Amazing interview with Howling Tongues…. discover their new album with us!
RYL: You just played at NASCAR, how was it? Excited before taking the stage?
HOWLING TONGUES: It was a cool experience to be able to play for all the NASCAR fans.
They seemed to really like rock’n’roll music and the show that we put on.
RYL: Your self-titled album has just been released and is a huge success, critically, but also, and especially, from the public. Lyrically speaking, what did you want to communicate with it?
HOWLING TONGUES: We just wanted it to be something that the listener could put on their record player and connect with lyrically and musically.
Their first impression is the most important and we feel a lot of people listen to what’s being said the first time they listen to a new band or album.
After that initial listen, they sorta hear the musical intricacies that we slip in here and there.
RYL: “Gotta Be a Man” is a great song and rapidly becoming a fan favorite. Please tell me what you remember about writing it.
