Buckets N Joints have been busy lately preparing their 2nd album due for release next year and preparing for a tour to follow. The band is busy playing 100 shows a year. I was able to interview this great new band to talk the band and upcoming album.
Angel Alamo: How did the band come up with the name Buckets N Joints?
Buckets N Joints: The name was made up by Gal, our guitar player during a vacation he had in Thailand. People either think it’s childish or awesome, so no matter what, it makes them think about it, doesn’t it?
Angel Alamo: What can fans expect from the band on the 2nd album?
Buckets N Joints: It’s rocking and it’s fun. We feel like we really captured the essence of the band and how we play live, which can sometimes be difficult in a studio setting.
Angel Alamo: When will the band be releasing the album?
Buckets N Joints: The album will be released on March 2019. The first single “Disappear” is out already and another song will be released as the second single soon.
Angel Alamo: What are the band’s influences?
Buckets N Joints: We love alternative rock groups like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Audioslave, Guns N Roses, Foo Fighters and Muse and such. Every every member of the band likes different kind of aspects in music so it gives us an interesting color we think.
Angel Alamo: How was it playing in Germany and Russia?
Buckets N Joints: Amazing, people responded really well and rock out with us. In Russia we played in a Punk/Metal festival called “Dobrofest”. We were concerned that the people won’t understand what we’re doing there because we’re a more of a rock group than a punk group. But we were pleased to know that people actually really liked that we were different.
Angel Alamo: How does the band approach songwriting?
Buckets N Joints: We usually jam out and get a riff from improvizing and expand on that. Our singer Royi is good with writing lyrics on music that is already made so we usually write the music before everything. But there are no rules in this band, sometimes someone comes up with a song at home and we work on it together.
Angel Alamo: If the band could tour with anybody who would you go on the road with?
Buckets N Joints: I think you’d get a different answer from each member haha.. But I guess all of us with love to just tour with our biggest influences.
Angel Alamo: The band is going on a European tour who did that come about?
Buckets N Joints: We’re used to tour in Israel, but it’s a small country so we wanted to expand ourselves out of the border of Israel. Especially after seeing good reactions from Germany and Russia when we toured there. We’ll have a European tour when the album is released and we’re very excited about it.
Angel Alamo: Are there any other places that the band plans to tour in?
Buckets N Joints: We wish to play everywhere, but right now we work on playing in Europe.
Angel Alamo: How has the band been able to maintain the same line up?
Buckets N Joints: We’re just good friends I guess. We try to stay as honest as we can with each other and as time goes on, I think we get to know each other’s advantages and disadvantages and we work together with that.
