Void Of Vision were recently in the UK touring with Chelsea Grin. Enjoying their set, we caught up with them to find out more.
Can you introduce yourself and tell me a bit about the band?
We are Void Of Vision, five dudes from Melbourne, Australia playing heavy music with a bit of cheek.
You were recently in the UK touring with Chelsea Grin – how did that go?
It was the most rewarding and enjoyable tour the band has done thus far. The crowds, the hospitality and the whole experience completely blew us away, to do what we love on the other side of the world is beyond anything we could ever imagine. So thankful.
Were there any shows that stood out as a highlight for you?
Milan or Helsinki were definitely stand outs for us, the sold out show on a boat in Paris was very hard to top though (never would’ve thought that we’d do anything like that).
Any interesting stories from the tour?
A naked Mitch trying to choke out Jack on the bus after a bit too much vodka is fairly interesting but we’ll save that one for another time.
If you could tour with any band, who would you choose?
Drake – Take Care, 20 year anniversary tour.
You released your debut album Children Of Chrome last year, what’s the reception been like to it so far?
It’s all been very special for us, being the first album we’ve set a bar for ourselves that we’re very happy with. People liked it, people disliked it, it’s been our first experience with a mixed reception on a release but we are very happy that we got that particular reception. Plenty to learn from and inspire us with.
Can you describe the writing and recording process for it?
It was very back and forth over what felt like a very long period of time. It was tricky finding availability that suited both ourselves and Sam (producer) but the drawn out process did prevent any form of rushing the recording period.
Were there any songs that were more of a challenge to complete or did everything pretty much go to plan?
Completing the songs was the easy part, the challenge was choosing what kind of songs we wanted to appear on the album. We wanted to showcase everything and anything that this band could possibly do and we’re happy with the collection that we ended up choosing.
If you could go back and change anything, would you?
I’m sure that we would, but it would take away a lot of what this album means to us. We can’t wait to create more memories like that.
