WHAT THE BAND SAY:
DP!: How would you describe yourselves to someone who has never heard Canvas before?
Canvas: Canvas play their own unique take on post-hardcore. However, I feel like it’s very hard to pigeon-hole a band like Canvas, which is something I am personally a fan of. I don’t want to be a band that are straight-up one genre. That’s not fun.
DP!: How did the band form?
Canvas: The band form from various smaller local bands we had all messed around in beforehand. It was a very natural process.
DP!:What plans do you have for the future?
Canvas: We’ll put out our debut LP ‘Worry’ via Basick Records on October 6th, then we plan to tour it ’til we’re sick of it.
DP!:Which new bands are you listening to right now?
Canvas: Modern Error are some friends of ours who have just put out their latest project, and it’s amazing! You should go check them out now.
DP!:Which bands do you aspire to and why?
Canvas: GlassJaw / Converge – We want to be that band with the cult following. Nobody wants to be a hype band.
DP!:What’s the stand out moment in your career so far?
Canvas: Honestly, anything that we have done. I am so proud of everything that this band has achieved and continues to achieve. It blows my mind every day!.
Canvas‘s new album, ‘Worry’, is out October 6th 2017 via Basick Records.
