Emotionally driven hardcore outfit Whenskiesaregray pour every ounce of their beings into the melodic & gritty sound that composes their EP What Can Not Be Reversed. The Baltimore trio boasts a dark and spacious vibe that is full of despair, taking the listener through the gray skies that the band is so aptly named after. You can check out Whenskiesaregray’s EP on Bandcamp and purchase it on 7” vinyl through Mayfly Records.

Please list all of your band members and their roles in the band.
What’s your hometown (or what are your hometowns)?
Baltimore, MD. We’ve all grown up close to/in the city. Eric grew up smack dab in between Baltimore and DC but resides in Baltimore City these days.
How did the band come together? How long has it been?
We met through friends. We knew of each other from different bands that were around. It just so happened that everyone’s band broke up around the same time. We got together and started writing for WSAG roughly two and a half years ago.
How have you grown since you started?
From a writing standpoint we have definitely matured. We’ve been recording our debut LP for Mayfly Records. It’s been such a learning process for us. Everything we’ve recorded to this point has been live. This record is being tracked. So it’s a whole different vibe and it forced us to harness the same intensity we had in our first two records with a more organized structure for laying down the songs. Not to mention the attention that’s paid to detail. That’s just one example of growth and learning for us. It seems to be happening every day.
What sets you apart from other bands?
We always try to bring a high intensity live performance. This may be wishful thinking, but I hope people can see that we are giving every ounce of energy, and heart in our live shows.
What’s the best part about being in your band?
The best part of being in this band is probably the best part of being in most bands that tour; hanging with your best friends 24/7 while traveling around the country playing music you genuinely love. Being a three piece also helps solidify that bond. Not to take away from four or five piece bands, but when it’s just three people with a common goal and a boatload of passion, things seem to come naturally. There’s no need to find something for everyone because everyone has their specific tasks be it things that need to be done to get ready for tour to writing music. We all have our place to keep things flowing.
I once had a drunk guy tell me I was too sexy to be shooting up at a party. He knocked the needle out of my hands and stepped on the pen, shattering the casing, telling me I should thank him by giving him my number and a kiss. It was my diabetes medicine.
