Interview with Red Method
Rabidfest 2019, 17/08/2019
By Sheri Bicheno
Hi again everyone, it’s Rick. Here is another Rabidfest interview that the awesome Sheri did for us and it is with Tech/Death/Progressive Metallers Red Method, a band that really hasn’t been around very long but is made up of ex-members of Meta-Statis and The Defiled so they know their chops. They were the Ever Metal band of the weekend at the Festival putting on a scintillating performance that got the whole venue moving like a swarm of angry bees and we cannot wait to see them again, oh and they were lovely as well!
So back to the interview, it’s safe to say that Sheri knows the guys pretty well so it’s really more of a chat and a laugh. Just think of yourself as an insect ambling passed and stumbling upon a brief moment of fun and madness!
Thanks to both the band and Sheri!
Sheri: HELLO GUYS!
Alex: WHAT’S UP!
Jeremy: We love yoooou Sheri!
Sheri: I love you!
Alex: We love you more actually.
Sheri: NOPE, That’s impossible.
Here I am, with Red Method! So you guys have been around – what not even 7 months!?
Jeremy: We unleashed this monstrosity.
Sheri: And you’ve already played most of the major UK festivals and you’ve gone bang!?
Alex: It’s gone really fast I guess we’ve learnt from our past mistakes and we’re doing it now the right way. It’s like a second chance in life.
Jeremy: It’s like having a girlfriend that you’ve messed up too many times and then you just know what to do with them, what drinks to buy them, what food to cook them..!
Sheri: Hahahaha so Red Method is like a constant date?
Alex: Taking the music industry on a constant date haha.
Quin: The way we see it, we’ve got nothing to lose, we are just going for it all in.
Sheri: This is the way to do this! And for people that don’t know about the dandy… let’s elaborate on the Chicken Dandy.
Alex: I’m glad you asked that hahaha.
Jeremy: Chicken Dandy was invented in 2006 on the road with Ted Maul. There we were all hanging out and a girl came out from the crowd and she looked…literally looked like a chicken. Then I came out and said “She looks like a Chicken Dandy!” and since then… everything revolves around Chicken Dandy; music, chicken, restaurants… we are in search of Chicken Dandy always.
Quin: I just had my Chicken Dandy from over the road.
Alex: Best Chicken in town.
Jeremy: Nobody knows really…what’s that song we been listening to?
Alex and Jeremy rap along to ‘Star 69’ lyrics by Fatboy Slim:
“They know what is what but they don’t know what is what, they just strut, what the fuck?”
Jeremy: We been following something but we don’t really know what it is.
Alex: Like the meaning of life! What’s chicken dandy, it’s the same question!
Sheri: No one knows.
Quin: We should maybe replace our lyrics with a piece of some Chicken Dandy.
Sheri: Beautiful! So what are you up to next that you can tell us?
Quin: Oh everyone’s looking at me! I guess we’re not really active on the live front until October. But we are working on a few more visuals that will be coming out, new things that we are gonna be shooting and filming and preparing for the release of the album. It’s more about building momentum after that point and then just see where we can go once we release the album.
Jeremy: Think we also have something being released in September. We arealso shooting something in September for the Album Launch. We’re going to Spain on Holiday to eat some Tapas haha. Go get some Press in Madrid. We already have festivals booked for next year and we’re just getting ready for some big things.
Alex: Our album is coming out, man!
Quin: Yeah, the album will be just in the run up to Christmas.
Sheri: Long awaited, we are looking forward to it!
Quin: It’s been an interesting time, that’s the way I look at it.
Alex: We have laughed a lot and we’ve had an amazing time so far
Jeremy: Yeah it’s been a hell of a journey. A hell of a journey!
Sheri: And this is the last date for this tour?
Jeremy: Yeah it’s the last one and it’s been brutal since Bloodstock!
Sheri: Which was absolutely amazing. That Sophie tent was absolutely rammed!
So lastly… give some of your best advice?
Quin: Don’t do it.
Alex: Get online, go to the Red Method bigcartel site and buy a few t-shirts and support the bands that you’re into. Plant the seeds so the weeds can grow mo’fo’s.
On 21st September 2019 at 10am Red Method will release their version of ‘Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana via Metal Hammer so make sure you tune in!
