For those who do not know you, can you state your name and your role in the band?
Hi I’m Joseph, I am the Vocalist
Describe another member of the band in 3 words.
Frankie = Smoking Drinking Pirate.
How did the name She Must Burn come about? Is there a certain meaning or story behind it?
Urmmm… In honesty it took us a while to decide on the band’s name. I guess at the time we wanted it on topic with witch trials.
How would you describe your music to people checking you out for the first time?
We are an amalgamation of various different genres and influences from classical to black metal. Just make of it what you will, we don’t want to label it anything.
We write about the trials and tribulations of everyday people, but we want you to gain your own personal connection, anything you hear or feel shouldn’t be our feelings. We want you to relate in whatever way you feel suitable for your self need.
On top of signing to Artery Recordings, you also recently released your self-titled EP She Must Burn. How would you sum up the journey over the last few months?
It’s been going really well. We have a great relationship with Artery also which makes it all very easy for us. Everything else is wicked… Loads of interviews taking place, lots of plans being made.
What should people expect when they listen to your EP for the first time and is there an underlying theme or message?
It’s all about emotion and past troubles… There is no theme as such just personal trials and tribulations both straight up and metaphoric.
How would you describe the overall meaning of each of the songs off of She Must Burn?
They are all relevant to each other, listen through and you’ll get a similar vibe from every track. Challenges that you either go through with someone or alone. Complete emotion. Some relating to coming out of the other side, some relating to a pain that’ll never leave.
Most popular question on the blog: If the band was stranded on a desert island and you had to eat one member of the band, who in the band would you eat? Also, what would be the bands overall strategy for survival?
Danny… He eats pretty well so he’d probably taste alright.
Just eat Danny we would last awhile.
On a more serious note: what about She Must Burn makes you different from other bands?
We’re from London, British old school attitude with a classical and black metal twist… I don’t think there’s anyone like us in general. We are unique.
