PropertyOfZack Interview : : The Early November

propertyofzack:

The Early November hold a special place is so many of our hearts, and it was truly an honor to interview Joe Marro for a great new interview on PropertyOfZack. Joe and I discussed how The Early November went from playing a one-off show to reuniting for a new album, how the internal workings of the band have shifted since their break, the writing and recording process for their highly-anticipated album, future touring, and so much more. Please read up, it’s one of the best interviews we’ve had the pleasure of having on the site in quite some time!

So, an original reunion show at The Electric Factory was announced this past summer, and things have been getting increasingly busier for the band. When did it become clear that you wanted to actually make a record?
It was a totally gradual decision. Initially, and I mean this, we only intended to play one show at The Electric Factory. It’s not like we planned an “one and done” sort of thing, but we wanted to play one show to see how it would go. That show went overwhelmingly well, so we decided to add another. The Philly show was so much fun and people seemed to genuinely care so much so that it sparked us to make a record again. Right before the New Jersey show we decided to do a record.

I think emotions were running equally high for both fans and the band at all those shows. Can you talk about the shows a little bit?
The Philly show was without a doubt the most incredible time I’ve ever had on stage in 10 years of touring through two different bands. I think that was felt by the rest of the band as well. It was incredibly emotional to hear that response. We never really got anything like that when we were a band. We had great fans, but it was nothing that overwhelming. It was almost hard to play; all practice went out the window. It was kind of nauseating to the point with all of the emotion. We were a little more prepared for the New Jersey show and it felt awesome and a little more intimate just because of the size of the stage. Both shows were fantastic. The holiday shows were all awesome, and that sort of felt like we were a band on tour again. It wasn’t so spontaneous then and we had a little more planning and knew what was going on. All the shows were really fun and were smaller, and it was fun to play outside of the area we had played a few times. 

We’re obviously seeing new reunions every single day now, but some people like their old favorite bands to just tour and not put out more music. Did you take that into thought at all?
We thought about it, and it’s something that I’m conscious of. Every time that you see a band announce a reunion you question their motives. I do that less so now because I’m involved. Some bands might get back together for a large chunk of change because it’s all they have going on, but that’s not the case for the band. We were all doing our own individual thing. People had full time jobs where, on a yearly level, they probably made more money then while doing the band. We’re not making an insane amount of money to do this. It was a hiatus in the true sense of the word. We needed to take a break from the situations around us. We just want to let people know that we’re genuinely good friends and we do love playing in a band together, and why not do it while we can before things get too crazy in our personal lives. Ace has two kids, I just got married, and it’ll only get more and more difficult to do. We want to do it now while we can.

Was there automatically a spark back in the room for new material once you guys got rehearsing?
We probably decided to make a record a little earlier than November actually. We solidified things with the label around November, but it was probably only a month before then when we decided we wanted to record. But yeah, the first practice we played songs we hadn’t played in five years, but in between songs Ace would play riffs. One by one we’d start feeling them out and ask him what they were, and we thought they were really cool. It started on day one, really. Some of those little riffs will probably end up on the record. It was never intentional though. It was just a couple of guys who used to play everyday together doing what we used to do.

What am I doing?!

Every once and a while I’ll read a post on Absolute Punk about The Early November or HelloGoodbye and someone will briefly ask or wonder what bands I’m currently a part of. Today, while browsing the daily news and gossip I saw that my friend Auggie (of Little Indians, ex-YMAEWK) broke the news that he’s been playing with HGB in my position since TEN has reactivated…in a thread about guitar flipping no less! The internet has been a buzz (14 comments & counting!) with speculation and inquiry. 

In the past few months, TEN has awoke from hibernation, played a few shows, announced a new record & slowly started turning back on the necessary cogs & gears that allow a band to function. I, personally, have been dedicating a ton of time managing a few bands and, probably most important, got married. At first, we really didn’t know how much we we’re going to do with TEN so I felt I could still remain a active member of HGB. As one show turned into two and two turned into a record and so on, I felt I should assess what I could and could not commit time to. I spoke to Forrest and let him know that I just don’t think I can do all of the necessary touring that are required for two bands. Even with TEN’s modest schedule, there inevitably will be some date conflicts and the last thing I would want to do is not give him enough time to find a suitable replacement. Sure, things could have been booked to accommodate both bands and so forth, but I don’t think that would have been fair to either band or my wife. If anything, I was looking to lessen the amount of time spent on the road and focus on home life & artist management.

It was a super hard decision to come to. Forrest is one of my closest friends and I absolutely love him. I’m incredibly proud of the work we did together. “Would It Kill You?” is a brilliant record that I’m so happy I could be a part of. I feel I learned as much from Forrest and playing in that band as I did from TEN. We got to go to some of the raddest places on earth and do things I never thought I’d do. Seriously, I know I’m lucky. Also, the friends made through that band will last a lifetime. Travis, Andy, Aaron, Michale, Wiz, Ryan, Auggie, & Chris are all amazing people and players and it was my honor to share a stage with them at one time or another.

Hellooodbye’s future is limitless. I’ve heard a few new songs and they’re unbelievable. Forrest is a criminally underrated songwriter not to mention a snappy dresser and I hope nothing but the very best. Very exciting things are to come from him and HGB. If situations are different one day, and he’ll have me, I’d be honored to play with them again. But seriously, enough about me.
