    CARE FOR WHAT YOU WISH FOR – interview with THREATPOINT

    THREATPOINT

    RYL: Your last album “Care For What You Wish For” was released in October last year….tell us more about it… happy about the success obtained so far?

    THREATPOINT: It’s been very positive reaction, especially it’s pretty different than our debut. You have to stay fresh and not keep recording the same songs over n over. Growth is healthy for any band.

    Still trying to catch the attention of the right label for us. 

    RYL: Let’s talk about the song “Mocking Bird”, what it means for you?

    THREATPOINT: Mockingbird is a bird whom can’t sing its own tune it copies others.

    I heard one and wrote a song about how people are afraid to step out and be unique, so many just follow the fad whatever it may be at the time. 

    RYL: Is there a common meaning/theme between all your songs?

    THREATPOINT: not really. They all have a story based on reality.

    I try hard to put a twist on the lyrics yet shine a light in a very dark world. Some songs are about things that have impacted myself or the band.

    Sometimes lessons I’ve learned through life. And sometimes they are about other people or something I may have read about or seen a story on television. 

    RYL:  Do you remember the day you wrote “Divide & Conquer”?

    THREATPOINT: I remember Ron saying you can’t start a song with blast beats so it made me say to CJ, “start the song with blast beats” I like to go against the grain. laughs…

    RYL: how do you, usually, write the lyrics and music of your songs?

    THREATPOINT: I have stories or lyrics I write all the time. I write all the lyrics because I sing them so I want to feel them,yea know…

    Sometimes the mood directs the lyrics. Sometimes we start with a vocal melody. Sometimes it all starts with a riff or a beat. We all write the music end of it. Yes, old school sit , in a room and hash it out. 

    RYL: Which is your favorite rock song (lyrically speaking)?

    THREATPOINT: “The Age of Godlessness”

    RYL: Which is your dream not yet accomplished?

    THREATPOINT: To Tour Europe 

    RYL:  Which is the best verse you ever wrote?

    THREATPOINT: Maybe …”Calm before the Storm”

    RYL: Which is the last song you wrote (not published yet)?

    THREATPOINT: Last song…. Hmmm ,probably “Angels with Broken Wings”

    RYL: tell us your tour projects….

    THREATPOINT: We push as hard as we can, especially we all work full-time.

    That’s how this gets funded, No One is helping us. We leave in a few days for our Dirtbag Clothing West Coast Tour. Pretty excited. 

    RYL: What “When Karma Comes” lyrics mean to you?

    THREATPOINT: Reap what you Sow !
