Interview With That Which Ate The Moon By Matt Bladen
MoM: Introduce yourselves/remind everyone who you guys are. Band name,members, style etc?
That Which Ate The Moon: We are That Which Ate The Moon. A four-piece, Newport based stoner metal band. We have Alex on vocals and bass, Teagan and Lewis on guitars and Ben on the drums.
MoM: How have the last year(s) been for the band? What have you been up too?
That Which Ate The Moon: Since the start of the pandemic we have put mostly everything on hold to keep ourselves and our fans safe. We’ve only played a handful of shows when we felt it was right to return to gigging. We’ve been focusing all of our energy on recording the rest of our album and writing and putting together demos for what comes after our first album.
MoM: What experience have you had with Bloodstock/M2TM in the past?
That Which Ate The Moon: Our last experience with M2TM was last year's competition. We recorded one of our newer songs from Pirate Studios in Cardiff and our feedback was pretty good. Even though we didn’t make it through to Bloodstock we were really happy with how everything went for us.
MoM: How are you feeling entering the M2TM format back as it should be? Playing in front of a crowd again?
That Which Ate The Moon: We're feeling really good about it. We love playing to a crowd as we bounce off the energy in the room. We’re always conscious of putting on a well rehearsed and planned out show. We take a lot of pride in it.
MoM: What would it mean to you to play Bloodstock?
That Which Ate The Moon: It would mean the world to us to finally be able to play our songs on a big stage at a festival. That’s been the dream for us since the beginning.
MoM: Tell us two truths and one lie about the band?
That Which Ate The Moon:
1. We played in front of Benji from Skindred at one of our shows.
2. Ben is a grade 8 tuba player.
3. Teagan started playing the cornet before he started learning the guitar.
MoM: Finally give us a four word rundown of what to expect?
