SE­BAS­TIAN DANZIG, 25, GUI­TAR

Kerrang! (UK) - - HOTTEST BANDS OF 2018 -

“I was re­ally shit at school. My grades were aw­ful, but I was good in other re­gards. I was a na­tional chess cham­pion as a kid, for ex­am­ple. So, strat­egy games like that I was re­ally good at, and sports, too, just not when it came to any­thing aca­demic – I can’t read for shit! The only thing I got from ed­u­ca­tion was the fact that we went to prep school, so we were eight-year-old kids dress­ing in suits and ties, and that in­formed how we dress now.we don’t give a shit about what peo­ple say with re­gards to what we wear, be­cause we’ve spent our whole lives this way. Our child­hood has had a huge in­flu­ence on our band, and the fact that we don’t give a fuck about peo­ple say­ing we’re cool or not. We just do what we be­lieve is cool for us.

“The big brother role has been a part of my life ever since I was 15, when our par­ents sep­a­rated; from that point, I took on the role of the father fig­ure and the du­ties that go with that.this was around the time we all left school and de­cided what we wanted to do with our lives. On the road, I’d take care of all band du­ties, such as book­ing tours and sort­ing mer­chan­dise, mak­ing sure everything was in or­der.the re­spon­si­bil­ity was thrown upon me – it wasn’t like I wanted to do it, but some­one had to.

“I was ac­tu­ally ready to go off and play col­lege hockey at one point, be­fore I got in­jured. But now, I don’t care so much about sports, un­less it’s the Olympics. It was in­ter­est­ing to go through a phase in my life where I thought that was what I wanted to do, and then re­alise that, ac­tu­ally, mu­sic was what I wanted. Re­cently, I’ve got back into hockey be­cause Las Ve­gas now has a pro­fes­sional hockey team. I was born in Toronto and their hockey team is re­ally ter­ri­ble, so I de­cided to sup­port theve­gas team!”
