I like hardcore/punk alot, and we all know how rare it is to find a good one these days...(seriously. what the hell is up with that Post-Hardcore bullshit?) There are a few bands that bring back that good old Punk sound back to the modern times, and Ninetly Six is one of them. I got to have a spiffy little interview with their guitarist Pat DeFrancisci. Read it up!
Metal in Ruins: Before I start this interview I just want to say thanks for doing this interview! Your band really kicks punk-ass ! How are you? How has reception from the recent release of "Dogs of the Day" been?Patrick: Hey man doing good, reception has been great we threw it up on our bandcamp for free once it was all done getting mixed and mastered and whatnot and alot of people have been downloading/streaming it through there, we've been more than happy with the response MIR: What is 96 currently up to?
P: I think the hardcore scene is flourishing now in regards to true hardcore the punk part of hardcore is coming back right now and we love it it's fast and intense again. The future seems bright for hardcore everyone always says things like music and style are cyclical and i feel like hardcore is coming back to where it used to be when it used to be about community
MIR: Speaking of the future, what plans do you guys have in store for the future of the band?
P: Like i was saying before we're just trying to book any show possible while we write for this new full length we're trying to put out by the spring
MIR: well, thanks for taking the time to do this quick interview. Is there anything you need to say before we go?
P: Support your local music scene hardcore, metal, punk whatever it is support it because if you don't all the good music is going to be washed out by the polished, mainstream bullshit radio and big labels try and shove down your throat, support your underground scene and make sure the people who really care about the music have the opportunities to keep doing just that care about the music...
If you want some rad music from these guys, visit their official bandcamp
Until next time guys! Thanks for reading!
