Stringer will be releasing their new album, “My Bad,” on June 29. The title of the album could be the title of my biography. I feel like this band gets into shenanigans on and off stage.
However, I feel like they take their music fairly seriously. Or they are just pretty talented and can get away with stuff.
I listened to a top-secret copy of the album. Some of the song titles are “Dead Horse,” “Ghosts,” and “Miss Slovenia.”
I wasn’t keeping my fingers crossed that the album didn’t suck. Apparently, crossing your fingers works because the album doesn’t suck.
“Halving” sounds so sweet but really the lyrics are a little twisted. My favorite songs are “Ghosts” and “Swimming.”
Some of Stringer’s songs remind me of Weezer but darker, punk rock and with more acoustic guitar. Stringer would be pulling pranks on Weezer 24/7. Now that would be something that I would watch constantly on YouTube. Stringer, can we make that happen?
Stringer…These guys . . . They are hooligans if I ever saw any – sort of like my neighbor’s teenage grandsons who smoke on the roof of her house and try to play the guitar.
Well, Stringer is several levels above those teenage boys. They’re playing on Warped Tour this year so they have that going for them. Stringer is going to have a new album out on July 13. So in exactly 1 month, we can all hear the album for ourselves.
They answered my questions in a timely fashion so I didn’t have to make them pick out a switch off of the tree like some old school grannies used to do. Lucky for them. Also, lucky for you guys. You can read the interview below.
What is Post-Dickwave exactly? It reminds me of my ex for some reason . . .
If your band is described as Post-Dickwave your probably a fan of the short-lived and gloriously stupid rock n roll outfit, Red Dwarf. You’re also probably having less fun than you used to, just like your ex.
Why do you think people keep their stuff longer than they should? (i.e. exes, cars, stacks of magazines)
Probably because things are important and they want these things when they enter that land of wind and shadows from whose born no traveler returns. Frankly, I think everyone should vehemently hold on to every material possession they’ve ever had, for a man is judged only by the sheer amount of stuff they have and nothing else.
How many tattoos do you guys have collectively?
We got more ink than the New York Times.
Would you ever get matching tattoos?
We don’t want to have anything to do with each other.
Have you ever seen a ghost?
No, but I have seen my father naked.
I heard that someone in Stringer broke their toe. How did that happen?
More lies from the crooked MSN, fake news folks, fake news.
When you’re on stage, how much do you pay attention to the crowd?
Hey, they should be paying attention to us, who’s show is this anyway?
If your mom is waving at you from the crowd, will you wave or pretend you don’t know her?
My mom hates my Stringer and has no arms, it must be just one of our many older fans.
What do you want people to know about Stringer?
That we didn’t break the bass in Jed’s practice room.
