XS ROCK: Tell me about the latest band news? Any new projects coming out, live shows or announcements? 

We are as we speak, finishing up new material to record. We have quite a few songs we are preparing currently. We are also preparing to shoot a video for our second single “Broken Hearted Man” We hope to begin shooting in the next few weeks. (Neal)

XS ROCK: How long has the band been together?

We’ve been working as a band for about 3 1/2 years now, I love seeing our evolution as a band & fine tuning that PFSunday sound. (Tony)

XS ROCK: What was your main motivation for starting or being in a band?
Our main motivation was our love for music. Tony and I love to create. We hope people can see our passion from our lyrical content, to our musical content.(Neal)

XS ROCK: Which do you prefer? Writing new songs and recording or playing for a live audience?

Well, I’m gonna lean towards songwriting only because it’s new to me and I’m really enjoying the process of sitting down with Neal jamming something out & getting the butterfly going / who knows that something could turn out to be our next song which is sweet – I also love performing & we can’t wait until we finally get the chance too! (Tony)

XS ROCK: Do you have any outrageous tour stories from the road?

A)  We have not had a chance to tour yet. I remember being in Germany on tour with my previous band Takara, and going to meet and greats. I was surprised how long the lines were after shows to meet us(Neal)

XS ROCK: What’s the strangest request that you’ve ever received from one of your fans?

Hmm, the strangest question would have to be whether or not I would get a tattoo on my face – yes of course! (But) It would have to be an invisible one  (Tony)

XS ROCK: Were your parents supportive of your aspirations to play in a rock band?

My parents were supportive to a degree. I came from a school first family. My mother would tell me that she would like to me to go to college, and after that she would support me in any choice I made. (Neal)

XS ROCK: What are your favorite tracks to play live?

My personal Fav would have too be Broken Hearted Man – it’s close too me that’s why (Tony)

XS ROCK: Which band or artist inspired you to perform? Why?

It was the first concert I ever went to. I had already been playing guitar, but I had not really thought of what lies ahead other than just playing guitar. After that concert I remember laying in bed that night thinking about amazing that concert was. 
It left an impression on me that set my sights , and career trajectory on music as a career.(Neal)

XS ROCK: If you could design a dream tour for your band, who would be on the bill?

Ozzy, Shinedown, Breaking Benjamin, FFDP, Cold & David Hasselhoff (have you heard that Metal Track he did with CueStack) that songs sooo good! (Tony)

XS ROCK: What do you consider your greatest accomplishment so far?

The opportunity to release albums. Nothing else compares in my mind. (Neal)

XS ROCK: If you weren’t performing in a band what kind of career do you think you would have?

I’d Own my own motorcycle shop – wait I already do that…   astronaut?(Tony)

XS ROCK: What type of equipment do you use for live shows?

We will not be using anything usual for our shows. We hope to have a really nice light show, but other than that
I would say nothing else out of the norm.(Neal)

XS ROCK: What do you think of the current music scene?

Perspective is keen, I feel that throughout history you could always depend on Rock to feed the people with truth / that’s why we’re the Rebels we are! Good question!(Tony)

XS ROCK: For anyone that doesn’t know you, what would they be surprised to know about you?

I think someone would be surprised about the fact that way from music, I have a varied interest in so many thingsaway from music entirely. From the Ocean to cooking,, classic cars, and sports. (Neal)

XS ROCK: If someone had never heard you before, how would you describe your sound?

I’d say we lean towards the classic/melodic Rock side of things // think Audioslave, STP mixed with a little dash of Shinedown Pepper – But if you enjoy New Rock – Give us a taste, I know we won’t disappoint(Tony)

XS ROCK: Is there anything that you’d like to promote or say to your fans out there?

First off I’d like to say thank you for all your support. I really appreciate it. Please go to our band site Prey For Sunday
