Wringer 13 - Sworn To Oath

Sworn to Oath is a totally bitchin' band out of the Midlands in the UK. I was introduced to the band last Spring when I reviewed their EP Leave You For Dead for This Is Not A Scene.  They've made two EP's and both are just smoking. They are currently working on a full length album and gigging their way across England. Definitely check them out!

Who are you, really, and what do you do?

          Tom Shaw - Bass/Vocals, Dave Leese - Guitar/ Vocals, Al Junior - Drums/Vocals and we do Sworn to Oath

What’s the best thing about being in your band?

          Creating music together that we're proud of and excites us.

How has being a touring musician changed you?

          It's not really changed any of us. We've been a "road band" since day one. We love being on stage together and being in a different place every night.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

          Inspiration can come from literally anywhere; from  just jamming together and bouncing ideas off one another from scratch or from life situations that we've each either experienced or read / heard about. There is no right or wrongs in our song writing process. The only rule we have is "let's just try it."

What is your favourite song and why?

          Each of us has such varying tastes in music. It would be impossible to single out just one song.

What does “music” mean to you?

          It's what we live for. Driving the band forward and playing music together is what comes first for all of us.

What do you think is your greatest achievement in the field of music?

          We haven't reached where we want to be yet. Although making it to the point we're at now is an achievement in itself. 

What is your greatest achievement outside of music?

          Tom once ate 23 slices of pizza at Pizza Hut. 

Describe your most unusual / rabid fan.

          There isn't anyone that sticks out as unusual or rabid, as of yet. We do have quite loyal fans that travel literally all over to see us and we appreciate each and every person that takes the time to come to any of our shows. We always try to speak to and meet as many people as we can and hang with them after the show if possible. It's important to keep a common ground with people that take  the time to come and see your band. We're a very social bunch of guys so we try not to have a divide between us and the audience. Our shows are just a big party and everyone is invited.

If you could invite any 3 people (living or dead) to a dinner party, who would they be and why?

          Dimebag Darrel, Phil Lynott, and Bon Scott purely because it wouldn't be a dinner party. It'd be the biggest drinking bender in history.

What three things are on your “bucket list”?

          Make a debut album that stands the test of time. Tour the USA. Play a main stage slot at Donington.

What are you most grateful for?

          Playing shows to people that support us

If you could reduce everything you are and everything you stand for to one word, what would it be?
