INTERVIEW WITH … LAS VEGAS ROCK BAND ‘LOUDER THAN WORDS’

This is Louder Than Words an Alternative Rock band based out of Las Vegas, Nevada.

The band consists of Dillon Potkay-Moore, Esteban Ruelas, Christian Hill, and Jonathan Buzzin. The band has just put out a new track titled “Stockholm”. I talked with the band about new music, songwriting, musical influences and so much more below…

THE RECLUSIVE BLOGGER: I always start off with a fun icebreaker question. So Pancakes or Waffles?

LOUDER THAN WORDS: Waffles… DUH!!

THE RECLUSIVE BLOGGER: Can we talk a bit about your song for “Stockholm” and how the track came to fruition?

LOUDER THAN WORDS: We originally played it lived before Dillon came around. After spencer left and we took a bit to think about what we wanted to do with our sound, we moved forward with the song. We ended up changing a lot of it and finally recorded it. We feel as if Stockholm fits us best right now. It’s one of our favorites and it’s a very emotional song for us.

TRB: What’s a typical recording process like for you as a band?

LOUDER THAN WORDS: We usually start with drums and scratch guitars, bass, final rhythm guitar, final lead guitar, and lastly vocals! Then off to mixing & mastering.

TRB: How do you feel social media has played a part in your growth as a band?

LOUDER THAN WORDS: It is 2019, social media plays a huge role in a band. It’s the main way to market yourself. We’ve definitely gained a following online and it’s easy for fans to keep up with what we do everyday.

TRB: Who are some of your dream tour mates and/or collaborations?

LOUDER THAN WORDS: Oh man! We can make a huge list for this one haha. Touring with All Time Low, Mayday Parade, State Champs, Foo Fighters, With Confidence, etc would be a dream!

TRB: What was the main inspiration behind your video for “Stockholm”? And how was that filming experience?

LOUDER THAN WORDS: We wanted the video to go hand in hand with the lyrics. Loving someone that doesn’t quite love you back and willing to run back to that person.

TRB: What artists or bands have you guys had “On Repeat” lately? What music have you guys been digging?

LOUDER THAN WORDS: Simple Creatures, Periphery, Polyphia, Boys of Fall, Yours Truly, State Champs, the list goes on and on!

TRB: And what’s next for you, as a band Louder Than Words?

LOUDER THAN WORDS: Right now we’re focusing on writing and recording new music!

TRB: Anything else you would like to add?

LOUDER THAN WORDS: Thank you for your time! Keep an eye out for new tunes sooner than later! 🙂
