Give us a brief rundown

on the history of Amber Pacific to this date? 


Don't miss a beat with our FREE daily newsletter

I started the band as a 3 piece

which turned into 4 then 5 and really became Amber Pacific our senior

year of high school 2002-2003. 


Where did you get the name

from? 


We were formerly known as Follow

Through only to find out that another Follow Through existed on the

east coast thus the name change which has absolutely no meaning whatsoever. 


Your new album

“Truth in Sincerity” has made a great impact on the Billboard Charts

in it’s opening week. Were you guys stoked with the response? 


Of course! We were really hoping

to hit around 10K first week and that’s exactly what we did so we

were pretty pleased with that. 


Mike from MxPx does a guest

appearance on one of the new tracks. How did you hook that up? 


Dango had gotten the opportunity

to play with MxPx during one of the Warped Tour dates awhile back and

kept a solid relationship between himself and the band. I wrote the

song Runaway with Mike’s voice in mind and I’m glad he agreed to

come out and do it. 


What are some of the bands

and artists that have influenced Amber the most? 


I’ve always said different

bands for this question but I’ve now decided that if it weren’t

for Blink 182 Amber Pacific wouldn’t exist. 


Who is your favourite band

to tour with, and if you could tour with any band who would it be? 


For now our favorite band to

tour with has been Just Surrender though Monty Are I were a close second.

If we could tour with any band I’d love to go out with Simple Plan

someday. 


Of all the things that Amber

have achieved, what are some of the things you are most proud of? 


The one thing I am most proud

of is when we got to work with the Make A Wish Foundation last summer

at the Gorge for Warped Tour. A girl named Ashley had a wish that she

could hang out with Amber Pacific for a day and we were lucky enough

to make that wish come true. We hooked her up with a ton of merch and

brought her on stage for her favorite song “Gone So Young”. We’ve

kept in touch with her ever since but I think that has been single handedly

the best moment to date.

When are you gracing Australian

Shores? 


Have no idea! We really want

to get out and start exploring other countries at the end of the year

when no one is touring in the US so hopefully then. 


Thanks for the interview! Short

but sweet.  


Ps. Great album.
