Montreal’s Pouzza Fest takes place later this month from May 18-20 featuring some of the best punk music that’s out there! We’re happy that we’ve had the chance to count down to this festival with you. So far we’ve chatted with Lost Love, This Is A Standoff, Duotang, Blurry Eyes, Julius Sumner Miller, Wasted Potential and now the countdown continues with Metal/ Hardcore band, Obey the Brave.
First off, care to introduce yourself to the Canadian Beats readers?
Hey, I’m Cory Wilson and I play bass in Obey The Brave.
Pouzza Fest is an early festival, taking place in May, how do you prefer for festival season?
Yeah, it’s earlier than most festivals but the weather in May is great so I’m stoked!
Have you taken part in Pouzza Fest before? If so, what is your favourite memory?
We haven’t taken part in Pouzza before. But we’re all very excited about it and looking forward to making some memories!
The line-up at Pouzza Fest this year is stellar, who are you most excited to check out?
The line up is great! I’m definitely looking forward to Anti Flag & Cancer Bats the most. But there are tons of awesome bands that I’ll be checking out.
Pouzza Fest’s name comes from the mashup of poutine and pizza, so I feel the need to know, which do you prefer?
Are you performing at any other festivals this summer that you’d like to tell us about?
We’re playing Skate Jam in Rimouski, QC on May 26th, YOFO Fest in Lévis, QC on June 8th and Maritime Metal Fest in Windsor, NS on July 7th.
What five words would you use to describe your live show?
Energetic, Loud, Heavy, Engaging and Fun!
If you were asked to give advice to an up and coming artist, what would that advice be?
Keep creating music that you enjoy creating. Keep performing and continue to grind. There will ups and downs, but in the end, it’s your passion and drive that’s going help you succeed.
What’s up next for you?
Aside from some of the Canadian festivals I mentioned earlier, we have a short east coast Canada tour planned in the summer. This is great because we haven’t been out there in a while! In between all of this we are taking a break from heavy touring to focus on writing new music.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
