SANCTITY: Video Interview Available
Metal Injection, the video-on-demand site, recently had the chance to speak with Jared MacEachern (vocals, guitar) and Jeremy London (drums) of SANCTITY. The band discussed many topics, including being a young band being signed to Roadrunner, their forthcoming LP "Road to Bloodshed", their experiences on the road and Dave Mustaine.
When asked if the band had any words of advice to other up and coming bands on how they can get signed to a major label they said, "Practice... practice... practice... practice, and never stop. We just played show after show after show. Get your name out there. Let people see you, let people hear you, and you never know. The right person may be at the right show. The year before we got signed we played like 194 shows, as an unsigned band, which is like four or five shows a week. It was ridiculous for a while. We played as much as we could. I think that's really the key. And playing shows... there's only so much stage work you can do while at practice, but really playing out is what gels the bands, you get used to the crowd responses. Twenty people to two thousand people. Twenty people is more intimidating that two thousand people because you really have to impress those 20 people, and we got used to that."
