RYL: Tell us everything about your last album “Lost and Found”, what is its main achievement lyrically speaking?
FLY AWAY HERO: The most important thing to me as I was writing the album was that I wanted it to be honest and relatable, and I think that was accomplished pretty well!
RYL: Among the new songs released is “Hercules” , what inspired it?
FLY AWAY HERO: I had just gotten out of a big slump in my life, and I guess the main inspiration for Hercules was just the crawl out of that low point of my life.
RYL: Is there something that ties all the songs of the new album? A common theme?
FLY AWAY HERO: the whole record was written about a breakup I went through a few years ago, so that’s the underlying theme.
RYL: Who produces your music ?
FLY AWAY HERO: Matt Novesky of Blue October is our producer. Super cool cat.
RYL: how do you, usually, write the lyrics of your songs?
FLY AWAY HERO: I write all of the lyrics and most if the music, and then take it to the band. Sometimes songs take a week, but sometimes they can take two years!
RYL: Which is the best verse you ever wrote?
FLY AWAY HERO: it’s kinda hard to say that because of how subjective lyrics are, but my favorite verse that we have is the first verse in Storm on the Sea.
RYL: Which is your favorite song of the new album?
FLY AWAY HERO: My favorite song is Storm on the Sea
RYL: What this song means for you?
FLY AWAY HERO: I wrote it about how hypocritical relationships can be, and how when we get caught up in an unhealthy relationship, we all tend to lie a bit.
RYL: You will be touring soon….! What do you expect from it?
FLY AWAY HERO: We hope to see as many of our friends and family as we can over this summer.
RYL:How did you first get involved with music?
