EMPRA’s first live to air radio interview!

I’ve just finished doing our first live to air radio interview in Australia with 97.1FM 3MDR. It went really well and it turned out to be a lot more fun than I expected. I think in all it lasted about 30 mins. The phone dropped off a couple of times but Chris Heth (the DJ) was really cool about and kept calling me back. Still it was one of the most fun interviews I’ve done, we spoke about how EMPRA formed, the single, a bit about my past from the Boredphucks and The SUNS and our upcoming gigs. We also spoke about Motorhead and Soundwave. ‘The interview started at about 8:10am. I woke up at 7:45am.  It actually feels good to be up early. I think I’ll go shower now. I’m gonna try to get hold of a recording for any of you who might have missed it.
