They are from Texas and currently on European tour with Trivium, As I Lay Dying and Caliban. With their second album Red.White.Green they moved another step up and after summer Mayhem Festival tour where they shared the stage with some of the biggest names, they are now unstoppable to conquer the world!
INSANE BLOG had a pleasure to chat with UPON A BURNING BODY!


It's more than half a year now that Red.White.Green. is out. How are you satisied with the album and with feedback?
It's been great everywhere we have been we are really happy and proud that people are taking a liking to the record. We put a lot of hard work into it so it feels great when people sing along and enjoy them selves as we are.

How did you came up with the name for the album? Roots?
It was a combination of us and our label and just seem to fit well with the sound and theme of the record.

Lyrics on the second album are inspired by Robert Rodriguez movies and have the same titles that include, “El Mariachi”, “Desperado”, “Dusk till Dawn” and “Once Upon a Time in Mexico”. WIth first was Al Pacino movies? What can you tell us more?
Well it worked well with the first record and knowing that even though you may not know who we are but the movie titles stand alone with there own success so it's something to remember. With Robert Rodriguez being a great artist with what he does not to mention being from our home town it just fit together well.

Is really everything bigger in Texas? (a part of lyric in the song Texas Blood Money)
IDE say to come find out for you self to any one asking haha.

You are now on European tour supporting Trivium with As I Lay Dying and Caliban. How is been so far for you guys?
The tour has been a lot of fun as well as a great opportunity for us to be a part of. Trivium is great and we are very great full for them to have us on there tour.

How is the scene this days in Texas?
We think its great and a lot of bands seem to think the same when they play there.

Do you have some new songs already and plans for new album? New theme ?
We are jamming some stuff and trying to feel out the songs to come up with a new idea for the over all theme and so far we are enjoying the way it's going.

You were a part of Mayhem Festival with such big names as Slipknot and Slayer. How was that experience?
That was a dream come true to be able to tour with legendary bands like that. We feel it really helped get our name out there and I was such an honor to get to know some of the musicians that were on that tour and we had a great time on that your and would be honored to do it again and again.

Shout to Insane Blog readers and fans.
To everyone who knows us and for those who don't we are working hard to see everyone and play the best shows for you. Listen to the songs and learn the lyrics to scream them loud and proud.
