Resin Interview with Planet Mosh

Resin @ The Queens Hall, Nuneaton 8th June 2014 028
Simon had the pleasure of a chat with David Farrell from Planet Mosh this week. Find out what he had to say…

Guys, thank you for taking the time out to answer these questions for the PlanetMosh readership. For people just finding out about Resin, can you tell me the bands musical direction, attitude and influences?

From day one we’ve always had a love for the whole 90’s grunge thing but you can’t just rewrite classics you have to take what you love and fuse it with what comes from you , Chez who writes the majority of the music is in love with bands like MachineHead so there’s a heavier side to the music too in places , the new members have influenced the new tracks so there’s a refreshing change to how we write songs but the one thing we’ve always been true to is dynamics , light and shade , there’s only one attitude you can have as a band at any level if you want fans and that’s to be professional in everything you do , nobody wants to watch and more importantly spend their money on a band who’s ” just having a laugh “
Enjoy your craft but don’t take the piss out of the public they’ll see right through you

The bands final gig was at the Firebug on Dec 20th 2014, how long after that did you (Chez and Sime ) decide to resurrect the band, and why?

We ( Chez and myself ) started out as just the two of us and have been 90% responsible for the songwriting so during the end of 2014 we thought if it was possible to find the right people to get on board that kept the essence of Resin to justify keeping the name and also the band alive we’d give it a shot , I think we’ve done that and added something fresh at the same time , it’s still Resin just a bit dirtier

This is a new line for the band, how were the new members chosen, Auditions or were they already friends of the band?

We initially sent out demos to interested people and although some of the stuff sent back was extremely good it didn’t hit the spot or it was too far from where people expect us to be sound wise , we were at the point of knocking it on the head to be honest , we’d tried every avenue every vocalist that was interested didn’t fit, then out of the blue Dave Gandon our favourite vocalist from pretty much all the bands we’ve gigged with rings me up saying his band has split and would we be interested in trying him out ? Tagging along for the ride Stu Reynolds on drums from the same now defunct band ( Twisted Species ) who’ve we’ve always respected and along with Dave known well for four years
All of a sudden we just need a bass player ( and if you’ve seen Sev our previous one those are big boots to fill ) to complete the band a quick chat with longtime friend Drask ( who also wears big boots ) and we are in a room rehearsing !!

The first gig with the new line-up was not a low key affair, but a baptism of fire as it was at the very first Breaking Bands festival, did you not have time to do a warm up gig, or did you just think…Fuck It, let’s just do it?

Yeah most definitely “Fuck it let’s do it!” We spent most of the weeks leading up to that gig writing new songs and recording the ep rather than rehearsing , it was a pretty nervy affair but it worked we didn’t die we went down great and the new lads were instantly accepted by long time fans that had gone to the festival purely to witness the reboot

You received rave reviews over your Breaking Bands festival gig, did this help to cement the bands relationships with each other as a live unit?

I think it gave the new lads a confidence boost in honesty , I can’t imagine how they felt walking out on that stage as part of a band that ( I hope ) has a solid background and decent fanbase , I’m sure they felt they were being judged not just by the crowd but chez and myself as well , after playing though we knew it worked , ok it takes time to perfect but what a way to get things rolling !!
On a closing note we would like to thank Jason from Breaking Bands for having the belief in us without seeing or hearing the new lineup to find a slot and let us play the festival.

The Sad Passing of Mage’s Ben Aucott

ben aucott

As you may be aware we lost a great friend yesterday Ben from our closest “mates bands” Mage who sadly passed away. We would love to do something for his family to show how much he was respected and loved in Leicestershire. The comments and posts on social media today have been heartbreaking. So, and it’s not about money that is never going to help but what we will do is for every CD of ours you buy, for every tshirt of ours you buy, for every entry fee on the night including tickets already sold we will collect £1 to give to the lads from Mage to get his late wife a little something that has come collectively from the Leicester rock and metal scene.

We love you Ben \m/

resin ep launch

The Firebug has become a spiritual home for the band so what better place to showcase the new EP ‘Persecution Complex’ than to our home fans. This is our only Leicester show until our Christmas Party in December.

