WARBLY JETS X DAMAGED / GOODS
Damaged / Goods: Can you please tell us how the band was formed and how you came up with your band name?
Warbly Jets: The band was originally started as a recording project by myself and Julien in NYC 2015. We quickly met Justin and Dan after moving to Los Angeles. If you had told me back then our first record would come out Oct. 20th 2017, I would've been like damn that's a long time to wait.
Damaged: What is the recording and writing process between you guys?
Warbly Jets: We bounce back and forth between different roles. Most of the time Julien, Dan, or myself will being a pretty well formed idea to the table and the three of us will spend time shaping the arrangement of the song till it's feels right. I engineered and produced this first record thats coming out Oct. 20th. 2017. Everyone really got their hands dirty on this one though. We really enjoy the process of the making recordings, but at the end of the 2nd month waxing off some of the more ambitious songs off of our debut album out Oct. 20th 2017 world wide started to feel like banging my head against the wall. That's what makes it so worth it in the end.
Damaged: What is your take on our generation’s accessibility of Digital Audio Workstation?
Warbly Jets: Here's something I can get on about. I'm someone that loves gear and cool sounding analog thing but I'm not going to get into a tape/DAW rant here. I view theease of accessibility to DAWs as a purely positive thing for the future of music. The fact I can finish this interview and go right back to writing a song in GarageBand on my IPhone while riding in a van at 80mph through Texas blows my mind. If your a song writer or aspiring one you no longer need to book a $400 a day studio to start creating. There are so many cheap or free DAWs out there that can get you started learning the basics of recording. As for our debut album out to the entire world In 2017 Oct 20th we stuck to a combination of analog and protools.
Damaged: You’ve recently toured in China, the US and the UK. Can you tell us about the crowd’s reception between all three countries?
Warbly Jets: China was amazing. It was really great to go there to play the songs off of our debut self-titled record that's coming out October 20th.The crowd reception was amazing, it was really great to connect with a totally new set of faces. We're currently in the middle of our US tour which has been our best run to date. Some shows have been packed, 1 of them was basically empty but everyone in the room has seemed to connect well with the music. We're heading to Europe August 31st. Time will tell what the reception is across the pond, but I did just hear that the first night of our residency in London has sold out. Can't wait to melt some faces!
Damaged: How was your live performance at The Roxy Theatre July 27?
Warbly Jets: It's always good to play in our hometown and it was exciting to play in a room with so much musical history. This show was not one of our favorites for a number of reasons the main one being technical issues with the stage sound. It's difficult to perform properly live when your dealing with that kind of shit on stage. At the end of the day when you have a record coming out Oct. 20th 2017 you just gotta get out there and get the people amped for some good rock music.
Damaged: What are your expectations for your upcoming self-titled album due out in October 20?
Warbly Jets: For our Self-titled debut record to be out Oct. 20th 2017 world wide via Warbly Jets / Rebel Union Entertainment.
Damaged: what’s you Damage? (life event, good or challenging have you overcome that has led you to be the band you are today)
Warbly Jets: Bike accidents, overdrawn bank accounts, rehearsal spaces that become your bedroom when your homeless, YMCA gym memberships (for the shower), bar backing jobs, cold NY winters, hot LA summers and everything in between. Our debut self titled record is out Oct. 20thworld wide. Don't miss it.
