TRB: How did closure come together? Did you all know each other before the forming of the band, or was this how you met?

Mikey Well, Myself and Ross came from a previous band called “ Second Coming”. We then tried Mike out on the drums, but soon realized that he could actually sing, so we formed a new band. We had another drummer before, but Ross brought in Mason once he returned from School in New York.


TRB: Your music seems to be very dark. Do you have to mentally prepare before a show to get into that mindset?

Mikey:No, we’re always like that ha ha ha.
Mike: I do meditate just before show time in order to give the most energetic show I can deliver.


TRB: I love the movie "house of a thousand corpses". I was pleased to hear the song "mercy" was written after seeing the movie. I love how you used sound clips from the movie through out the song. What was the process for writing the song? Did you write the song and then add the clips as you saw fit? Or did you write the song around the clips?

Mike: I saw the movie and I knew instantly what I wanted to use, went home and had it put together in about ten minutes.


TRB: I've never seen Closure live, but I imagine you guys have some pretty intense energy on stage. How do you come down from that?

Mikey: Well, usually we’ll go back stage for a few and “take a smoke break”, then have a drink or two with some fans, cuz without them, we wouldn’t be there.


TRB: How do your musical influences now differ from the ones you had when you were younger?

Mikey: When we were younger, it was pretty much all hair bands, cuz that’s all there was. Now it’s more like Tool, Alice, Godsmack, things with a bit more feeling, talent and depth.


TRB: What made you choose music as a career? was there a specific moment? Or did you always know?

Mikey: one day I was walking outside at work, when someone jumped off the parking garage, it blew my mind, and I thought nothing lasts forever, and it was then I decided I wanted to be a musician.


TRB: Describe a Closure live show for those of us who haven't seen you live yet.

CLOSURE: It’s a non stop thrill ride from start to finish, we’ll rock your panties off and so much more. Don’t take our word for it, come out and see for yourselves.


TRB: What do you like the most about being a musician?

Mikey: Besides the loads of money…? Ha ha ha! But seriousely, I think it’s just the fact that we get to share our works of art and music with others from all over, we put our blood sweat and tears into our music, and we like that others appreciate our hard work.


TRB: what do you like the least?

CLOSURE: Being broke!


TRB: what advice do you have for aspiring musicians?

Mike: Quit!!!! Ha ha ha! Be smart, and never sell out.


TRB: what has been the greatest moment in your career so far?

CLOSURE: It has to defiantly be when we played Uncle Fester’s Final Night! The place usually holds maybe a couple hundred, but there was well over a thousand that night, the energy was insane, it was a kill show.


TRB: what are your hopes for the future of closure?

CLOSURE: To be touring world wide, and quit our day jobs!


TRB: any final words for your fans?

Mikey: Stay in shape!!!
Group: We love you all very much and appreciate all your support. Thank you, Keep Rockin!!!
