Our Time Is Now are a Pop Punk/Post-Hardcore band from Norwich, who recently did an interview for us.

How would you describe your music?

We like to think our music is a mixture of the catchy nature of bands such as “Fall out boy” and “State champs” but with more of a technical and melodic style of “Creeper” or “Chunk! No, Captain chunk”.

Tell us about how the history of the band?

We formed in 2013 with a largely different line up. Members came and went over the years but the current line up came about in 2016 and we feel we are now firing on all cylinders and everyone is on the same page.

What are you influences/ musical heroes?

Stuart – A day to remember are one of my all time bands! They manage to balance the heavy side with the catchy elements and come up with a sound which is something that we as a band look up to.
Sam – Sum 41 are one of the bigger ones for me. Their music is some of the first rock i listened to and still listen to regularly.
Nick – I listened to You me at six loads when i started to learn the bass. They are doing great things for the british rock scene.
Ryan – I grew up listening to Iron maiden and they are still one of my favorite bands and were one the first heavy bands that i ever listened to after getting hold of my brother’s copy of aces high when i was about 6.

What inspires you?

When we write music most of the time it is based on certain experiences we have had or things we are going through at times in our lives. We feel it keeps the music genuine and fans can see this and will connect with the music more.

Do you write on the road? or do you prefer to write in the studio?

Songs will usually get written at home but we try not to set limits with it. Songs have came about through jams in the studio, between shows or setting time aside to write.

What would be your dream tour to be a part of?

A dream tour for us would to be a part of an All time low tour. They are at the peak of their popularity and have their live show down tight, also their fan base is a demographic we feel would suit our style even though at times we are much heavier than they can be.

What are you current thoughts on the music industry?

The music industry is incredibly tough, to get noticed is hard enough but to actually succeed to the point where it become your job can seem like a pipe dream. As a band you just need to make sure you are doing everything to the best of your ability and as professional as possible to increase your chances of being noticed by the right people for you.

What is the funniest/weirdest experience you have had on tour?

We had a pretty wild night after playing O2 academy in Birmingham. Everyone was pumped after the show so we all went back to the hotel and proceeded to drink ourselves into oblivion. It ended up with members being sick for hours, people passed out all over the place and plenty of other x-rated things you probably can’t print..
What are your future plans?

We are now working with some decent people behind the scenes who are helping us reach the next level. Over the coming year we are hoping to break onto the festival circuit and play more shows where we can increase our outreach.
