At their last show in Munich I did an interview with Indecision from NY who impressed me a lot with their
statements towards conspiracy theories in which I absolutely believe in! So I was kinda curious on what they had to say!
Would you first like to introduce yourself?
I'm Justin and I play guitar.
I'm Steve and I play bass.
Release the cure was about conspiracy theories? Could you please give some further explanations?
It's not about all conspiracy theories. It's just about the one, that the governments created AIDS and
other terminal illnesses to make money of preventing medicines. And the release the cure theory is that the
government doesn't want to release the cure for all those deseases because of all the money that is involved.
You also talked about the illuminati in the booklet. So what do you think looking at a Dollar bill?
It says "The New World Order" in Latin on it's back. It's a bunch of theories, that are kind of popular to a
bunch of people but not so much in the hardcore scene. It's kinda like a buzzword until you realize what it
actually is. It is a real thing. And we try to bring those ideas that are somehow new to the people that listen
to hardcore music or whatever. So we just try to bring the information out there and let people decide it they
think it's too hard to believe or not. But I think that the "release the cure" theory is more like a tangible
theory than UFOs and stuff like that which is more science fiction. So we picked something you could actually
read about it and it's kinda believable, it's not to far fetched.
Some people think it's far fetched. But I think it's better to sing about something that might or might not
be true. At least it's different than to have lyrics about being Straight Edge, being tough or being from the
streets in New York or whatever. That stuff is all so boring and pretty fake.
In thoughts on convenience you talk about convenience goods that make life easier. But what do you think of the
As far as it's about communication, the government will be able to track down every move you make. But as
far as communication in the hardcore scene, communication is the one thing that keeps it together really.
It's important and it's cool because you can talk to people from all over the world and it's cheap and in
that part it's very positive but it gets negative when you get into how more and more it's gonna be tracked
down. And people will know where you were at what time. And that is negative as it's gonna be reality.
I think it's a good tool right now because it's not regulated by the government yet. But as soon as they figure out
how to regulate it then it's gonna be more a danger than a useful tool. But also it's just another tool
for people with wealth and power to give people new toys to keep them in their homes and destracted by like
new websites that don't inherite your life. It's just another distraction.
Also it makes people lazy because you'll be able to sit in your house and get whatever you want. I know
people that buy groceries online. (Big laughter in the room) It's pretty funny because I was just like
"why don't you just walk to the store, it's just two streets away" and people can just buy stuff in their house.
People won't know how to socialize in the future. It kinda started with those home shopping programs and that
was in the 80'ies and now it's the internet. So you won't have any reason to leave their house. I think
there are some people that want every thing to be so convenient and everything to be at the touch of your fingers.
I don't know if it's the utopia that people think it is. I don't know if it's fun to get everything you want
without leaving your house. What the fuck is that? It's like living in a mall all the time.
Do you guys consider yourself being a political band or political persons?
Not political in the sense that we have lyrics about specific politics like Trial or Carthasis who are friends
of ours. We don't have specific political lyrics but in the sense that everything is political in modern life.
We have a different approach than all the political bands but I think we have the same goals.
So what do you think of the presidential elections in the USA?
I think it's a bunch of bullshit. I mean I think it's good that democracy is still intact in the USA but at
this point running for presidency has become more of a monetary game and it's not anyone's game, it's who
has the most money. As you can see like Bush is throwing out millions of dollars so he can brainwash people
voting for him so democracy really isn't democracy when that's happening. It sort of sucks, you know.
How was the tour with Sick of it all? Was it sort of strange to play the huge venues?
The only thing that was weird was playing giant clubs with barriers and that sucks and Sick of it all hated
it too. It like a lot people say that when a band get's so big they don't have any choice. But having a chance
to play in front of so many people was really cool and it was fun, we learned a lot from touring with them
and we've toured in the US as well.
It was nice as they considered us being a band that they wanted to take on tour with. Because you grow up
listening to them and they had such a big influence on hardcore and all of a sudden you are on tour with them.
So it's a big deal to all of us.
What are your future plans?
After this tour we are off for about two weeks and then we are on tour for about 8 weeks in the US. And then
after that we're gonna take some time off to write the new record. In August we're on tour for approximately a whole
year. Right after "Release the cure" came out we went on tour. So we'll take off the rest of the year to write
the new record. And we'll be back out again in January I guess.
Some final words?
Thanks for the interview.
I love you all!
Thank you too!
