MPM meets... Darkest Hour - December 16th 2006


Darkest Hour have recently completed a UK tour, supported by Between The Buried And Me and Misery Signals. As a band well known in their genre, the Moshpit team couldn't help but delve into their lives a little, so we pulled up a stool and drank a few beers with bass player, Paul Burnette.

MPM meets... Hit The Lights - December 3rd 2006

Hit The Lights formed in 2003 from the ashes of Goodbye Session, naming themselves after a Metallica song. The date is December 3rd 2006, and the Ohioan boys leave the stage after performing as support for New Found Glory. Half an hour later, Moshpit Magazine heads up to their dressing room for an interview, but the sight is not what you expect to see Jordan Pundik, frontman for the night's headlining band, New Found Glory, stands in the centre of the room, ranting about whatever. A plastic cup then flies from his hand and into a table, where it smashes impressively into pieces.
"The interviewer's here," says HTL's tour manager, Evan. The room falls silent as the guys from Hit The Lights, along with Jordan, turn around to face the doorway, innocent smirks plastered across their faces.  "We were just talking about how funny it'd be to scare the shit out of the interviewer before the interview even started," Nate smiles.
