Hi Everyone. Welcome to our new EMQ’s interview with Fort Worth, Texas based Deathcore / Metalcore band Dispositions! Huge thanks to Ethan Massey for taking part!

What is your name, what do you play and can you tell us a little bit about the history of the band?

Dispositions started out in 2015 as an internet project by guitarist, Ethan Massey. Soon after finding band members, Dispositions entered the studio to record their debut EP “Dead Era” which released in January 2017.Dispositions then began playing local shows around the Dallas/Fort Worth area. They then hit the studio in late 2017 to record with producer, Cory Brunnemann in San Antonio, TX to record two singles. One being a Linkin Park cover called ‘QWERTY’ and the other called ‘Imitator’, which Dispositions shot a music video for. With the momentum of those singles Dispositions started playing shows and going on runs with bands such as DevilDriver, Jinjer, Upon a Burning Body, Bury Your Dead, Drowning Pool, Attila and MANY more! Adding a second guitarist in the mix in 2018, Dispositions hit the studio again with Cory to record two more songs later that year. One being the song ‘Pitiful’ and the other being ‘For You’.

How did you come up with your band name?

It’s from a Tool song.

What country are you from and what is the Metal/Rock scene like there?

We are from the US, specifically, Texas. The music scene here in Dallas/Fort Worth is extremely active with lots of local bands of all genres and a good amount of venues that allow big tours to come through.

What is your latest release? (Album, EP, Single or Video)

Our latest release is our song called ‘Pitiful’. We have a new song/video coming out.

If you could collaborate with a current band or musician who would it be?

We’d like to eventually work with Landon Tewers from The Plot in You.

If you could play any festival in the world, which would you choose and why?

Rock AM Ring would be pretty insane. Some of our favourite bands have played that one.

If you had one message for your fans, what would it be?


If you could bring one Metal/Rock star back from the dead, who would it be?

Dimebag Darrel or Chester Bennington

What do you enjoy the most about being a musician? And what do you hate?

The shows and travel are by far the most fun part. Being a local band all this mostly come out of our pockets to fund at the moment so that’s probably the part we hate.

If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?

I’d personally love for it to go back to the 80’s style and you were signed based off your talent and showmanship other than social media numbers and streams.

Name one of your all-time favourite albums?

“10,000 Days” by TOOL

What’s best? Vinyl, Cassettes, CD’s or Downloads?

Downloads are the most convenient but CD’s were the coolest in the early 2000’s when they’d actually come with cool behind the scene booklets about the album.

What’s the best gig that you have played to date?

There’s a few that come to mind but I think when we played with DevilDriver at Gas Monkey Live or playing to a totally sold out crowd with Upon a Burning Body in Dallas.

What’s next for the band?

Next for us is to release our song, ‘For You’ on 11/15 as well as playing a few shows with Bury Your Dead, Fit for an Autopsy and more.

What Social Media/Website links do you use to get your music out to people?

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, distrokid, Spotify, Apple Music, google play, etc.

Jaffa Cakes? Are they a cake or a biscuit?

Honestly have no idea what those are. Lol!

Thank you for your time. Is there anything else that you would like to add?
