Good afternoon everyone! We are 2 days away from celebrating one full year of the Whatcha Recording Willis Podcast and to anyone who has listened to the podcast or that has given me positive feed back thank you so very much! To help make things come full circle here is episode 20 featuring the guys in Flip The Switch!!! Side note in the interview I say “Episode 21” because I have a second round interview with Softspoken that I thought was going to be uploaded before this interview took place. How ever the episodes are flip flopped so sorry for the confusion! EP 21 of WRWpodcast will be Softspoken round two, uploading the 27th!
Flip The Switch is a 5 piece rock/heavy metal/metal-core band based out of Madison Indiana! For fans of, All That Remains, Miss May I, even For The Fallen Dreams. They fuse a lot of elements from early 2006 metal-core with the vocal arrangements and the gnarly breakdowns! But they also offer a modern heavy metal sound with tasty guitar licks, guitar solos and eargasmic drum fills!
It should be noted that certain members of the band can play multiple instruments which not only helps them be more creative during the writing process but it keeps their sound unique and fresh. If you see them live you will see this Chinese Fire Drill theatrics and in no way does this hinder their performance!
Flip The Switch is making tremendous progress for a band that has only been around for a year! They have shared the stage with some big named acts such as Miss May I, Earth Groans, Wage War, Varials, and Gideon. They are set to release their debut EP “Any Last Words” Sunday November 5th at Madison All Ages Show! So mark your calendars because that show is going to be off the chain!
In this episode you will hear a teaser of the new single “Shoot Me Dead”, we talk about where the name Flip The Switch comes from, how the band formed, their writing process, musical influences, their stance on current political issues, favorite songs off the EP, name dropping local bands and we asked some questions from the Swiggity Swooty Club!
