WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
We are from Germantown Hills, Illinois. It is a suburb right outside of Peoria, Illinois.
WHERE DID GET THE NAME UNAMUSED DAVE FROM?
One of our frontmen, Bryson Maddock, has a dad name Dave. We found some old family pictures of him just staring at the camera, and that is how the name "Unamused Dave" originated.
Emo Pop Punk.
YOU RECENTLY RELEASED YOUR EP LEROY, TELL US A BIT ABOUT IT...
Well 90% of our album was written by our other frontman Seth Wagers. Bryson sings on it too, and he wrote his own lyrics, while our drummer, Jack Dintelman, chipped in a little too. Seth gave our bass player, Brayden Lambiase, a simple bass line and Brayden branched off from there. The EP was started back in September of 2014 and ended up being released on May 29th, 2015. The drums were recorded in a church, while the rest of the EP was recorded in Seth's bedroom.
HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE ARTWORK FOR LEROY?
It is actually an old picture of Seth's uncle, Scott Wagers. Seth saw it at his grandparent's house and thought it would be perfect for a cover.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE SONG FROM LEROY AND WHY?
It is hard to pick a favorite song. It would be like choosing your favorite kid. We love every song equally.
TELL US ONE THING ABOUT UNAMUSED DAVE WE MIGHT BE SUPRISED TO KNOW?
Most bands buy a big van and a trailer to tour in. We fit all our equipment, clothes, food, and ourselves all into a mini van and just recently toured the Midwest. It was all in a mini van.
IF YOU COULD PLAY A SHOW WITH ANY BAND WHO WOULD IT BE?
