Toad Interview

1. Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

We just released Endless Night and are already hard at work on the next record.  We're going to tour extensively in support of Endless Night later on this year, and will be playing songs from the record as well as material no one has heard. 

2.How would you describe the musical sound of the new album and how it differs from previous releases?

Our sound is what would happen if a 1970's American rock & roll band shared a practice space somewhere in the cosmos with a 1990's Scandinavian metal band.  One night both bands are at the practice space at the same time and they watch horror films together. Then both bands end up subconsciously influencing one another. As far as how this record compares to others, Endless Night is our most powerful output to date. It's the culmination of everything we've been involved with in the past.

3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the new release explores?

In short, the themes of Endless Night deal with darkness, the unknown, and the power held within. We've described this idea in more detail, and that can be found in our Earsplit press releases.

4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?

Take Over And Destroy is both the meaning and the inspiration behind the name.

5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?

Every show is different, so we learn new things and are fulfilled in new ways every time we play. It's impossible to pick a best or favorite performance.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new release?

Yes. The plan is to tour extensively. We have several things in the works.

7.Currently you are signed to Comfort Point Records, can you tell us a little bit more about this label?

"Comfort Point is very private. I own it all."

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your newer album by fans of underground music?

People feel the energy we put into the album, which will always be our goal.

9. Are there any other musical projects going on these days?

Certainly. Everyone has to stay busy.

10. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?

Only time will tell.

11.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

We're inspired by far too many bands and styles of music to get into specifics.  Lately we've been listening to a lot of Dio when we're all together.

12.Outside of music what are some of your interests?

Horror films.

13. Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?

Thanks for the interview, we'll see you soon.
