“I’ve waded through, an ocean of sand, for a grain of doubt. I’m certain, my body is an anchor, when it’s wasted not being beside you”.
Make sure you head out and pick up the new Sharks album when it comes out later this month. I’ve had the chance to spend a lot of time around these guys and watch them grow over the last 3 years. Honestly speaking I could not be any prouder of them, in the same way I’d be proud of family. I’ve not seen them for little under a year, and they are sorely missed.
Rise Records had a lot of controversy from their fans when they signed Sharks. Personally speaking, I admire the guys at the label for the steps they’ve taken to diversify what they do. I do not recognise nor do I understand the people who were moaning about this. Music needs to be put out there in as many forms as possible, and signing a new sounding band to a label, doesn’t mean the label will stop what it’s doing. You’ve got to sit down and appreciate the sound of this band and consider what the lyrics are, and where the music has come from. It astonishes me every time. How can people so young make music so mature? I could go on for hours.
There are a lot of people in the music industry who will often drop names; people in bands who they’ll want to be seen to be associated with. With Sharks, I guess I’m guilty of the same thing, but it’s more in the way of ‘someone stood at the back of a room feeling an overwhelming sense of pride’. Especiallyfor people you’ll never not regard as brothers from other mothers.
