SUNRAY MAGAZINE Has the pleasure to interview the rock band from Orlando, Florida “Breed”
SUNRAY: How Did You Meet?
Breed: Matt (lead guitar), Jake (bass), and Bentley (rhythm guitar) met in High School.
Matt and Jake met Tito (drums) through mutual friends They met J (vocals) through a Craigslist ad
SUNRAY: Who Are Your Biggest Influences?
Breed: Metallica, Pantera, Alice In Chains, Avenged Sevenfold, and Guns N’ Roses.
SUNRAY: Why “Breed”?
Breed: It was quick, punchy, and easy to remember. We felt it represented our old school mentality and sound. It felt like a call back to artists like KISS and Slayer – 1 syllable name. More importantly it was something we could all live with
SUNRAY: What’s Your Songwriting Process?
Breed: It usually starts with a guitar riff, if not an entire guitar piece. The band will typically get together and jam while we develop the sound and overall vibe of the the song until it’s at the point that we can demo the track. From there we workshop the piece until it’s ready to be recorded.
SUNRAY: Who’s your ideal musician to collaborate with and why?
Breed: Although our individual answers may differ, as a band, someone timeless like an Ozzy or Dave Grohl would be rad!
SUNRAY: Last September 24th, 2022 Breed played at the huge rock Festival Louder Than Life Fest (produced by Danny Wimmer Presents) , how was that experience to you guys?
Breed: More than we could have ever asked for! LTT was an incredible experience. It was such an honor to be part of a lineup with some many of our heroes. The reception was amazing, and we can’t wait to do more festivals of that caliber. Giant shout out to the Space Zebra Show (specifically Bobby, Jake, and Josh Balz) for their support.
SUNRAY: If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?
SUNRAY: Please, talk to us about the new single “In Your Head”
Breed: In Your Head is streaming on all platforms now. We feel like it shows our versatility as musicians and song writers. We never want to release the same song twice and are always working to expand our sound and challenge ourselves. Go stream In Your Head!
SUNRAY: What’s next for Breed?
Breed: We have a lot of exciting things in the works that we’re looking forward to sharing with the world very soon… make sure to stay tuned to our social media for updates
SUNRAY: Please tell us where we can find you (social networks, Website…)
