1.Play fast or die! Hey Dylan,greetings from Perú! how are you mate? hows going the things in Fissure?
Howdy! Things are going very well for us at the moment. We're currently working on finishing our first 11 track LP and plan on recording another EP or split before the end of the year so just doing our best on staying busy behind-the-scenes.
Brendan and I had already been playing together for about a year and both of us moved to Orange County in late 2011/early 2012 so at that point, we figured we should form a full band and a Craigslist ad came from that, two people (guitarist and vocalist) contacted us with interest of getting together so we jammed once and that was the first Fissure practice. A year after that first session, Brendan and I parted ways from those two whom went on to do their own project and that's how Leo and Oscar came into the picture. We played a few shows with their two previous bands and thought they'd be a great fit for us and sure enough, it was. That was in March 2013 and that is the Fissure lineup you see today.
3.How many releases have Fissure till moment?
Five at the moment.
*Self-Titled EP, 2013
*Salvación/Destrucción tape, 2014
*Split w/Gets Worse, 2014
*Split w/Final Draft, 2014
*Split w/SHACKLΣS, 2015
We all draw influence from tons of bands and outside sources but I can't really pinpoint a single band that we can all universally agree on having an influence from because we all have such eclectic tastes. Love's Truck Stops are a pretty big influence on all of us though, that much we can agree on. Best coffee on the interstate!
5.Some member from Fissure have another proyect paralell?
Yes, that's true. Leo is currently in another band at the moment but as for the rest of us, we're all just chained down to Fissure.
6.Dylan explaim some more about the grindcore/powerviolence scene from your city and recommendsome bands.
There's almost always an influx of new bands coming out. Blink and you might miss their set. Go to any local powerviolence/grindcore show and you'll stumble across a new band whose tape you'll be buying shortly after. That's the beauty to being in a big metropolitan area like LA and OC.
Depraved are killing it right now. That's a band that seriously can't be slept on.
And even 20+ years later, Despise You are consistently one of the best powerviolence bands out here in Southern California.
7.Fissure know the grindcore/powerviolence scene from Southamerica?
We don't (yet) but we would love to! That's on our list of plans in the next few years; tour South America so if anyone down there reads this and can help us set up a show, feel free to contact us! We'd love to play your living room, venue, bathroom etc.
8.How and where the noisy maniacs can find the merch from Fissure?
At the moment, our online store isn't fully up and running so in the meantime you can message the band Facebook page directly https://www.facebook.com/FISSUREHCPV/ to order a shirt, record etc.
9.Morbid future plans?
Finish this LP, record another EP, maybe do a weekend tour or two before the end of the year and get back to touring internationally next year. We've got some stuff in our minds that we're gonna aim for in the next year so fingers and toes crossed that we can make them happen!
10.Dylan thanks for your time in this interview,last words bro!
Thank you to anyone and everyone who continues to support our music and this band, that's seriously one of the coolest things in the world and we don't have enough thanks to give. And thank you for reaching out to us to be a part of the zine, we're super stoked to be included in an international project like this!
