Progressive Texas rockers ANOVA SKYWAY are taking a surprising route in their latest release.
Composed of Michael Marksberry, Mike Palacios, Cory Miles, Andrew Alvarez and Garret West, ANOVA SKYWAY released play through of their new single, “Diet of Worms”
BASSIST PLAY THROUGH VIDEO
The Roman Show spoke to West about the release of the video, which he says is a throwback to what the band grew up watching.
“We’ve seen a couple of bass play throughs from our favorite bands,” he said. “If you look at the old guitar world video that’s typically were those play throughs got started.”
“It is kind of making a comeback. We are big fan of the old guitar world play throughs that we grew up with. They died out for a little, but they are making a comeback.”
Miles is featured on the video.
In their latest track, there are unexpected sounds. While the single features a smooth sound, West unexpectedly features his heavy metal voice. He said this a new sound direction the band has been aiming for.
“We are fans of music and fans of all styles. We did not want to release an album as exact same as the last. Honestly, every album we seek to do something different than the last. This time we tuned our guitars to drop C sorry from drop C to drop B and it gave it some chump. I wanted the vocals to reflect it. It also has that jazzy sound to it.”
The new father later added, “We are huge fans of Faith No More. One of the bands that does that. Of course, they don’t have the genty sound, but if they are playing, they still have the Faith No More sound.”
ANOVA SKYWAY took a brief break, West said aside from creating tunes, they have regular jobs. Balancing time between work, music and personal life could be a challenge, he said. But the band wants to make sure the put out top notch music.
“It’s a blue-collar thing. We are blue collar workers. We are not signed. Its an expensive thing to record quality recordings. We want to record quality recordings,” he said.
Music to bandmembers is catharsis.
“We are blessed doing what would love doing as far as our careers goes. For some of us, we are still in a steppingstone into the next stage. But its natural to have stresses throughout the day to have stresses with any job and with that stress we let it out with the music.”
