s good! I will say that it still feels like every member change that’s happened was ultimately for the best. Once that stops being the case, we’ll hang it up. Every time someone new has come into the group, they took it somewhere it couldn’t have dreamed of going before. Every single time.
Who’s your favorite?
Zac has the best hair. Aaron gives the best hugs. Chris is the smart one, and the oldest. Kevin is handsome, and definitely the best drummer in the band, but no one likes Kevin… so there’s that.
How do you deal with postpartum depression?
Preemptive vasectomy. And long walks on the beach. And more fucking. And kittens.
With the tracks, or against?
Across the street, or down the road? You guys are far darker than I realized going into this. Are you asking for advice? We’ll let you know at the end of tour. Don’t screw this up before then.
If against….. how you going to spend the tons of tour cash you guys roll in?
We’ve got many extravagant plans for the piles of cash. We may get crazy and pay off the debts we racked up paying for these t-shirts we’re lugging around night to night. Maybe we’ll go buck wild and pay off the van maintenance, too. The possibilities are endless! If we’re lucky, we’ll even pay down our credit cards enough to buy planes tickets for the August European tour with Kowloon Walled City. How’s that for an unsolicited plug?
