ALL The Skinny

Work. Tour. Work. Tour. It’s a routine that Assemble Me have gotten used to since they started up in 2007. Currently living out the “tour” part of this pattern, they’re out promoting their new release Atelophobia, an album which guitarist and vocalist Dan Thomson calls their "greatest group effort yet", paying special attention to the word “group.”

For the inaugural edition of The Flipside, I thought I would take a moment, introduce myself and let you know what to expect from this column in the months to come.

If you want to impress a Korean friend, try chomping on the still wiggling tentacles of a raw octopus, washing it down with a shot of Soju, and belting out a lively rendition of a Sinatra track of your choice in a sweaty Karaoke room.

Growing up, I was a pop princess. The most influential bands of my childhood were *N Sync, Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, Mariah Carey, and Five (sorry... 5ive). I lived for the release of Planet Pop, hoping beyond hope that *B-Witched would be on it this time around. I’d say I was lying about all this, but, well, that’d be lying.

Low odds, long nights and tour mishaps are likely punches to be thrown at a young touring band. Always expected, but not always predictable, these obstacles could easily prove to become roadblocks that stop a band dead in its tracks. But when Killing for Friday chose to take on the relentless, bloodthirsty motto of “on forth!” they made sure to back it up.

When it comes to music, specifically rock and roll, some bands have been through it all. They’ve lived and seen the highs and lows that the music industry has to offer, been out on what seems like a thousand different tours, played the same song five thousand different times, witnessed the death of friends... In thinking about the life of the touring rock band...
