Shout At The Robots Chatters On About Music, Themselves and More!

Mix-up rockers SHOUT AT THE ROBOTS got into details about their latest content, themselves, and the music they make and how it comes full circle with each release seen through. Find out all of the chatter below.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The band as it is now has been together since 2015, but we've all known each other since we were little kids. Obviously this means we all have a twisted weird bond and are like brothers in all the best and worst ways.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

People don't actually ask this that often for some reason which is great because it's the kind of name we can say “it means whatever you think it means” which is the worst kind of cop out answer. It could be some kind of commentary on the digitization of humanity but we're Netflix binging smart-phone havers just like you. So it means whatever you want it to mean.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We're based in the Southern Tier of upstate New York, between Binghamton and Owego. There is a really cool little punk/alternative/whatever scene in Binghamton that we've been thankfully semi-adopted into. You and your readers should definitely check out; (deep breath) Talk Hard, Cold Sweats, Walking Distance, If Madrid, Archemist, Floodlands, Yard Party, 2nd Suitor, Underground River, Tom Jolu, Ry, Natural Born Kissers. Tons more worth exploring as well.

4. How would you describe your style?

We have a lot in common with bands like The Replacements or Husker Du, Fugazi etc. People have compared us to all kinds of groups. We're kind of a heavy post-punk band with all kinds of little twists thrown in.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We self-released an album in December of 2017 called Fail Better which is available for whatever you feel like paying on Bandcamp as well as pretty much anywhere else online. I think in the future people can expect that we'll never put out the same thing twice or get boring, hopefully.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Absolutely. We hope to have the first of a few EP's out some time in March.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Ideally we would be playing 100+ shows a year but we're waaaaaay below that mark right now. We're still in the very early stages of planning our first tour. But the plan is to keep working at it and chipping away and pretending we know what we're doing as long as we can.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Clearly I should have read ahead before answering that last one. But really our plan is to just absorb as much as we can, much like the Blob, and grow bigger and bigger and take over the world.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can listen to everything we've done so far at which also has a link to our merch! We're pretty DIY but we also gotta make a little cash here and there, you know?

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

No one can really tell you what to do. Try not to be a jerk. We can all live like life is okay through music and it's alright to be weird and confused, no matter how old you are or where in life you are. Eat more tacos. We love you.
