"Band Interview"

HIPPO PRESS ARTICLE

It seems Give Us This Day is doing everything right to try to make a splash, no, a tidal wave, in the local music scene. The band has been in the studio with band Leaving Eden’s Eric Gynan , recording Discipline and Punish, which is a five song EP.
All the members of the band are familiar to the music scene but the current incarnation of Give Us This Day allows them to breathe new life into their music and gives them the chance to start something fresh. Singer Jeremy Jenkins used to be in a band called Nok, and more recently sang for Deathgrip. The other members of the band; guitarist Luis Cruz, bassist Jared Sullivan, drummer Brice Russell, used to play in Madhadda.
Cruz was and remains, a fan of classical music. But the day Russell introduced him to Metallica, Cruz allowed for another form of music, heavy metal, to enter his life. “the minute I heard them I was hooked,” Cruz said.
The angry intensity of Give Us This Day’s music is hard hitting and passionate. And though the lyrics may come off a bit dark, Jenkins professes he doesn’t intend for it to always be that way.
“There are a lot of things that frustrate me,” Jenkins said. “I have lots of anger and try to put it into a positive flow.”
Jenkins has battled personal demons haunting him since childhood. He admits being a screw up at times, and has written about that. But he said he’s looking forward now with this new band.
The band has one focus to share, to never lose the art form of music. “ It’s like music here is a competition, it’s not an art,” Jenkins said. “ But you don’t wear home and away jerseys in music.”
Give Us This Day isn’t about to sell out, but at the same time they aren’t willing to sell themselves short either. They all have day jobs, but want to be able to get more out of music. They’re hoping to be sponsored by Jagermeister, which requires playing a least six to seven shows every month.
Give Us This Day’s CD release party for Discipline and Punish is at Reflections Lounge, 67 Parkhurst Rd, Chelmsford Ma. (978)-934-9325 on Friday, July 8th. Fear of Flying, Candy Striper Death Orgy and Synthetic Mindset will all perform as well.