Our special guest support bands are:

Sumer
https://www.facebook.com/SUMERBAND
SUMER began in October 2010 and have since been pushing their unique brand of captivating Prog Rock/Post-Metal throughout the UK, gaining glowing comparisons to the likes of ‘Fugazi playing Tool’, Karnivool, Gojira and even ‘Sepultura meets Soundgarden’, cementing SUMER’s swiftly growing reputation as a band that are destined for great things. “Debut album from five-piece already threatening to go epic…the effect is spectacular” – Malcolm Dome Prog Mag, January 2015

Captain Horizon
https://www.facebook.com/captainhorizon
“Emotional integrity and intellectual rigour married to songs of almost unbearably moving intensity” – Powerplay Magazine

Live, Captain Horizon deliver their songs in a frontal assault of passion, energy, vocal harmonies and charisma. Performance and entertaining their audience are critical as far as Captain Horizon are concerned.

The band was born in the summer of 2008 when Josh and Alex started writing songs that brought together the high energy and intricacy of music from bands like Incubus, Radiohead, Tool and Porcupine Tree, and the classic swagger of stadium bands like AC/DC, Pearl Jam, Pink Floyd and U2. Mez joined shortly after and set about bringing his unique brand of precise and original drumming to the music. Whitty was the last piece of the puzzle, injecting thunderous vocals, unstoppable self belief and the ability to charm any crowd before him.

Beckon Lane
https://www.facebook.com/beckonlane
Their first gig was supporting I Am I at Rock City a couple of months ago, expect big things from these boys in 2015 they’re doing everything right !

Lineup 20th April 2015

We are really excited to announce our first gig with the new line-up of Resin will be at the inaugural Breaking Bands Festival taking place in Bromsgrove on the late May bank holiday weekend. We will be opening the main stage on Sunday after a Resin tradition of free champagne (not bad for 11am!) and a loud shirt competition to pay homage to Simon and his shirt fetish!

With 3 days packed with fantastic bands and Breed 77 finishing off the weekend, we are really looking forward to getting back onto the stage and showing you all what all the fuss is about!

Lineup 20th April 2015

The end of Resin?

10430512_10152287730708097_596042616268308598_n

Hi all Sime here,

For the foreseeable future you won’t be seeing Resin out gigging after our Xmas party.

We’ve had a great time over the years and made some great friends played shows we would never have dreamed of when we first started out, from releasing our debut album, playing Bloodstock 3 times in 2 years, to getting Burn recorded to showcase our march forward, and generally amongst the hard work had the best time a bunch of immature idiots could wish for.

But things change and if we can’t give you 100% then that is unfair on you the people that take the time out to come and see us buy our music and generally put your all into supporting us, you deserve nothing less than that and at this time we can’t deliver that 100%.

So much left unsaid, too many people to thank to even begin naming them but if you’ve been a part of this band in any way, radio, management, bookers, festival organisers, fans, friends and most importantly family, from the four of us, THANK YOU IT’S BEEN A BLAST xx

Our final gig will be at Firebug Dec 20th let’s go out with a bang !!! And we have Mark back on drums for that one so please let’s have a party to remember and who knows what the future holds ?

When we know that I promise you so will you

NEVER SAY NEVER EH!

As a parting gift, you can now download our latest recording “Burn” for free.

Some many of you have left heart felt comments, and we are overwelmed by your support.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Important announcement from Resin

Resin @ The Queens Hall, Nuneaton 8th June 2014 031

It is with regret that we have to announce that our drummer Danny Finch is leaving Resin.

This a decision made my Danny, we are all sad to see him go and wish him luck in his future endeavours, he will be leaving a huge pair of boots to fill.

Danny has taken our live shows to a new level with his performances and energy behind the kit, and in the rehearsal room his input into the writting process has been invaluable.

Here is what Danny had to say.

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce that after Christmas I will no longer be performing with Resin.

