Interview: Nervus

The highlight of the festival season is fast approaching, 2000Trees Festival. Set in the idyllic Cotswold hills you will be sure to find your new favorite band.

We had a brief chat with Nervus about who to look out for at 2000Trees and more:

Hello Nervus, how’s it going?

Really good thanks!

How has your 2018 been so far?

It’s been amazing. Touring with loads of awesome bands, having fun, releasing an absolute screamer of an album. It’s been good!

Do you have any top tips for this year’s line up?
Yes. Watch us, watch Funeral Shakes, watch Enter Shikariand watch Conjurer, and watch Gold Key, and PINS, and also Fangclub. Watch them.

What does the rest of the festival season have in store for you?
We’re doing Teddy Rocks, The Great Escape, Truck, 2000 Trees, and some other bits and pieces too in Europe including This Is My Fest in Paris and Booze Cruise in Hamburg. Can’t wait!

Your album ‘Everything Dies’ is one of 2018’s best, does the pressure of all the praise help or hinder your live performances and song writing?
It doesn’t really make any difference to any of it if I’m honest. We manage our own expectations and aren’t too fussed about how our music and performances are perceived. We’re really just here to have fun together and have fun with people who also like to have fun.

As a band you have been asking a lot of questions of the music industry, how can we help you make some much needed changes?
I don’t want to answer this I can’t be bothered. You can print that if you like.

Pronouns are important, how can we all get better at getting these right?

Just ask! People won’t bite your head off. Asking people what pronouns they use should come after asking their name, so you know how to address them you know? We can all make an effort to normalise that and make it common practise. It only takes 10 seconds!

Is there new music on the way?
There’s always new music on the way!
