“I had been want­ing to go see UNDERØATH for a long time. All the boys had al­ready seen them, and it was the Bot­tom­leys [Jack and Will, gui­tar and bass, re­spec­tively] who in­vited me along. I was so com­pletely fo­cused on see­ing them – they were the rea­son why I was there, though there were loads of bands play­ing that day, and some of the oth­ers were cool.

“Ver­sae­merge were on the bill and I thought they were sick! The singer [Sierra Kuster­beck] had all of th­ese feath­ers and this weird fox­tail thing she was wear­ing, and I re­mem­ber think­ing,‘well this is kind of cool!’

“When I saw UNDERØATH all I could think was,‘there is no band like this in the world at the mo­ment!’ That band cap­ti­vated me beyond any­thing else I’d ever ex­pe­ri­enced or imag­ined. I can’t pick out a sin­gle mo­ment, be­cause ev­ery one of them was as amaz­ing as the last. All of the songs were just in­cred­i­ble, and they were so real. There was no gim­mick, there was no sell­ing out; they came out on­stage and poured their souls out the en­tire time they were up there, in the most beau­ti­ful way. They were giv­ing it their all and had noth­ing to hide, which was so in­spir­ing – and I moshed! I said my prayers be­fore I went in and came out the other side with no in­juries!”
