Acidic's Michael Gossard Rock's Out Hard and Heavy!

The hardest-working, hottest young rock band in Southern California ACIDIC is at it again! They're releasing their biggest, best, rockiest, rowdiest, and most critically-acclaimed album yet, "Copper Man". Frontman guitarist and lead vocals Michael Gossard spoke to us about this release, current touring schedule, and what they expect for this year alone.

1. What type of band are you?

Michael: We're a high energy rock band, straight out rock n' roll for us it's all about the stage and life just living in the moment.

2. Can I get a backstory on the band/ band biography?

Michael: I started the band in 2007, just wanting to play music. I put up flyers hearing a few responses from people, so we got some people together began playing some songs, did our first show, the rest is history and we're really happy with it.

3. How did you come up with the band's name?

Michael: That's a very interesting story we had gotten our name after playing our first show. We had thought the promoter would come up with the name so he had called us into the office and asked us what our band name was going to be, so I forgot what I was drinking at the time, but on the ingredients the name Acidic was there so it stuck.

4. What bands have influenced your band and its sound?

Michael: As terms as sound we sound a lot like Green Day, Jane's Addiction, Queens of the Stone Age, even some punk like The Ramones.

5. What lyrical theme do you guys use in your music? What message do you want to send?

Michael: Our lyrics is experiences we've dealt with and for us it's about us creating a future for ourselves. It's just all about self discovery for us really.

6. Why did you want to title the album Copper Man?

Michael: That's something that just happened, we were writing a song so after sometime we were fooling around with this idea and I ended up blurting it out  so it all happened by accident.

7. Can you tell me about the single and video for the song Copper Man?

Michael: That's another thing that happened by accident so we went for the infomercial style of video, doing something that nobody else has done before. We went all out for it and it was a really good decision we had made.

8. How would you describe the overall sound of the new album?

Michael: It's BIG and nothing like we've done before. It was done all live tracking everything live so it has that big rock band sound with that real live energy.

9. What are your expectations for the CD?

Michael: That's something I'm not sure about, I would like to keep playing and selling as many as we can. We're already writing for the next album so we just want this one to be something we can be proud of so we're seeing a good reaction from it. Playing shows non-stop are going on right now too.

10. What can the fans expect to see from you in the future?

Michael: Just more touring, more writing, we're just about moving forward making things better for ourselves.

11. Anything else you'd like to say or add?

Michael: For anyone who wants to check us out go to our Facebook page, Twitter page, listen to us on the radio and come see us live at the shows, we're really proud to be a part of something so big.
