WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
We are from Detroit, Michigan, United States of America!
TELL US HOW YOU FORMED...
Nick (lead guitarist) and Jami (lead vocals/guitarist) formed Chances Are after quitting their hardcore band, Bite The Curve, in 2010. After a few lineup changes, they asked Steve (drummer/back-up vocals) who was their drummer from Bite The Curve, and Adam, who is Nick's childhood friend, to join the band. [On how Jami feels about the band's dynamic] Jami explained, "I guess it's because we all liked each other's butts."
HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH YOUR BAND NAME?
(Jami) I can't honestly remember where the band name came from but people always ask if we named it after the movie "Chances Are". Unfortunately, that isn't true.
DESCRIBE YOUR SOUND IN 5 WORDS FOR SOMEONE WHO'S NEVER LISTENED TO YOUR MUSIC BEFORE...
It's difficult to explain it properly but if we had to, our sound is described as "catchy harmonic punk space party"
WHAT IS YOUR MOST FAVOURITE SONG THAT YOU'VE RELEASED SO FAR?
Steve: "Good Luck"
Adam: "Curious Cat"
Nick: "24 Hour Friend"
Jami: "Stay Creepy! But they're all super fun to play."
