There For Tomorrow Interview

There For Tomorrow announce A Little Faster Deluxe Edition release and sidewave.

The name There For Tomorrow was never just a clever euphemism for the group of artists it embodies - it was a predetermined mission statement for their music.

For their first full-length album, 'A Little Faster', the foursome from Orlando are offering a clear-cut look into their purpose and direction. Starting from the very first note, it's a straightforward introspect that makes it easy to see why this band is one of music's fastest-growing and respected up-and-comers. "There For Tomorrow have emerged in a scene wrought with redundancy and made something truly unique and catchy." - Under The Gun

To coincide with the tour, There For Tomorrow is set to release a deluxe version of A Little Faster to include five bonus tracks taken off their self-produced remix EP, 'Re:Creations', for their Australian fans! Describing the sound as "a band oriented, innovative revision of our sound with incorporated use of Dubstep, House, & other Electro-based genres with Rock", expect the foursome to bring their soaring rock goodness to life when they hit our shores for the first time playing as part of Soundwave 2011!

There For Tomorrow's A Little Faster Deluxe Edition is available nationally in stores from February 18, 2011 via Hopeless Records / Shock Distribution.

Interview with There For Tomorrow

Question: What are you looking forward to most about the Soundwave Festival?

Christian Climer: I am most looking forward to being a new country for the first time, especially since we're playing some of the biggest gigs we've ever been apart of.

Question: Describe your music?

Christian Climer: I would call our music Rock with a strong Alternative influence. Everything we write is melodic and has an arena ambiance to it.

Question: How did it feel to hear your song played all over the airwaves?

Christian Climer: We're still a very young band and our time to take over the radio is ahead in our future! Whenever we hear about our music being on radio in certain states or other countries it's a surreal feeling.

Question: Did you have any pre-conceived ideas about the music industry?

Christian Climer: My pre-conceived ideas about the "music industry" was only that once you sign and start picking up speed in your career all these things just start getting done for you and your band. I didn't realise how hands on the band actually has to be in order become a successful running business! But, it's a good thing cause we love being hands on with everything we do.

Question: Do you write your own songs? What's your inspiration?

Christian Climer: We've writing all of our own music since 2003 when we were 13. We're not fans of the whole "co-writer" things. We love working with other producers and engineers but we never co-write our songs. It's what makes us a band.

My personal inspiration comes straight out of the love for music. I wouldn't be anywhere without the music I listen to... it keeps me sane and inspires me in all aspects of life.

Question: What music/artists do you listen to when you are not playing your own?

Christian Climer: I listen to a lot genres but some of my favorite bands of all time are U2, Foo Fighters, Muse, Kings Of Leon, Coldplay, Thrice, Mute Math and also really like more indie music like The Temper Trap and Miike Snow.

Question: What's next? Tour/Album/Single?

Christian Climer: There For Tomorrow has a lot plans over the next two years. We wanna tour the globe and support the hell out of our next record. We all feel it's the best music we've created as a band.

The album is slated to release late spring/early summer and we'll give all the details on the singles & release date when we know. It's still in the middle it's create stage.

Question: Was there a moment you contemplated throwing in the towel?

Christian Climer: Frustrations and exhaustion can easily get under you skin on tour and I've had moments of wanting give up and go home but I would regret making that decision more than anything. This band and my bandmates have been my brothers since 2003, I love them and I love what we do!

Question: Do you prefer performing live or recording?

Christian Climer: Recording studio or live stage.... both of those things are so special to me that I honestly can say which one I prefer but I will say that in the process of making our new record it felt like I was playing front of any audience while we were recording. All live vibes in our writing process!

Question: What/who was your inspiration to go into the music industry?

Christian Climer: My biggest influence on getting into the music industry first came being a music fan, I loved heavy music and I also loved punk. The energy and excitement surrounding it attracted me so much. Being from Orlando I started hearing about "boy bands" and "solo artists" getting signed when I was younger so I was always curious about the industry.

Question: What is the biggest challenge you have faced along the way to your musical success?

Christian Climer: Biggest challenge I feel like my band has faced so far in our careers is mis-conception and being at right place at the right time. But no worries, the planets will align.

Question: What's a typical day like?

Christian Climer: Typical day on tour: Wake up in the hotel and shower. Start traveling to the venue, get lunch on the way. Load in and soundcheck or just line check all our gear. Sometime work out a little bit if we're bored. I personally love to explore the cities we travel to and find new things that I love. We usually snack a little before we play and eat dinner afterwards. Best part about shows aside from playing is meeting the fans and hangs with our dedicated supporters!

Question: What has been your favorite part of becoming a music artist?

Christian Climer: Favorite part about becoming a musician is having the capability to travel the world and inspire people all around the globe. That's an epic feeling that gives me goosebumps every time.

Question: If you could collaborate with another artist, who would it be?

Christian Climer: It would be a dream to have someone like Bono or Chris Martin sing on one of our songs... they have very unique and inspiring voices. With the rock ambiance that we bring to the table I think their styles would blend for something I would love to hear. Kid Cudi would be a badass collaboration too.

Question: Do you have a website fans can visit?

Christian Climer:

Question: Can you tell us 5 things required for a happy healthy & enjoyable life?

Christian Climer: Five things required for a happy life... Music in my ears, falling in love of course, drum set/musical instruments, delicious food and the internet. haha

Question: What is the story behind the bands name?

Christian Climer: There For Tomorrow was a name our bassist Jay Enriquez thought of when we were searching for the perfect band name to represent our music in late 2003. We surprisingly stuck with it over the past 8 years! It stands for a hopeful aspect on life and that the future is always going to be there. We always aspire to create music that has a lasting quality; we want our songs to stand the test of time.
