Interview: Andrew Wilmot of Vital Noise

#1: Has music always been a big part of your life or did it come later? When was that moment for you?  

Music has always been a huge part of my life. The moment came when I was only 2 years old. My mom would always play different rock records when we were driving around in the car, and even back then, I knew that I wanted music to be a huge part of my life.  

#2: What are some of your favorite albums of all time?  

Appetite For Destruction by Guns ‘N Roses, Iowa by Slipknot, Sempiternal by Bring Me The Horizon, and Beauty Behind The Madness by The Weekend 

#3: What are the hardest and easiest parts of making music for you?  

Coming up with melodies and hooks is probably the easiest part of making music for me. The hardest part would probably be actually recording the music as it can be a very long process, but I still absolutely love it nonetheless.  

#4: When making music, what does the creative process look like for you and the band?  

Usually one of us will come up with a riff or some sort of hook, and then as a band will come together and figure out the music. Once that’s done, I will write the lyrics.  

#5: What is the biggest dream you have for the band?  

The ultimate dream I have would be to be able to play huge arenas like Madison Square Garden.  

#6: When did you first play music in front of an audience? What was that experience like?  

I first played music in front of an audience when I was like 5 years old. My parents got me in piano lessons and my teacher had a little recital for all of her students. I don’t remember much, but I do remember being incredibly nervous.  

#7: Out of every show you have played, what are some experiences that stick out the most to you?  

There have been a couple. About 3 years ago, we got to play at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles, which is the biggest venue we have played to date. The audience was super into it that night and it was just an incredible show. The other one that really stands out was about 2 years ago. We got to open up for Buckcherry, a band we have looked up to for a very long time at a private event for the NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA. That was an amazing show and one that I’ll remember for the rest of my life.  

#8: What is the dream tour or festival that you would love to be a part of?  

It would be incredible to play some of the huge European festivals, like Rock Am Ring or Download Festival.  

#9: For the rest of the year, what plans does the band have?  

We are currently working on some new music and have a series of shows coming up, which we are very excited about.
