For starters, what bands were you guys a part of prior to Gored By A Deer? How long has the band been around?
We were all members of the Atlanta based metal band "Gored by a Deer'.
What’s the origin of that name and have you changed the band’s name before?
This will be the first name change the band has ever had. The new band name does stem from the original but, its something we've wanted to do for a long time. We all had some form of dislike towards the original name so we've kept things familiar by using the acronym but this is a total rebranding.
Who writes your songs? What are the main themes or topics for most of your songs and do you think these topics will change over time?
Its a group effort. We all come together and make it happen. Its an odd writing triangle, and we all have our strong suites, but it has become more and more efficient over the years. Subject matter has drastically fluctuated over the years. Lyrically on the newer material it has taken
a much more personal turn. Everyone will definitely learn a little bit about yours truly when the new music drops.
What bands are currently inspiring the music that you’re making?
That question used to be an easy one for us. The way things are now we pick and pull inspiration from such a plethora of newer and older bands it's hard to name just a few.
Was there a particular band/artist or concert that inspired you to start a band?
I can't speak for everyone in the band but as for me (Nevil) I was brought up on all the old hair metal bands of the 80's. All of those bands definitely peaked my interest in trying to do that for myself.
What do you do to prepare for a show? Any flexing, exercises, ect …
Personally, I'll run vocal exercises and try to get the blood flowing with some stretching... That and a shot or two of liquor never really hurts.
What has been the biggest highlight of the band’s career so far?
Another tough one. I'd have to give that to our tour up through the midwest back in 2012.
If you could tour with any bands, past or present, who would they be and why?
Hell, if its well promoted and set up I think we have some ideas but it could be anyone. We just like to do our thing and hangout.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Keep an eye out. We're coming back harder and stronger than you've ever heard us. Can't wait to rage with everyone again.
