Getting to know /// No Exit Plan

SONY DSCWho can tell about the new band in the best possible way? Of course, the band themselves. I asked No Exit Plan to introduce their collective in their own words.

– How did No Exit Plan begin as a band?
– No Exit Plan started during the Autumn of 2012. Both of us had been in another band for a long time, about 10 years, and we made the decision to start something new and fresh. Our second goal was to raise money for cancer research, the intention being to donate all profits from album sales to this cause.

– How can you describe your sound to someone who’s never heard your music?
– Our first release ‘Out Of The Dark’ is actually a bit of an experiment, blending elements of 80s synth pop with 90s pop-punk.

– Who are your main music influences and inspirations?
– Between us we have a passion for so many different kinds of music. But in relation to No Exit Plan though – we’d have to say John Farnham, Van Halen, Nirvana, Green Day, The Killers, Sia and Weezer have all had an influential nudge to the musical direction. Along with a fair amount of 80’s synth pop.

– What traits make No Exit Plan different from other up-and-coming bands out there?
– First off, we are trying to bring a bit of the 80s to a usually guitar dominated UK pop-punk sound! It was also a goal when we made our album was to raise money for cancer research, all profits from our album sales are being donated.

– What are your plans for 2013?
– This year is going to be spent promoting ourselves, our sound, our album as much as we possibly can whilst, raising money for cancer research and developing a fan base. We also plan to produce another CD by the end of the year.

– Where do you see No Exit Plan in five years?
– Our band is looking to take our sound further, due to how fast we put the group and album together the direction in which we were taking hadn’t been fully established. As time goes on we are hoping our sound will develop and mature, with the goal of producing something unique, original and exciting.
We both LOVE writing and creating music, No Exit Plan is where we join forces. In five years time we hope our fans continue to feel as passionate about our music as we are.
