Hard work, persistence, and dedication make up the Albany, NY Nu-Metalcore outfit Somewhere To Call Home. The group is currently gearing up to release their new EP, “Panic Disorder“! Set to arrive August 30th! Somewhere To Call Home released their newest song “LEECH” last month to give fans a taste of the new EP! Currently the band is out on their EP release tour with Reign and Deadculture. Somewhere To Call Home has shown growth after growth with each of their releases – all stays true with “Panic Disorder“. We had the honor to sit and chat with the band, read up below!
Walk us through the process that it took to create your new EP, “Panic Disorders”?
This EP was constructed and written in a shorter time than most of our material is written. We approached this EP by going to the studio with constructed tracks and spent hours writing and re-writing parts till we felt they were solid enough to move on. This meant we spent alot more time in studio, but we believe that is was well worth it. This way, we could have a lot more hands on creation with how the final tracks would come out as. Versus just tracking demos upon demos on our own. We believe it’s important to experiment with ways to create music. There’s no bad way to build a track or write an album. The most important thing is to keep the big picture in mind at all times.
The lyrical content is experiences some of you guys have experienced mentally, how was it to write about that?
Writing lyrics has always been an outlet for some of us. Even if it’s writing words to a song that hasn’t been written yet. So when it comes time to write lyrics to instrumental tracks, we have those words ready. This EP is full of our thoughts, fears, hate, sadness, and anxiety. And we hope that people can relate to us and realize that no one’s alone in the endless fight against those feelings and emotions
You guys are tour active, tell us some of the best moments you’ve had on the road?
We’ve done so many things as a band across the country together its hard to pick. We’ve kayaked in Florida, visited Hollywood, hung out in Texas, traveled to Canada, We have made so many friends. Music has showed us alot and we genuinely wouldn’t trade it for anything and were excited to see what comes next.
What bands inspire you guys?
We take inspiration from all sorts of music. Any type of music can inspire an idea or song. We all listen to vastly different genres ranging from deathcore to pop. We take a lot of inspiration from within our genre such as Sworn In, Yüth Forever, Barrier and VCTMS. But we also take aspects from other bands that aren’t specific to our genre like Slipknot, The Plot In You, Korn and Motionless In White.
