INTERVIEW: Noothgrush packed for a European tour


Noothgrush

Before their Saturday appearance at the 2012 Maryland Deathfest, Oakland, California’s Noothgrush will complete a short tour of Europe. Guitarist Russ Kent and drummer Chiyo Nukaga were kind enough to take a few minutes answer some questions before they left the country.

What recording material will you be focusing on for your set list?
RK – A wide range of songs from our discography.

Any new songs?
RK – No, we haven’t been writing, just preparing for upcoming shows.

What has been your most memorable show experience?
RK – There’s a lot… Tours with Seized and Corrupted were loaded with riotous times.

What are your future plans, such as recording or other projects?
RK – Right now we are just getting back into playing together and doing some of the amazing things we’ve been offered. We have some riffs and ideas that will (I hope) lead to new songs and ultimately a new record but we’re taking one step at a time here…. we’re all very busy “adults” now, you know.

Are you doing any other shows either before or after MDF? And if so, where and with whom?
CN – Right before MDF X, we will be on tour with Alderbaran in Europe. (See dates for the Procession to Extinction tour here.) We’re also playing on the Southern Lord’s Power of the Riff fest on June 21 in San Francisco and June 22 in Santa Cruz, Ca.

RK – We hope to be back on the East Coast later in the Summer for the Southern Lord Festivals but that isn’t in stone yet. We will also play the 305 Festival in Miami in July.

Will you have any special or unusual items for sale at MDF?
RK – Yes, in fact, we will! A split 5″ with Suppression that was supposed to be released years ago was Finally just pressed by Fuck Yoga and it comes with an actual puzzle. It is completely fucked up! We will also have some new t-shirt designs and vinyl of all the recently released and re-issued items.

Any special greetings for your fans?
RK – Yes! It has been a long time since we played on the East Coast. The interest and support we have gotten from those who love our music after all these years is beyond belief. We are very pleased to be playing again and we are working hard to make sure that you get exactly what you want to hear from us and delivered in an appropriate manner.

What has been your most memorable show experience?
RK – There’s a lot… Tours with Seized and Corrupted were loaded with riotous times.

What are your future plans, such as recording or other projects?
RK – Right now we are just getting back into playing together and doing some of the amazing things we’ve been offered. We have some riffs and ideas that will (I hope) lead to new songs and ultimately a new record but we’re taking one step at a time here … we’re all very busy “adults” now, you know.

And anything else you want to add?
See you all at MDF!!! We can’t fucking wait!
