Listen to the new song from Rabid Flash Mob – Whiskey Tango
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
We started this band back in September of 2012 and have been spreading rapidly ever since. We make our own instrumental tunes and combine our random scattered influences to make a big mess of noise that in turn makes everybody have rabies and flash mob. No, it’s not just a clever name.
What do you have coming up? What are some of the new projects we can expect to see?
We just virusly released The Local Scene EP, our first debut studio album EP. We also plan to play as often as possible throughout the summer of 2013 so you can expect to see more of the Rabid Flash Mob.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
It’s a song about whiskey since we don’t have a singer you’ll have to make up your own lyrics about why you love or hate whiskey.
How does your music separate yourself from other artists and bands out there?
We have a hard time telling people what genre we are because we really don’t think about that before we write our tunes. We’re a really simple band with a simple plan and we think this is a good thing that sets us apart from other bands.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
As a new band we haven’t had many chances to prove ourselves, to date we’ve only played 3 live shows. I can imagine some venues are probably skeptical of a band called Rabid Flash Mob, but we hope to win them over through hard work and all that good stuff.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
One day we kicked a hacky sack on my roof during a break and after that we didn’t have a hacky sack. We got a new one on Amazon.com and fortunately we were able to bounce back.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Thinking they’re good enough because that’s when they stop getting better.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Love what you do.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
Social networks, local shows, and bumper stickers.
