Them Bloody Kids are a London based three-piece Metal band. We emailed our list of questions to guitarist and vocalist Sebastian Moederle-Lumb prior to the release of their new single Freedom Of Peace (now available on various streaming services) for today's Inbox Interview!
Read what he has to say about their start, hearing their album for the first time and more...
So why the name Them Bloody Kids?
Well me and Darren were throwing around some names seeing which ones stuck and I guess them bloody kids just worked. We liked it because we were both mischievous throughout our childhood, always being the class clowns and getting in trouble so the band name seemed a good tribute to that.
If you had to explain your sound in just one sentence, what would it be?
TBK is a gateway band, using catchy hooks and addictive riffs that bring rock and metal back into the mainstream.
Who is in the band and what do you play?
Sebastian Moederle-Lumb - Guitar and vocals
Darren Maddox - Drums
Vein - Bass and bits
How did the band form?
Well Darren was my manager at the O2 Kentish Town Forum, he needed a band and I needed a drummer so we started jamming and found out we loved the same music, and he added exactly what I wanted to my songs without me having to say anything, he just knew. So I knew we had to keep writing together and we did. Then we were looking for a bassist after having written and recorded the first album, and Vein came forward and was interested. He slotted into our line up so easily, it was a match made in heaven and here we are now.
What have been your best moments as a musician so far?
Two moments really spring to mind. First was when we got all the masters back for the album and we could listen to it as the finished product. That was a great feeling, finally hearing the songs finished after months of writing and recording, it's just a great feeling knowing all your effort has been worth it. Secondly, the release of our first single was awesome. So much support from everyone and that support has translated into motivation for the next releases.
