Interview with Egypt Central frontman John Falls
By: Andrew Bilach
This show was a lot of fun. I have to admit, I’m not a fan of midday interviews. They’re typically formulaic and boring. This was an exception.
Egypt Central is now starting to make waves. “White Rabbit” has been killing it on radio and the band’s live performances are receiving overwhelmingly positive reviews. Heck, they blew Cold off the stage for an entire tour.
This is about John Falls, but let me stray for a second. We talked about it during the show, but I’ll address it again here. John had nothing but positive things to say about how Cold treated Egypt Central on tour. My gripe is with Scooter Ward. It’s not 1999. You don’t deserve that bus you’re on. Tenth Street Entertainment is beyond foolish to think your destroyed voice, coated with huge helpings of auto-tune and synchronized with a backing track, will sell tickets in 2011. I also saw them on a headlining tour with Nonpoint as direct support. 2/3 of the audience left after Cold’s third song throughout the run. Scooter Ward will have to swallow the bitter pill of failure after Superfiction tanks. He finally will have treated enough fans like crap to the point no one cares.
That was some accurate rant, huh? I mean, come on. They played to 100 people on a Friday night in Albany. Think about it. Back to John. We talked a lot about the success of “White Rabbit” as well as their back story in getting signed and getting records released. Darius also felt the need to comment on their bass player’s body. Now, if I said anything remotely close to that, I’d get assaulted in the comments section. So please, listen to the audio, and abuse Darius. It’s not fair that I always take all the heat.
You don’t have to be an Egypt Central fan to enjoy this show. If you’re not, I guarantee by the time you’re done listening, you’ll feel compelled to give them a shot. A big Thank You to John Falls for allowing us to deviate from the script and have a good time.
I’m off to shop for sunglasses.
