So for anyone unfamiliar with yourself, tell us a little bit about your backstory and how you ended up here?
So Everyday Dogs really came from me [Jesse Inglima, lead guitarist and backing vocals] and my brother [Julian Inglima, lead vocals and rhythm guitarist] getting together with some friends to jam and play songs we all liked.
For me, I’ve been playing guitar for around 10 years now, and I think anyone that’s ever picked up the instrument has that dream to be up on stage and playing to huge crowds at some point. That was probably the starting point of the long strange journey toward playing in a rock ‘n’ roll band.
What’s Happening Now?
We just released a brand-new single called, “Black Fire”. It’s our heaviest song to date, and was written after I read Bram Stoker’s Dracula for the first time, so there’s a lot of haunted Halloween vibes imbedded in the song too.
We spent the last year in and out of the studio working on new material. “Black Fire” is the first of 6 new songs that we recorded, and we will be releasing more of them as singles in the coming months. We also have a music video for an unreleased song we filmed back in January that we will put out sometime next year.
What are your influences & inspiration?
Jesse Inglima: I’m unapologetically of the Guitar Hero video game generation, so when I was first learning how to play actual guitar, I found myself constantly listening to this crazy mix of ‘70s and ‘80s hard rock with newer ‘00s rock and pop punk stuff from the game’s soundtrack. But I remember hearing Boston for the very first time, and it blew my mind. The guitars on that record sound incredible, I was mesmerized by these mammoth tones and super melodic lead playing. Tom Scholz is a big musical inspiration of mine, and songs like “Peace of Mind” made me want to write and play rock ‘n’ roll.
