Chris from the Nashville based rock band FOUST was interviewed by The Bucket List.
Here is an excerpt from the interview:
Nashville-based rock band FOUST, kings of the crunchy guitar, have started tracking an acoustic version of their debut EP, Revival, which is due out before the end of the year.
‘The songs will have a different feel to them,’ said frontman Chris Foust. ‘So ‘The Fountain’ has a 3/4 meter feel, I’ll sing it more as a jazz tune. We’ve also written 12 tracks for a full-length album, which we started tracking last week. The question is whether we release a full-length album or a track every 3-4 weeks. Hip hop artists often release a track every 2 weeks, it keeps people engaged.’
FOUST was formed last year out of the ashes of Blackwater James and comprises lead singer, guitarist and primary songwriter, Foust, his longtime confidant and drummer, Todd Schlosser (Blackwater James, Majestjc Swayzee) and bassist/producer Chris Utley. The surname Foust, which has Germanic roots, is similar to the German word ‘Faust’, or ‘fist’, which he has taken for the band’s logo: ‘It plays perfectly to the rock ‘n’ roll attitude, the fist in the air, make some noise,’ he laughed.
‘I write music in the moment, based on how I feel’
In September, they released their debut EP, Revival, which comprises five tracks, including ‘The Ocean’ and ‘The Fountain’. Foust said he starts all songs with a clean slate, without a preconceived idea as to how they should sound. ‘I step back from that sort of mindset,’ he said. ‘I write music in the moment, based on how I feel. We recorded those tracks live and I recorded the vocals in my car on this headset.’