It’s been an absolute blast and the guy’s in the band are all absolute gents and a crack to spend time with. I got to live out a childhood dream by playing at Bloodstock festival and this has by far been the best experience I’ve had in a band, but looking back over the past ten years of my life I really don’t have anything to show for it. I’ve gone back to college where I’m studying to be a welder and my aim is to make a career in that line of work and settle down.

Playing with a hard working band whilst I’m studying is just too difficult and it’s not fair on them for me to continue as they go from strength to strength. With this I am also retiring from performing in bands fullstop, however whilst Resin is on the hunt for a new drummer I intend to help them write new music and maybe even session for them in the studio so they can get that 2nd album out there.

For any drummer who’s got what it takes to match this bands high level of talent and stage presence this is a dream band to be a part of, so step on up! If you’re as committed to music as they are then you’ll be glad you did.

So if you want to take up the challenge send us an email via the contact form here.

Or message us on Facebook.

Listen to Resin’s new single – Burn

Resin - Burn

Here it is, fresh from the studio, the first single “Burn” from our forthcoming new album. Let us know what you think!!!!

Resin are going to Bloodstock & Alt-Fest 2014

Resin @ The Queens Hall, Nuneaton 8th June 2014 002

I’ll start this post by saying – FUCKING HELL!!!!!!! We didn’t think this was going to happen.

So it all starts last Sunday 1st June and the TBFM Factor Final. 390 bands got voted down to just 10 bands, and we were one of them. Out of the top 10 bands, organisers from Alt-Fest were instructed to listen to 3 tracks from the 10 bands left, and pick who they wanted at Alt-Fest. They picked us!!! So we will be playing on the Sophine stage at some point over the weekend, we’ll give you day and time when we know. For those of you who haven’t heard of Alt-Fest it’s a brand new festival so head over and find out more. Headlining is Marilyn Manson, The Cult with Dead Kennedy’s, Killing Joke, Arch Enemy, Paradise Lost, Cradle of Filth plus loads of other bands, head over and check it out.

Resin @ The Queens Hall, Nuneaton 8th June 2014 024

Next up was the Bloodstock Metal To The Masses final at The Queens Hall, Nuneaton. After not winner the final last year, and making it all the way there this year, there was nothing we wanted more than to win this competition. The venue was a total sell out with over 300 people crammed into the room. Every band, Curv, Children Lost In Time, Morningstar, The Black Tears and Scattering Ashes all put of excellent performances, but I am totally thrilled to say we won the day. We played as good as we ever have, and couldn’t have done any better.

The crowd was amazing and we want to thank each and everyone of you for supporting us in the TBFM factor and getting us to Alt-Fest, and to all the fans who bought tickets and voted for us during Metal To The Masses.

This means Resin will be playing 2 major festival in 2014, and really has given us a massive step up on the ladder. It’s going to be an awesome summer, so go buy your tickets now, and remember to buy your Bloodstock tickets via our website so we get a cut of the money to fund our second album.

Resin release their first music video for Beskadig

Watch our first music video

Here is a big moment in the life of Resin, our first music video from our debut album “Embrace The Fall” for the unplugged track sung in Africaans – Beskadig.

 

 

Resin hit the studio for the first time!

Resin @ CM Studios, Coventry 8th February 2014 001

Resin entered the studio for the first time ever last Saturday night for a lengthy pre production recording session. Our debut album Embrace The Fall was mainly recording by ourselves at Chez’s house, so this was a first for Resin, and a first in the studio ever for some members.

Resin @ CM Studios, Coventry 8th February 2014 006

We have chosen CM Studios in Coventry to do all our recording for album 2, under the guidance of the awesome Simon Gimli Cliffe. So we gathered and setup to start pre production. We recorded 5 songs, 4 of which anyone who has seen us live will be familiar with, and 1 new song.

Resin @ CM Studios, Coventry 8th February 2014 002

9 hours later we walked out with something we are very happy with. It is sounding awesome, and this is only pre production, no layering, no fancy tricks, no enless takes until everything is perfect, just Resin raw and live.

We are all really excited about album 2 already after this session. So we have more songs to write, more to record, and money to raise!!!!!!!
