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 !
