Red Bull Studios x Download – Interview with Breathe in the Silence

Potted history of the band…

Formed in August 2012, we’ve had one line up change which was in September 2013. Since then we have recorded and  released our debut self titled EP, played endless amount of shows with the likes of Close Your Eyes, Sworn In, Here Lies A Warning and many more, not to forget more shows to come with For The Fallen Dreams and more.

Mission statement of the band?

Our mission is to reach as many people around the world with our music! This is what all of us want to do with our lives, simply because we love music, love playing live shows no matter how big or small the crowd.

Dream collaboration?

As each of us have similar but also different tastes in music, it’s really hard to narrow it down to just one, but if we were to pick someone, it would probably be Matty Mullins of Memphis May Fire or Mikey Chapman of Mallory Knox.

Stage you’d most like to play?

There’s so many stages we would most like to play but to narrow it down to one, it would have to be Main Stage Download.
