On Better Terms Chats of Music and Plans Ahead

Indie alternative go getters On Better Terms have been around for sometime now, releasing some material including an all new full-length record. The band goes into chatter about their music the plans ahead.

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

One day back in 2013, Andrew showed Alex some lyrics that he had written, so Alex began writing music with our old bass player while Andrew was finishing his last year of college. We wrote 8 songs in that time, chose 5, and released our self-titled EP. We've been touring and playing shows ever since.

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

We played around with a few names, our first name was actually "capital." But we scratched it, and changed the name to On Better Terms a few weeks later. The name stuck because it seemed to match the lyrical theme of our songs that we were writing.

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 out of Dallas, TX. There's a ton of great bands in the DFW area, which really helps to push everyone to improve. Some of our favorites are My Apologies, Realities, Record Setter, Seafire, Trauma Ray.

4. How would you describe your style?

We like to think our music is a blend of heavy driving riffs, groovy rhythms, mixed with punk vocals, and spoken word.

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

2 EPs, a live record, 2 singles, a split EP, and a new full-length record.

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

We just released a new full-length record, so we'll continue to write but we'll focus on promoting our current release.

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

We have a few small runs planned for spring 2019, and we plan to do a big one in the fall.

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

The plan for the band is to continue to write music and tour until we can't do this anymore.

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

Spotify, iTunes, Bandcamp, YouTube, social media...you know where all of that stuff is.

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

We really want our first time listeners to remember that it made them think about something, enough to where they would want to listen again. I would like them to remember that it made them think about something, enough to where they would want to listen again.
