This is an interview with the band Provenance.
They are a Mancunian Quartet established in 2016. Their sound could be described as Alternative Hard Rock blended with pop melodies and electronic elements. Since their inception they have been thoroughly working on a debut E.P. entitled “overture”.
Overture will be released on 20th September 2017 through iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon music. It will be available for streaming on YouTube, Spotify, and Soundcloud.
- Tell us about your band and how it all got started?
Well in a way we’ve been a band for years, all four of us have been playing music together in different bands for as long as we can remember.
Though Provenance was really formed in 2016 when we first hit the studio. We had a bunch of demo’s we loved and those became the Overture E.P.
So this all really started because we we’re best friends that wrote music we thought people needed to hear.
- What bands are you influenced by and why?
We’re influenced by everything really, I don’t think there’s ever one or two things you can put your finger on. We listen to everything from ariana grande to Crystal Lake. But for our E.P. we listened to a lot of Blink 182 for the drum sound and production, lots of the synths you hear in our songs are inspired by Enter Shikari and Pvris. We listened to lots of Chunk! no, captain Chunk! and Volumes for Guitar tone inspiration. All kinds of stuff really.
- What is your favorite venue for live shows that you have played or attended shows at?
There’s a local venue in Manchester Centre called Gorilla that’s this perfectly sized venue with this crazy backline for the stage, it looks like the inside of a nuclear reactor, just a wall of knobs and buttons that you wouldn’t dare touch, fear that you might accidentally create a blackhole.There’s also The Roadhouse which unfortunately has closed down now but it was one the best venue’s cause it was small enough that unsigned bands could play there, and in other bands we’ve had shows there. But it has a sweet sound system and really nice stage, hopefully someone will Bring it back so we can play there.
- Where do you see the future of metalcore music is going in 2017 and beyond?
I think metalcore itself is inspiring tonnes of bands, I think all genres they change and become something completely different, and Metalcore is no different. Lots of bands are blending other genres with metal and hardcore just through creativity. For instance Issues’ latest album has Jazz guitar chords, and obviously RnB and Hip Hop. I don’t think it’s going anywhere anytime soon, I think it’s just becoming a different animal, and it’s exciting to see what happens.
- Who are your favorite bands to play with live?
Unfortunately we’ve only been playing shows as “Provenance” for a short time, but we got a chance to play with an awesome band from Glasgow at our first called “Divides”. Super nice group of people and they smashed it, people should definitely check them out.
