No Warning release new 7″
No Warning will release a new two song 7″ on vocalist Ben Cook’s label Bad Actors. All proceeds are going towards a former member’s difficult situation.
In an interview with Exclaim!, Cook explains that, while No Warning had never planned to come back, they’ve decided to record a few new songs. “An old member has found himself in a difficult and very serious situation and we want to help him and his family financially,” he says. “We are all still very tight with each other so getting together for this was very easy for us.”
“When we put our minds to this kind of music it’s going to sound like NW and no one else. It was interesting to get back in a room. Within 30 seconds, it was the same old shit. Me being an asshole yelling at everyone to do shit and them jamming Aerosmith and me telling them to shut the fuck up.”
There will be no reunion shows though: “I have no interest playing live. I don’t want dudes yelling in my face or jumping on me,” he explains. “I like creating music with these cats, and that’s that. We’ve been offered lots of money to get back together. Maybe it’s selfish of me to decline all these offers based on those reasons, but this band was a very special thing to us at one point. Getting back together for bills like everyone is doing now is cheap and I think it’s corny…. No disrespect to bands who choose to do so, just not my vibe.”Back to news overview
”I have no interest playing live. I don’t want dudes yelling in my face or jumping on me”
I think it’s a pretty normal feeling to have. The guy has been doing other music for longer than he was ever in that band or a hardcore band for that matter. Why would he do it again if he doesn’t feel like it?
Hope it’s going to sound like Suffer, Survive.
I wouldn’t count on it. Just put on a Linkin Park record.
“One Step Closer” is my jam!
Would be cool Pim, but I’ll settle for a good ‘NYHC’ track too!
