Q

Are you going to Kumoricon 2019?

A

We'd love to but haven't spoken with the convention about it yet

Q

When you're writing a song, what do you write first? The lyrics or the music?


The Slants responded on 07/10/2018
A

It depends on the song. Our band usually likes to begin with music first (most of our songs fall into that category) but a couple of them begin as lyrics (such as "Sutures")

Q

How long did you all know each other before you became a group?
And when's the next time you'll be in Tennessee?

Hi,

In the current lineup, nobody knew each other before joining. I (Simon) established the band over 11 years ago and auditioned people to join; the only person I knew before they joined the band was our longtime guitarist, Johnny. I live in TN now though the band is still based in Portland; we'll probably be playing a show here sooner than later, I would guess about summer.

Q

Hi!

Do you have an agent? Who would I contact about an event inquiry?

Q

What are you guys' favorite songs that you have done? I already know Ken's is From the Heart...

A

It depends on the person; Joe loves playing "Endlessly Falling" and Simon's favorite might be "Sakura, Sakura"
