Video: Alex & Jonathan Acoustic in San Diego

Before Everything Everything embarked on their US tour with The Joy Formidable in March, they stopped in San Diego and recorded an acoustic session and interview for local DJ Tim Pyle.  They played the usual favourites Regret and Distant Past, plus To The Blade (I think this is the first time we’ve heard an acoustic version of the loud album opener!)

Interview: Jonathan in Chicago

Christopher Friedman from Artist Direct Interviews chatted to Jonathan before Everything Everything’s Chicago gig earlier this month.  It’s worth a read – many of the questions are ones we’ve seen answered before but it was interesting to see Jonathan talking about his time in the US and also a little bit more about album 4!  Here’s an excerpt:

CF: The first album; has it had any influence on how you went about 2015’s Get to Heaven?

JH: Yeah, of course. It did. We came out of the box doing lots of kind of weird stuff. And then we kind of reigned it in on the second album and then we kind of mixed it for the third album. The third album was kind of putting up everything we learned back together. And thinking we don’t want to lose this, we don’t want to lose this, and we have to do this. So yeah, everything you do kind of do in the past influences what you do next. Every album is a reaction to the last album in some way. Maybe we will do like a Country album next.

I’m sure he’s joking about EE doing a country album…he’d better be!!!  Read the whole interview HERE

News: US Interview and Video

A couple of media things appeared yesterday: first was an interview for GrooveVolt with Jeremy and Michael before their New York City gig last week.  It was mostly about the writing of Get To Heaven, which of course is still a new release in the US.  Here’s a nice quote about Jonathan’s lyric writing!

“It’s Jon who writes the lyrics, but we usually make the titles, having written lyrics since he was 10, so he’s very well versed. He’s very conscious of cliche, and wanting to avoid it. He’s not particularly literary or well read, and doesn’t like fiction, but he is very useful. Jon is just quite analytical in general, but we don’t think he has formally thought about or studied it.”

Secondly we have a video interview and acoustic performance of Distant Past, recorded on a LA rooftop right at the start of the US tour for Balcony TV:

News: Everything Everything to return to the USA in August!

The band announced after their gig in New York City last night that they would be returning to the city in August.  This will be a headline gig at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on 4th August and tickets go on sale next Friday (22nd April).  At the moment, the band don’t have anything much on their schedule for August so I’d be surprised if they travel all that way for one gig…could there be a US headline tour? Watch this space!

Interview: Everything Everything at SXSW

A new interview with the band was published today on the music blog “live4ever”, although it actually happened the other week when the band were at SXSW.  It’s well worth a read and has a bit of a different feel to some of their other recent interviews. In it they (the band members responding to the questions aren’t identified) talk about playing in the USA, the state of the music industry and the challenges of reaching new audiences. Here’s an excerpt:

“The Internet is a technological development that’s affected everything. It’s levelled the playing field, which is a good thing, but also means that you have to try and be seen by more people because it’s cheaper to make records. Cheaper to market them on social media, which is free. We don’t make any money at all from sales. Not even in the UK where we sell pretty well. It just doesn’t happen to any artists anymore, they make money in other ways.”

Interview: Jeremy from Everything Everything talks to Skiddle.com

A new interview with Jeremy appeared today on skiddle.com.  He chats about the band going to Russia a few weeks ago, their upcoming US tour with The Joy Formidable, Get To Heaven, album 4 and more.

On playing in Russia:

“It’s going to open up I think and become more receptive to western artists; I think people here have political reservations about going there and that did occur to us, but ultimately it was the same when we went to China and you’re just playing to music fans.

You know we wouldn’t do it if were booked to go to the Kremlin and play a corporate but that’s not what it’s about. We’re not supporting any regime by playing anywhere. “
