Interview: Get to know All-In Moment

In poker, going “all-in” generally means putting your chips in the middle of the table and going for broke, no matter how foolish or brave it might seem. For Staten Island, NY rock/metal band All-In Moment, that couldn’t be more fitting. A hard rock newcomer that takes influences from multiple areas of the heavy rock spectrum, the band’s self-titled debut album (released late last year) has provided a solid foundation, and it’s clear the inspired fan response has also spurred the rising band to bigger things in the future.

We sat down with All-In Moment, through the wonderful technology of e-mail, to discuss their new album and a plethora of other topics too. Check out the read below and listen to their debut album as you go along, too!

Interview: Loose Talk (members of Anberlin, Acceptance) discuss the turbulence of new single “Iron Heel”

Not all side projects are created equal. Some undoubtedly end up as a brief respite during downtime between the main band’s albums, while others are bound to clearly explore new avenues that simply wouldn’t work with the musician’s primary act. St Pete, Florida’s Loose Talk is a little of both, if we’re being honest.

Containing members of Anberlin and Acceptance, one listen to their debut EP and/or new single “Iron Heel” and you’ll know why the band’s material surely won’t fit in with the two aforementioned bands. It’s closer to something The Black Keys might do, actually – gritty, blues-influenced rock music that leans toward the heavy and the thought-provoking. With a new EP dropping in January as well, we dropped by Bandit Coffee in St Pete with Christian M. and Deon of Loose Talk to discuss their new single “Iron Heel”, “opening up” for Anberlin, and what the band has to say about the turbulent political and social climate we live in now. Check out the full audio below!
