You might remember Duchovny last year as the band that tore up the Brew Co. at Dreyfest 2013. Remember? They were the band that made you say, "Woah! These guys are like... really good... yeah. Jeez. I really like this band. They're... rad." No? Nothing?
Well then, here's your second chance to mumble incoherently about how awesome Duchovny is! They're playing on Friday this year, and they answered some questions whilst on tour!
It's been a year since you guys have played Billings. What's new in your lives?
Donovan got deported so we have a new white bassist. Also, we are now a four piece and we have a lot of new songs.
Since we last spoke, recreational marijuana became legal in your neck of the woods. How has that changed every day life for you guys?
Meth is still illegal so our everyday lives are still a struggle.
|This band? Anything yet? Anything?|
If I had to try and explain your sound by comparing you guys to other bands, I'd probably say it's somewhere between The Dandy Warhols, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, and Grizzly Bear. How accurate is that?
That's a really cool comparison and a good one! We'd say that's pretty accurate. Although, we're a little bit heavier now.
I really like Greeley, it always seemed to be more of a blue-collar interpretation of western and central Colorado, without being too stifling. How do you guys feel about it?
Yeah, we say that's pretty accurate. The people and the campus really make Greeley fun. Without that, it's pretty plain.
I understand you guys will be playing the fest during a tour! Where are you guys going?
Fort Collins, CO; Greeley, CO; Denver, CO; Dallas, TX; Austin, TX; Missoula, MT; DREYFEST; Guantanamo Bay
Andy- you spent the last academic year studying abroad in France. Any hilarious misunderstandings or anecdotes you'd like to share?
It was an affair.
|I love every pixel of this. Every dang one.|
If Duchovny had to either relocate to Fez, Morocco or Phnom Phen, Cambodia, where would you guys go?
Phnom Phen, Cambodia because Dylan has never been to Asia. Actually, none of us have.
What type of food do you think you guys will eat the most of on your tour? Pizza doesn't count because pizza.
PB&J and rice. Together. As one.
Anything else you'd like to say to the Dreyfest citizenry?
Excellent! Missoula friends- go see Duchovny! Austin friends! DON'T see Duchovny. I'll tell you about it later.
Check out Duchovny at the Yellowstone Valley Brewing Company at 4:30 on Friday! See you there (By there, of course, I mean Dreyfest)!
